MMI Secretariat

Medicus Mundi International (MMI) supports the Network members' efforts to achieve the shared vision of Health for All through a set of specific contributions (see Network Policy, 2014):

  • Enhancing communication and cooperation among members and providing a platform for the development of joint activities, thematic working groups and consortia;
  • Fostering an evidence based approach in the members’ institutional cultures and programs and promoting collaboration between the Network members and research institutions
  • Pproviding a platform for joint advocacy at a global level, with a focus on the World Health Organization and in close cooperation with other networks and campaigns promoting Health for All; 
  • Fostering the visibility of the Network members and their activities by publishing their news, reports, statements, events and other contributions.

The activities of the small Medicus Mundi International Network Secretariat (Executive Secretary: Thomas Schwarz) have evolved with the demands of the member organisations. Feel free to get in touch with us to learn more!
