Job description :



Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is a private medical organization providing health care to populations in distress (e.g. victims of natural disasters, victims of conflict) without discrimination and with commitment to medical ethics, evidence-based medicine. MSF has a large scope of medical activities: from primary health care to tertiary care such as intensive care or reconstructive surgery. In addition, MSF is involved in operational research; e.g. antibiotic stewardship, non-communicable diseases or Ebola vaccine.

To go further, have a look at our website: http://www.msf.org


Five years after the start of the Syrian conflict, the impact on neighboring Lebanon is huge - Lebanon is hosting about 1.5 million Syrian refugees, including 400.000 in Bekaa Valley where the MSF project is located. In addition the country is hosting more than 300,000 Palestinian refugees due to earlier waves of displacement.

Syrian, Palestinian and vulnerable Lebanese populations are affected by physical and economic barriers to access affordable, quality health services, especially at secondary and tertiary levels where costs are higher and hospital stay longer.

PICU services in Lebanon are very few countrywide and most of them are private health facilities. Children in need of intensive care are taken to adult intensive care units (sometimes pediatric) where families have to cover the expenses.


In collaboration with the Ministry of Health, MSF has opened a pediatric unit in a Lebanese public hospital located in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. The goal is to provide free of charge pediatric care to Syrian and Palestinian refugees, as well as vulnerable Lebanese children aged 1 month - 15 years old in need. This unit includes a general ward, an intensive and intermediate care unit and surgical capacities.

The intensive and intermediate care unit has, respectively, 2 beds (possible expansion to 4) and 4 beds (possible expansion to 6). The role of the intensive care specialist will be to run, in collaboration with Lebanese intensivists, the unit, to participate in the implementation of MSF medical protocols and bed-side care and to work in conjunction and as part of a referral system with other hospitals, health facilities and universities. The candidate will be part of a medical team and will work as part of the pediatric service.

De trop nombreuses candidatures au regard des possibilités de départ (occasionnant un délai d'attente d'environ un an) nous conduisent à inviter les infirmiers généralistes à postuler dans quelques mois. Ce message ne concerne pas les infirmiers ayant une expérience significative en néonatologie, très recherchés pour nos programmes.

Il en est de même pour les logisticiens généralistes (délai d'attente environ 10 mois). Nous vous conseillons donc de postuler dans quelques mois. Ce message ne s'adresse pas aux logisticiens spécialisés (EHA, construction, mécanicien…) NB : logisticiens EHA expérimentés MSF ou autre ONG très recherchés en ce moment.

Enfin, nos besoins concernant les postes de chargés de communication sont satisfaits pour l'année 2018. Pour ces postes, il est donc demandé aux candidats de ne postuler qu'à compter d'octobre/novembre 2018.
