Grants, compliance and partnership manager (M/F) - Myanmar

Yangon (Myanmar)

For more than 30 years, Médecins du Monde, a campaigning medical organisation committed to international solidarity, has been caring for the most vulnerable populations at home and abroad. It has continued to highlight obstacles that exist in accessing health care and has secured sustainable improvements in health-for-all policies.
Those working for this independent organisation do not solely dispense care and treatment but condemn violations of human dignity and rights and fight to improve matters for populations living in precarious situations.
MdM currently works in more than 45 countries across all continents where it focuses on 5 priority areas: emergency and crisis, sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction, migrants and displaced populations (health rights), health and environment.

MdM has been operating in Myanmar since 1994. Its main programmes deliver comprehensive Harm Reduction and HIV/AIDS prevention and care, focusing on the high risk groups of Drug Users (Kachin State), Sex Workers and Men having Sex with Men (Yangon area). In addition, MdM is implementing, in partnership with a local NGO a community-led Harm Reduction program in Kachin as well.
Currently, MdM is focusing on the following projects:
-A comprehensive Harm Reduction programme aiming at increasing access to HIV/VHC prevention and care services, in Yangon and Kachin. Care and treatment services primarily consist in the provision of HIV treatment, Hepatitis B vaccination, tuberculosis treatment as well as screening and treatment services for opportunistic infections. As part of its global strategy and advocacy priorities, MdM is also involved in Hepatitis C screening and support the national efforts to ensure access to appropriate care. MdM works closely with other national and international actors as well as community groups promoting a network of service providers for people requiring specific care.
-Since April 2016, an additional programme has started to complement the MdM Kachin Harm Reduction Strategy. The programme is a collaborative initiative from two partners, MdM and Metta Development Foundation who have decided to join their efforts, knowledge and skills to start a comprehensive intervention for PWID in Kachin. Whereas Metta will be implementing Harm Reduction activities in new sites and supporting MdM in local advocacy strategy, the MdM role will focus on development of capacity building material, training, mentoring and on the job training to Metta and other Harm Reduction Partners in Kachin.
Today, MdM is working with multiple institutional donors to support its operational strategy and aims at strengthening its internal capacity, with this new position, to deal with grants management, compliance requirements and partnerships’ relationships.
