Job Summary

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 more than 45 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 used to be operational in Uganda from the 1990s until 2005. MdM ran HIV/AIDS programmes with technical and financial support to the hospital of Kakuuto for HIV counselling and testing, and for laboratory activities. Médecins du Monde France also supported the creation of the Kakuuto Aids Post Test Club (KAPTC) for psychosocial activities for people living with HIV. MdM also provided support to CIPA, a community-based organisation set up to ensure the sustainability of HIV/AIDS prevention activities.
Since 2015, MdM has been supporting Most At-Risk Populations (MARPI) through grants and training. Besides that, MdM has trained members of grassroots LGBT organisations to project cycle management. In addition, MdM provides local LGBT leaders (three in 2017-2018) with scholarships for training on leadership.
In July 2017, a fact-finding mission was conducted in the South Sudanese refugee settlement of Bidibidi, northern Uganda, where the French section of MSF has been present since 2016. The fact-finding mission has led to an intervention proposal to progressively take over all the MSF activities at Bolomoni HC III (Health Centre level 3) as well as their outreach activities in Bidibidi refugee settlement by the end of the year 2017. Then a 3-year intervention (2018-2020) with a possible partnership with Human Rights Awareness and Promotion Forum (HRAPF) will aim at reducing mortality and morbidity rates. It will include:
•The running of all OPD and IPD activities at the Bolomoni HC III
•The preparation of the progressive handover of the Bolomoni HC III to the health district of Yumbe through capacity building of MoH staff
•A close collaboration with the local population and the empowerment of communities
•A strong focus on mental health and psychosocial support, while developing a mental health community approach and covering some gaps identified
•The strengthening of the GBV levels of intervention through covering some gaps identified
•A socio-anthropological analysis of community organisation, community coping mechanisms and expression of emotion within the refugee settlements.
