Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an independent international medical humanitarian aid organization dedicated to providing specialized medical care to vulnerable populations in crises (armed conflicts, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from health care), based on need alone, regardless of ethnicity, gender, creed or political affiliation.
About MSF Luxembourg
MSF Luxembourg was founded in 1986. The association's objectives are to raise awareness of humanitarian issues among the Luxembourg population, collect the funds necessary to finance interventions, supervise MSF volunteers who go into the field and carry out dozens of operational research directly linked to the operations to make them more efficient.
Since 2009, MSF Luxembourg has been putting its expertise at the service of the development of medical research in the field thanks to the operational research unit's skills in Luxembourg, known as LuxOR (Luxembourg Operational Research).
Operational research, an obvious choice for MSF
While MSF provides medical assistance to populations living in challenging environments with limited resources, Operational Research is designed to evaluate and improve practices within health programs to help health workers find concrete solutions adapted to their patients' specific situations in crisis contexts.
Providing access to quality care for vulnerable populations is in MSF's DNA, and Operational Research brings exceptional added value to meeting these challenges.
The main field of action: International solidarity
