Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent medical humanitarian organisation that provides medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare.  

MSF’s medical-operational guidelines provide clear recommendations and standardized protocols for use in resource-limited environments. The guidelines reflect the know-how gained through our operations and draw from the scientific data published by the World Health Organization and other leading medical institutions and scientific literature. They evolve over time as they are regularly reviewed and improved. All publications are the result of a collaborative effort between MSF’s medical departments, the International medical guidelines team as well as contributors and experts from other institutions. 
We encourage our readership to take part in improving MSF’s medical guidelines by writing to the International medical guidelines team via the “contact” page and leaving comments and suggestions.
