JOB OPPORTUNITIES AT MEDICAL AID FOR PALESTINIANS

ABOUT MAP

Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) works for a future where every Palestinian has access to a comprehensive, effective and locally-led system of healthcare, and the full realisation of their rights to health and dignity.

To achieve this, we work in collaboration with Palestinian communities and trusted local partners to answer a wide range of health and social needs, from providing vital medical aid in emergencies, to supporting the development of better health services for the long term. We also uplift the voices of Palestinians, and campaign for an end to the barriers to health and dignity that come from living through occupation, displacement, discrimination and conflict.

We deliver significant, sustainable impact for Palestinians in need.

In order to partner effectively with Palestinian communities and to maintain the trust of our local partners, volunteers, employees, supporters, donors, suppliers and other stakeholders, we always operate with integrity.
