    iCCM Manager

    Job from International Rescue Committee Closing date: 28 Nov 2016

    Description

    Background The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster.

    At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.

    The IRC began its health work in South Sudan in 1989, training health workers and making health services available to remote, underserved communities. With the signing of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement, the IRC began supporting the Government of South Sudan's efforts to establish health systems.

    Today, the IRC continues to work closely with the newly formed Republic of South Sudan in strengthening those systems.

    On December 16, 2013, heavy military exchanges occurred between rival SPLA factions in Juba (Central Equatoria State). The fighting and violence quickly spread to other states in South Sudan, trapping thousands of civilians in Unity, Lakes, Upper Nile, and Jonglei States in UN bases or makeshift IDP settlements. Despite the signing of a cessation of hostilities agreement, fighting has continued between Government and opposition forces, resulting in mass displacement.

    The security situation remains fragile and testing operational challenges abound. IRC operates in five of South Sudan's ten states with programming in several sectors, including health, nutrition, protection, water and sanitation, food security and livelihoods, as well as women's empowerment and gender-based violence.

    However, continued lack of resources, widespread poverty, and low literacy levels continue to challenge efforts to meet the basic needs of the South Sudanese people. It is estimated that only 25% of the population has access to any kind of health care services, 80% of which are provided by humanitarian and other non-governmental organizations.

    Scope of Work

    The overall goal of this project is to decrease child morbidity and mortality in Aweil East State and North County of former Northern Bahr el Ghazal State and Panyijar County of Unity State by training and equipping Community-Based Distributors (CBDs) to treat children under 5 for malaria, diarrhea, and pneumonia.

    Treating children in the first 24 hours of illness is key to ensuring their survival. By making treatment available close to home, the IRC has been able to significantly reduce child mortality in the communities we serve.

    The integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) Manager will be the focal point for all activities in the state of operation. The Manager will ensure quality program implementation, in accordance with national and international standards.

    S/he will identify and address gaps in iCCM services and will provide technical oversight to the iCCM Officers and field-based Boma health Supervisors (BHS) formerly known as (CBD Supervisors) in the area of CIMCI, with an emphasis on coaching national staff to build their capacity.

  • Support the Grants Coordinator in other key grants management, program development, monitoring and evaluation, communications and external relations activities as requested.

    End of Program Evaluation for Jonglei Food Security Program (South Sudan)- ReAdvertisement

    Job from Catholic Relief Services Closing date: 30 Sep 2016

    Catholic Relief Services (CRS) South Sudan seeks an independent third party to conduct a final evaluation for the USAID funded Jonglei Food Security Program (JFSP).

    The third party will be expected to apply mixed methods to assess the program’s achievements in terms of meeting changing needs in a dynamic context and to draw lessons from how the program was implemented and adapted.

    Due to the nature of the program context, primary data collection will be largely qualitative. The analysis of these data may be complemented by quantitative analyses of existing secondary data.

    Background

    JFSP has assisted project participants across nine counties in Jonglei State, South Sudan, with a package of interventions that were adjusted and implemented on the basis of regular needs assessments. JFSP was awarded as a three-year Title II development food assistance program (DFAP) in 2011.

    The program was undertaken by a consortium led by CRS in partnership with Save the Children International (SCI). USAID provided funding to JFSP under two awards; a Title II cooperative agreement (CA) with FFP and a second CA with USAID South Sudan Mission. The USAID Mission award ended in April 2015.

    The evaluation should consider all the nine JFSP target counties. Actual coverage within counties will depend on accessibility as determined by seasonality and security. The evaluation will be carried out at the end of the wet season in October 2016 with the final report submission by the end of January 2017.

    Objectives

  • The purpose of this evaluation is to learn from the JFSP experience of implementation and transitioning during the ongoing conflict. It will:
  • Examine JFSP’s use and application of monitoring processes to modify interventions effectively to meet the changing needs of the most vulnerable in the emergency phase;
  • Assess the accuracy of targeting of different beneficiary groups for appropriate emergency, recovery and resilience interventions that were simultaneously implemented in the same community, reaching those affected differently with the intervention most appropriate to their needs;
  • Assess how well the JFSP was able to ‘do no harm’ in the volatile and unpredictable environment;
  • Identify the actions that appear to have been more and less important to recovery, the protection of lives, livelihoods and resilience, and avoidance of doing harm in a sensitive and unstable situation;
  • Assess the relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of JFSP program strategies and interventions in achieving the intended project outcomes;
  • Assess the major challenges faced by the JFSP program and the ways in which these challenges were addressed;
  • Draw lessons on the transitions undergone by JFSP and results achieved in various implementation phases in order to inform future CRS and FFP programming.

    South Sudan - A Medical Coordinator

    Job from Première Urgence - Aide Médicale Internationale Closing date: 30 Sep 2016

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization.

    Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency.

    The association leads in average 190 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

    Find out about our history and values

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    In the Republic of South Sudan (SSD), more than 2 years of armed conflict have shattered the lives of millions of people. 2014 and 2015 have been years of continued instability due to unresolved border issues (between Sudan and South Sudan) and more importantly due to the civil war between SPLM/A forces loyal to President S. Kiir and SPLA-IO loyal to the rebel leader R. Machar, former vice-president.

    As of beginning of 2015; at least six out of 10 states are affected by armed violence, 1.66 million people have been displaced within the country, more than 640.000 refugees have fled out of the country, 3.9 million people are severely food insecure. Among IDPs, about 180.000 people have found refuge in UNMIS PoCs.

    All this needs to be considered in a very young country within which virtually the entire population has experienced forced displacement at least 1 time and hence where resilience is massively jeopardized.

    Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBeG) and Warrap states (where PUI is respectively operating since Feb. 2015 and planning to start operating in spring 2016) have been and still are largely neglected by humanitarian assistance because of their peripheral situation with regards to the armed conflict.

    However, a deterioration of the humanitarian context is to be noted and new displacements are still an option for the coming months.

    Our action in the field

    PUI has been operating in SSD since February 2015 and intends to extend the coverage of its current intervention. Addressing urgent needs of the most vulnerable in the targeted areas is planned through the following strategic objectives:

  • Improvement of the access to health care services
  • Reduction of the risks associated with food insecurity and undernutrition
  • Other strategic objectives will be considered in 2016 and will be used to define complementary pulti-sector needs assessemnts in the area where PUI is already operational but might also cover new counties/states depending on the evolution of the political/security situation. The sectors PUI would like to investigate are the following:

    Shelter & NFIs, Water Sanitation & Hygiene, Rehabilitation & Construction and Economic Recovery.

    In 2015 PUI has implemented the following projects in the county of Aweil North (NBeG State):

    Access to Primary Health Care services:

    A Primary Health Care Centre has been fully operational in Malual Centre Payam and associated to outreach and community based activities in an area where host community is massively vulnerable and where movements are stil recorded.

    The targeted area is virtually free from other type of humanitarian intervention. This project is funded by ECHO DG, will be extended in time in 2016 and shall be scaled-up in 2016 by the operating of a second PHCC in West Gogrial county (Warrap State).

    Food Security and Nutrition:

    Food distributions have targeted about 600 IDP households in Aweil North County as well as the families of patients discharged after having been treated for Acute Sever Undernutrition in the PHCC. This project has been supported by CIAA in 2015 and has also allowed distributing daily food parcels to patients and care-takers at the PHCC level. This project is supposed to be extended in 2016.

    The financial volume of operation in 2016 should be superior to the volume of 2015 thanks to the scaling up of operations in Warrap county.

    South Sudan - A Base Administrator in Pamat

    Job from Première Urgence - Aide Médicale Internationale Closing date: 30 Sep 2016

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency.

    The association leads in average 190 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

    Find out about our history and values

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    In the Republic of South Sudan (SSD), more than 2 years of armed conflict have shattered the lives of millions of people. 2014 and 2015 have been years of continued instability due to unresolved border issues (between Sudan and South Sudan) and more importantly due to the civil war between SPLM/A forces loyal to President S. Kiir and SPLA-IO loyal to the rebel leader R. Machar, former vice-president.

    As of beginning of 2015; at least six out of 10 states are affected by armed violence, 1.66 million people have been displaced within the country, more than 640.000 refugees have fled out of the country, 3.9 million people are severely food insecure.

    Among IDPs, about 180.000 people have found refuge in UNMIS PoCs. All this needs to be considered in a very young country within which virtually the entire population has experienced forced displacement at least 1 time and hence where resilience is massively jeopardized.

    Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBeG) and Warrap states (where PUI is respectively operating since Feb. 2015 and planning to start operating in spring 2016) have been and still are largely neglected by humanitarian assistance because of their peripheral situation with regards to the armed conflict. However, a deterioration of the humanitarian context is to be noted and new displacements are still an option for the coming months.

    Our action in the field

    PUI has been operating in SSD since February 2015 and intends to extend the coverage of its current intervention. Addressing urgent needs of the most vulnerable in the targeted areas is planned through the following strategic objectives:

    Improvement of the access to health care services Reduction of the risks associated with food insecurity and undernutrition Other strategic objectives will be considered in 2016 and will be used to define complementary pulti-sector needs assessemnts in the area where PUI is already operational but might also cover new counties/states depending on the evolution of the political/security situation.

    The sectors PUI would like to investigate are the following: Shelter & NFIs, Water Sanitation & Hygiene, Rehabilitation & Construction and Economic Recovery.

    In 2015 PUI has implemented the following projects in the county of Aweil North (NBeG State):

    Access to Primary Health Care services:

    A Primary Health Care Centre has been fully operational in Malual Centre Payam and associated to outreach and community based activities in an area where host community is massively vulnerable and where movements are stil recorded.

    The targeted area is virtually free from other type of humanitarian intervention. This project is funded by ECHO DG, will be extended in time in 2016 and shall be scaled-up in 2016 by the operating of a second PHCC in West Gogrial county (Warrap State).

    Food Security and Nutrition:

    Food distributions have targeted about 600 IDP households in Aweil North County as well as the families of patients discharged after having been treated for Acute Sever Undernutrition in the PHCC. This project has been supported by CIAA in 2015 and has also allowed distributing daily food parcels to patients and care-takers at the PHCC level. This project is supposed to be extended in 2016.

    The financial volume of operation in 2016 should be superior to the volume of 2015 thanks to the scaling up of operations in Warrap county.

    Maternal and Child Health Coordinator

    Job from International Rescue Committee Closing date: 04 Oct 2016

    Background:

    The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster.

    At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.

    On December 16, 2013, heavy military exchanges occurred between rival SPLA factions in Juba (Central Equatoria State). The fighting and violence quickly spread to other states in South Sudan, trapping thousands of civilians in Unity, Lakes, Upper Nile, and Jonglei States in UN bases or makeshift IDP settlements.

    Despite the signing of a cessation of hostilities agreement, fighting has continued between Government and opposition forces, resulting in mass displacement. The security situation remains fragile and testing operational challenges abound.

    IRC operates in five of South Sudan's ten states with programming in several sectors, including health, nutrition, protection, water and sanitation, food security and livelihoods, as well as women's empowerment and gender-based violence.

    Scope Of Work:

    The Child Health program which is implemented through Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) program aims to decrease the high child mortality and morbidity rates in South Sudan with the integrated management of childhood illnesses (malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia and acute malnutrition) by trained community-based health volunteers.

    Since 2005, the IRC has led the implementation of iCCM in South Sudan and now manages the largest iCCM program in the country with over 3000 community-based health volunteers.

    The Maternal Health program is implemented in an integrated approach with most of the interventions embedded as a component within the existing Health and Women's Protection and Empowerment (WPE) projects.

    The Reproductive Health (RH) interventions aims to reduce the high maternal and infant mortality rates and to support survivors of Gender Based Violence (GBV) to access necessary clinical care.

    The MCH Coordinator is responsible for overseeing the implementation of all of the IRC's Child Health and RH programming in South Sudan. S/he will provide technical and managerial leadership to the iCCM and RH programs and ensure all activities are of high quality.

    S/he will ensure program delivery is on time and on budget, as well as ensure special initiatives, expansion and scale up efforts align with Health specific and overall country program strategies.
