Médecins du Monde - Tunisia

The United Nations Population Fund is collaborating for the first time with one of the leading organizations in the provision of health and social services to vulnerable populations in Tunisia : Médecins du Monde and this, as part of the response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Médecins du Monde - Tunisia belongs to the network of the international non- governmental organization Médecins du Monde, which fights for the rights of vulnerable and excluded populations.

Since 2012, Médecins du Monde has settled in Tunisia and launched its project for improving maternal health and upgrading the health system and its governance in two pilot regions : Gafsa and Sidi Bouzid. Through this intervention, a participatory dynamic was put in place bringing together around thirty associations and key players in the health sector.

Médecins du Monde broadened its spectrum of intervention in 2015 by setting up a service unit for migrants through an integrated medico-psycho-social approach: direct assistance to migrants, capacity building of institutions, advocacy and awareness.

Médecins du Monde has broadened its scope of intervention by setting up regional teams in Sfax, Tunis, Médenine Jendouba and Sidi Bouzid and central coordination in Tunis.

In 2020, UNFPA Tunisia established a partnership with Médecins du Monde aimed at reducing vulnerabilities aggravated by confinement and the socioeconomic situation following the declaration of the COVID19 pandemic.

Through this partnership, 397 hygiene kits were distributed in Tunis, Sfax and Médenine, 805 social consultations, 65 telemedicine consultations, 138 psychological consultations were delivered and 219 marauds were carried out in Tunis, Sfax and Medenine.
