Medecins du Monde Administrative coordinator Jobs in Uganda

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.
