Context of the mission:
Médecins du Monde (MdM) is an international humanitarian organisation whose mission is to provide medical care for the most vulnerable populations, the world over. It seeks to stimulate voluntary commitment from doctors, other health care providers, and from those whose expertise in other fields is needed for its activities, to enlist all competent support required for the achievement of its projects, and to seek at all times to encourage close working relationships with populations in its care.
The crossing of the Mediterranean Sea by migrants is a phenomenon that has existed for over 20 years. It has increased a lot since the Arab Spring; where over 50 000 people have “landed” on the island of Lampedusa. Since then, the escalation of conflicts, in particular in the Middle East and the hardening of home and protection policies in European countries exacerbate this phenomenon.
MdM has open a mission in Italy end of 2015 implementing projects based on health and psycho social activities both for UASCs and adult asylum seekers. From June 2017, MdM started a collaboration with UNICEF aiming to increase opportunities for UASCs to have access to social inclusion as well to strengthened the capacity of the services provide operating in the reception centers.
