Help us respond to the coronavirus pandemic and other emergencies around the world
OUR URGENT NEEDS IN THE FIELD
Our teams are responding to the coronavirus emergency on multiple front in health facilities around the world. MSF is also working with local authorities in many of the countries where we have medical projects to help support the COVID-19 response. A key priority is to keep our regular medical programs running for the tens of thousands of patients we help support. This pandemic threatens the lives of people around the world, and presents even greater risks in countries with weak or fragile health systems. You may apply for either a specific advertised post or to join one of our pools.
Exceptionally, MSF recruits localized positions for specific missions.

Every year, over 2,000 international staff leave to go on missions, joining almost 8,000 national personnel in field operations. MSF teams must remain strictly neutral and impartial during missions, and be able to claim complete autonomy whilst carrying out their duties.
