MDC – Medicine – Dialogue – Communion
In 2003, following the development in recent years of a number of initiatives in the most varied environments of the health field, both in highly evolved and less developed health systems, a group of doctors and other professionals in the field of biomedical science, from various educational and cultural backgrounds, felt the need to establish an association. Thus MCD, Medicine Dialogue Communion, an interdisciplinary and intercultural association was born.
Taking inspiration from the principles of the spirituality of unity that animates the Focolare Movement, the association wishes to contribute towards the elaboration of a new medical anthropology. MDC seeks to redefine the meaning of the life and dignity of all individuals, the value of the human being, and the health–illness relationship on a personal and social dimension.
