MSF is often associated with doctors who risk their lives when they treat war injuries in dangerous situations. Certainly it is difficult and challenging to provide primary health care in complex emergencies, but the work is not always as spectacular and heroic as people think.
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) promotes a working environment free of harassment and abuse. Our leadership has unequivocally committed to fight abuse and to reinforce mechanisms and procedures to prevent and address it.
These Behavioural Commitments are considered as a minimum behavioural standard, more specific rules may apply to MSF staff members depending on the context in which they work and their area of activity.
