Job description
 
This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

This rewarding role will train you up in a fast-growing charity that is helping improve access to medicines worldwide, saving lives and preventing avoidable suffering.  International Health Partners (IHP) supports people in hard-to-reach, vulnerable and disaster-hit communities to get the medicines they need, by coordinating the safe and responsible donation of long-dated medical products. We work with our strong network of global healthcare, logistics and NGO partners, to source and send treatments to where they are needed most, to help prevent the needless suffering caused by a lack of access to healthcare.  Our work is needed now more than ever. The global outbreak of COVID-19 has further highlighted the urgent need for improving access to medicines and for strengthening health systems.  In the last two years, IHP has sent over 20 million treatments to vulnerable communities around the world including places such as Yemen, Lebanon, South Sudan and Haiti.  One of our in country partners recently described us as 'small but mighty'.

The medicines provided range from life saving antibiotics to treatments for chronic health conditions like diabetes and hypertension - where an interruption in access to daily medicines can cause severe health complications and even death. We are acting on key global health challenges including helping to reduce maternal and child mortality, tackling neglected tropical diseases, and enabling people to manage non-communicable diseases effectively – thus preventing avoidable disabilities.

Our logistics team keep our inventory of donated medicines up to date and arrange the shipments of these vital medicines all around the world.  This means entering and maintaining data on systems, preparing shipping documentation and liaising with pharmaceutical companies and our overseas NGO partners who receive the medicines for disaster response and health programmes.
