Our programs in France
Doctors of the World is present in France and abroad. Our 15 delegations are more than 60 programs across France.
More than 8 million people in France are below the poverty line, that 14% of the working population. Faced with this observation, Doctors of the World is committed to populations in distress. Homeless, poorly housed, drug users, exiles ... Doctors of the World works in France against all forms of discrimination and exclusion to health.
We found that a person from North Africa organizes paid medical trips to France using a name close to "Médecins du Monde". People awaiting care are sometimes referred to our CASOs (reception centers) in France.
We remind you that the cares (and any other service or support offered by MdM) are FREE and that we have no connection with any organization offering paid medical trips to France. Médecins du Monde has informed the authorities.
