About

The Needs Assessment and Grants Coordinator will report to the Humanitarian Response Team Leader or Country Director for the coordination of humanitarian needs assessments and grants coordination during a humanitarian response deployment.

Medical Teams International maintains a humanitarian response roster in order to facilitate the rapid response of humanitarian professionals and volunteers to emergencies around the world.

Collaborating with local government agencies and other humanitarian actors, we evaluate the emergency’s impact and coordinate with our humanitarian response roster of trained and experienced humanitarian response personnel to respond within 48 hours. Through partnerships with local health organizations, we provide emergency medical care, transitional health, and community programming for impacted communities, from humanitarian response to development, saving lives and improving quality of care. MTI’s humanitarian response interventions include health, nutrition, and WASH.
