Médecins du Monde UK was established in January 1998. As well as sending volunteers overseas to provide medical care to vulnerable people who are effected by natural disasters, conflict and extreme poverty, our offices run healthcare projects in nine Europeans capital cities for marginalised populations who cannot access mainstream healthcare services. Our work falls into three categories, emergency, post-emergency and long term development. Lobbying and raising awareness about human right issues concerning obstacles to healthcare is also part of our work. Project: London, our UK project, is a healthcare initiative reaching out to vulnerable people in the UK who cannot access mainstream healthcare services.
