Doctors of the world (MdM) aim to improve the health conditions of the homeless, the marginalized and others excluded from health care services, here and abroad. In the last year, MdM led a needs assessment in Victoria to identify the gaps in access to health care services for marginalized people.
The Mobile Clinic of MdM is a mean of reaching out the homeless population, offer them care in the private, safe and respectful setting on the street, parks and other places on the margins of the city.
The objective remains to combine the efforts of MdM with those of community workers addressing homelessness enable individuals who need continuing medical and social care to reintegrate into the public health care system.
Citizen involvement is at the heart of Médecins du Monde’s organizational model. Thus, the commitment of volunteers has always been a foundation of the work of this organization. In anticipation of the launch of the Victoria Mobile Health Clinic this upcoming April, MdM organizes an information session for interested and potential volunteers.
