MSF Operational Research Day

    The OR-day is a dedicated event to share the latest operational research findings and discuss how to translate them into changing policies and practices. Hosted every June by LuxOR in Brussels, the OR-day brings together researchers, medical professionals and field staff of MSF and partner organizations.

    OR Day 2018   

    The OR Day 2018 took place in Brussels and live streamed on 1 June 2018.

    This year’s panel topics focused on providing care for migrants, refugees, and victims of sexual violence, latest findings from HIV- and TB programmes in Malawi and Mozambique, and featured presentations on infectious and non-communicable diseases.

    The OR Day is open to MSF colleagues, partners, and external guests and can be followed live online. For questions and further information, reach us at or@luxembourg.msf.org.
