Job Opportunity at Médecins du Monde – Administrative and Logistics Coordinator

Administrative and logistics coordinator 
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.

In 2011, MdM launched a pioneer pilot program in a district in Dar es Salaam, introducing the concept of Harm Reduction in the fight against the transmission of HIV, HEPC and other bloodborne diseases among the most vulnerable population, more specifically the PWUD. This project is now present in all Dar es Salaam districts, Chalinze and Bagamoyo, and it will start in Arusha and Tanga in the 1Q of 2022.

MdM is also part of a consortium funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC) in the SRH pillar, targeting young KVP (PWUD, sex workers and LGBTQIA2+ community) in an integrated approach. MdM role in this consortium is to identify and enroll the PWUD, SW and LGBTQIA2+ beneficiaries and ensure they access tailored SRH and harm reduction services. MdM activities are embedded to increase the gender-balanced access and the use of SRH services by the target groups, including HIV/STI, SGBV and nutrition services, but will also refer part of the KVP beneficiaries to the other services, like the income generating activities and access to the labor market.
