Be cool: how two innovative new projects from Doctors without Borders are aiming to make a difference

Médecins sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is always looking for ways we can improve the work we do, treating people in need in crisis zones around the world.

As part of this we set up “the Sapling Nursery”, a fund which supports our field teams to develop and tests new ideas. I wanted to let you know about two more innovative projects that have just been funded.
