Why should you apply to join ALIMA ?

When joining ALIMA (The Alliance for International Medical Action), a non-profit medical humanitarian organization based in Dakar, you’ll become part of a different kind of humanitarian adventure, one that directly involves local communities and non-profits.

Thanks to this collaboration, you’ll have the opportunity to better treat more patients.

With ALIMA, you will co-construct your career and professional projects with us , and you will contribute to a new humanitarian model that involves local actors, through:

  • Collective intelligence and  trust
  • Actions defined by field teams in ALIMA countries: localized decision-making, with patients and communities at the heart of the process
  • Headquarters with a primary role of supporting and advising country teams
  • The opportunity for our employees to accompany the growth and structuring of ALIMA and to grow with the non-profit.

At ALIMA, we are committed to equality and inclusion. For example, we are committed to increasing the representation of women at all levels of our organization, and we work towards this goal every day.
