In 2016, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)'s worked in more than 60 countries worldwide, delivering lifesaving emergency medical care to people made vulnerable by disaster, conflict or lack of access to urgent health services.

Canada plays a crucial role in MSF's work: Not only does the support of people from across the country enable us to deliver care wherever and whenever it is needed most, but Canadians themselves are on the front lines of MSF's humanitarian interventions in record numbers. In 2016, 343 Canadians left home to work overseas with MSF — as doctors, nurses, logisticians, coordinators, heads of mission, engineers, administrators, medical specialists and more — to help people affected by suffering receive the care they deserve.

The Canadians listed below joined thousands of local MSF staff members around the world in 2016 in response to health crises created by war, neglect, poverty or natural disasters; they travelled to remote villages, teeming cities and conflict zones; and they donated their time, skills, expertise and empathy to make a difference in the lives of those who may otherwise have had no hope.

We thank them for their efforts, their commitment and their compassion, and extend our appreciation to all those who continue to carry out MSF's vital humanitarian work now and in future.
