Surgery Advisor

Effective 1 January 2014 we are looking for a:

Surgery Advisor

100%
based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The overall purpose of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is to preserve life and alleviate suffering while protecting human dignity and seeking to restore the ability of people to make their own decisions. MSF accomplishes this through the provision of medical aid and a personal commitment to act as witness to events surrounding populations in danger. This work is essentially performed in periods of crisis, when a situation is no longer held in balance and the very survival of a population may be threatened. The underlying basis for realising its objectives is respect for medical ethics, humanistic ideals, human rights, and international humanitarian law.
The Public Health Department (PHD) of the MSF Operational Centre Amsterdam (OCA) supports the overall purpose of MSF, providing medical and public health leadership for the organisation. The department is responsible for providing strategic direction and integrated advice on medical and public health issues to the field and headquarters. The PHD plays a key role in developing and maintaining the medical humanitarian identity and image of MSF-OCA, and in continuing to develop and improve intervention strategies so as to be relevant and effective.
The department is made up of a group of generalist Health Advisors (based in Amsterdam and Berlin) and medical and public health specialists (e.g., epidemiology, infectious diseases, laboratory, mental health, nutrition, pharmaceutical  quality/ medical supply, reproductive health, and water/sanitation) so as to provide expert support in a range of fields. The Manson Unit, a medical unit based in MSF-UK, focuses on support to tuberculosis and epidemiology, including longer-term direct field support to overcome implementation challenges. 
The strategic vision for MSF-OCA continues to prioritise operations that respond to the medical needs of people in areas of active and chronic conflict.  We are working to improve and professionalise the surgical care provided in the field to our patients with emphasis on patient safety, field anaesthesia and pain management. In 2014 more attention will be given to identify minimal standards of surgical care, tools and structures, and assist the field to achieve these standards in their surgical projects.

- Assist field teams to prepare and organize specialised short-term surgical interventions, e.g. eye camp
- Identify the needs and capacity gaps for increased/differing logistics expertise in support of surgical procurement and related logistics issues
