For more than 40 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 30 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 implementing an emergency program in Borno State since 2016, in response to the humanitarian crisis in north-eastern Nigeria, focusing on improving access to primary health care, treatments of under-nutrition and for gender-based violence survivors, and providing sexual and reproduction health and mental health and psychological support services to beneficiaries. The coordination office is in Maiduguri and there are 2 field offices in both Maiduguri City and Damboa and 1 liaison office in Abuja. The interventions cater for for IDPs and host populations who seek services in fixed PHC clinics directly run by MdM across 3 different project sites (Garba Buzu, Kawarmaila and El Meskin). Also, MdM is supporting 2 state-run MoH health posts in 2 other locations of the State.
