TELEPHONE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
Médecins du Monde reserves the right to fill the vacancy before the closing date for applications.
MdM stands up for the integration of people living with disabilities and fights against discrimination.

Description

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. 

MdM has its coordination office in Maiduguri, a field office in Maiduguri city, a sub office in Damboa and a liaison office in Abuja. The team is around 6 expatriates and 250 national staffs. 

For now, MdM is running directly 3 clinics in Maiduguri in informal IDP camps. In Damboa, a field team has been in place since June 2017 where MdM is running 2 fixed clinics in 2 IDP camps (also for host population). In addition, MdM Damboa medical team is semi-remotely supporting 2 health posts (Ministry of Health) outside Damboa town.

Until recently MdM’s intervention was pretty much emergency oriented, with 5 MdM runned clinics plus an emergency response team (ERT) for rapid response to sudden population displacements and cholera outbreaks. Currently the mission is shifting its logic of intervention towards a Nexus approach: ERT team doesn’t exist anymore and we are slowly shifting from substitution programming (MdM clinics) to the support to State MoH health facilities in a bid to foster sustainability. 

At the same time, 2 needs assessments have been conducted by MdM teams in Zamfara State in 2021 and even though we are not planning to be operational in this area in the coming months, we keep a close eye to the developments in this region and start to work on our access strategy. This could lead to a scale-up in MdM’s humanitarian operations.
