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.

In response to the latest crisis, MdM has been operational in Dohuk Governorate since November 2014, in Kirkuk Governorate since July 2015, and Ninewa Governorate since April 2016, supporting IDPs, returnees and host communities in getting access to primary health care services. MdM delivers today a comprehensive health response in areas of intervention, including Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) at primary care level.
In 2019, MdM is transitioning its response towards support to the national health system in areas of intervention across northern Iraq (Dohuk, Kirkuk and Ninewa Governorates). Mobile clinics and teams were transformed wherever possible into support of existing Primary Health Care (PHC) facilities, in close cooperation with local health authorities and the Ministry of Health.
