International Medical Corps is currently implementing approximately 10 programs across nine sites in South Sudan. Through nearly 40 health facilities in urban and rural areas, International Medical Corps provides basic health care and integrated service provision, from preventative care to emergency surgery. To address South Sudan’s acute health worker shortage, and foster self-reliance, International Medical Corps trains health professionals and community volunteers. Also, IMC is implementing nutrition, sexual and reproductive health, mental health, and GBV and public health interventions in South Sudan.
IMC South Sudan is implementing DFID-financed GBV prevention and response program in Upper Nile, Jonglei Lakes and Unity states. IMC has secured a four year grant from DFID to implement GBV prevention and response programs in various sites across the country. This grant includes a component of protection program and income generating activities. IMC works to mainstream protection and GBV in their other programming to ensure safe access to quality services for vulnerable people. The grant runs through March of 2020.

He/she will also be responsible for managing donor relations and country-level representation. The Coordinator will support, encourage, and coach a large contingent of international and national GBV staff.
