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 more than 40 countries across all continents where it focuses on 5 priority areas: emergency and crisis, sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction, migrants and displaced populations (health rights), health and environment.
MdM has been operating in Myanmar since 1994. Its main programme delivers comprehensive harm reduction and HIV/AIDS prevention and care, focusing on the high-risk groups of drug users (Kachin State), female sex workers and men having sex with men (Yangon area).
The project is implemented with a comprehensive approach, including a wide range of activities for prevention (drop-in centres, outreach activities including harm reduction, methadone substitution therapy) and care (Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) diagnosis and treatment, HIV diagnosis and treatment, including antiretroviral (ARV)).
In Kachin, the project is implemented in 3 main sites (Myitkyina, Moegaung, Hopin). Activities include health education in outreach, needles and syringe exchange programme, methadone substitution programme, counselling and HIV testing and medical care for people living with HIV (STI, opportunistic infections, tuberculosis and ARV).
In Yangon, the project is implemented in one main site, with broad outreach activities. Current and future strategy focuses on supporting local civil society and health system in scaling up and provision of health services.
