Finance coordinator (M/F) – Nigeria

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 more than 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 is active in North-East Nigeria since 2016. The program is implemented around the main following components:

  • Access to primary health care
  • Nutrition treatment (severe acute malnutrition)
  • Gender based violence survivors’ treatment
  • Mental health and psychological support

MdM has its coordination office in Maiduguri and a sub office in Damboa. The team is composed of around 10 expatriates and 300 national staffs.

Untill recently MdM’s intervention was emergency oriented, with five MdM clinics (3 in Maiduguri, 2 in Damboa) plus an emergency response team for rapid response to sudden population displacements and cholera outbreaks.
