It is an international humanitarian medical non-governmental organization (NGO) of French origin best known for its projects in conflict zones and in countries affected by endemic diseases. In 2015, over 30,000 personnel -mostly local doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, logistical experts, water and sanitation engineers, and administrators- provided medical aid in over 70 countries. Most staff are volunteers. Private donors provide about 90% of the organization's funding, while corporate donations provide the rest, giving MSF an annual budget of approximately US$1.63 billion. Doctors Without Borders was founded in 1971, in the aftermath of the Biafra secession, by a small group of French doctors and journalists who sought to expand access to medical care across national boundaries and irrespective of race, religion, creed or political affiliation.
