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 35 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 France began implementing activities in Syria in 2012, developing progressively cross border operations. MdM Turkey was created in 2018 and has since then been particularly involved in the management of the Syrian crisis.

MdM network, through different chapters, is now present in different areas in Syria :

  • Delivering direct services with Syrian teams through health facilities and mobile units
  • Supporting local partners financially and technically
  • Supporting local health authorities, when existing, by providing medicines

MdM Turkey (DDD) is operational in Turkey and is funded by MdM France, to support Syrian refugees in Turkey. They also implement operations in Afrin and Idlib districts, in North West Syria.

MdM Spain is operational in North East Syria and is funded by MdM France. They also receive the support of MdM France team based in Iraq.

MdM France is supporting local actors in South Syria in the areas controlled by the government.

MdM France also plays a key role in supporting implementation partners in the follow-up of funding contracts and, therefore, works closely with MdM Turkey.


Under the supervision of the head of network unit for MdM France, you are the focal point concerning contracts, donors-related issues, proposals and reports for projects handled by MdM France and implemented by DDD, MdM Spain and MdM France in Syria and Turkey.
