For more than 30 years, Médecins du Monde, a campaigning medical organisation 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 organisation 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 40 countries across all continents where it focuses on 4 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.
MdM France has been present in Bulgaria since 2004, with a Roma health mediator program in Sliven, having a specific focus on sexual and reproductive healthcare, which is recognized on local and national level. The project is funded by MdM France, the French Embassy in Bulgaria and the Sliven Municipality through the support of the Swiss-Bulgarian Cooperation.
MdM France is also currently implementing a migrants/refugees’ health project in the country. The aim of the project is to support the State Agency for Refugees regarding provision of healthcare, sensitization about hygiene practices and information of asylum seekers about the national health care system.
