Médecins du Monde is an independent association that works to make the right to health a reality for all people, especially those living in poverty, those experiencing gender inequality or social exclusion and those who fall victim to a humanitarian crisis.
We are an international solidarity organization, committed to the vulnerable, the excluded, and victims of natural disasters, famine, diseases or armed conflicts. We believe that victims’ right to care must prevail over any other consideration. We do not only operate in countries in the South. We also work with excluded groups in welfare societies, and especially individuals with difficulties in accessing the public health system. Our intention, rather than to create parallel healthcare systems, is to ensure all people have adequate health conditions, as is their right.
A world where barriers to health have been overcome, a world where health is acknowledged as a fundamental right.
Médecins du Monde is an independent international voluntary movement working at home and abroad. Through innovative medical programmes and evidenced-based advocacy we empower excluded people and communities to claim their right to health while fighting for universal access to healthcare.
Its mission consists of three main objectives:
· Health treatment
· Testimonies and advocacy
· Supporting communities who want to change
· Social Justice
