Update: COVID-19

Our emergency teams are experts at fighting disease outbreaks. With your support, we can help save the lives of people battling COVID-19.

Right now, Médecins Sans Frontières is providing urgently needed medical care and support in more than 50 countries to counter the COVID-19 pandemic.

We understand how to prioritise lifesaving efforts in the midst of an epidemic raging in a war zone. We know how to manage an overflow of patients while also minimising the risk of contagion. Our teams around the world are sharing this expertise with authorities at health ministries, refugee camps, and prisons, and with staff working in non-Médecins Sans Frontières clinics and hospitals.

How we're responding to COVID-19

We’re sending medical teams

Our emergency medical teams are working alongside local healthcare staff on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19.

We’re helping vulnerable communities

From war-torn Syria and Yemen to vast refugee camps in South Sudan and Bangladesh, we’re doing all we can to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep existing projects running.

We're protecting healthcare staff

We're setting up lifesaving infection prevention and control measures that will protect patients and keep frontline staff safe and healthy.

We're sending medical supplies

Our logistics teams are delivering the tools to beat COVID-19, from medicines and protective equipment to state-of-the-art mobile hospitals.
