Ukraine Program Coordinator – Ukraine
MDM has been operating in Ukraine since 2014, but since February 24, 2022, the situation has changed dramatically. In terms of health, the scope of needs has completely changed and geographically, the line of conflict in the Donbass region has shifted with the appearance of new conflict zones; these facts have created new areas of intervention and thematically, massive new health needs have arisen due to the open conflict.
The context is changing and we must constantly reassess access and needs. Currently, MdM is active in the following areas: the Donbass region through its branches in Bahkmut and Sievierodonetsk (with limitations due to current access), in the Eastern and Central region (including Kharkiv, Butcha and Irpin) through its branch office in Kyiv and Dnipro and in the Western region through its field office in Chernivtsi.
The MdM team works in three main components with the aim of responding to the urgent health needs of the population, displaced and non-displaced, affected by the armed conflict in Ukraine:
Provision of emergency and non-emergency health items to health facilities
Provision of basic health services (including SRH and MHPSS) to non-displaced population affected by the conflict and displaced persons.
Reinforcement of the organization’s logistical capacity to ensure the delivery of humanitarian aid.
The Program Coordinator will be responsible for the overall delivery and quality of the program in Ukraine, working closely with the team.
