Administrative coordinator (M/F)

Administrative 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.


Since 2011 the conflict in Syria has resulted in massive displacements of population within the country and into neighboring countries, particularly to Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey. Following assessments in these countries, MdM activities started on Syrian borders in May 2012, offering primary and specialized healthcare services for refugees and displaced Syrian populations.

MdM has been working in Lebanon for nearly 30 years and specifically on the response to the Syrian crisis since 2012. MdM’s objective in Lebanon is to offer quality and affordable access to care for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese affected by this crisis. Currently, primary healthcare services are provided through partner NGOs in 5 primary healthcare centers (PHCCs) in the Bekaa and Mount Lebanon. MdM is also directly implementing a mental health and psycho-social support (MHPSS) program for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese in 3 centers (in the Bekaa and Beirut). Since 2017, as a complement to its usual activities, MdM in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) has been conducting research studies related to mental health: one to better understand the factors influencing the resilience with Syrian refugee children and another one to experiment a telephoned intervention.
