...here are some good reasons:

Medicus Mundi International – Network Health for All (MMI) is a Network of organizations working in the field of international health cooperation and global health. The Network promotes access to health and health care as a fundamental human right, and we support efforts undertaken in this respect by its members. There are some good reasons to join the MMI Network:

  • The Network is a living community promoting sharing and collaboration.
    Through its working groups, meetings and communication channels, the Network offers great opportunities for learning, sharing and collaborating.
  • MMI is an NGO in official relations with the World Health Organization.
    MMI provides its members with access to WHO meetings and consultations, allowing them to engage in a range of issues including health systems strengthening, health workforce development, universal health coverage, social determinants of health and global health governance.
  • MMI is one of the most experienced networks in the field of global health.
    MMI was founded in 1963, and for more than 50 years it has been successfully linking organizations working in the fields of health cooperation, international health research and global health policies, governance and advocacy.
  • The Network empowers its members by providing particular services.
    MMI provides support for convening small and large-scale events, scouting and consultancy on funding opportunities, the set-up of consortia for joint projects, and much more.
  • MMI is a horizontal network respecting the values and autonomy of its members.
    The Network is owned and financed by its members and through jointly agreed programmes and remains independent from any other actor, public or private.

But all this cannot be achieved without the Network members: With their active engagement and their financial contributions, the members are key for both success and sustainability of the Network. So join in!
