MdM France recruits 01 Deputy medical coordinator
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 45 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.
After 50 years of occupation in Palestine characterized with a systematic denial of Palestinian Human Rights, a continuous conflict and several outbreaks of violence, around 2.3 million Palestinians are in need of humanitarian assistance mainly in Gaza strip, in the area C of the West-Bank (WB) and in the East Jerusalem.
MdM France strategy in Palestine focuses on 3 topics: Mental Health & Psychosocial Support (MHPSS), Sexual & Reproductive Health (SRH) and Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPREP)
EPREP: MdM intervention in Gaza consists in strengthening local capacities (community level and Ministry of Health structures: PHC and Hospitals) to be ready and to respond to medical emergency surges. Since 30th March 2018, as part of the current response, a post-operation and injured-related care intervention is being conducted within our areas of intervention in the Gaza strip
MHPSS: MdM intervention in Gaza focuses on the integration of Mental Health in the MoH Hospital Emergency departments and in the support to mental health activities in the community through local partners.
SRH: MdM has developed a comprehensive strategy aiming to provide quality contraception methods at primary health level with a full integration of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) services, within a global right centered approach.
