Environmental Health Risks in the Philippines
In response to the deadly earthquakes, our team set up clinics near the villages of Golche and Sunkhani in the Sindhupalchok district – a remote region that was one of the hardest hit in the quakes.
In the immediate aftermath, Doctors of the World medical teams evaluated 2,000 people and provided basic healthcare to thousands in the area.
In addition to our emergency response work, Doctors of the World has been on the ground in Nepal since 2007, with a focus on increasing access to sexual and reproductive healthcare for Nepali women.
Our teams aim to ensure quality health services are available at a community level and to reduce factors contributing to maternal and neonatal mortality. We also provide educational workshops on the prevention and management of pregnancy, childbirth and post-natal care.
