1. General introduction

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is a private and independent international medical aid organisation. It was founded in 1971 by a group of French doctors and journalists. Whether it is war-wounded people in Yemen, displaced populations in South Sudan or patients with tuberculosis in Central Asia: MSF provides medical aid in more than 70 countries worldwide. The projects are targeted especially at people in need who do not have access to sufficient medical treatment or who are barred from aid. Ärzte ohne Grenzen e.V. in Germany is one of the 24 membership organisations of MSF. The main focuses of our work lie in the management of field projects, recruitment of field personnel, raising awareness about humanitarian issues, and fundraising. In 2017, Ärzte ohne Grenzen e.V. collected roughly 153 million Euros in private donations and other income and is currently employing more than 200 staff in Germany.
