Within MSF, the Finance Department aims to ensure that the resources committed make a successful contribution towards the implementation of operational objectives.
MSF’s financial autonomy depends heavily on the trust of donors, as the major part of the revenue comes from private donors.
The objective of Finance Department is to provide support to the management in order to ensure the funds are used adequately in accordance with our accountability principles and to enable the optimal use of financial resources.
