Doctors of the World UK

Doctors of the World UK is part of the global Médecins du Monde network, which delivers over 400 projects in 80 countries through 3,000 volunteers.

 

Our vision is of a world where barriers to health have been overcome, where health is acknowledged as a fundamental right. Through innovative medical programmes and evidence-based advocacy, we empower excluded people and communities to claim their right to health while fighting for universal access to healthcare

 

We won’t rest until everyone, everywhere gets the healthcare they need. 

 

Our Values are: Activism; Empowerment; Social Justice; Independence; and Balance.

 

We work with and for:

  • people in crisis, providing life-saving humanitarian healthcare in times of war and after natural disasters
  • vulnerable migrants, including by advocating for the right to health across Europe
  • people at risk of harm, like homeless, drug users and sex workers
  • women and girls’ right to sexual and reproductive health

 

In the UK we deliver direct services through our east London clinic, mobile clinic and outreach programme across London and campaign and advocate for change in policy and practice nationally.
