Job Description

BACKGROUND: The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.

The humanitarian situation in Libya has deteriorated since the 2014 civil war. 1.1 million People require urgent health assistance, including an estimated 700,000 IDPs and 1 million refugees and migrants. In response, the IRC launched an emergency program in September 2016 in Libya which aimed to provide life-saving medical care, medicines, and medical supplies to Libyans and non-Libyans and in doing so strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Health. The IRC Libya program is in the process of expanding the scope and scale of both protection and health programming in Misrata, Sirte and Tripoli, developing an outcome focused strategy that aims to restore and strengthen the primary health care system, focusing on ensuring survival, equitably, and at scale to reach the largest number of clients.
