Malaria Consortium Finance & Management Accountant - Jobs in South Sudan

Organisational background

Established in 2003, Malaria Consortium is one of the world’s leading non-profit organisations
specialising in the comprehensive prevention, control and treatment of malaria and other
communicable diseases among vulnerable and under privileged populations.

We increasingly find our work on malaria can be effectively integrated with other similar public health interventions for greater impact and therefore expanded our remit to include child health and neglected tropical disease
interventions.

We work in Africa and Asia with communities, governments, academic institutions, and local and
international organisations, to ensure effective delivery of services, which are supported by strong evidence.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment
  • Disease control and elimination
  • Systems strengthening
  • Research, monitoring and evaluation leading to best practice
  • Behaviour change communication
  • National and international advocacy and policy development

    Country and project background

    Malaria Consortium began operations in Sudan in 2005, training doctors in malaria case management
    and delivering LLINs to displaced people. By 2007, programme increased its activities in southern Sudan, supporting assessment, mapping and administration of NTDs.

    Based in Juba, the programme continued to support the National Malaria Control Programme and the new South Sudan government with their malaria policy documents and treatment guidelines.

    Malaria Consortium in South Sudan works with partners, including all levels of government, to improve the lives of all, especially the poorest and marginalised with greater focus on children below 5 years of age.
