A Conversation with Sophie Delaunay, Executive Director, MSF-USA
What are some priorities for MSF-USA in the coming years?
We want to continue providing a critical amount of resources to the overall MSF movement, providing financial support and supporting human resources with the expertise we can offer, and in areas like communications and advocacy as well. We also want to further strengthen the medical expertise that we provide to operations. This will translate into the development of a new health information system, which will be a very big dossier. We will also continue to provide expertise in areas like antibiotic resistance and neglected tropical diseases. The ultimate goal is to improve the quality of our care and develop therapeutic or preventive approaches that are more adaptive to the needs in the field.

Our Alert newsletter for spring 2012 is now available online. 

While MSF has been unable to work directly in Syria, it has collected testimonies from wounded patients treated outside the country and from doctors inside Syria. These testimonies point to a coordinated crackdown on the provision of urgent medical care for people wounded in Syria’s ongoing violence. 

Also in this issue: Two MSF field journals from South Sudan, an interview with Emmanuel Baron, executive director of Epicentre, and photos from MSF’s trauma center in Kunduz, Afghanistan.
