ABOUT US
Action Against Hunger (AAH) is an international NGO(Paris, New York, London, Toronto, Madrid and New Delhi)
committed to ending world hunger. For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, we have been working to fight
undernutrition and support communities affected by crisis across the globe. In 2017, we reached more than 20
million people worldwide. We carry out innovative, lifesaving and development programmes in nutrition and health
(including mental health), WASH, disaster risk reduction and management, food security and livelihood, and
advocacy.
Action Against Hunger has been working in Liberia since 1991 with the purpose to respond to the needs of the most
vulnerable people, at first during the emergencies and then in a more development setting, until the 2014 Ebola
outbreak and the emergency it generated in the country. AAH interventions in Liberia aim at improving the nutrition
security of the population, with particular focus on children under-five and pregnant and lactating women. AAH
aims at doing so by implementing multi-sectorial programs, which encompass direct nutrition intervention and
prevention activities to address the underlining causes of undernutrition, i.e. poor health, food insecurity, poor
care practices, and poor access to water and sanitation. AAH also has an integrated advocacy strategy in the mission
that cuts across all the sectors.

Liberia. The position will be based in the Field with frequent travel to the program areas.

The Field Coordinator represents the organization at regional level including general meetings with donors,
humanitarian actors, local authorities, protocol meetings, security meetings, as well as sector program meetings
when requested by the mission coordination.
The Field Coordinator is responsible for the district security management and ensures the security of staff,
