TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

Based on technological innovations (3D technologies, artificial intelligence, digital transformation...), we develop solutions to field problems. After a study and test phase, our goal is to deploy those innovations on the MSF Association's fields of action and to share them with the entire sector.

APPLIED MEDICAL RESEARCH

To validate new medical protocols and initiate large scale practice changes, we support medical research conducted by other institutional actors. These researches, carried out in the field, are chosen for their transformative potential.

HUMANITARIAN KNOWLEDGE

Within The MSF Foundation, the CRASH aims to stimulate debate and critical reflection on ground practices and more generally on the humanitarian world. In addition, at The MSF Foundation, we offer scholarships to MSF executives to favor skill building through training.

MiniLab

The aim of the MiniLab project is to design and produce a portable laboratory that can be used in MSF’s programme countries. By adapting existing technology, MSF teams will be able to perform the bacterial analyses required to diagnose certain infections, and to monitor antibiotic resistance and improve the care delivered to patients.
