Once a year, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) holds MSF Scientific Day – a conference to present scientific research carried out in our programmes around the world.
There was huge competition for spaces this year and we were very grateful to our Scientific Day editorial reviewing team drawn from across MSF, Epicentre, the Access Campaign, and the journals PLOS Medicine, and Conflict and Health.
Key speakers included Hans Rosling, a professor and TED talks alumnus. He has been an adviser to WHO and UNICEF and co-founded MSF in Sweden. Also Paul McMaster, President of MSF UK, Marc DuBois, Executive Director, MSF UK, along with numerous other speakers covering a broad range of topics.
There was also a panel discussion on Assessing and Improving the Impact of MSF’s Research, with Philipp du Cros acting as chair, and panellists Dermot Maher (Wellcome Trust), Manica Balasegaram (MSF Access Campaign), Virginia Barbour (PLOS Medicine) and Helen Bygrave (MSF).
Our 2013 programme was packed with presentations that reflect the diversity of MSF projects and patients.
