COVID-19 Deployment Opportunity in the African and Eastern Mediterranean regions

Under the coordination of the WHO Emergency Medical Teams, we are looking for mid-senior clinical and IPC experts that are able and willing to take part in short-term deployments in the African and Eastern Mediterranean regions.

Under the coordination of the WHO Emergency Medical Teams, we are doing our part in mitigating the effects of COVID-19 around the world through expertise and training. For this reason, we are looking for mid-senior clinical and IPC experts that are able and willing to take part in short-term deployments (2-4 weeks) in the African and Eastern Mediterranean regions to share their knowledge and experience in further building the healthcare capacity in the target countries. In particular, the ideal profiles have:

  • A university degree in medicine or in nursing from an accredited/recognized institution.
  • Clinical experience in intensive care management and/or management of infectious diseases, emergency medicine, pneumology, pediatric anesthesia.
  • Experience in COVID-19 patient management, triage of respiratory distress patients, transport, treatment protocols, or other relevant COVID-19 expertise.
  • Ability to share their knowledge (an educational/training background is highly desirable).
  • Fluency in English is required, working knowledge of Arabic is an asset, knowledge of any other UN language or any local language may be an asset depending on the country of deployment.
