The humanitarian aid organization Arzte der Welt e. V. is the German division of the international network Medecins du Monde/Doctors of the World (MdM). The 17 national members of the network implement domestic and international healthcare projects, currently almost 340 projects in 75 countries around the world.

MdM provides emergency medical aid in disaster and crisis situations, supports access to health care and, if possible, assists with reconstruction measures. The network is also active in risk reduction and preparedness as well as long-term development co-operations in neglected regions around the world that receive little public attention. MdM ensures that its health services are provided equally to the most vulnerable citizens, refugees, internally displaced people, and host communities, regardless of their ethnic, social, religious, or political backgrounds. 

MdM has been operating in Eastern Ukraine since 2015, targeting the most vulnerable communities and people by improving access and quality of health care services for the population in Luhansk Oblast and Donetsk Oblast. Since February 2022 MdM has restructured its setting in Ukraine and adjusted the program accordingly. Currently, MdM Germany maintains a field office in Dnipro and Vinnytsia. The emergency response in Ukraine is currently implemented around two main components: direct delivery of services through multidisciplinary mobile units (including PHC, SRH, MHPSS, and support to GBV survivors) to IDPs and strengthening the local health system through the distribution of medicines and medical supplies to several hospitals and primary health care facilities.
