About Us

Our mission

The mission of Med'EqualiTeam is to provide free healthcare for asylum seekers and refugees, who face financial, social, and logistical obstacles in their access to healthcare.

Our aims

Med’EqualiTeam aims to fill the gap in access to primary healthcare for asylum seekers on Samos. We provide some relief for local public services, whilst also acting as a trusted advocate for any asylum seeker who urgently requires access to secondary care.

The clinic serves as a primary health care facility, with seven consultations rooms where patients can see doctors and get free treatment as needed. As well as common GP complaints (including treatment for chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension), we treat problems relating to hygiene in the camp such as rat bites, severely infected wounds and diarrhoea. We see many patients with mental health issues. Due to lack of access to quality healthcare in the past, we also see patients who are at an advanced stage of a disease.We also offer physiotherapy and daily wound dressings, as well as measuring eyesight and offering glasses.

Urgent cases surpassing our capacity will be transferred to hospital and in other serious cases we refer directly to other actors, such as EODY (who run the small camp clinic), the hospital, UNHCR and MSF.

With our team we currently see between a 100 to 200 patients a day, from all nationalities and ages. Approximately 35% of the patients are Afghans (speaking Farsi), 35% are from Africa (mostly speaking French and English) and 30% are from Arabic speaking countries. A third of our patient population are children.

Outside of the clinic we offer weekly health workshops on topics such as reproductive health, mental health, children’s diseases.
