MSF has carried out projects in South Africa since 1999. In 2007, MSF consolidated its presence in the country by opening a delegate office in Johannesburg, which is part of a network of 20 MSF offices worldwide.
MSF South Africa recruits medical staff and other professionals to work in MSF projects around the world while also raising funds to support our international work.
We share information with the South African public, the media, government agencies, and other non-governmental organisations to raise awareness about the plight of those people we assist. MSF South Africa also supports MSF programmes in the region by providing medical expertise, including specific medical training for MSF field staff.
