About Doctors of the World USA

Doctors of the World (DotW), a non-profit, 501c3 organization, is the US chapter of the Médecins du Monde (MdM) International Network, a global health and humanitarian organization with a focus on human rights that provides emergency and long-term medical care to vulnerable populations while fighting for equal access to healthcare worldwide. DotW is a small but growing organization with increasing influence in the MdM International Network, and is in the process of launching its own direct service and advocacy programs in the US. We work at the intersection of social and racial justice, human rights, health equity and policy advocacy.

Doctors of the World values healthcare as a fundamental right and is committed to improving access to quality medical services for populations affected by systemic inequities including poverty, lack of access to healthcare, housing and education, conflict, or natural disasters. DotW provides services under all circumstances, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, age or political beliefs. DotW bears witness to health inequity worldwide. Globally, our network has deep expertise in five main program pillars: sexual and reproductive health and rights; migrants and refugees; mental health; harm reduction; and disaster response.
