2Program expenses represent expenses incurred in the field or by headquarters on behalf of the field. All expenses are allocated in line with the main activities performed by MSF according to the full cost method. Therefore, all expense categories include salaries, direct costs and allocated overheads (e.g. building costs and depreciation).
As part of MSF’s effort to guarantee its independence and strengthen the organization’s link with society, we strive to maintain a high level of private income. In 2019, 96.2 per cent of MSF’s income came from private sources.
More than 6.5 million individual donors and private foundations worldwide made this possible. Public institutional agencies providing funding to MSF included, among others, the governments of Canada, Japan and Switzerland, the Global Fund and the International Drug Purchase Facility (UNITAID).
