War in Gaza:: find out how we're responding

As the world slowly emerged from the havoc caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) pulled together to respond to new emergencies in 2022, while continuing to assist communities affected by longstanding crises. 

After a full-scale attack on Ukraine in February, the tragedy of bloody warfare became the new normal for millions of people. In this perilous and ever-evolving conflict, we strove to find where we could be most useful, to support people caught in precarious circumstances and provide healthcare where needed.

2022 in review

War, violence, natural disasters, disease outbreaks, rising inflation and spiralling prices; these are all factors that contributed to an overall increase in people’s needs, to which nearly 68,000 Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) staff responded in 75 countries around the world in 2022.

Our responsibility towards people we photograph

In 2022, in partnership with a major photo agency, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) published images of a 16-year-old girl who was the victim of rape in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Following widespread criticism, both within MSF and externally, we removed the images from all our platforms.

The controversy sparked a wider conversation about the protection and visual representation of people in the care of MSF, and the circulation of such imagery for editorial, fundraising and commercial purposes.
