MDM recruits 01 Pool Medical Coordinator – Slovakia


Médecins du Monde Belgium (MdM BE) is an international medical development NGO and part of an international network. We provide medical assistance to vulnerable groups in Belgium and in the rest of the world.

We aim for universal health coverage where every person has access to health care, without barriers (financial, cultural, geographical, etc.).

In Belgium and in the world, our projects are aimed at all people who do not have or no longer have access to health care. In particular, they are structured around five axes: people on the margins of society (homeless people, undocumented migrants, drug users, sex workers, etc.); children in vulnerable situations; women (accompanied in their fight for equality or against sexual violence, for example); migrants or displaced persons; and victims of crises or conflicts.

To carry out our mission, we rely on three pillars:

  • Caring: providing real access to care for populations.
  • Accompanying: more than helping, we want to change things in the long term.
  • Witness: we do not remain silent. Thanks to our experience and our presence in the field, we challenge the authorities (local, regional and (inter)national) with facts, figures and realities.

Our projects follow a set of values common to all our organization: Social Justice, Empowerment, Independence, Commitment, Balance.
