Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare in almost 70 countries around the world. MSF offers assistance to people based on need and irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation. When MSF witnesses serious acts of violence, neglected crises, or obstructions to its activities, the organisation may speak out about this.
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) began working in Lebanon in 1976 in response to the Lebanese Civil War, sending medical teams to the south of the country and Beirut. This was MSF’s first mission to a war zone.
Today, MSF is present in the North of Lebanon, the Bekaa Valley, Beirut and Saïda, offering, free and high quality primary health care  services to people in need continually since 2011. This includes treatment of acute diseases and a comprehensive reproductive health package, in addition to mental health support and health promotion services. MSF also offers treatment for chronic diseases and runs three mother and child care centres across the country.
