Deputy finance coordinator Syria (M/F)
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.
Since the 15th of March 2011, beginning of mass demonstrations savagely repressed by the government in the city of Dera’a, then in other main towns of Syria, situation has dramatically deteriorated. The military conflict between the Syrian army and the opposition forces has resulted in massive displacements of populations inside the country and in neighbouring countries i.e. Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan.
