UN Project Coordinator Jobs in Ethiopia

CCM (Comitato Collaborazione Medica) is an Italian NGO operating in Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan and Uganda, specialized in the implementation of health-related projects in both humanitarian and development contexts.

Over the past years, CCM has been engaged in Liben Zone of Somali Region of Ethiopia, partnering local authorities to enhance primary health care services, with particular focus on Mother and Child Health (MCH).

In January 2016, a 3-year initiative funded by the Italian Development Cooperation has been started, aiming at improving maternal and child health services and reproductive health services in Liben Zone (specifically in Filtu and Dekasuftu districts), by (i) supporting Primary Health Care Services in the catchment area and (ii) engaging local communities in the promotion of health seeking behaviors and in the dissemination of health and hygiene-related best practices.

Health Facilities have been adequately supplied and supervised and health staff trained in order children and women in reproductive age to have the opportunity to access quality care even in remote areas.

Community dialogue has been promoted through empowering community groups and women’s associations and through stimulating peer-to-peer education.

Targeted messages for dissemination through local media will be developed to reach out isolated communities.

The main project partner are Woreda Health Offices (WoHO) of Filtu and Dekasuftu, which proactive involvement in the project planning, implementation and supervision is key to sustainability purposes.
