Are you a seasoned project coordinator in public health interested in a rewarding career with our Public Health Division? Then this is the right opportunity for you to join our team. Read on…..

Medical Care Development, Inc., (MCD) was founded in 1966 as an US‐based not‐for‐profit established to assist the State of Maine to bring higher quality health care to its underserved rural population. It now operates throughout the United States. In 1977 MCD became a global public health non-profit with the founding and addition of an international division, Medical Care Development International (MCDI). MCDI was founded with the belief that MCD’s successful approach to health systems development in the rural United States could be adapted to meet the needs of developing nations. MCDI uses practical, evidence‐based and high‐impact approaches to strengthen health systems in developing countries and to improve the health of vulnerable populations overseas through integrated, sustainable and locally‐driven interventions. Since its inception, MCDI has implemented public health programs in over 40 developing countries. MCDI collaborates with donors, national governments, the private sector, health agencies, communities and local stakeholders to improve health and save lives in the following areas: infectious disease control and elimination, including notably malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, among others; maternal, neonatal and child health; and water, sanitation and hygiene.
