For more than 40 years, Médecins du Monde, a campaigning medical organisation committed to international solidarity, has been caring for the most vulnerable populations at home and abroad. It has continued to highlight obstacles that exist in accessing health care and has secured sustainable improvements in health-for-all policies.
Those working for this independent organisation do not solely dispense care and treatment but condemn violations of human dignity and rights and fight to improve matters for populations living in precarious situations.
MdM currently works in 30 countries across all continents where it focuses on 5 priority areas: emergency and crisis, sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction, migrants and displaced populations (health rights), health and environment.
MdM strategy in Palestine is based on 2 of MdM France’s thematic pillars worldwide: Conflict and Emergencies and Sexual & Reproductive Health (SRH) with MHPSS as a crosscutting theme to all activities and with a transversal advocacy component.
MdM Palestine has one office in Gaza, one in the West Bank (Nablus), one in East Jerusalem, and a coordination/operation office in Bir Zeit-Ramallah.
