Eudamonia Medical Services

Eudamonia Medical Services

Eudaimonia Medical Services is a Greek non-profit organization based in Lesvos. Recognizing that medical care is made up of several components, the organization focuses on providing the best possible experience for patients needing diagnostic care (such as MRIs, CTs, or private consultations not available through the public health system). Moreover, the team provides medical translation services, which serve not only the patient's linguistic understanding, but also allow patients to feel comfortable and to bridge any cultural gaps. Many of the supported patients went on to receive medical diagnoses that had an impact on their asylum case, requiring them to travel to access the treatment they needed.
