MSF runs operations around the globe through 5 Operational Centres (OCs). An International Office based in Geneva ensures the coordination between OCs. The Operational Centre Brussels (OCB) is the largest OC in the MSF movement in terms of budget and runs humanitarian actions in more than 30 countries.


MSF’s financial autonomy depends heavily on the trust of donors, and the proportion of private income. Accountability and transparency are key elements of the Finance strategy that is contributing to strengthen the trust from the different stakeholders (donors, beneficiaries, employees, Board members, association members...).

These resources refer to both tangible (funds, human resources, goods and assets) and intangible resources (services, information, data, knowledge and reputation). 

ii)             to flag any compliance breach with MSF standards (policies, procedures), applicable regulations and contracts that may negatively affect MSF’s resources.
