CALL FOR LETTER OF INTENT Security Training for Medecins du Monde in the Philippines

Employer: M├ędecins du Monde
Location: Philippines
Closing date: 10 Apr 2016


M├ędecins du Monde (MdM) is an international humanitarian organization whose mission is to provide medical care for the most vulnerable populations, the world over, including France. It seeks to stimulate voluntary commitment from doctors, other health care providers, and from those whose expertise in other fields is needed for its activities, to enlist all competent support required for the achievement of its projects, and to seek at all times to encourage close working relationships with populations in its care.


In the Philippines, MdM implements since 2013 a project aiming to mitigate the environmental and health hazards linked to informal e-waste dismantling. The project targets informal dismantlers as vulnerable population in order to improve access to health services adapted to their needs, as well as seeking to develop their social and legal status, in four urban poor areas of Metro Manila. The project aims to mitigate sanitary and environmental consequences of informal dismantling through

1- capacity building of informal e-waste dismantlers’ communities,

2- knowledge and skills development of informal e-waste dismantlers

3- strengthening of the health care system on heavy metal intoxication

4- advocacy for access to health care


The Philippines mission can potentially be affected by very different types of security incidents, ranging from devastating natural disasters (cyclones, earthquakes) to criminal activities in the urban poor areas where MdM operates (shooting, violence, criminality). In 2016 elections will take place at national level in May and at barangay / municipality level in October, during the campaign period before the elections, security incidents will very likely increased, due to confrontations between supporters of different parties.

MdM is therefore looking for a consultant to deliver a tailored security training to its team, specifically adapted to the context of Metro Manila where the programme is implemented.
