MEAL advisor (M/F) - Yemen

Closing date

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.

MdM has been working in Yemen for many years. MdM currently intervenes in the northern governorates of Sanaa and Amanat Alasima (support to 5 health facilities) as well as in the southern governorates of Abyan, Lahj and Aden (support to 10 health facilities). The strategy is based on two key axes: provide primary healthcare services, and provide mental healthcare and psychosocial support in specific healthcare institutions and through a network of community health volunteers.
