MISSION: Doctors of the World (Médecins du Monde) is an independent international voluntary movement working at home and abroad.

Through innovative medical programs and evidence-based advocacy, we empower excluded people and communities to claim their right to health while fighting for universal access to health care.

Médicos del Mundo Spain works towards ensuring the universality of access to Health care for all is real and effective, by promoting social change and providing integrated, public and universal health care to all.

Médecins du Monde France was born in 1980 and in 1990, an office of Médicos del Mundo was opened in Spain. The International Network is comprised of 15 chapters across 15 different countries.

THE 6 PARTNERS

Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, and United Kingdom

The first Consortium comprised of European MdM delegations has been developing the first phase of the EU Aid Volunteers Initiative: the Technical Assistance project. The main goal of this project is to prepare the delegations members of the Consortium to become certified sending organisations. These six European MdM delegations all have a different structure and working experience but share common Vision, Mission and Values. Moreover, this project will create HR, Volunteering and Security products which will be common for the entire International Network.
