MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières
) is an international independent medical humanitarian organization, which renders help to people, who have suffered from armed conflicts, epidemics and natural disasters. The organization MSF offers assistance to all people irrespective of their gender, race or religion and political views and adheres to the principles of medical ethics, loyalty, neutrality and objectiveness.
MSF was established in Paris in 1971 as non-commercial and self-regulated entity. The basic principles of its functioning are enclosed in the MSF Charter. Today MSF is a worldwide movement including 23 associations. The organization is 90% financed by private funds.
Thousands of medical as well as administrative professionals are working in MSF. The great majority of MSF medical workers are from the countries, where the organization is providing aid. All in all, people from 60 countries of the world are the team of MSF.
MSF are against the opinion that population of poor countries can only get low level of medical service, it tends to provide high quality of care after all patients. In 1999, when MSF was awarded Nobel Prize, the organization declared that the money which was received together with the award, will be spent for educational work concerning curing the illnesses spread in poor countries.
Recently, MSF pays much attention to the problems of citizens from countries of the third world, who live in slums without any medical services at all. For example, Bangladesh and its capital Dacca, where 80% of the population live in slums without clear water, electricity etc. MSF could not stay away from this severe problem, and in 2010 opened in the slum district Kamrangirchar of the Bangladesh capital Dacca a centre for health and nutrition, which has by now become home for 400,000 people. At the moment MSF continues working in this direction, helping people, who live in slums, to receive medical treatment. MSF is opening new centres not only in Bangladesh, but in other countries, where the issue of extremely low living standard is as much critical. You can find out more about the programs of MSF at the official website of the organization.
InstaForex deems it its duty to help the organization Médecins Sans Frontières, and consequently, all people who are deprived of due medical care. Doing this we consider, that people of the poorest nations, who live in the countries involved in military actions, can obtain a chance to be healthy.
