Communication coordinator MdM international network (F/M)

Saint-Denis, France

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. 

The Médecins du Monde (MdM) international network is a decentralized but highly connected and interdependent organization made up of 17 associations. Its values are deeply rooted in each MdM association: activism, social justice, empowerment, independence and balance. We also share a vision: a world where there will be no more obstacles to health, and where health will be recognized as a fundamental right, and principles: to care, to bear witness, to advocate, to accompany social change, to honor humanitarian principles. Médecins du Monde’s international network is supported by the Network Support Team (NST). The role of the NST is to support the network in implementing its mission and strategy.
