In your role as pharmacist you will be coordinating, supervising and training a local team in handling drugs and other medical supplies based on MSF policies and pharmaceutical regulations. Furthermore, you will cooperate with government officials on supply chain issues and handle one-on-one communication with patients who need treatment.
