Chemists Without Borders
Chemists Without Borders is a non-governmental organization involved in international development work designed to solve humanitarian problems through chemistry and related activities. As a public benefit, non-profit organization, the primary goals of Chemists Without Borders include, but are not limited to: 1) providing affordable medicines and vaccines to those who need them most, 2) providing clean water through water purification technologies, 3) supporting sustainable energy technologies, 4) encouraging open access to scholarly chemistry research articles throughout the world, and 5) advocating a better understanding of chemistry through education.
Chemists Without Borders was founded in 2004 by Bego Gerber and Steve Chambreau as a result of a letter that Gerber sent to the editor of Chemical and Engineering News in September 2004.
