Médecins du Monde (MdM) is an international humanitarian organisation whose mission is to provide medical care for the most vulnerable populations, the world over, including France. It seeks to stimulate voluntary commitment from doctors, other health care providers, and from those whose expertise in other fields is needed for its activities, to enlist all competent support required for the achievement of its projects, and to seek at all times to encourage close working relationships with populations in its care.

For more than 40 years, Médecins du Monde (MdM), a campaigning medical organization 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 organization 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 more than 44 countries across all continents where it focuses on 5 priority areas: caring for the health of migrants and displaced persons, promoting sexual and reproductive health, combating HIV, and reducing the harm and risks associated with drug use, crises and conflicts and environmental health.

MdM has worked in Nepal since 1995: firstly, on Tuberculosis and HIV in western province, then on Sexual and Reproductive Health in Sindhupalchok District. Following the 2015 earthquakes, MdM implemented an emergency response program and then, a post-earthquake early recovery project in the same district.

Since 2018, MdM is working on Environmental Health. The 2018-2019 “Healthy Waste Workers in Kathmandu Valley” program aimed to improve health status of informal waste workers (IWWs) in the Valley, mitigating their occupational risks and environmental exposure, improving access to information, and increasing access to health services in Teku, Shantinagar and Sisdole landfill sites. In continuation, the 3-years program started in 2020, aims to improve health, wellbeing, and livelihood of IWWs in Kathmandu Valley and Sisdole landfill. Considering many occupational activities have impact, MdM is implementing a program environmental and occupational health in Nepalgunj Sub-metropolitan City, Duduwa and Khajura Rural Municipalities, Banke since 2020, towards 2 group of workers exposed to chemicals, physical and infectious toxic factors: waste workers and farmers.

Nepal is currently facing several interrelated societal and environmental challenges that must be addressed together. The country has begun to recover from the 2015 earthquakes, but the COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on the country's economy. Agriculture is the most important economic sector, contributing nearly 27.6% of the national GDP (source: Economic Survey FY 2019-2020), thus 60.4% of Nepali working people depend on agriculture for their livelihood. In addition, the transportation of produce remains a major challenge in this mountainous country where many areas are difficult to access. The process of transitioning to commercial agriculture has begun, resulting in the massive use of chemical inputs to increase production and disastrous consequences for the environment and the health of farmers. This project will continue the development of economic recovery activities, with a focus on organic agriculture and farmers' health, in a target area of 6 rural municipalities. Around these themes, the agricultural cooperatives of the partner will develop several activities such as the creation of model farms, the dissemination of resilient farming methods adapted to climate change via leading farmers, the creation of nurseries to produce locally adapted seeds, training in methods of protection against chemical inputs and awareness of the risks associated with their use etc.
