UK-Med is a humanitarian charity that has been responding to disasters for thirty years. We train medical teams, both in the UK and worldwide, so they are ready to respond when epidemics, conflict and natural disasters hit. When Ebola struck West Africa in 2014 we recruited and trained UK doctors and nurses who helped local medical teams and other NGOs to bring the outbreak under control. We are core partners, providing the clinical component of the UK Emergency Medical Team (UK EMT) in line with WHO standards.
We are working in partnership with Humanity and Inclusion (HI) to improve disaster preparedness in Myanmar, one of the world’s most hazard-prone countries. We are seeking a medical doctor with expertise in emergency / disaster response to join us as Health Technical Advisor to the project.
