Where we work

Work in Africa is the fulcrum of Doctors with Africa CUAMM’s activities which, since 1950, have been centred on upholding the fundamental human right to health and on making health services available to all, particularly the poor and the outcast.

The organization actively operates in 8 sub-Saharan African countries (Angola, Central African RepublicEthiopia, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda) with long-term healthcare projects, within a framework of social inclusion. CUAMM cooperates with Africa in hospitals, small health centres, villages and universities, where it works, builds and grows alongside the local people.

The actions involve the weakest population groups, particularly women and children, through treatment and prevention programmes, interventions to develop health facilities, activities devoted to the sick (HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria), and the training of doctors, nurses, midwives and other professional providers.
