About the organisation

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) translates to Doctors without Borders. We provide medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare. Our teams are made up of tens of thousands of health professionals, logistic and administrative staff - bound together by our charter. Our actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality. We are a non-profit, self-governed, member-based organisation.

We first established a mission in Bangladesh in 1985 and have had a continuous presence in the country since 1992. Before August 2017, we had one project in Kutupalong, Cox’s Bazar; we now run multiple hospitals, primary health centres, and health posts in and around camps on the peninsula.

We also work in Kamrangirchar, one of the biggest slum areas in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka. Our staff provide vital healthcare and mental health services to women living in this densely populated community.

The vast majority of patients who seek counselling have been abused by a family member they are still living or in close contact with.
