In 1999, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) / Doctors Without Borders (DWB)- set up in 1971 by a group of French doctors - received the Nobel Peace Prize. DWB's strategy has always been to combine humanitarian work with political consciousness by standing up for human rights.
Today, with offices in 18 countries, DWB has gained a reputation throughout the world for fearlessness and excellence. However, one recurring question is why would a doctor give up a comfortable lifestyle to work in areas of conflict and destitution.
For DOCTORS ON THE FRONT LINE, DWB has allowed a film crew unique access to its missions in Haiti, Sudan, Honduras and Somalia to witness how it delivers a lot more than medical aid, and to find out what makes highly qualified people become humanitarian legionnaires.
