Where we work

We actively support women and girls in war zones and crisis areas who are affected or threatened by sexualised violence. For this, we work together with local women’s rights organisations and help them to establish structures and networks in which women can support each other.

medica mondiale works with partner organisations in 14 countries on 3 continents.
