Field coordinator (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 active in Iraq since the 90’s in Sulaymaniyah area (Ranya and Qualadiza districts) in various issues such as general and specialized surgery, anesthesia, traditional birth attendants training programs and access to health care for IDPs and people from remote villages. 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 the IDPs in the KR-I through the support of mobile clinics, fixed clinics but also the support to local partners and the Ministry of Health.
As the context evolves, MdM is currently switching from mobile clinics to PHCC support, aiming at supporting 3 PHCCs in Sinjar district, 1 in Tel Afar district and 1 in Tel Kaif district, as well as providing continuous support to Chamesku camp’s PHCC.
