Essential Job Duties/Scope of Work:
International Medical Corps (IMC) is an international humanitarian organization with established operations in Iraq since 2003. Since then, our presence in Iraq has been uninterrupted. Our operational experience of all 18 governorates has generated valuable and productive relationships with Iraqi and Kurdish local authorities, as well as UN agencies, and local and international nongovernmental organizations.

Our integrated approach to service provision allows our primary health care service providers to work hand in hand with our mental health and gender-based violence (GBV) interventions while our direct services are offered through mobile medical units and static clinics to deliver primary health care, mental health and psychosocial services, and GBV community support and prevention wherever it is needed most. Capacity building is an important component of all our programming as is focusing on delivering assistance to vulnerable communities. We make every effort to identify sub-groups within refugee, internally displaced, host and returnee populations that are potentially vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, women, children and adolescents, and older persons.

International Medical Corps’ geographic positioning in Iraq is based upon the medical and health needs encountered in various parts of the country, with IMC opening new primary health care centers, women’s centers, medical units and other health facilities throughout the country. Conversely, where it has met the needs of the local communities and established sustainable health care, will move those assets, both human and physical to where the need is the most in Iraq. Thus, IMC is a responsive and mobile provider of emergency medical and health care, serving the people of Iraq, and bolstering the Ministry of Health to be able to provide continued health care in a sustainable manner.
