Médecins du Monde France works in all 5 continents in different contexts (internal violence zones, conflict areas, medical deserts, natural disasters, etc.) and around 4 priority themes (health and migrants, sexual and reproductive health, AIDS and harm reduction, crisis and conflict).

Internationally, Médecins du Monde France has 63 programs in 45 countries. Nearly 4 million people around the world benefits from it. From emergency response, following crises and natural disasters that deprive populations of care, to development programs that meet the needs of the most vulnerable, our projects are based on solid foundations with local partners.


Emergency missions

Médecins du Monde provides rapid aid to the people on the ground following natural disasters, epidemics or conflicts.

Long-term missions

Once the emergency is handled, work continues to help reconstruct the country. Training of medical teams and hand in hand work with local partners guarantee long-term project monitoring.

5 Actions priorities

Care for migrants and displaced populations

Poverty, discrimination, violence, conflict, lead to population displacement and scarce access to healthcare.

Promotion of sexual and reproductive health

Every minute a woman, somewhere in the world, dies while giving birth or during her pregnancy following lack of appropriate care.

Fighting HIV and promoting risk reduction

Linked to lifestyle (street, prison) or environmental factors.

Preventing risk behaviour (drug users, sex workers) and treatment.

Crisis and conflicts

Natural disasters, answer to conflict induced emergencies.

Health and Environment 

To reduce the negative impact of environment on health.
