Field coordinator (M/F) - Turkey

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 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 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.Due to the political situation worsening inside Northern Irak in 2014, populations have fled the country and searched for shelter in the neighboring countries mainly in Turkey. The estimation is that over 30.000 Yezidi’s refugees are scattered inside Turkey. Since 2014, MdM, in collaboration with a local partner Doctors World Wide Turkey (DWWT) has be providing primary health care (PHC) services in Yezidi’s refugee camp in Diyarbakir, Batman and Sirnak as well as services for Syrian refugees and host population.
