For more than 30 years, Médecins du Monde, a campaigning medical organisation committed to international solidarity, has been caring for the most vulnerable populations at home and abroad. It has continued to highlight obstacles that exist in accessing health care and has secured sustainable improvements in health-for-all policies. Those working for this independent organisation do not solely dispense care and treatment but condemn violations of human dignity and rights and fight to improve matters for populations living in precarious situations. MdM currently works in 44 countries across all continents where it focuses on 4 priority areas: caring for the health of migrants and displaced persons, promoting sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction associated with drug use, emergencies and crisis.


MdM strategy to support Syrian population is based on a regional approach around 3 main axes:

-Provide support to refugee populations: Primary, sexual and reproductive and post-operative health care for Syrian refugees in neighboring countries through MdM clinics and supporting local organizations in Lebanon and Jordan.

-Provide support to existing health facilities inside Syria: Emergency medical assistance to Syrian population inside Syria through networks of Syrian doctors or existing health facilities.

-Provide support to displaced populations in Iraq and Syria: Primary and sexual and reproductive health services for internal displaced populations through MdM clinics and mobile clinics in camps and urban settings.

To support the country missions in implementing and monitoring the activities, a regional representation office based in Amman has been set up in 2013. In June 2016, the decision has been taken to promote this office into a coordination office, in order to reinforce the support provided to the country missions as well as decentralize some support services in order to increase the quality of the services provided.
