Health coordinator (F/M)

Odessa , Ukraine

Travailler avec Médecins du Monde

For more than 40 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 30 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. 

Three MdM chapters are directly implementing activities in Ukraine:

  • MdM Spain has the lead for global MdM response in the country and covers Kiev and surroundings, Donbass, Kharkiv, Zaporidja
  • MdM Germany covers Dnipro and Vinitsia
  • MdM France covers the Southern part, Odessa, Mykolaiv, Kherson

In Mykolaiv oblast, MdM-F supports Mykolaiv Ukrainian Red Cross Society (URCS) in restoring access to primary health care and Mental Health and Psychosocial Services (MHPSS) for populations affected by the conflict. The component of sexual and reproductive health, as well as gender based violence is part of this project.

In Odessa oblast, MdM-F collaborates with the LIGA association, a LGBTQI+ organisation dedicated to sensitize about LGBTQI+ topics, offering STIs and HIV testing, and offering temporary shelter for IDPs arriving in Odessa because of the war. MdM-F will financially support this organisation, and provide a medical doctor for general consultations to the beneficiaries of LIGA, including sex workers.
