What is the Association?

The MSF organisation structure has an associative and an executive dimension. MSF Hong Kong is one of the 25 associations of the MSF International. These associations make up the associative dimension, while the offices of the MSF sections form the executive.
The Associative:
Through MSF associations, members voice their opinions and contribute to the definition and implementation of MSF’s social mission. The associations safeguard the identity of MSF, ensuring that activities and operations stay true to MSF’s Charter, principles and social mission. By joining an association, members engage in the collective ownership of MSF and oversight of its leadership. The associations function in a participatory way. The Association delegates MSF’s day-to-day decision-making and strategic planning to a Board of Directors whose members are elected by the associates in the course of the annual General Assembly

The Executive:

The executive is responsible for day-to-day management and support of operations. The MSF-HK office, working under the supervision of the Executive Director, is responsible for carrying out daily activities within the framework set by the Board (Annual Plan, Strategic Plan, Budget) and the MSF principles and values as outlined in the MSF Charter, the Chantilly Document and the La Mancha Agreement.
