    Request a speaker

    Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) regularly sends speakers to give medical, academic, and community groups presentations throughout Southeast Asia, East Asia and the Pacific region, and other countries around the world.

    Due to an increased interest in Médecins Sans Frontières(MSF)/Doctors without Borders' activities in recent years and a limited number of field workers available to participate in speaking events, more requests are made for speakers than can be fulfilled. Please review the following guidelines before requesting a speaker.

    MSF encourages requests from the following:

    • National and regional conferences focusing on international medical humanitarian concer
    • Medical, public health care, and international affairs schools and institutions
    • University and community groups interested in international medical humanitarian concerns
    • Groups of 50 people or more

    Speaker requests from the above groups will be considered individually, with special consideration for events focusing on public health and international medical humanitarian issues.

    To provide sufficient time to search for an appropriate speaker, please submit your request 4-8 weeks before the event's date.

    Event dates submitted beyond 3-6 months in advance are difficult to fill due to our reliance on field workers and their work rosters and overseas missions.
