Our programs in Americas

Social exclusion, violence, political instability and poverty in Latin and Central America are driving people out of their countries. Médecins du Monde is trying to ensure that these people have access to care and protection.

Our association is present for migrant women sex workers in Mexico to spread health education messages.

In Colombia, we provide mobile health services (sexual and reproductive health, waste management and psychological support) in isolated rural areas among the most affected by armed conflicts.

In this region of the world, our association is also present in Haiti, where it continues to support cholera treatment centers, assists women who are victims of unwanted pregnancies and supports maternal and child health.
