MSF releases new medical guidelines app
MSF has been producing medical guidelines for staff for more than 25 years, based on scientific evidence and experiences from our work in the field. The guidelines are the collaborative work of several experienced medical practitioners and specialists, and were developed for non-specialised medical staff. Data sources include the World Health Organization (WHO) and other internationally-recognised medical institutions, as well as medical and scientific journals.
The app was developed to improve access to the latest medical guidelines for field workers across MSF projects, also serving as a useful tool for training medical staff on mission. The guidelines are used by a number of other international organisations, such as WHO and UNICEF.
The MSF Medical Guidelines mobile application allows users to browse, save and download content in high and low quality resolutions to view remotely in the field. It’s available to download for free in the Apple App Store, Google Play and for Microsoft, as well as at medicalguidelines.msf.org.
