Our Projects Overseas

Doctors of the World currently has 185 projects running in 60 countries worldwide.

From providing emergency medical relief to victims of the tsunami to improving the lives of women recovering from acid attacks in Palestine, we are continuously evaluating the health needs of vulnerable people worldwide and providing them with the medical attention and psychological support they need.

This is achieved through three types of healthcare projects and a commitment to sharing our skills and training local people. These can be defined as: * Emergency response projects - Burma * Post-emergency crisis: rehabilitation and reconstruction projects - Ivory Coast * Long-term, sustainable healthcare development projects involving training local healthcare staff - Guatemala

Our objective of achieving universal access to healthcare means that we give a voice to vulnerable people. We report on their stories which may not otherwise be heard, when we witness obstacles to healthcare, or abuses of human rights.

In addition, three themes have been identified upon which our overseas projects are broadly based: * Childhood * Globalisation and its effects on health, including migration issues * Infectious diseases: working towards worldwide prevention
