The OR Day is an event dedicated to sharing the latest operational research findings and exploring strategies for evidence-based policy and practice change. Hosted by MSF’s operational research unit LuxOR, the South Africa Medical Unit SAMU, and the MSF Operational Centre OCB in Brussels every year in late spring, the OR Day brings together researchers, medical professionals, and field staff from MSF and partner organizations.
