International Medical Corps is a global humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs.
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 areas worldwide. By offering training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at high risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.
In response to an outbreak of violence in 2013, International Medical Corps has been working in the most seriously affected communities in Timbuktu and Gourma-Rharous districts with programs focused on health, nutrition and protection. Our health response in northern Mali promotes free, quality, curative and preventive health services in areas severely affected by the recent war. Since 2013, International Medical Corps has helped local health care systems in Gourma-Rharous and Timbuktu districts regain self-reliance and credibility by rehabilitating and supplying community health centers, recruiting and training health workers, and strengthening emergency response and disease surveillance. We have also enhanced water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities in all health centers we support and provided equipment including water pumps and tanks, handwashing stations and latrines. When Ebola spread to Mali in 2014, International Medical Corps worked to strengthen the country’s health care system to quickly detect, contain and respond to potential Ebola cases by training health care workers and other professionals in Ebola case management, with a focus on the regions of Segou and Sikasso.
Gender-based violence rates in Mali significantly increased during the recent conflict in the north. The harm caused by sexual violence goes beyond those directly affected, causing painful social disruptions within families and communities. Besides promoting clinical and psychosocial care in a confidential, competent and compassionate manner, we focus on building community resilience and providing support to survivors through 15 health facilities in Gourma-Rharous and Timbuktu districts and two mobile clinics in Taoudeni district.
Since 2018, International Medical Corps has extended its interventions in Segou region by integrating reproductive health, nutrition and protection/GBV services to the multi-year epidemiological surveillance program under implementation between September 2015 and March 2019.
The primary function of the Health and Nutrition Coordinator includes supporting the Field Coordinator in the implementation of Health, Nutrition and WASH in facilities activities, reporting and reinforcing the technical capacity of the Ministry of Health staff through day-to-day supervision, mentoring and coaching as well as training. The Health and Nutrition Coordinator is expected to contribute in building sustainable interventions in promoting integration of nutrition services into the health services package and responsible for maintaining regular contact with all partners.
