Our COVID-19 Partners

Doctors Without Borders (MSF)’s swift responses to the COVID-19 emergency in South Africa depends on the sustained independent, private funding from local business, charitable foundations, and private individuals alike. Our recently launched COVID-19 Crisis Fund has seen growing support, currently reaching 51.33% of the required R35 million target.


With the continued contribution towards our COVID-19 Crisis Fund, our generous partners enable us to:

  • Provide practical interventions to support the National Department of Health’s COVID-19 response across four provinces: Gauteng, North West, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal,
  • Ensure a continued duty of care towards our existing projects focusing on vulnerable groups such as pregnant women and their infants, youth, and migrants on issues related to HIV/TB and sexual Gender-Based Violence (SGBV),
  • Procure good quality Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for the safety of our medical and support staff and that of the patients they serve, to facilitate screening, testing, and contact tracing for COVID-19,
  • Provide health awareness messages to communities around the world to dispel myths about COVID-19 and promote healthy behaviour.

Our partners’ trust and support allows us to remain independent, act quickly, and go where the need is greatest to ensure access to basic healthcare to all people, during pandemics like COVID-19 and other crises.

Our gift acceptance policy

MSF Southern Africa is part of the global MSF movement, at the core of our work is a commitment to independence, neutrality, and impartiality. These principles make it possible for our teams to gain access to those who urgently need medical care, and to remain safe while providing this care. These values also enable us to assist everyone regardless of gender, race or political background. Medical ethics and patient-centeredness are guiding principles. This makes MSF the unique organisation that it is.

It is for this reason that we do not take funds from businesses working in industries that are in conflict with our humanitarian goals and values. MSF does not accept gifts from companies in the following categories:

  • Military and arms industry
  • Tobacco and alcohol industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Extraction industry (oil, gas, mining)
