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 worked in Nepal since 1995. Since 2020, MdM implements a program in Nepalgunj and Banke district (south-west of Nepal, Indian border), towards people involved in formal and informal waste management and towards farmers. The overall objective is to mitigate health risks related with waste management and pesticide use, to increase their access to decent and safe work, to promote access to occupational health & safety, develop new initiatives in waste management and organic farming.
MdM is also planning to implement the same strategy, in 2022, towards farmers, in consortium with a complementary French INGO and local NGO, in Kavre, Ramechhap and Sindhupalchok districts.
