Administrator (M/F) – 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 more than 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-F has been operating in Ethiopia since 1986 in different types of health projects from long-term interventions to emergency response in various regions (Somali, Afar…).

In response to the Tigray crisis, MdM has sent a fact-finding mission to set-up an emergency program.

The security situation in Tigray remains volatile and unpredictable and access is particularly limited in remote and rural areas.
