Medicos del Mundo

Адрес: Киев, Гончара, 44

MdM is an international humanitarian organisation whose mission is to provide medical care for the most vulnerable populations, the world over, including Spain. It seeks to stimulate voluntary commitment from doctors, other health care providers, and from those whose expertise in other fields is needed for its activities, to enlist all competent support required for the achievement of its projects, and to seek at all times to encourage close working relationships with populations in its care. MdM Germany implements the project activities directly in collaboration with MdM Spain as well as in close cooperation with the relevant authorities, public health facilities and communities in the target area.

 MdM has been operating in Ukraine since August 2015 and is currently implementing an emergency response and recovery program in the Eastern part of Ukraine (Luhansk and Donetsk oblast, government and non-government-controlled areas – GCAs and NGCAs). The program is implemented around three main components: direct delivery of services through multidisciplinary mobile units (including primary healthcare services (PHC), sexual and reproductive health (SRH), Mental Health and Psychosocial support services (MHPSS) and gender-based violence (GBV) response services); strengthening of local health system (with a specific focus on PHC, SRH, MHPSS and GBV) through capacity building of health and non-health staff, awareness raising and advocacy. In addition, MdM support the health system in response to COVID-19 pandemics in Eastern Ukraine. 

In November 2020, MdM launched a 3-year project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) having for an objective to increase resilience of communities and the local health system in Donetsk and Luhansk region (GCA) by improving availability and access to quality healthcare services to meet health needs of the conflict affected population with a special focus on vulnerable groups (people with disabilities, women, elderly people). The project will link MdM humanitarian assistance with transitional aid/development activities resulting in creation of a sustainable access to health and social services in communities affected by the conflict.
