medica mondiale partner organisations

In Irak medica mondiale is supporting women for example by training staff working in the state-run women's shelter. Pictured is legal advisor Jihan Abas Mohammed.

 

By cooperating with several organisations in a region, we can create synergies and effectively pool limited resources. That way, medica mondiale can react quickly to political changes and work in a targeted manner to bring about long-term changes. Our project promotion includes both financial cooperation and an exchange of expertise, plus joint political involvement. With like-minded partner organisations we strive to set up long-term cooperation on a larger scale.
