Medicus Mundi Programme
We are working with Medicus Mundi to enhance the well-being of vulnerable textile sector workers in Tangiers region (Morocco)
Our cooperation with Medicus Mundi since 2015 to improve the social and health conditions of the textile workers in the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima region revolves around the following lines of action: promotion and improvement of health; promotion of sexual and reproductive health; improved access for workers to primary health services; training in risk prevention; first aid in the textile industry, and reinforcement and development of services for occupational health and safety. It also contributes to promoting the healthcare, social and labour rights of these workers. In 2021 it was signed a new agreement for the next three years, with a contribution from Inditex of 1.2 million euros.
Other players from Moroccan society are involved in this initiative, specifically, the Ministry of National Education and the Regional Department of Employment and Social Affairs, which has become the key partner.
The ultimate goal is to help the programme's beneficiaries exercise their rights and access healthcare; it is particularly focused on promoting the health of working women. Literacy programmes have also been rolled out for female workers.
