Designation of an external provider for provision of Staff Care services for Médecins du Monde ASBL – Dokters van de Wereld VZW (MdM-BE)’s employees in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo Canton.
Founded in 1997, Médecins du Monde ASBL – Dokters van de Wereld VZW (MdM-BE) is an International medical Non-Governmental Organization (INGO) based in Brussels, Belgium that is part of the international MdM international network. MdM-BE’s vision is to ensure universal healthcare coverage globally, and that all persons have access to care without barriers (financial, cultural, geographical, etc.). MdM-BE’s intervention is based on the three pillars of the organization, which are: 1) Care (give people real access to healthcare without barriers),
- Testifying (gain facts about healthcare realities and disseminate them), 3) Sustainable change. The majority of MdM’s programs are mobile, meaning that MdM’s teams go where the most vulnerable people live (outreach), i.e. doing street work, visiting squats or camps and going to isolated villages.
MdM-BE’s work is articulated around five main thematic priorities: Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, Migration Health and Rights, Harm Reduction, One Health and Conflicts and Crises. Three transversal topics complement them: Sexual and Gender-Based Violence, Mental Health, and Community Empowerment. Most MdM-BE’s projects are implemented directly, but local partnerships are an essential part of the organisation’s operational response strategy.
MdM-BE is currently active in Belgium and seven other countries: Croatia, Bosnia-and- Hercegovina, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tunisia, Niger, Mali and Morocco. Present in southesteastern Europe since 2016, MdM-BE proved its expertise in providing medical and mental health care to displaced persons as well as its capacity to share this knowledge to other partners/stakeholders (including from public sector).
