Summary Doctors of the World UK runs a clinic and advocacy programmes in London that provide medical care, information and practical support to excluded people such as destitute migrants, sex workers and people with no fixed address. Doctors of the World - Médecins du Monde is an international human rights organization providing emergency and long-term medical care to vulnerable people. When the crisis is over and the cameras leave, we stay for as long as it takes to build better medical infrastructures. We seek out and defend the inconveniently unhealthy and target underlying medical issues.
