Providing maternal care and support in Nepal. In the Sindhupalchok district  to help Nepalese women in rural villages overcome challenges to accessing healthcare and information about pregnancy.

"In order to get to the health centre people have to travel for two hours by bus or six hours on foot," says Ang Lahnu Sherpa, a midwife in the village of Thokarpa. "Between 20 and 30 people come to the health centre every day.  We try to convince women to come and give birth at the centre rather than at home."

Present for several months Syrian border in Jordan and Lebanon, Doctors of the World has opened a center for primary health care in the camp Zaatari, near the Syrian border. There are more than 5,000 Syrians at the camp. Doctors of the World teams consist of two doctors, four nurses and a psychologist referral who provide medical care for refugees of which 75% are women and children. Doctors of the World also refer victims of violence to a network of doctors (psychiatrists, psychologists) and social workers in Jordan. #Jordan #Syria #DoctorsoftheWorld

As violence against civilians escalates, Doctors of the World - Médecins du monde (MdM) continues to provide aid in the Middle East: medical and psycho-social care for refugees and support for medical personnel treating wounded Syrians who have fled to neighboring countries (Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, etc.). Unable to obtain the necessary authorisations to operate in Syria, Doctors of the World is providing organisations of Syrian doctors with medical supplies. #Syria #refugees #health #doctorsoftheworld

A French military group arrived early August in Jordan to medically assist Syrian refugees in the camp of Zaatari, where Doctors of the World opened a health center. Worried by their presence Doctors of the World reports on the risk of confusion between the roles of military and humanitarian aid.#Syria #Jordan #Health #miltary

In Syria, the resurgence of violence is affecting the population and targeting wounded people, medical staff and health structures. We, Doctors of the World - Médecins du monde (MdM), are calling for all parties to respect the rules of international law in times of war, including respecting medical care providers and their ethical obligation to provide care.
In light of this terrible reality, and even while access to victims is still limited, it is our duty to forcefully speak out against this situation and to hold the belligerents to account. #Syria #war #justice

As new fighting has put the North Kivu province of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) at centre stage, there is little discussion of the health crisis faced by people living with HIV/AIDS in this country. The situation of the epidemic however is catastrophic. It is estimated that there are nearly one million people affected by the disease, including 430,000 in urgent need of treatment and care. Of these, only 53,000 actually receive any. In other words, that is a needs coverage rate of barely 13%, whereas the average rate for all African countries is 50%. The DRC alone accounts for more than half of all these patients, who are living in a country with poor anti-retroviral coverage. #HIV/AIDS #DRC #Congo

Doctors of the World UK, delivering vital healthcare – before, during and after a crisis.
Introduction
We help vulnerable people across the world, from young mothers and their babies in the slums of India to injured civilians in Libya, and victims of natural disasters like the earthquake in Haiti.

Here in the UK we run Project:London where we help some of the community's most vulnerable, including victims of torture and people fleeing violence, pregnant mothers unable to access antenatal care, and babies in need of basic immunisations. 

We advocate tirelessly to make sure that everyone gets the healthcare they need. Because health is a human right.
