With the benefit concerts, the World Doctors Orchestra wants to raise awareness of the need of a global social concept in the general public: Health care is a human right, and the precondition for human development.

The medical musicians are particularly concerned with the fight against epidemics like AIDS, tuberculosis, leprosy and malaria. “This is the 21st century, and according to “Doctors without Borders”, still 14 million people die from treatable infectious diseases. Today, the international community has the means at hand to effectively treat these diseases and to save millions of affected people from certain death.

The proceeds from each concert will go to two selected non-profit medical aid organizations.

The World Doctors Orchestra is a registered non-profit association. Contribution receipts will be issued for donations of at least 200 Euro or more to the account:
