The year in review

In 2019, approximately 65,000 staff from Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) provided medical and humanitarian assistance to people in more than 70 countries.

The Ebola outbreak in northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) continued to rage, alongside the worst-ever measles epidemic, while further east, two cyclones and severe flooding devastated parts of Mozambique, Sudan, and South Sudan. Conflict caused extreme suffering across the Sahel and in Yemen, and thousands of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers remained trapped in Libya, Greece and Mexico, exposed to violence and disease.

We dedicate this overview of our activities to our donors, whose generosity enabled our staff to put their skills at the service of patients and communities wherever we were able to work.
