Whether a Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) project is a response to an emergency or to longer-term needs, provision of reproductive health is an important component.
Among other reproductive health activities, MSF teams conduct antenatal consultations, manage obstetric emergencies, provide prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) treatment to HIV-positive pregnant women, and care for patients suffering from sexual violence-related injuries.
As a midwife with MSF, your clinical, teaching, and management skills are essential. You could be involved in setting up a mother-child health department in a rural clinic, supervising reproductive health care in mobile clinics, or caring for high-risk patients in an urban hospital.
Prior to applying, we ask that you take time to review our Termination of Pregnancy Policy.
