İlan Detayları


Having started up its activities in 2000 as an international aid organization focused on health, Doctors Worldwide Turkey - Yeryüzü Doktorları Derneği (YYD) have carried out hundreds of projects so far with the support of more than 30 thousand volunteers in more than 50 countries such as Afghanistan, Syria, Somali, Palestine, Uganda and Yemen. YYD mainly aims to reach those regions which do not have access to local healthcare services and also those regions affected by natural disasters. It has set out initially by organizing short-term health camps for the purpose of conducting examinations and surgeries, providing medicine and equipment support and these camps have turned into long-term and sustainable projects over time. YYD continues conducting preventive health programs, psychosocial support, physical capacity building and health education projects in both emergency situations and in less developed countries.

Within Turkey and in partnership with Ministry of Health, YYD provides comprehensive mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS), Protection, and social integration services for refugees and vulnerable host communities. YYD has been conducting several funded projects by World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (BPRM), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and International Medical Corps (IMC).
