Epidemiologist, Research Associate, West Africa , Senegal

Overview:

The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance. For more information, please visit: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org

CHAI’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.

In parts of West Africa, CHAI provides technical and managerial assistance to national malaria programs in order to accelerate policy changes, ensure sufficient supply commodities, generate demand among health providers and patients and ensure adequate monitoring and troubleshooting mechanisms are in place to track progress. In addition, CHAI is also supporting national malaria programs to identify the bottlenecks and potential solutions in surveillance systems, specifically to improve the collection, reporting, analysis and use of data for programmatic decision-making. Benin and Burkina Faso are the newest additions to CHAI’s portfolio in the region, where initial efforts will be focused on conducting country-specific surveillance landscaping assessments. Similar assessments are expected to be conducted in two additional countries and therefore a total of four countries across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Overview of Role:

Specific activities will include: desktop review of relevant policy, scientific and grey literature, qualitative assessments of surveillance system performance through interviews with key stakeholders at national and local level, as well as other relevant partners, designing and implementing health facility survey to quantify the performance of surveillance system, and epidemiological analysis of malaria surveillance, case management, entomological and intervention data and key malaria indicators.

The individual will report to the Technical advisor for East, Central, West Africa and work with team members across CHAI’s Global, Regional and Country Malaria Teams and will therefore need to possess strong communication and organizational skills. It is expected that the Research Associate will need to collaborate with government programs, academics and public health agencies to ensure CHAI’s work is complementary and not duplicative other ongoing efforts. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities including resourcefulness, tenacity, independence, patience, humility, and strong work ethic.

We do this without regards to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinion. Our seven principles guide our humanitarian work: humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality. The International Assistance department is responsible for all Netherlands Red Cross (NLRC) international support for victims of disasters and conflicts and for vulnerable people exposed to hazards. The Focus of the International Assistance department is on two main areas: Disaster Response and Community Resilience.

Country Representative, Central African Republic (CAR)

Position title: NLRC Country Representative - CAR
Duty station: Bangui
Time period: 1 year, with possible extension
Starting Date: As soon as possible
Status: Single posting/R&R

Purpose of the position

The Netherlands Red Cross (NLRC) is looking for a Country Representative who will:
- Safeguard, develop and implement the NLRC long term strategy and vision for CAR
- Maintain and further develop relationships with Red Cross Partners, Donors and other Stakeholders
- Lead the NLRC Country Team in CAR
- End responsible for all NLRC supported projects in CAR
- Be the project manager for the Response Preparedness Program (RPII)

The Netherlands Red Cross in Central African Republic

The NLRC supports the Central African Republic Red Cross (CAR RC) through a programmatic partnership, with longer term development assistance through two main projects: Response Preparedness funded by The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Future Generation project funded by the Dutch radio 3FM. The first project focuses on enhancing preparedness of the National Society CAR RC to better respond to future disasters with an aim of having by the end of April 2020 the impact of disasters vulnerable people in CAR reduced. The second project addresses the social cohesion theme with specific attention to youth. The overall aim of the 3FM project is by the end of 2018, 5,000 youth are more resilient to the consequences of conflict and able to shape their personal and economic development.In addition, NLRC supports the CAR RC with strengthening its capacities to effectively provide services to the most vulnerable communities and assists the partner in the coordination within the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and other stakeholders. The RP and Youth projects appear to run well, with tribute to NLRC international staff that operate in close tandem with their NS counterparts. A new project funded by The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs has just started and focusing on livelihoods and basic needs for the youth with an overall objective that by 2020, 5000 vulnerable youth are economically and socially integrated through economic empowerment, first aid trainings promoting peace due to trainings in 7 principles, Conflict management, social cohesion and SRH (including SGBV awareness). The Country Representative is also the end responsible for this project.

Netherlands Red Cross Response Preparedness Programme

In 2011 the 31st International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent was held. During this Conference the Netherlands government and NLRC agreed to support a selection of National Societies to provide more effective emergency response.[1] This resulted in the so-called ‘RP’ programme, a first full-fledged response preparedness programme implemented from 2012 till 2016 in 5 countries and fully funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA). NLRC intended to renew this commitment to strengthening disaster response preparedness and started preparations for a proposal in 2014, which was formally accepted for funding by July 2016. The programme (May 1st 2016 – April 30th 2020) fills a critical gap between current community based resilience and risk reduction programmes and international disaster response by focusing on strengthening national response capacity and linking it to regional and global capacity. It aims at enabling a better prepared response mechanism of the RCRC Movement partners and surrounding stakeholders in case disasters strike and therefore complements community-based resilience and DRR activities. For the Netherlands Red Cross the response preparedness programme contributes to an important part of the organization’s strategic focus on disaster management[2] as laid down in the paper ‘Towards 2020’. In the second phase of the Response Preparedness Programme (RP2), NLRC will contribute to improved Disaster Response Preparedness in four disaster and conflict prone countries, working closely with the National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in those countries-namely Central African Republic, Lebanon (including Palestinian Red Crescent branch in Lebanon), Mali and Zambia-, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) Secretariat, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre (RCCC) and the 510 data team of NLRC. RP2 covers core activities that lie at the heart of disaster preparedness of National Societies, but also aims to address capacities that strengthen and facilitate these. This means that RP2 not only focuses on the capacity of the involved National Societies (NS), but also on its specific position within the country’s broader disaster response preparedness mechanism. In addition RP2 will be contributing to global Red Cross and Red Crescent tools and guidelines on response preparedness through the IFRC Secretariat and the RCCC.
