Administration Coordinator Job at Médecins du Monde

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
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 40 countries across all continents where it focuses on 4
priority areas: caring for the health of migrants and displaced persons,
promoting sexual and reproductive health, combating HIV and reducing
the harm and risks associated with drug use, crises and conflicts.

In Nigeria, violence in the northeast has caused massive displacement
and at the same time restricted movement: it has disrupted food
supplies, seriously hindered access to basic services, and limited
agricultural activities. People affected by violence in Adamawa, Borno,
and Yobe, and neighbouring Bauchi, Taraba, and Gombe states are in
urgent need of protection, shelter, food, and access to health services
and education.

the field in the coming weeks.
