Doctors Without Borders Turns 50



For decades, Doctors Without Borders has provided crucial medical care to disaster victims around the world. This year marks a special milestone for the organization, as it is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Doctors Without Borders was founded in Paris, France, in 1971. Known as Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF) in French, it was created by a group of young, idealistic medical students. These students believed that all people have a right to medical care, irrespective of where they live. Little did they know that their organization would go on to revolutionize the idea of international emergency aid.

The group undertook its first mission in 1972. That year, its members traveled to Managua, the capital of Nicaragua, in order to provide relief to earthquake victims. In 1975, MSF established its first official medical program to provide care for thousands of refugees fleeing oppression in Cambodia.

Since 1980, the organization has grown to encompass over 30,000 volunteers, with offices in over 65 countries. Its doctors have treated over 100 million patients, many of whom had no other access to medical care.

Importantly, the majority of MSF’s funding comes from private donors. This ensures that the organization stays independent, allowing its members to speak out against injustices in different countries.

One notable example occurred in Rwanda in 1994, when doctors began calling attention to the genocide that was taking place there. For their fearless efforts, Doctors Without Borders received a Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.

Today, Doctors Without Borders is engaged in numerous projects around the world. From helping people displaced by civil wars to fighting viruses and saving migrants in the Mediterranean, the organization continues to carry out its mission of helping those in need.
