講演題目 The work of Médecins du Monde (Doctors of the World): An NGO that provides medical care for vulnerable people all over the world
講演要旨
Ms. Prune Helfter, the General Manager of Médecins du Monde Japon, will speak about her international humanitarian aid organization whose volunteers provide medical care for vulnerable people all over the world. She graduated from the Paris Institute of Political Science, Essec Business School and the National Institute of Oriental Languages and Civilizations. She has a PhD in Economics and is also a former research student at Kyoto University.

As Doctors of the World serves culturally diverse populations around the world, they face challenges presented by the sociocultural differences among those groups and in the teams implementing the projects, who are themselves multicultural, made up of expatriated volunteers as well as local staff. How can these cultural factors be dealt with in the humanitarian field in order to maximise the efficiency of the projects and the benefits for the targeted population?  Ms. Helfter will speak about how Doctors of the World has been struggling to address these issues.
