MSF provides free healthcare to excluded and marginalised groups in south Tehran, including drug users, sex workers, street children and the ghorbat ethnic minority. ​​​

In Darvazeh Ghar district, MSF runs a clinic offering a comprehensive package of medical services designed for high-risk patients who suffer from stigma and/or need more help to follow their treatment. 

Services include counselling and support from peer workers, psychosocial aid, medical and mental health consultations, ante- and postnatal care, family planning and treatment for sexually transmitted infections.  Patients can also be tested for communicable diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis and hepatitis C. 

The team also operates a referral system, and runs mobile clinics in partnership with Society for Recovery Support, a local organisation which specialises in support for addicts and provides psychosocial assistance, harm reduction and shelter. ​​
