Médecins sans Frontières is a private international association. The association is
made up mainly of doctors and health sector workers and is also open to all other
professions which might help in achieving its aims. All of its members agree to honour
the following principles:
Médecins Sans Frontières provides assistance to populations in distress, to victims
of natural or man-made disasters and to victims of armed conflict. They do so
irrespective of race, religion, creed or political convictions.
Médecins Sans Frontières observes neutrality and impartiality in the name of universal
medical ethics and the right to humanitarian assistance and claims full and unhindered
freedom in the exercise of its functions.
Members undertake to respect their professional code of ethics and to maintain
complete independence from all political, economic, or religious powers.
As volunteers, members understand the risks and dangers of the missions they carry
out and make no claim for themselves or their assigns for any form of compensation
other than that which the association might be able to afford them.
