For more than 30 years, Médecins du Monde, 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 44 countries across all continents where it focuses on four priority areas: caring for the health of migrants and displaced persons, promoting sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction associated with drug use, emergencies and crisis.

In Iraq, MdM is involved in emergency, post-emergency and development programs. The MdM project is to support health care including sexual and reproductive health access in Dohuk, Ninewa and Kirkuk governorates, mainly focusing on IDPs population and returnees. Psychosocial support activities have been introduced in all the projects.
