Human Resources Coordinator (M/F) at Medecins du Monde


Human Resources Coordinator (M/F) at Medecins du Monde

For more than 30 years, Médecins du Monde, a campaigning medical organisation committed to international solidarity, has been caring for the most vulnerable populations at home and abroad. It has continued to highlight obstacles that exist in accessing health care and has secured sustainable improvements in health-for-all policies. Those working for this independent organisation do not solely dispense care and treatment but condemn violations of human dignity and rights and fight to improve matters for populations living in precarious situations. MdM currently works in 44 countries across all continents where it focuses on 4 priority areas: caring for the health of migrants and displaced persons, promoting sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction associated with drug use, emergencies and crisis.

Violence in the northeast of Nigeria has caused massive displacement and at the same time restricted movement: it has disrupted food supplies, seriously hindered access to basic services, and limited agricultural activities.
Since February 2016, as humanitarian access is increasing, extreme food insecurity and malnutrition conditions have been revealed in Borno state.
MdM has started since October 2016 an emergency response to this crisis, in the Borno state and is looking for experienced human resources to join the team and consolidate its intervention towards vulnerable internally displaced people and host population. In 2017, MDM strategy in Borno state will focus on improving access to: 1) Free comprehensive PHC services, 2) Quality nutrition treatment for malnourished children, 3) Mental health and psychosocial support, 4) Lifesaving medical care, holistic referral services for survivors of gender based violence.
