Medical Teams works where we are needed most. Often, that requires us to be flexible and quick to respond—disasters can be unpredictable and sudden. The situation that Rohingya refugees find themselves in is just such a disaster.
Working in collaboration with partners on the ground, Medical Teams is treating refugees in the settlements. Initially, we helped prevent the outbreak of infectious disease through community outreach activities connected to a temporary Diarrhea Treatment Center. Now, our volunteers and staff are building Primary Healthcare Clinics and Diarrhea Treatment Units, treating patients, and training refugees as Community Health Workers. We also serve as a vital link between the critically ill and their access to emergency care, referring patients with urgent needs to nearby healthcare facilities.
We are currently recruiting for nurses and doctors with international or disaster experience who can deploy for four weeks to Bangladesh.
