The Displacement Unit offers direct field support to operations by exploring, testing, adapting and developing solutions that meet the needs in emergency relief.

The Displacement Unit was created in 2015 by the direction of operations of MSF OCBA with the aim of delivering adapted products to the field that address emerging operational challenges related to refugee, internally displaced and people on the move.
Today the unit delivers products and concepts during the first weeks of an emergency and continuously creates empirical knowledge about innovative responses to humanitarian crisis.
Cells and missions of MSF OCBA are in contact with the Displacement Unit to frame operational challenges, identify and test new solutions, both logistic and medical. The Displacement Unit partners with a large network of organizations and companies from different sectors.

Our moto? Operations innovate, we facilitate.
