Doctors Without Borders, USA

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971. Today, MSF provides aid in nearly 60 countries to people whose
survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need. MSF reserves the right to speak out to bring attention to neglected
crises, to challenge inadequacies or abuse of the aid system, and to
advocate for improved medical treatments and protocols. In 1999, MSF received the Nobel Peace Prize. In 2007, MSF-USA raised $152.1 million, representing 20 percent of the MSF network's private funding. It sent 200 aid workers to work overseas, liaised with a wide range of US media, organized high-level meetings with UN and US government officials, and arranged regular
speaking events and activities across the US.
