When large-scale epidemics occur, when areas in crisis are too dangerous for many others, then the teams of MSF are there to help. They ensure that the affected population has access to medical support.
MSF teams organize basic medical care, treat the injured, carry out vaccination campaigns, train local medical staff and build up medical infrastructure. In long-term aid projects they dedicate themselves to the fight against diseases like tuberculosis, malaria, sleeping sickness, and HIV/AIDS.
The field work of our expats is often very exhausting, but also fascinating, demanding appropriate professional knowledge, and a large amount of motivation and commitment.
Our brochure "Working Abroad" gives an overview and explains what it is like to work for MSF.
Please note: The Austrian office of MSF recruits volunteers from the following countries only: Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, the Kosovo, Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Slovakia or Slovenia.
