Logistics 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 more than 40 countries across all continents where it focuses on 5 priority areas: emergency and crisis, sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction, migrants and displaced populations (health rights), health and environment.
MdM has been working in Pakistan since 1996. The organization currently implements three main projects:
•A post emergency program focusing on access to health care for the populations affected by the conflict in the Khyber-Pakhtoonkhwa (KPK) province.
Since May 2009, the KPK province experienced several crises, following continuous military interventions in various locations which resulted in massive displacements of populations. MdM has been operating to provide access to health care services to both displaced and host populations in this province.
•A long-term program focusing on Family Planning and Prevention of Unwanted Pregnancies in Punjab province.
MdM in collaboration with Population Welfare Department (PWD) of Punjab, has been implementing a 2 year pilot project to increase the awareness of the target community about family planning, to strengthen the volunteer support groups and to improve the knowledge and skills of the service provider i.e. PWD.
Following an exploratory mission that took place in May 2005, Operation Smile program was initiated for the first time in Pakistan in October 2005. This mission gives priority to the treatment of sequels of burns to women victims of violence. Several plastic surgery operations are necessary for the patients suffering from the burns to recover a certain physical mobility and functionality.
MdM appoints a surgery team twice a year to provide access to plastic surgery through a partner hospital in Islamabad.
