With medical experts in countries worldwide, we have independent insights into global health challenges you won't find anywhere else.

We respond immediately to emergencies, sending teams of health experts to the frontline to save lives. All around the world, natural disasters, conflict and disease threaten people’s livelihoods and destroy their communities, with consequences that last long after the TV cameras have moved on. Merlin has responded to some of the most serious humanitarian emergencies of recent history.

But, just as importantly, Merlin stays. Merlin’s long-term work is vital, not just because it is needed to tackle huge, enduring problems like childhood diseases, but because it helps us to respond to new emergencies more quickly and more effectively. Very often, when disaster strikes a particular country, we can act immediately because we are already there.

Here you can see what our experts see, and understand the challenges they face. You can also visit the Merlin blog or our image and video galleries.
