Field coordinator Kachin (M/F)

Field coordinator Kachin (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.

MdM has been operating in Myanmar since 1994. Its main programme delivers comprehensive harm reduction and HIV/AIDS prevention and care, focusing on the high-risk groups of drug users (Kachin State), female sex workers and men having sex with men (Yangon area).
In addition, MdM is implementing, in partnership with a local NGO, a community-led harm reduction program in Kachin as well.
