HealthNet TPO is a Dutch aid agency that works on health in areas disrupted by war or disasters. In these areas people are facing the immense task of rebuilding society while they suffer from poverty, diseases and the emotional consequences of conflict. We use ‘health’ as both a goal and means: the goal is to reach accessible health care for all. By working on that together with local communities we use ‘health’ as a means to bring people together and to restore mutual trust.
We are very proud of our colleague Dr. Farkhunda Ateel who won the prestigious Equator Prize for her previous work in Afghanistan.
For our head office in Amsterdam, HealthNetTPO is looking for a hands-on Project Management Assistant who will provide organisational and administrative support in the preparation and execution of projects.
