Volunteer Medical Teams

Taking into account the inequalities in access to health services, Yeryüzü Doktorları has been supporting people who cannot access healthcare facilities through voluntary health teams since 2000.

What is Happening?

Even though accessing primary healthcare is considered to be one of the most basic human rights to thrive throughout life, most of the facilities and personnel capacity within the health system of many countries across the globe are insufficient. Over 927 million people, making up to 12% of the world’s population live in Africa, where reaching primary healthcare is mostly considered as great privilege.

According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) World Health Statistics 2016 report, there is an average of only 2.4 physicians per 10,000 people in Africa, while in Europe there is an average of 32.2 physicians serving the same number of people. Liberia, Malawi, Niger and Sierra Leone stand at the bottom of the world’s list with barely one physician per 10,000 person (0.2 per 10,000), according to the 2016 WHO’s Atlas of African Health Statistics.

What do We do?

Yeryüzü Doktorları runs numerous projects and programs to provide free healthcare for those who don’t have access to local healthcare services. Short-term camps are organized in regions where practitioners and financial support are absent yet facilities exist.

These camps often work in partnership with local health authorities, professionals and partner organizations to ensure a more efficient and productive result. Yeryüzü Doktorları volunteer medical teams provide healthcare services in medical fields where further expertise is required. In addition, trainings are held for local health professionals where the volunteer medical teams share their knowledge and experience with them.

Until today more than 200 voluntary medical teams have been sent on missions, thousands of examinations and surgeries have been carried out.

What can you do?

With little donations, you can lead to great changes in the lives of people you don’t know at all. Because all the support to date have been made with the strength we gained from your goodness.
