    On the Pulse of Humanitarian Medical Assistance

    LuxOR directly supports MSF in providing medical assistance to vulnerable populations in difficult and resource-limited contexts. The operational research projects cover the wide range of humanitarian medical care from maternal and child health, infectious diseases like measles or malaria, mental health, water, sanitation, and hygiene to antimicrobial resistance.   

    OR-studies analyze innovations or identify constraints in operational settings, and build valuable evidence on how to adapt or expand programmes. Once a study is peer-reviewed and published, it helps advocate for policy and practice change translating findings back into action. LuxOR also supports various field-based data collection and analysis activities and runs dedicated OR-trainings.
