In many countries where MSF and other NGOs work, reliable information on the labour market and cost of living is not available. This makes it difficult to know what salary levels and benefits are appropriate for locally recruited staff.


Through a dedicated team, MSF collects labour market and cost of living / workers’ expenditure information in all countries where the organisation operates. Professional benchmarkers interview personnel and bring together information on salaries and living wages from a broad range of organisations working in the same country. MSF conducts such benchmarks every three to five years in all countries, or more frequently if required.
