2015: A year in pictures

This year, photographers accompanied our medical teams across the world as they responded to events that have proven 2015 to be a particularly traumatic year.

From death and destruction on unprecedented scales in Syria, Yemen and Ukraine, natural disasters in Nepal and Malawi, a refugee crisis in Europe of previously unseen proportions, as well as the nearing end of Ebola in West Africa, 2015 has been a year in crisis.

These events shook the international community and MSF itself as a brutal new trend of war emerged with increasing attacks on hospitals, seemingly normalising a blatant disregard for international humanitarian law.

The photographs here testify to these and many other instances where MSF teams provided medical humanitarian assistance. Delivering care where it is needed most is our motivation, bearing witness to human suffering through photography and the written word is also our duty.

From everyone at MSF, we would like to express our deepest thanks for your support this year.
