Membership

 
By joining an association, members engage in the collective ownership of MSF and oversight of its leadership. Membership means you can demonstrate and exercise your individual commitment to humanitarian action and keep MSF true to its mission. You can become involved in many ways: by speaking, sharing, questioning, criticizing and debating. 
 
As a member you also have the right to vote, the right to propose motions, and the right to become a candidate for the Board. The members of the association also elect the members of the Board. Such involvement is essential to create and sustain a vibrant culture and makes MSF a critical and dynamic international movement.
