International Medical Corps, a global humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through relief and development programs, seeks candidates for the position of GBV Advisor for our anticipated USAID Gender-Based Violence (GBV) program in Eastern DRC. This position is contingent on the consortium being awarded funding from USAID and is anticipated to begin in September 2017.
Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in underserved communities worldwide. International Medical Corps has worked in DRC since 1999. We have since served more than two million people in DRC, 80 percent of whom were displaced by the war. Today, we provide health care, nutrition, gender-based violence prevention and response, and basic water and sanitation services in some of DRC’s most remote and volatile areas, often where the presence of other international organizations is extremely limited or non-existent.
POSITION SPECIFIC BACKGROUND
International Medical Corps is seeking a GBV Advisor for a five year, multimillion dollar USAID-funded project in Eastern DRC. The future GBV project will build upon current USAID-supported programming in country.
