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-France is operating in Syria as the leading Chapter of a consortium which includes MdM-Turkey (Dünya Doktorları Derneği) and MdM-Spain. While the three Chapters have been so far operating in Syria independently, since 2023 the recently formed consortium has embraced a Whole of Syria apporach.
The intervention focuses on supporting (through local partners and health authorities) or directly running primary healthcare centers. It includes a transversal approach on GBV and MHPSS.
More recently, the Consortium has been responding to the Emergency needs following the Feb 06th earthquake in Syria and Turkiye.
