Roving emergency field coordinator (M/F)
Roving emergency 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 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.
The Emergency Unit oversees the organization’s global emergency preparedness and response activities. Our mission is to re-establish the continuum of care where disrupted or non-existent in the wake of a natural or manmade disaster and in the case of both forgotten and long-standing crises, where vulnerable populations can no longer access care.
The roving emergency field coordinator is part of an emergency team that can be deployed in the field for up to 80% of the work time - either in an emergency or roving capacity,
Emergency team members may be deployed to start a new intervention on a crisis setting or to support existing MdM country programmes in their emergency response or preparedness activities.
The roving emergency coordinators have the critical responsibility to assess, design and implement the response to meet the immediate health-related needs of the affected population.
They may be requested to provide specific support or training for the teams in place. The missions are diverse in terms of contexts as well as types of responsibilities.
The duration of each mission assignment is 3 months maximum.
Non-field-based activities can be up to 20% of the work time mainly based in Paris (HQ).
