Doctors Without Borders: lessons learned

This looks like a really interesting new publication by the Nobel Prize winning organization MSF. Download the book in pdf form for free here.
"Medical Innovations in Humanitarian Situations explores how the particular style of humanitarian action practiced by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has stayed in line with the standards in scientifically advanced countries while also leading to significant improvements in the medical care delivered to people in crisis. 
Through a series of case studies, the authors reflect on how medical aid workers dealt with the incongruity of practicing conventional evidence-based medicine in contexts that require unconventional approaches."

  1. Interesting. Is this about practitioners without the proper credentials who perform and stay in line with medical standards of advanced countries?
