Médicos del Mundo is an independent association that works to realize the right to health for all people, especially those who live in poverty, gender inequality and social exclusion or are victims of human crisis.
Curar is the first mission of Médicos del Mundo and the volunteers and professionals who make up our association. That is why those of us who are part of this organization are committed to helping all vulnerable populations, excluded or victims of natural disasters, famine, disease, armed conflict or political violence. For Doctors of the World the right of the victims to be attended must prevail over any other consideration.
Not only do we operate in the countries of the South, but we also work with the excluded groups of the welfare society, especially those with problems of access to the public health system. We do not intend to create parallel assistance systems, but to ensure that all people enjoy adequate health conditions.
