INNOVATION

Technological change is accelerating and the contexts in which MSF works are evolving, potentially extremely rapidly, creating new challenges and opportunities in the field. The rapid spread of digital technology has seen contemporary collaborative models emerging throughout the world. The MSF Foundation adopts a collective approach to these challenges to tailor innovation to meet the needs of the field and to enable humanitarian aid to progress.

On the ground

The MSF Foundation works with Field operators to identify the issues and technical shortfalls that hinder operational effectiveness. With philanthropists, partners and experts on the ground, the Foundation engineers solutions to transform operations and improve the quality of care delivered to patients.

Deployment

To ensure the greatest possible impact, the solutions developed by The MSF Foundation are assessed in the field, tested by MSF teams and finalised before being made available to the entire humanitarian sector through an open-source distribution model.

3D Prosthetics

The Médecins Sans Frontières Foundation ventured into the world of 3D technology in an attempt to address the poor access to prosthetics that is the reality across much of the world. If amputees are to regain their physical integrity and autonomy, improving this access is vital.

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.
