Where We Work

A rapid field assessments of Coxs Bazaar, Bangladesh was carried out between the 12-­16th November, 2017 by a senior member of the Doctors Worldwide UK trusteeship and from 3-­8th December by a team of medical specialists to assess the capacity of local NGO’s in meeting health requirements for Rohingya Refugees.  

DWW has been in Pakistan since 2004. Through our emergency response we provided significant medical aid and expertise during the Kashmir Earthquake and the devastating floods of 2010 and 2011, helping thousands of people. We then progressed into long term and sustainable health development and now work in rural parts of Sind Province focusing on Maternal and Child Health.

We've worked in Kenya since 2009. We currently support DWW Kenya to deliver primary healthcare, maternal and child health services in the Coast area and in Western Kenya. Other projects include our Orphans, Vulnerable & Disabled Children's project - HappyKIDS.

In 2015, we started work in Tanzania with an aim of replicating our Primary healthcare expertise. We are working with a local medical facility located outside Dar Es Salaam, to initially deliver Eyehealth services to the poor and then progress to wider maternal and child health services.

In 2016, we started work with a local Malawian Health NGO called Madina Social Services. The aim was to help them improve the quality of their primary healthcare services. They are located in Blantyre in Southern Malawi and have a number of rural and urban medical clinics.

DWW worked in the DR Congo between 2004 & April 2014 when we left. We developed a health care system focused on Maternal Health in Katanga Province, SE Congo. It was a challenging environment; Katanga is 497,000 sq km in size and 16x as large as Belgium. We built a new hospital in Lubumbashi which completed in 2014 and also supported the running of 5 rural maternal and medical centers.
