Today MSF runs 468 projects in 71 countries. Over the years, our medical humanitarian organisation has expanded from a small group of doctors and journalists to a global movement with almost 40,000 staff. However, after 47 years of operations, our fundamental mission and values remain unchanged: to provide essential medical care for those who need it most, regardless of race, religion or political affiliation.

Our operations in Palestine are not as large as those in some other countries, however, they have always been significant.
