Meet Doctors without Borders

Do you know that…

… one fourth of the world’s population lacks access to essential medicines? (in the poorest parts of Africa and Asia this figure rises to 50%)

… vaccines are one of the most effective public health interventions available, but at least 1.5 million children still die each year from vaccine-preventable diseases?

… more than 232 million children around the world last year suffered from malnutrition?

Doctors Without Borders is an organization which try to resolve these problems?

Have you ever heard about them?

Doctors Without Borders (also known as Médecins Sans Frontières, MSF) is an international humanitarian organization that provides medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare in over 70 countries around the world. It is also a perfect place for those who want to deliver medical aid where it’s needed most. Maybe also for you?

Sounds interesting?

Join our meeting with Magdalena Michalska and Ariel Zielinski to learn more! They will introduce the organization, share their experiences from various countries they have worked in and some insights into the organization’s programs and daily life realities of working for MSF – from emergency to long-term projects.

Magdalena Michalska worked with Doctors without Borders as a MD, Obstetrician and Gynecologist. She was managing teams of doctors, nurses and midwifes to provide a high level of medical care to mothers and newborns in MSF facilities in Tanzania (Nduta refugee camp) and Iraq (Mosul). Currently she lives and works in Poland.
