    Goals / remit

Médecins du monde / Doctors of the World is an international aid organisation that provides medical care and gives a voice to vulnerable people all over the world: to victims of natural catastrophes, disease and armed conflicts, to refugees, minorities, children living on the streets and basically all people excluded from health care (including socially excluded groups such as homeless people, drug users, sex workers, undocumented migrants, asylum seekers, Roma communities, etc.)

Besides providing medical attention, we document and assess our patients’ situation to raise awareness on the condition of populations who have difficulties accessing healthcare. MdM uses as a basis for our advocacy work the data we systematically collect, which includes information on the social determinants of health and the patients’ state of health. Field work and data serve as the mainstay of the work we carry out with health professionals and institutions to obtain positive and long lasting changes in laws and practices.

Médecins du monde - Doctors of the World have been working in Europe since 1986. In total we run over 170 health programs in Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Médecins du monde - Doctors of the World head a Europe wide
health advocacy project aimed at the enforcement of a fundamental human right: the right to enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health.

Our goals include:
• to ensure that everyone living in the EU benefits from equal access to health care coverage, especially for the
most vulnerable segments of the population. This includes effective access to prevention, diagnosis and adequate healthcare;

• to obtain changes in European Union policies on measles, HIV, hepatitis and tuberculosis, all of which fall within the EU’s mandate, in order to ensure access to treatment; and

• to provide healthcare and protection from deportation for seriously ill undocumented migrants in the EU, who cannot access adequate healthcare in their country of origin, because sending them back to a country where they will not receive adequate care leads to the serious deterioration of their health and, in certain circumstances, death.
