Doctors of the World serves more than 1.6 million people every year, through 400 programs in over 80 countries around the world. We are there in conflict zones, refugee camps and rural communities, providing care, creating infrastructure and advocating for the world’s most vulnerable people.
Whether that means defying local authorities to create a life-saving needle exchange program for drug users in France, fighting for women’s reproductive rights in Nepal or providing psychological and medical care for Syrian refugees in Turkey, we fight every day to save the lives of people living on the margins.
We go to the war zone and we stay, even after the cameras are gone and the news cycle has moved on. We go into communities that never even make it on to the news and fight for people who are otherwise invisible.
If those with the means and those in power ignore those suffering, struggling or starving, our world collapses.
