About us

Working in France and 64 countries worldwide, Doctors of the World - Médecins du Monde is an independent international movement of campaigning activists who provide care, bear witness and support social change. Through our 355 innovative medical programmes and evidence-based advocacy initiatives, we enable excluded individuals and their communities to access health and fight for universal access to healthcare.

Our campaigns

Our action is built on five priority areas: working with victims of crises and conflicts, promoting Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH), Harm Reduction (HR) and fighting HIV and, lastly, caring for migrant and displaced populations. 

Our history

Founded in 1980, the organisation has continued to increase its fields of intervention, adopt more complex ways of taking action and reaffirm its campaigning and independent stance. 

Our organisation

The guiding principles for the values and governance of our organisation are openness, transparency and collective working.
