Médecins Sans Frontières Australia has launched an online news and documentary service.

Called MSF.TV, the service will report medical news across seven channels on matters such as protests against medical patents, giving care in conflict zones and the fall-out of Nigerian flooding.

The campaign is led by sustainability specialist Republic of Everyone, in collaboration with production company @radical.media, PR agency The Bravery and digital shop Heckler.

Production is guided by @radical.media, who has sent journalist crews to South Sudan and Papua New Guinea, as well as using Reuters and overnight Médecins Sans Frontières field reports to gather the news.
