Emergency MHPSS supervisor (F/M) – Gaza

Médecins du Monde

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.

According to UNRWA, nearly 1.9 million people in Gaza, or nearly 85 percent of the population, are estimated to be internally displaced, including people who have been displaced multiple times.

It is worth mentioning that the acute shortage of fuel and electricity is seriously affecting the most critical functions of all hospitals and the response capacity of ambulances. Depletion of fuel endangers the lives of patients in intensive care, those who need surgery or neonatal incubators. The two main hospitals in southern Gaza are operating at three times their capacity, while facing severe shortages of basic supplies and fuel. According to the Ministry of Health in Gaza, the occupancy rate now reaches 206% in hospital wards and 250% in intensive care units. In addition, these hospitals house thousands of displaced people.

In addition, continued bombing and destruction have seriously affected the infrastructure of the Gaza Strip and hampered ambulance access to the injured (76 ambulances were affected), as well as access for people of concern. to health services.
