Agreements with hospitals

In order to facilitate mission departures for doctors and other healthcare professionals, Médecins Sans Frontières has worked to establish cooperation agreements with healthcare institutions, especially hospitals.

To date, cooperation agreements have been signed with the following hospitals and others are being prepared:

In the Czech Republic:

  • Fakultní nemocnice Brno
  • Fakultní nemocnice Hradec Králové
  • Fakultní nemocnice Královské Vinohrady
  • Fakultní nemocnice Olomouc
  • Fakultní nemocnice Plzeň
  • Fakultní nemocnice v Motole
  • Krajská zdravotní, a.s. - Masarykova nemocnice v Ústí nad Labem, o.z.
  • Krajská zdravotní, a.s. - Nemocnice Chomutov, o.z.
  • Krajská zdravotní, a.s. - Nemocnice Děčín, o.z.
  • Krajská zdravotní, a.s. - Nemocnice Most, o.z.

In Slovakia

  • Univerzitná nemocnica Martin

The cooperation agreements enable employees of these hospitals, under certain conditions, to participate in MSF’s Assessment Center (part of the recruiting process), pre-departure training (PPD), and the mission itself. The basic condition is the approval of a request submitted by MSF to the hospital’s senior staff and head of its personnel department.

The hospitals agree to allow their employees to go on missions of up to three months in one calendar year, based upon receipt of a request from Médecins Sans Frontières. In the case of missions longer than 3 months, employees will be given leave of one month. The hospitals undertake to provide unpaid leave for participation in the Assessment Center and the MSF mission itself.

Some hospitals, however, have agreed to provide paid leave to their staff going on mission with MSF for a maximum of three months.

For more detailed information on the agreements that have been concluded, please contact the relevant hospital or the Medecins Sans Frontieres office in Czech Republic.
