Global charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said Thursday that it needed to make it easier for staff to report sexual misconduct after a media report said employees used prostitutes in Africa, in the latest sex scandal to rock the aid sector.Eight female ex-MSF employees said in a report by the BBC that MSF had a "toxic" culture, including "blatant and widespread" use of local sex workers by staff, with one man bragging it was easy to barter medication for sex in Liberia.A Thomson Reuters Foundation survey found that more than 120 staff from about 20 leading global charities were fired or lost their jobs last year over sexual misconduct.MSF, which employs 42,000 people, said 20 people were sacked in 2017 for sexual abuse or harassment, and 10 people the year before.
