MdM stands up for the integration of people living with disabilities and fights against discrimination.
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 40 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.
Violence in the northeast of Nigeria has caused massive displacement and at the same time restricted movement. It has disrupted food supplies, seriously hindered access to basic services, and limited agricultural activities.
Since February 2016, as humanitarian access is increasing, extreme food insecurity and malnutrition conditions have been revealed in Borno state.
As of 3rd August 2018, 1.82 million people are estimated to be displaced within / from Borno state, 1.63 million of them actually stayed within the state.
Most of them (more than 1.2m) are living in Maiduguri with the host community and others in formal and informal camps.
MdM has its coordination office in Maiduguri and a sub office in Damboa.
MdM has started since October 2016 an emergency response to this crisis, in the Borno state. Since 2018, MdM strategy in Borno state focuses on improving access to :
1. Free comprehensive primary healthcare services
2. Quality nutrition treatment for malnourished children
3. Mental health and psychosocial support
4. Lifesaving medical care, holistic referral services for survivors of gender based violence
In 2019, MdM runs directly 6 clinics (3 in Maiduguri, 3 in Damboa) and supports two Ministry of Health PHCC. MdM has also developed internal capacities to respond to new emergencies (mainly displacements of population as well as cholera outbreak).
