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 has been working in Pakistan since 1996. The organization currently implements 3 main projects.

Punjab project:

MdM has been involved in Punjab for more than 20 years, opening its mission in Pakistan with a mother and child health programme in South Punjab in 1996.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Project:

A long-term post emergency program focusing on access to health care for the populations affected by the conflict in KP and/or natural disasters since 2009.

Currently MdM operates in 4 districts supporting 24/7 basic delivery services.
