Médecins Sans Frontières regularly sends speakers to give presentations to medical, academic, and community groups throughout Australia and New Zealand.
How to Request a Speaker
Due to an increased interest in Médecins Sans Frontières' activities in recent years and a limited number of aid workers available to participate in speaking events, more requests are made for speakers than can be fulfilled. Please review the following guidelines before requesting a speaker.
Médecins Sans Frontières encourages requests from the following:
- National and regional conferences focusing on international medical and humanitarian concerns
- Medical, public health, and international affairs schools and institutions
- University and community groups interested in international medical and humanitarian concerns
- Groups of 50 people or more
Speaker requests from the above groups will be considered on an individual basis, with special consideration for events focusing on public health and international health and international humanitarian issues.
In order to provide sufficient time to search for an appropriate speaker, please submit your request 4-8 weeks prior to the date of the event. Event dates submitted beyond 3-6 months in advance are difficult to fill due to our reliance on field workers and their work rosters and overseas missions.
