As a medical humanitarian organization, MdM is committed to international solidarity, and 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.

Our action is built on the following six thematic areas: 

  • Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
  • Harm reduction, to lessen the negative consequences of drug use and risky sexual practices
  • Migration, Exile, Human Rights and Health
  • Health and Environment 
  • Humanitarian Space (Emergencies and crises)
  • Healthcare Systems

In addition, the three cross cutting approaches are as following:

  • Mental health and psychosocial support
  • Childhood vulnerability
  • Gender-based approach.
