Members are essential to the movement. MSF is unique in the humanitarian world in its associative approach to internal governance and its culture of discussion and debate. The associations offer opportunities for MSFers to voice their opinions and place the responsibility of preserving the core mandate of MSF's medical humanitarian action in their hands.

Members move MSF forward, not only because of their volunteering out in the field, but also thanks to their thoughtful approach to our work. Their continued reflection helps MSF to provide the best treatment for patients and the most effective aid for those in precarious situations.
