Regional grants manager - Syria/Iraq crisis (M/F)

Amman
Jordan

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 15th of March 2011, following the demonstrations in Dera’a and then in the major cities of Syria, the situation has been worsening in all the country. The conflict between the Syrian army and different oppositions groups resulted in the death and casualties of thousands of people, massive displacements of populations within the country and into neighbouring countries.

MdM strategy to support Syrian population is based on a regional approach around 3 main axes:

- Support to refugee populations: primary, sexual and reproductive and post-operative health care for Syrian refugees in neighboring countries through MdM clinics and support to local organizations in Lebanon and Jordan.
- Support to existing health facilities inside Syria: emergency medical assistance to Syrian population inside Syria through the support of networks of Syrian doctors or existing health facilities.
- Support to displaced populations in Iraq and Syria: primary and sexual and reproductive health services for internal displaced populations through MdM Clinics and Mobile Clinics in camps and urban settings.

In June 2014, regarding the situation of massive displacement people (Syrian Refugees, Iraqi IDPs) in Iraq the past few months, MdM decides to launch an exploratory mission. Following the result of this evaluation, MdM decided to launch a program targeting IDPs in the Kurdistan region and Kirkuk governorate through mobile and fixed clinics in support of local partners and the Ministry of Health.

To support MdM response and the country missions in implementing and monitoring the activities, a regional representation office based in Amman has been set up in 2013. In June 2016, the decision has been taken to promote this office into a coordination office, in order to reinforce the support provided to the country mission as well as decentralize some support services in order to increase the quality of the services provided.
