Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Doctors of the World (MdM) and Doctors without Borders (MSF)?

One of the founding doctors of MdM, Bernard Kouchner, was also a co-founder MSF in 1971. After a disagreement over organizational policy, Kouchner and some of his colleagues branched off to create an organization that went beyond MSF’s mission of providing emergency medical aid.

Doctors of the World provides health care in developing and developed countries long after emergencies have disappeared from the spotlight. MdM offers long-term health care solutions, focusing on sustainability and bearing witness to suffering. MSF and MdM have no formal affiliation.
