The International Network of Médecins du Monde consists of 17 independent civil society associations working on domestic and international projects. Providing care, testimony and support for social change, MdM fights for the universal right to health and the defence of human rights.
With more than 400 innovative programs and initiatives in over 70 countries, we enable vulnerable people and communities to access quality health services and fight for universal access to healthcare.
The MdM International Network shares a common vision: a world where there are no longer any barriers to health and where health is recognised as a fundamental human right.
Not only to provide medical assistance, but also to document human rights violations and publicly report abuses – this is the dual principle by which we support people in realising their right to access to medical care.
As a global movement of volunteers and workers, we provide medical services and witness. Powered by our diversity, we support vulnerable people in social change.
We believe that the people we help can be agents of change on the road to their health. With our partners, we seek to support them to take action and exercise their rights.
We believe that social justice is the means to equal access to healthcare, respect for fundamental rights and solidarity.
We are independent of all political, religious and economic authorities and interests.
We seek balance between our national and international activities, between emergency and long-term projects, between medical and shared knowledge, and between public funding and private donations.
