French physician and politician, his positions included Minister of Health in 1992-1993, and of Foreign and European Affairs in 2007-2010. In 2010, The Jerusalem Post considered Bernard Kouchner the 15th most influential Jew in the world.

Kouchner worked as a physician for the Red Cross in Biafra in 1968 (during the Nigerian Civil War). His experience as a physician for the Red Cross led him to co-found Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) in 1971, and then, due to a conflict of opinion with MSF chairman Claude Malhuret, he established Doctors of the World ('Médecins du Monde') in 1980.

Kouchner has three children (Julien, Camille and Antoine) by his first wife, Évelyne Pisier, a professor of law, and one child, Alexandre, by his present wife Christine Ockrent, a journalist and author.
