MSF Scientific Day

MSF Scientific Days 2016

The MSF Scientific Days 2016 took place in London, New Delhi and Johannesburg. Over 11,000 people from 125 countries participated.

Key Messages from the MSF Scientific Days

  • Syria – the need to do more, do it better, and be creative in how we work.
  • Humanity, relationships, community engagement are central – whether designing technology, running a refugee camp, or delivering HIV care.
  • Innovation needs rigorous evaluation and the willingness to "fail forward and learn".
  • Choose the right research questions then make sure your findings lead to change.
  • Ethics systems in humanitarian settings need work – for both research and innovation.
  • Drug resistant infections: challenges of resource-rich world also faced in humanitarian settings – we just often fail to investigate or diagnose them late.
  • Hepatitis C is a challenging disease but good treatment outcomes are possible in vulnerable groups as long as access to affordable drugs is maintained
