Chatham House Prize 2015

Last week I was honoured to attend a gala dinner to celebrate the awarding of the 2015 Chatham House Prize to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), in recognition of their work in combating the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa. MSF admitted 7,400 people to its Ebola treatment centres during the outbreak.

The International President of MSF Dr Joanne Liu gave a very thoughtful thank you speech that highlighted the courage and commitment of MSF doctors, nurses and staff working in most of the world’s war zones over the past 40 years.
