  • Kenya: Regional Global Health Advisor


    Organization: American Refugee Committee International
    Country: Kenya
    Closing date: 06 Oct 2017

    Regional Global Health Advisor | Nairobi

    Reports to ARC Senior Global Health Advisor | Full time | October 2017

    Who we are

    American Refugee Committee is and always has been about amazing global citizens taking action to change our world. Today, we’re facing challenging global humanitarian crises that require 21st Century solutions. But we’ve found that co-creating together with impassioned, dedicated people, limited only by their own imaginations, remains the key to designing new solutions that resonate. We still believe that ARC should exist, first and foremost, as a platform for realizing the goodwill of everyday people – people from Sweden to Somalia, Minnesota to Malaysia, Uganda to the U.S.

    We’ve found that something incredible will result as long as we begin the journey with amazing people, agree on a destination and move together towards it transparently and open to possibility.

    If you are looking for a job, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a place where you can unleash your creativity, leverage your experience and that of those around you, we invite you to join us.

    What you will do as Regional Global Health Advisor

    As ARC’s regional health guru, you will use your background in public health and strong skills in human-centered design to help us achieve a fundamentallydifferent model of humanitarian health programming. We are reimagining humanitarianism for the 21st century, and we need your help in transforming our health programming to be radically patient-focused.

    We have a unique approach to working with those we serve. Providing basic services just isn’t our style. Our customers want more and you will co-create with an enthusiastic team that will support you with resources and inspiration in order to ensure the highest quality services, best performing staff, and a strong reputation.

    About the Role

    • You understand how to continually improve the household-to-hospital continuum of care in humanitarian settings, as well as how to build the capacity of country teams to design and deliver patient-centered health programs. Much of your day will be spent engaging with our country health teams electronically or in person to design health programs and implement patient feedback mechanisms to ensure high patient satisfaction and improve the quality of health services. You’re not scared of constantly needing to adjust priorities, working under pressure, and engaging staff in new ways of thinking and doing.
    • You recognize that humanitarian budgets are shrinking while the number of displaced globally is growing—and that requires a new way of addressing persistent problems. It’s going to be your job to make sure that ARC’s model of health programming is higher quality and more relevant, human, and impactful specifically because it has been designed for the end-user—the patient. You’re not intimidated by co-creating with others within and outside the health sector to ensure that ARC’s health services and programming are always designed with the patient in mind, and that our quality is always a cut above the rest.
    • We believe strategy is a team sport. You’ll work closely with the HQ-based Senior Global Health Advisor and field-based Senior Health Coordinators to support on-going quality improvement processes and to facilitate an engaging program design process.

    About You

    • You are an exceptional mentor, with the ability to motivate senior healthleads and other members of the country health teams to initiate and follow through on quality improvement processes, and to design health programs and services using HCD methodology.
    • You embrace entrepreneurial approaches; have an infectious enthusiasm for public health; and are devoted to refugees, internally displaced people, migrants, and communities affected by or recovering from conflict and emergency.
    • This isn’t your first time around the block—as such, you’ve had experience in an advisory role for an INGO, social enterprise, or donor,and you’ve used human-centered design approaches to develop and implement health innovations in humanitarian and/or developing country settings.
    • You enjoy being involved in health program design, managing quality improvement processes, and are talented at managing expectations and your own time. You love co-creating across teams and are personable, helpful, and incredibly organized.
    • You work well with a lot of freedom and do you best work in a culture that does the doable with whatever resources we have.
    • You have an optimistic core and are joyful to the people you serve and work beside.
    • You embrace ambiguity and have passion to invigorate the current state of humanitarian health programming and challenge the status quo.
    • You deliver your work generously and take ownership of everything that lands in your lap.

    Who You’ll Work With

    Heather Howard (HQ) leads our global health programming to achieve patient-centered program design, the highest quality services, best performing staff, and a strong reputation.

    Field Health/Nutrition Coordinators who lead the health programs in individual countries and are integral to the program design process and quality improvement initiatives.

    Global Support Department (HQ) provides strategic guidance and operational support to individual country programs.

    Benefits

    Organization: ReliefWeb
    Country: United States of America
    Closing date: 28 Sep 2017

    Special Notice

    Notes: This is a temporary post open to internal and external candidates through 31 December 2017, subject to extension. All posts are subject to availability of funding.

    • A current staff member who holds a fixed-term, permanent or continuing appointment may apply for temporary positions no more than one level above his or her current grade. However, a current staff member who holds an appointment at the G-6 or G-7 level may also apply to temporary positions in the Professional category up to and including the P-3 level, subject to meeting all eligibility and other requirements for the position. A staff member holding a temporary appointment shall be regarded as an external candidate when applying for other positions, and may apply for other temporary positions at any level, subject to section 5.7 below and staff rule 4.16 (b) (ii). Therefore, a staff member holding a temporary appointment in the General Service or related categories may only apply to positions within those categories. For full information on eligibility requirements, please refer to section 5 of ST/AI/2010/4Rev.1 on Temporary Appointments. In its resolution 66/234, the General Assembly further “stressed that the Secretary-General should not recur to the practice of temporarily filling posts in the Professional and higher categories with General Service staff members who have not passed the General Service to Professional category examination other than on an exceptional basis, and requests the Secretary-General to ensure that temporary occupation of such posts by the General Service staff shall not exceed a period of one year, effective 1 January 2013…” Consequently, eligible candidates in the General Service or related categories for temporary job openings in the Professional category that have not passed the competitive examination may be selected only on an exceptional basis endorsed by the Office of Human Resources Management where no other suitable candidate could be identified.

    • Upon separation from service, including, but not limited to, expiration or termination of, or resignation from, a fixed-term, continuing or permanent appointment, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment on the basis of a temporary appointment for a period of 31 days following the separation. In the case of separation from service on retirement, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment for a period of three months following the separation. This equally applies, mutatis mutandis, with respect to a former or current staff member who has held or holds an appointment in another entity applying the United Nations Staff Regulations and Rules and who applies for a temporary position with the Secretariat.

    • Retirees above the mandatory age of separation who wish to be considered for the current temporary job opening must indicate the reason for their last separation as "retirement." Such retirees shall not be employed by the Organization, unless (a) the operational requirements of the Organization cannot be met by staff members who are qualified and available to perform the required functions; and (b) the proposed employment would not adversely affect the career development or redeployment opportunities of other staff members and represents both a cost-effective and operationally sound solution to meet the needs of the service.

    • Subject to the funding source of the position, this temporary job opening may be limited to candidates based at the duty station.

    • While this temporary assignment may provide the successful applicant with an opportunity to gain new work experience, the selection for this position is for a limited period and has no bearing on the future incumbency of the post. An external candidate selected for this position is bound by the prevailing condition of the staff selection system under ST/AI/2010/3, as amended, and ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1. A staff member holding a temporary appointment who is recruited in the Professional and above categories on a temporary appointment, and placed on a position authorized for one year or longer may not apply for or be reappointed to his/her current position within six months of the end of his/her current service. This provision does not apply to staff members holding temporary appointments and placed on positions authorized for one year or more in duty stations authorized for peacekeeping operations or special political missions.

    • The expression “Internal candidates”, shall mean staff members who have been recruited after a competitive examination under staff rule 4.16 or after the advice of a central review body under staff rule 4.15.

    • Please note that candidates will be required to meet the requirements of Article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter as well as the requirements of the position. The United Nations is committed to the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity for all its human resources, including but not limited to respect for international human rights and humanitarian law. Candidates may be subject to screening against these standards, including but not limited to whether they have committed, or are alleged to have committed criminal offences and/or violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law.

    • For information on special post allowance, please refer to ST/AI/1999/17. For more details on the administration of temporary appointments please refer to ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1.

    • The Staff Regulations, Staff Rules and administrative issuances governing staff appointments can be viewed at: http://www.un.org/hr_handbook/English

    • Staff members of the United Nations common system organizations who will reach the mandatory age of separation or retirement within the duration of the current temporary need period are not eligible to apply.

    • Staff members are not eligible to apply for the current temporary job opening if they are unable to serve the specified duration of temporary need before reaching the mandatory age of separation.

The IAS Conference on HIV Science brings together a broad cross section of HIV professionals and features the latest HIV science, with a focus on implementation – moving scientific advances into practice.

    In addition, the IAS advocates for urgent action to reduce the global impact of HIV, including increased investment in HIV cure research; optimizing treatment and care for infants, children and adolescents with HIV in resource-limited settings; preventing and treating HIV-related co-infections; and expanding access to prevention, treatment and care for key populations at higher risk for HIV – such as men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers and transgender individuals – including protecting their human rights by combatting punitive laws and discriminatory policies.

  • Uganda: Consultancy for GOAL Micro, Small and Medium Microenterprises (MSME) Private Sector Partner Engagement Toolkit (PSET) Adaptation for DYNAMIC Uganda


    Organization: GOAL
    Country: Uganda
    Closing date: 29 Sep 2017

    GOAL is an international humanitarian agency, currently operating in 13 countries worldwide, dedicated to alleviating the suffering of the poorest of the poor. We are a non-denominational, non-governmental and non-political organisation. For more information on GOAL and its operations please visit www.goalglobal.org.

    GOAL has been working in Uganda since 1979, The GOAL Uganda country programme focuses on two of GOAL’s three strategic sectors: health (including WASH and health accountability programming) and livelihoods. GOAL Uganda mainstreams HIV, gender, and child protection across all programming. GOAL works on a district focused approach, and uses a mixture of direct implementation and partnerships with local civil society organisations, private sector partners, and district local governments to give effect to our mission. GOAL Uganda is funded by a number of donors, including DFID, Irish Aid, charity: water, Bank of Ireland, FAO, MCF and GOAL Global.

    Introduction

    DYNAMIC (Driving Youth-led New Agribusiness and Microenterprise) is funded by Mastercard Foundation. The project targets 125,000 youth, aged 15 – 24 years in the agriculture sector and runs from 2015 to 2020. DYNAMIC is a consortium of four organisations: GOAL (lead agency); Mercy Corps (market development and financial inclusion in five of nine target districts (GOAL covers the rest); Restless Development (youth engagement and life skills), and (VSO leads on skills and learning). GOAL is the grant holder and leads on the overall monitoring, evaluation and learning system. DYNAMIC’s approach is to work through private sector actor (PSA) partnerships to create systemic change which will enable youth to engage profitably with opportunities along multiple agricultural value chains.

    Background

    Identifying and entering into PSA partnerships which create sustainable and lasting benefit for economically marginalised youth is central to DYNAMIC’s approach. As such, the systems within GOAL which facilitate this process of partner ‘on-boarding’ are critical. Partner on boarding is informed by the opportunities identified in project research, followed by the identification and selection of partners with the requisite ‘will and skill’, co-design of shared value proposition, due diligence and agreement on milestones and payments.

    To guide and support its work with private sector partners, GOAL first piloted and more recently revised MSME Private Sector Partner Engagement Toolkit for its programs globally. The piloted version of the GOAL MSME toolkit influenced the development of a separate PSET by GOAL Uganda and its DYNAMIC consortium implementing partners for use with the DYNAMIC program. The recently revised GOAL MSME Private Sector Partner Toolkit in turn incorporates elements of the DYNAMIC PSET. The GOAL MSME toolkit now needs to be adapted to meet the specific needs and objectives of the DYNAMIC program in Uganda and its consortium partners. The final DYNAMIC PSET should streamline and ease the partner on-boarding process.

    Scope of Consultancy

    The Consultant will work collaboratively with the GOAL team and the DYNAMIC consortium partners to adapt the GOAL MSME toolkit for the DYNAMIC program. The adapted DYNAMIC PSET will streamline processes to maximize the program team’s ability to efficiently and effectively achieve DYNAMIC program objectives, considering its consortium structure, and provisions that have already been approved by the funding partner, Mastercard Foundation.

    In addition to a revised DYNAMIC PSET, the Consultant will also prepare a Presentation (PowerPoint, Prezi, or other innovative presentation methods) highlighting the key elements of the adapted DYNAMIC PSET. The presentation should present information in a concise and easily understandable manner, utilising visual representation as much as possible for ease of understanding across a broad audience. The presentation should highlight the ways in which the adapted toolkit differs from the GOAL MSME toolkit, and make recommendations for any new channels of decision-making or information management within GOAL and across the DYNAMIC consortium, that will help improve the efficiency of program implementation.

    Finally, the consultant will develop orientation/ training materials for the broader GOAL team orientation to the revised DYNAMIC PSET.

    In summary, the Consultant is expected to:

    1. Present for agreement a schedule of activity timeline/ workplan (0.5 day)

    2. Conduct a desk-based review of the GOAL MSME toolkit, (discussion with GOAL HQ Markets Advisor) and the existing Mastercard-approved DYNAMIC PSET (3 days)

    3. Desk review of GOAL and consortium partner systems (procurement, sub-awards, other) and hold individual meetings with GOAL HQ Head of Procurement and Logistics), GOAL Uganda SMT members, the DYNAMIC PD and other key consortium partner staff members as necessary (3 days)

    4. Hold meetings with key DYNAMIC program and consortium partner staff members (2 days)

    5. Adapt and share first and second drafts of the revised DYNAMIC PSET and recommendations for embedding any new decision-making channels and information flows for comment (4 days)

    6. Incorporate reviewer inputs and present final draft adapted DYNAMIC PSET (4 days)

    7. Develop and share up to three drafts of an innovative presentation (2 days)

    8. Develop and share up to three drafts of training tools and materials for orientation to the new DYNAMIC PSET (2 days)

    9. Conduct a training of trainers to support DYNAMIC staff rollout and utilization of the adapted PSET (3 days)

    10. Compile summary end report (0.5 day)

    Total anticipated number of days: 24 days

  • Somalia: Development of a position paper on Inclusion with focus on Children with Disability (CWD)


    Organization: Save the Children
    Country: Somalia
    Closing date: 06 Oct 2017

    1. Background

    Save the Children International (SCI) has been implementing Education projects in Puntland, Somaliland and South-Central regions of Somalia for over 20 years. SCI continues to reach out to deprived and marginalized children including children with disabilities to promote access to good quality basic education and learning. Apparently, it is difficult to talk of quality education without underlining, access, equity and inclusion in education. Although there are no comprehensive statistical data on prevalence of disabilities in the Somalia, the ongoing civil strife, insecurity, lack of awareness and poverty are some of the contributing factors to disability. Gross and net enrolment rates in primary and secondary schools in Somalia remain low with children with disability (CWD) among the most affected. Within schools, CWD continues to be a barrier to education. The barriers include limited access to schools, infrastructure, exclusion, discrimination and violence. The existing education system is unable to meet the learning needs of CWD in and out of school. This undermines their opportunity to achieve their full potential, and has far-reaching consequences for their future and for society as a whole. Reasons behind exclusion from and within the education vary with geographical location.

    In response to this plight of CWDs, SCI through the NORAD Framework Programme seeks to increase the participation and access to education by marginalized children including children with mild disabilities. As part of this project, SCI is seeking a consultant to systematically assess factors hindering their enrolment and take relevant measures by involving relevant stakeholders. To further, promote inclusive education SCI also seeks to assess root cause of discrimination and take appropriate advocacy measures aimed at changing the prevailing practices and to increase participation of CWD in education programmes.

    c. Are there any discriminatory practices and attitudes towards children with disabilities enrolled in schools?

    d. What steps should SCI take to enhance inclusive education?

    3. Methodology

    The study will adopt mixed qualitative and quantitative approach to gather information on the scope of inclusive education in the study areas. In both approaches, a purposive sampling scheme will be followed. The following methods of data collection will be applied in this research

    Survey: This will involve one-to-one interview of CWD both in schools and out of school. Data in the survey will include perception of CWDs of the school environment, school attendance, reasons for school absenteeism or school non-enrollment and challenges experienced both in and out school.

    Observation and secondary data: Observing school physical structures and learning materials if meets the needs of CWDs, verify from school records attendance, enrollment of children and performance of CWD vis-à-vis other students. The consultant will also review any other secondary literature and reports on CWD within the country including national/federal laws and policies.

    Key Informant Interviews: This will enlist information on their factors behind exclusion of CWD in schools and suggestions of way forward to attain inclusive education. The interviewees will be identified from each of the study regions. The key informants will include but not limited to teachers, ministry of education officials, Office of the Puntland Human Rights Defender (OPHRD), MOWDAFA, MWHRD, Health, Disability Peoples Organizations and other non-state actors working in areas of CWDs.

  • Kenya: Senior Software Developer (International Consultant)


    Organization: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
    Country: Kenya
    Closing date: 29 Sep 2017

    1. General Background of Software Project

    The Software project allows refugees to access to information in the personal files and to request for appointments for services that they require from UNHCR. Having an automated and systematic way of accessing information and services complements the existing processes by ensuring that information is available to the Person of Concern when they need it without having any other interaction. In addition to the information, the system will run a scheduling system for appointments based on the next-available-slot mechanism.

    The system needs to be set up and operated in the Local Area Network environment of UNHCR which is managed on Windows Platforms. The Kiosk ‘booths’ front-ends will be operated from remote Field Posts each of which have a Local Area Network connected to the main office over a Microwave Link where the Data sources and Core Application will be established.

    C # or Python Programming Languages are preferred Programming Languages, and it is an absolute requirement that the incumbent be proficient in either of them, as well as SQL Database Programming and JavaScript proficiency. The Software source-code must be left open and fully owned by UNHCR upon commissioning of the System and handover, which also includes any libraries and additional components that form part of the System.

    The project lifecycle requires that the development process be conducted in Agile Software Development method emphasizing frequent communication, change management, follow-ups and feedback, with each minor version for Beta testing being delivered in two-week intervals. UNHCR needs to have the first major release version (RC 1) of The System delivered by the incumbent by end October.

    Software Development duties and responsibilities

    The System to be developed will need to integrate with two existing systems that are already established by UNHCR that is, the Biometrics Information Management System and an SQL Server, both of which are internal to UNHCR.

    1.0 Integration with Existing UNHCR Systems

    (a.) The UNHCR Biometrics Information Management System, BIMS.

    The Biometrics Information Management System, or rather, ‘BIMS’ is the official System of UNHCR for identity of Persons of Concern. It is a System that integrates with the main Database to identify each Person of Concern registered in the Database using an Iris scan.

    The System to be built must integrate with the BIMS API on an as-is basis for reading Biometric input from the iris, authenticating, identifying the iris record and authorising Person of Concern users into the System.

    Experience in working with or implementing REST APIs as well as development of APIs is fundamental.

    (b.) SQL Database Server

    The Synchronisation Database is a Middleware SQL Database that populates itself with selected fields from the main Database – only the fields that need to be presented to the user containing basic information regarding the records of respective Persons of Concern as stored in the main Database.

    Expertise in SQL Database Programming is a fundamental requirement for the development of the System.

    2.0 Integration with SMS Gateways

    One of the key features in Scheduling of within The System is the SMS dispatch over a REST API. This dispatch is triggered whenever an appointment is successfully processed and whenever a previously scheduled appointment is re-scheduled.

    The System has to be designed to integrate with REST APIs of SMS Gateways and in such a way as to be easy to change Service Providers of the SMS Gateway services in the future with minimal maintenance downtime or rewriting of code.

    Past experience with REST API integrations and development of APIs is a fundamental requirement for the development of the System.

    3.0 Building on Customizable Packages

    The project requirements can be satisfied by using an existing Software package for scheduling that is customizable to the extent that, and provided that, it fulfils all of the business requirements in both functional and non-functional requirements, and that the Software package code-base is written in C# or Python Programming Language.

    In such, the Scheduling part of the System should not need to be written from scratch. It can be customized from an existing package which the incumbent Developer is encouraged to select and make part of the Software development.

    Either way, the Software end-product must be customizable, building on modules that extend the functionalities easily and seamlessly without having to re-write extensive portions of code in adding a new feature.

    4.0 Version Control

    Because of the nature of the Software development lifecycle, and the Agile approach in the development process flow which emphasizes frequent communication and highly flexible development able to adapt to changes quicker and much easier, the incumbent Developer is encouraged to use GitHub for version control.

    Version control for the Agile processes and change communication must be held with high importance throughout the development lifecycle.

    The GitHub instance must be secured with a password and libraries, including clones, must not be available publicly.

    5.0 Unit Testing

    During the development lifecycle, Unit testing for key features and modules will be conducted by UNHCR together with the incumbent Senior Software Developer. The Agile methodology shall allow both parties to manage change requests and corresponding follow-ups on statuses of, (a.) the features defined by the functional and non-functional requirements, and, (b.) change requests.

    1. Desired Skills and Experience

    1. Proficiency in C# or Python Programming Languages is a fundamental requirement.
    2. Proficiency in SQL Database Programming and JavaScript.

    3. Experience in working with REST API – SMS gateway

    4. Development experience with Systems for scheduling appointments and/or CRM Software Programs.

    5. Experience with Modular Mobile-First Designs focusing on low System-resource usage.

    6. 15 years of Software Development

    7. Fluency in English, both verbal and written.

    2. Employment Modality

    The successful candidate will be hired through an individual consultancy contract. This consultancy does not necessarily require full time presence in Kenya. The successful candidate can work from home but will be required to travel to Nairobi and Kakuma during different phases of the project. The successful candidate will be offered 6 months contract with possibility of extension.

  • Voluntary member for the Fleming Fund Technical Advisory Group


    Organization: Government of the United Kingdom
    Closing date: 20 Oct 2017

    Call for expressions of interest

    The UK Department of Health is seeking voluntary members for a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for the Fleming Fund programme.

    The aim of the Fleming Fund is to improve laboratory capacity and diagnosis as well as data and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in low and middle income countries (LIMCs) through a One Health approach.

    This approach spans work across the human, veterinary, environment and development sectors. With the right data in place not only is there a better chance that AMR becomes a part of national health policy planning with targeted investments where needed, but specific actions can be taken to lessen the impact of AMR on population health.

    The TAG will support the Department of Health in its leadership of the Fleming Fund, the largest global project designed specifically to address the global threat of AMR. The Fund will ultimately support the development of national actions to tackle AMR in LMICs. The O’Neill report (2016) estimated that if left unchecked, drug-resistant infections will kill 10 million people globally a year by 2050.

    The Department of Health wishes to establish this advisory group to support the implementation of the fund, until 2021-2022. This group will consist of no more than 20 members, who will be expected to provide up to a maximum of 5 days’ worth of support annually.

    The Department wishes to draw on a range of expertise relevant to all aspects of implementation of the Fleming Fund, and prospective members will need to have significant experience and relevant qualifications within one or more of the following disciplines:

    1. Antimicrobial resistance;

    2. Agricultural health;

    3. Animal health including veterinary microbiology;

    4. Antimicrobial use, including antibiotic stewardship;

    5. Clinical infectious disease and microbiology;

    6. Data usage for evidence based decision making;

    7. Project evaluation for international projects;

    8. Health economics;

    9. Health policy planning in developing countries;

    10. Health system strengthening in LMICs;

    11. Health workforce development;

    12. Laboratory capacity building;

    13. Laboratory microbiology including quality control and assurance;

    14. Medicine policy and regulation, including quality of medicines;

    15. Infectious disease surveillance with experience in LMICs.

  • Liberia: Volunteer, Resource Mobilization Officer (3 Months)


    Organization: Clinton Health Access Initiative
    Country: Liberia
    Closing date: 15 Oct 2017

    Founded in 2002, by President William J. Clinton and Ira C. Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives, reducing the burden of disease and strengthening integrated health systems in the developing world.

    Liberia Office Overview:

    In 2006, CHAI was the first international NGO to help Liberia's government rebuild after a decade-long Civil War in Liberia had killed an estimated 270,000 people, decimated the nation's health infrastructure and hindered the country's ability to deliver vital health and social services. The partnership between Liberia's Ministry of Health (MOH) and CHAI evolved from being HIV specific to addressing key healthcare challenges ranging from supply chain management, health workforce, and health financing, across various vertical programs including HIV, Maternal and Neonatal Health and Malaria. To date the CHAI Liberia office has helped the government achieve a nine-fold increase in HIV care and treatment and more than doubled access to a basic package of health care services.

    During the 2014-2015 Ebola Virus Disease Outbreak in West Africa, CHAI Liberia played a prominent role supporting the MOH with case management, health worker training and supply chain logistics. During the outbreak, CHAI also supported an assessment of Liberia's chronic health workforce shortage to inform the country's post-Ebola strategy aimed at building a resilient health system. The Ministry developed the Health Workforce Program: a seven year, comprehensive intervention aimed at scaling up training of physicians, nurses, midwives, health managers and community health assistants while, also, improving the quality of education provided. This became Liberia's top post-Ebola priority, with program activities launching in 2016. CHAI serves as the Contract Management partner on the project; all of CHAI Liberia's programmatic staff is dedicated to supporting the government's successful implementation of the Health Workforce Program. The Health Workforce Program is currently funded for the first two years of the seven year intervention.

    Description of Volunteer Position:

    CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual to support resource mobilization and advocacy efforts for the Liberia Health Workforce Program. The individual will work closely with leadership at the Ministry of Health and the CHAI Director of Health Workforce to develop advocacy materials, funding proposals and documents, and management of prospective donors and implementing partners.

    • Working closely with members of the MOH Health Financing Unit to synthesize costing information in a suitable format to share with prospective donors;

    • Developing, reviewing, editing, and conducting quality checks of all final proposal materials;

    • Managing the formal submission and relevant follow-up work to partners with all program proposals and materials;

    • Where appropriate, facilitate communication and relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders including those at the Ministry of Health, prospective donors, and current implementing partners in Liberia.

    • Excellent written and oral communication skills, and a track record of developing high-quality and professional materials to be shared externally;

    • Excellent diplomacy skills, work ethic, and flexibility;

    • Highly motivated, independent, dynamic and entrepreneurial thinker with strong managerial experience and interpersonal skills;
