Who we are
Medibüro Berlin was founded in 1996 as a self-organised non-government project. As an anti-racism initiative we have been pursuing the goal of improving healthcare provision for illegalised refugees and migrants in political and pragmatic ways. As the factual exclusion of illegalised persons from the regular healthcare system is based largely on political reasons we want to promote public awareness of this problem and call for political solutions by means of our public relations work. None of the people involved are paid for their work on the project.
What we do
We don’t offer medical treatment during our office hours but we direct patients to the specialists they require. We work together with doctors, psychologists, midwives and physiotherapists who have agreed to provide qualified treatment both anonymously and free-of-charge.
Costs for medicines, orthopaedic aids, glasses, laboratory examinations, X-rays etc. are financed by donations.
Monday 4:30 – 6:30 pm
