    A costed implementation plan and a system wide training manual for prevention and management of alcohol and drug abuse amongst learners in schools

    Background and Justification

    Alcohol and drug abuse is a global challenge, which has detrimental effects on the health, wealth and security of nations. It is estimated that around 28% of the population consumes alcohol, while cannabis use among adolescents range from 2% to 9% and among adults being 2%.

    The impact of alcohol and drug abuse is being felt in schools in South Africa and is compromising the quality of teaching and learning and the safety of learning spaces. It has been linked to academic difficulties, absenteeism, and drop-out from schooling thus impacting negatively on the attainment of quality basic education.

    It is also associated with a host of high risk behaviors including unprotected sex, crime and violence, traffic accidents, and mental and physical health problems. Injecting drug users also have an increased risk of contracting HIV and hepatitis through the sharing of needles

    It is for these reasons that the Department of Basic Education developed a National Strategy for the Prevention and Management of Alcohol and Drug Use amongst Learners in Schools. The strategy focuses largely on prevention because most learners do not abuse alcohol and drugs. However, it is also aimed at creating an enabling environment for those learners who have become addicted to alcohol and drugs to access treatment, care and support services.

    While the Strategy offers a broad framework that provides provinces and districts with an integrated and comprehensive approach to coordinate effort to address alcohol and drug use in schools, there is still however a need to develop an implementation plan to further guide provinces, districts and schools on how to execute their intervention on day to day basis

    As a result, the Department of Basic Education in partnership with UNICEF seeks to appoint a consultant to support the Department in the process of developing an implementation plan for the Prevention and Management of Alcohol and Drug Use amongst Learners in Schools.

    Scope of Work

    The main purpose of the CIP is to articulate national priorities for prevention and management of substance abuse in schools and to provide guidance at national, provincial district and local levels on evidence-based programming so as to achieve the expected results, as well as to identify the activities to be implemented and resources needed for implementation.

    In addition, the CIP is also intended to serve as a reference document for external development partners including donors and implementing agencies to understand and contribute to the national priorities.

    More specifically, the CIP will be used to:

    • Inform policy dialogue, planning and budgeting to strengthen management and prevention of substance abuse in schools as a priority area

    • Enable the various levels within the Department of Basic Education to develop their respective implementation plans with effective, efficient and actionable interventions/activities and timelines identified.

    • Empower Government and national partners to understand financial and technical support needs for prevention and management of alcohol and drug use in schools

    The CIP will be driven by the four strategic pillars as outline in the National Strategy for the prevention and management alcohol and drug use in schools and these are:

    • Enabling environment

    • Primarily prevention

    • Early detection

    • Treatment, care and support

    This assignment is part of the AWP Output 2.3: Increased number of schools that meet national quality standards for primary and secondary education based on 'safe and caring child-friendly schools' (SCCFS) model with a focus on at least quintile 1 and 2 schools.

    The specifc activity is around provision of support and capacity development of national, provincial, district officials and teachers towards strengthening the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of violence against children in schools as part of the implementation and monitoring of School Safety Framework which include the development of the implemetation plan on prevention and management of alcohol and drug use in schools

    Associate, Malaria (Mpumalanga)

    Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses.

    Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management.

    By working in association with governments and other NGO partners, CHAI is focused on large scale impact and, to date, CHAI has secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries. In addition, CHAI's teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective treatment and care.

    Malaria is one of the world's most significant causes of illness, death and lost economic productivity. Over the past decade, dramatic increases in donor funding have facilitated scale-up of effective interventions to prevent, diagnose, and treat malaria.

    This investment has successfully reduced the burden of malaria in many settings, and some countries have begun planning to eliminate it altogether. Yet these gains are fragile:

    global funding for malaria remains short of what is needed, the last decade's rapid growth in malaria financing appears to have halted, and resistance to insecticides and drugs threatens to set back efforts.

    CHAI's malaria program provides direct management and technical 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, 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.

    Summary of Position

    CHAI is seeking an Associate to support the Mpumalanga Provincial Department of Health's Malaria Program to achieve its malaria elimination goals. The Associate is expected to build strong relationships with the Provincial Department of Health and relevant country partners to develop and deliver upon evidence-based strategic plans to eliminate malaria from South Africa.

    Working in coordination with a decentralized CHAI team, the Associate provides dedicated operational support to the Provincial Department of Health to develop and execute effective high-impact programs.

    The position requires a highly motivated individual with outstanding analytic, problem solving, organizational, communication, and inter-personal skills. The candidate must be results oriented and independent, able to learn quickly, think strategically, and work effectively with a multi-cultural, multidisciplinary set of actors.

    CHAI places great value on the resourcefulness, tenacity, patience, humility, and high ethical standards of its staff.

    The Associate will support the Provincial Department of Health to:

  • Implement the National Malaria Elimination Strategy
  • Design, deploy and monitor focus-based intervention strategies to reduce malaria transmission
  • Deploy and monitor a DHI2-based national information system, with mobile tools for electronic data capture, to strengthen malaria surveillance and intervention planning
  • Implement collaborative initiatives to reduce cross-border malaria transmission
  • To achieve these objectives, the Associate must:
  • Provide day-to-day management and coordination support to the Provincial Department of Health
  • Identify key impediments to programmatic goals, devise targeted solutions to address them
  • Serve as a trusted advisor to the Provincial Department of Health, and stakeholders across government and non-governmental organizations
  • Undertake quantitative analyses to ensure appropriate coverage of interventions and resources, and progress against program goals
  • Develop tools and reference materials to support trainings, project management, monitoring and evaluation, and documentation of best practice
  • Draft presentations and reports for internal and external stakeholders
  • Work with CHAI's technical and global teams to develop and implement a coordinated program of support
  • Other responsibilities as needed
  • A Bachelor's degree plus 3-5 years of relevant work experience
  • Demonstrated and exceptional analytical, quantitative, and problem solving skills
  • High levels of proficiency in MS Office suite, particularly Excel and PowerPoint
  • Exceptional written and oral communication skills
  • Strong project management and organizational abilities, and detail-oriented approach
  • Ability to work independently and to manage own portfolio, balancing multiple tasks simultaneously
  • Patience and thoughtfulness even in high-pressure, stressful situations
  • Strong spoken and written English
  • Strong interpersonal skills, and proven ability to build and maintain strong relationships and influence stakeholders in a multicultural environment
  • Experience working in developing country context

    Advantages

  • Knowledge of malaria
  • Experience working in Mpumalanga
  • Fluency in siSwati, isiZulu, Xistonga, or isiNdebele
  • Experience working in management consulting, investment banking, or similar fast-paced, output-oriented environments

    Program Manager, Health Financing

    Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses.

    Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management. Unlike other implementers, CHAI does not operate stand-alone programs, nor does it build parallel health systems. Rather, CHAI works at the invitation and in support of governments.

    We focus on large-scale impact and have secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries, including cutting the costs of Viral Load laboratory tests by 50% in South Africa. CHAI's teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective health care.

    CHAI's health financing program is working with 10 governments to substantially and sustainably improve access to and utilization of essential health services for their populations.

    These governments are committed to increasing access, but face financial barriers to doing so. Financing for health is often insufficient, inefficiently spent and overly reliant on donor funding, which is not sustainable. Healthcare providers face stock-outs, ration services among patients and charge informal or formal user fees, which can act as a deterrent for patients, and particularly the poor, to seek care when needed.

    CHAI's approach includes working on a day to day basis with senior leadership and technical staff in Ministries of Health from the national to subnational level and at the facility level, in order to address financial barriers to access to health services.

    This includes supporting decisions to define health priorities, quantify resource gaps and secure resources for these priorities from donor and domestic sources, moving towards aid independence over time.

    In countries like Ethiopia and South Africa, CHAI is supporting roll-out of national health insurance. In countries like Malawi and Swaziland, CHAI is working with governments to improve how the available general revenue and donor resources are managed through existing financial management systems.

    CHAI is looking for a Program Manager with relevant experience in health financing, and ideally public financial management, to provide technical, strategic and management support to design and implementation of health financing programs in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, including Cameroon, Ethiopia, Malawi, Rwanda, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Myanmar.

    Please note that while the base location is flexible, this role will include up to 60-70% travel and will support multiple country locations in Africa and Asia.

    Placement is flexible per leadership approval with preference for CHAI program country in Southern and Eastern Africa.

    Job Requirements

    This is a challenging, fast-paced and rewarding position. The Program Manager will be part of a small global health financing team. He or she will work closely with in-country teams strengthening the ability of Ministries of Health to design and implement financial management and other health financing reforms.

    He or she will also contribute to shape CHAI's health financing strategy and emerging programs and priorities in areas such as health insurance and public financial management.

    Key responsibilities include the following:

  • Work with country teams to support partner governments on design and roll-out of health financing reforms and interventions to strengthen financial management;
  • Design and implement new tools and processes for improved budgeting or resource allocation and performance management, and support their institutionalization within governments;
  • Support country teams to undertake research and quantitative analyses and to present results to inform senior management decisions that improve efficiency, effectiveness, equity and sustainability of health financing;
  • Research methods used in the roll-out of health financing reforms in other countries and support adaptation of lessons to new contexts;
  • Collaborate and share work with global, regional and national stakeholders, through day to day work as well as presentations at key global fora;

  • Support monitoring and evaluation across CHAI country programs, as well as reporting to donors;
  • Contribute to knowledge management activities internally and disseminate methods and lessons learned through internal and external materials including peer-reviewed publications;
  • Other responsibilities as requested by manager.

    Qualifications include the following:

  • A minimum of 5-7+ years of experience in a relevant field (e.g. financial management, health economics, health insurance) in the public or private sector with increasing responsibilities;
  • Advanced degree in health economics, public health, public policy, economics or other relevant disciplines preferred; or Bachelor's degree with exceptional experience.

    For 50 years, we’ve been campaigning for human rights wherever justice, freedom and truth are denied. We’ve reshaped policies, challenged governments and taken corporations to task. In doing so, we’ve changed thousands of lives for the better. Join Amnesty at our new Secretariat office in Johannesburg and you will too.

    About The Role

    This is an exciting role where you’ll have a huge opportunity to make a difference – both to activism in Amnesty International (AI) and to young people across Africa. Coordinating the development and delivery of activism and youth strategies, plans and projects, you’ll inspire, empower and help mobilise a new generation of activists and ensure their active participation in a uniquely challenging human rights landscape.

    Part of that means running workshops to promote learning and grow campaigning skills. And we’ll also look to you to provide support and advice to our national teams and expertly grow their capacity and activist structures.

    So you’ll know exactly how to mobilise and develop this vital resource and have experience of growing a vibrant and active youth constituency. This will be something you can do fluently in both French and English. Beyond that, you’ll also be confident planning and managing multiple projects and show fine judgement when it comes to delivering training and communicating in a multicultural setting.
