Essential Job Duties/Scope of Work:


BACKGROUND TO THE ASSIGNMENT:

Following the disastrous 2018 and 2019 Atlantic hurricane seasons, International Medical Corps has been requested by impacted health departments, healthcare coalitions, and health center facilities to leverage its experience internationally managing health and medical disasters to provide preparedness training to health care staff in communities recovering from disasters.
