In the Middle East, several countries such as Iraq, Syria, and Yemen are in the grip of civil wars. Many people are forced to flee to neighboring regions to escape violence and insecurity. Faced with this dramatic situation, health needs are critical, infrastructure and health personnel are lacking and damages caused by the violence remain a major barrier to access to health care for the most vulnerable.
In the Middle East, Médecins du Monde has been providing medical support to these populations affected by armed conflicts for nearly 40 years. Accompanying these extremely vulnerable people in accessing health care and services (primary health, sexual and reproductive health and mental health) is a crucial challenge.
