Network operations coordinator - Syria/Turkey (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 35 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-France began implementing activities in Syria in 2012, developing progressively cross border operations from different countries. 2018 has been a transitional year as the context evolved strongly. MdM network, through different chapters, is present in different areas in Syria and is working under different modalities.

  • Syrian teams are delivering direct services, through health facilities and mobile units
  • Local partners are supported financially and technically
  • Local health authorities, when existent, are supported through medicines provision

2019 will go through new context evolution, which will request to adapt again our modalities of intervention, within the MdM network.
