MSF -OCBA being a medical organization has a duty to protect the health of its employees and its beneficiaries. In that respect, the vaccination against Covid 19, like other specific vaccinations linked to the mission contexts will be a pre-requisite for the recruitment for overseas positions. MSF OCBA will facilitate the vaccination for those confirmed for field departures.



Because Doctors Without Borders' purpose is to bring medical assistance to people in distress, the work may occur in settings of active conflict, or in post-conflict environments, in which there are inherent risks, potential danger and ongoing threats to safety and security. Doctors Without Borders acknowledges that it is impossible to exclude all risks, but it does its utmost as an organization to mitigate and manage these risks through strict and comprehensive security protocols.

Field workers will be fully informed of the risk associated with a potential mission before accepting a particular posting. Working for Doctors Without Borders is a deeply personal choice; individuals must determine for themselves the level of risk and the circumstances in which they feel comfortable, based on a full and transparent understanding of the possibilities they may face. Once in the mission, all Doctors Without Borders staff must strictly observe security rules and regulations; failure to do so may result in dismissal.



Due to the nature of MSF's maternity projects, it is essential to have more information about your specific technical competences in obstetrics. It is a checklist, intended for midwives who may have responsibilities in obstetrics and reproductive health. It must be completed according to your current level of practice. The first part covers basic skills and key competences, while the second part includes emergency obstetric procedures.

This information will be useful for a better allocation of staff to the positions and to identify specific training needs. The lack of skills will not prevent you from being assigned a mission, so please be honest in your self-assessment.
