MSF has an associative structure, where operational decisions are made, largely independently, by the five operational centres (Amsterdam, Barcelona-Athens, Brussels, Geneva and Paris). Common policies on core issues are coordinated by the International Council, in which each of the 24 sections (national offices) is represented. The organization actively provides health care and medical training to populations in about 70 countries and frequently insists on political responsibility in conflict zones such as Chechnya and Kosovo. MSF has general consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. MSF should not be confused with Médecins du Monde (Doctors of the World, in English).

FAO: FAO Home Australian Aid Australian Aid is the Australian Government agency responsible for managing Australia's overseas aid program. Australian Aid provides advice and support to the Minister for Foreign Affairs, presently the Hon. Julie Bishop MP on development policy, and planned and coordinated poverty reduction activities in partnership with developing countries. History[edit] The agency saw a variety of names and formats. It also saw repeated cuts to aid contributions during its lifetime, as the level of 0.47% of gross domestic product during the Whitlam years was slashed to 0.33% under the Hawke and Keating governments, and has at times been even lower under the Howard government. In 2005 John Howard committed Australia to double Australian aid to about $4 billion a year by 2010. On 18 December 2008, the William J. Operation[edit] Total Australian Official Development Assistance in 2005-06 was A$2,605 million, not all of it administered by AusAID. Projects[edit] Over the past 40 years: Food aid[edit]
