Ensure the proper functioning of the pediatric medical activities under his/her responsibility at the supported health facilities, defining and implementing MSF policies, protocols and procedures, and guaranteeing the quality of pediatric healthcare in order to improve health conditions of the target population and decrease U5 mortality rate


  Being a paediatrician with MSF is a challenging and exciting role, and the needs are very diverse depending upon the project you      work in.

  Paediatricians are based in the project, and will often care for children affected by some or all of the following:

  • Malaria
  • Malnutrition
  • HIV/AIDs or TB
  • Injuries sustained in a conflict zone
  • Trauma
  • Tropical Diseases​



  • Residency in pediatrics
  • Medical registration
  • Current or recent clinical experience
  • Ability to work with limited resources and in difficult conditions.
  • Good level of English and/or French. Priority will be given to candidates with knowledge of both languages.
  • Minimum availability of 12 months (divided in two missions of six months).
  • User-level IT skills
  • Training in tropical medicine and/or experience working with HIV, tuberculosis and other infectious diseases.






Due to the nature of MSF's projects, it is essential to have more information about your specific technical competences in paediatrics. It is a checklist that must be completed according to your current level of practice. 

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.
