Advice in other formats

Doctors of the World are providing regular updates of translated guidance based on the NHS and the UK government’s advice and health information. The information is translated with the support of British Red Cross, Migrant Help, Clear Voice, and the Eastern European Resource Centre and is aimed at the migrant and asylum-seeking communities in the UK.


The community has really come together during the period of uncertainty we are facing during the COVID-19 outbreak. However, there are some people who are taking advantage of the situation and targeting the most vulnerable.

We don't want to discourage anyone from helping their neighbours or family members, and we don't want to breed distrust in those genuine members of the community trying to support others.

We simply ask that you remain vigilant.
