Résumé du poste


Afghan mission is the oldest PUI mission, with first medical intervention launched in 1979 just after the Soviet Invasion.

Since then, the country has mostly been in conflict, with national armed groups and international forces, causing mass casualties and massive movements of population, within or out of the countries. In 2017, 438 000 people have been internally displaced (bringing the total number of displaced people to 1.7 million) and there has been an influx of more than 550 000 afghan returnees from Iran and Pakistan. This high number of returns is putting pressure on host communities that are already strained by the conflict.

The achievements realized by the international community following the post-2001 intervention are now jeopardized by the intensification of conflict and violence and fragile governance. Indeed, due to the increase of the attacks, casualties, displacements and consequently, of the acute needs, the United Nations reclassified Afghanistan conflict from a protracted one to an active one. Many armed groups (mainly Taliban, Islamic State…) are threatening the Government of Afghanistan, struggling to impose its vision of development, despite continuous extended military, financial and political support, nationally and internationally.

Insecurity, economic concerns, governance issues and increased pressure on the delivery of services are pushing many Afghans to risk their lives fleeing to Europe, as they see no future in Afghanistan. Afghan refugees represent the third largest refugee group worldwide and the second largest contingent of asylum seekers to the EU.

In this scenario, with elevated pressure on aid actors, the capacity to deliver aid to the most in need in remote areas is jeopardized. Access on field remains one of the biggest challenges in Afghanistan, especially in some provinces, including Nangarhar and Kunar. The humanitarian crisis is looming as actors are overstretched and resources oriented to other crises. A high capacity to deliver aid is then required in such a complex environment where humanitarian needs are huge.


The Area Deputy Field Coordinator for Programs ensures the smooth and qualitative implementation of PUI’s programs in Eastern Provinces of Afghanistan (Nangarhar, Laghman, Nuristan and Kunar Provinces). She/He is also responsible for representation on technical topics in meetings with humanitarian stakeholders at local level and in charge of proper reporting to the donors supporting the programs.
