MSF Sweden Innovation Unit
The MSF Sweden Innovation Unit is under the umbrella of MSF Sweden, which is one of the 24 associations in the global MSF movement. Each association is attached to one of the five Operational Centres (OC), based in Belgium (OCB – Brussels), France (OCP – Paris), Holland (OCA – Amsterdam), Spain (OCBA – Barcelona/Athens), and Switzerland (OCG – Geneva).

The principles and charter of MSF.
“Innovation is about co-creating and implementing products, services and processes that improve our capability to effectively save lives and alleviate suffering.”
Maximizing the innovation capability of MSF.
In the humanitarian sector, where responding quickly to rapidly emerging crisis situations is absolutely crucial, humanitarian organizations struggle to maintain a balance between addressing short-term needs and building the capability to meet long-term challenges. MSF Sweden Innovation Unit explores a human-centered approach for promoting a culture of innovation within MSF, to more effectively co-create innovations that save lives and alleviate suffering.
Supporting MSF Operational Centres.
One of MSF Sweden’s objectives is to support the Operational Centres (OC) with more than financial and human resources. MSF Sweden Innovation Unit is one such contribution, allowing Operational Centres to more effectively explore needs, problems and opportunities within and outside of the organization.
The foundation for innovation.
