Child protection guidelines

Important instruments of the Child Protection Policy are the Child Protection Handbook (available in English and Spanish), the Code of Conduct – (from p. 26 in the Child Protection Handbook), the Visitor Planning Information (English and Spanish), the risk assessment guidelines, the guidelines for evaluating medical and partner projects, and the monitoring and evaluation instructions (English and Spanish) for ensuring that the Child Protection Policy is really applied. These materials are all available under ‘Downloads’.

The Steering Committee, the Executive Board, and doctors and staff travelling to the projects are all obliged to submit the signed Code of Conduct and a long-form Certificate of Good Conduct before departing.

There is a Child Protection Officer working at the head office and a Child Protection Representative working in each project (there is only one project where one still has to be appointed).

Doctors travelling to work in projects are sent the Child Protection Handbook by email. The local staff receive training on the subject and have to sign the Code of Conduct. Continuous monitoring is performed to ensure the Child Protection Policy is applied.

Contact is maintained with local child-protection institutions so that any children and young people can be looked after if it is discovered during medical consultations or in connection with the projects that they are victims of child abuse. The German Doctors set up the Malisa Home in Cagayan de Oro on the Philippines where victims of abuse and prostitution are taken in and cared for

Partner projects cooperating with the German Doctors – i.e. projects in which no German personnel is involved, but which receive our advice and financial support – are encouraged to introduce a child protection policy if they do not already have one.

Do you have any questions? Our child protection officer Ulrike Fischer is at your disposal. Please describe your request by e-mail or contact us by phone +49 (0) 228/387 597-0.

German Doctors help worldwide

We believe in the right of every human being to get medical care no matter their origin. Therefore our volunteer German Doctors offer medical treatments in developing countries for the poorest of the poor. Whether people infected with HIV, undernourished children deficiency syndromes or people with chronic diseases, we help everyone who needs help.

Our doctors work during their annual leave or retirement for a period of six weeks and waive any compensation. More than 7000 missions with more than 3200 doctors were completed since 1983.
