Job vacancies at MSF - Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) - Eastern Africa

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) translates to Doctors without Borders. MSF teams work in more than 70 countries to provide lifesaving assistance where it is needed the most.

Our actions are guides by medical ethics and the principles of independence, neutrality and impartiality.


MSF has some of its largest medical projects across East Africa including Sudan, South Sudan, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia and Burundi. MSF Eastern Africa is the regional office for MSF, based in Kenya. It supports our medical programmes in the region, recruiting staff to help run our operations around the world and raises awareness of humanitarian crises that we are responding to.  


We are continuously looking for medical and non-medical staff to make our work possible. By the year 2022, more than 68,000 people worked with MSF and contributed to giving lifesaving medical assistance to people who would otherwise be denied access to healthcare, clean water and shelter.
