Essential Job Duties/Scope of Work:

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.

1. BACKGROUND TO THE ASSIGNMENT:

On December 31, 2019, the World Health Organization was notified of a cluster of cases of respiratory illness in the Wuhan, Hubei Province, People’s Republic of China. The illness was associated with an open seafood market in Wuhan, and the infective agent was later identified as a novel coronavirus, now called COVID-19. Since December 2019, the number of confirmed cases has increased rapidly, and cases have been reported throughout the world.

As a result of the rapidly rising caseload, the rapid transmission and the impact of coronavirus, the WHO Director-General has declared COVID-19 as a pandemic. As of March 30, Johns Hopkins University reports over 800,000 confirmed cases in 179 countries/regions, with over 39,000 deaths reported.
