    MDM Strategy

    • In Nigeria, Medecins du Monde provides emergency medical assistance to host and displaced populations within the Northeast region of the country.

As part of this intervention, MdM will train the medical team on ‘’Advance Cardiovascular Life Support’’ to scale up the quality of the emergency care provided at field level.


    • Injuries and life-threatening incidents in the clinics (or at home) are always unexpected. The failure to take prompt action may escalate an emergency situation and lead to the mortality and morbidity of the victim. However, early intervention may be effective in preventing further deterioration of the patient’s condition, and may even reverse the life-threatening condition.
