JOB DESCRIPTION

 

 

Title of Post: Neglected Tropical Diseases National Program Officer, South Sudan

Positions to be supervised: States and Counties NTD Program Officers, South Sudan

 

Summary:

The multiple burdens of different Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) in Southern Sudan are thought to be among the greatest in Africa. A total of 12 NTDs are endemic, many of whom have only benefit from intermittent control in response to reported outbreaks, supported by short-term donor funding. The need to implement and scale-up appropriate, cost-effective interventions is nowhere as apparent as in this post-conflict setting. The Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS) and the partner World Health Organization immediately recognized NTDs as major obstacles to be overcome to improve the health of its people. The Ministry of Health (MoH) has thus prioritized the control or elimination of some diseases (Onchocerciasis, Guinea worm and Trachoma), while expanding its resources to lead the control of Human African Trypanosomiasis (HAT) and Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL). Most recently, the MoH-GoSS has committed to the integrated control of NTDs using Preventive Chemotherapy (PCT) and complementary approaches, as recommended by the World Health Organization. This approach targets Soil-Transmitted Helminths (Ascariasis, Trichuriasis and Hookworm disease), Schistosomiasis, Lymphatic Filariasis (LF), Trachoma and Onchocerciasis through Mass Drug Administration (MDA). A National Integrated NTD Control Program Technical Committee was established in April 2008 and Stakeholders Meeting in May 2008 to coordinate this new approach. To realize this, establishment of department to oversee control of Endemic Tropical Diseases becomes imperative.

 

The Neglected Tropical Diseases National Program Officer will be based in Juba, South Sudan with frequent visits to the field.

  1. Assist in the implementation of the Control of Neglected Tropical Disease Project

Duty Station

Juba

Duration

Minimum 2 months, Maximum 3.5 months

Start Date:

January 2009

Deadline:

Saturday 6th December 2008

Focal Person:

Josephine Baruch-Tucker – UNDP Juba Office

Send responses to:

Ssa.juba@undp.org or Josephine Baruch-Tucker (UNDP Juba Office)

 

Background:

Civil society plays a major role in disaster management, conflict prevention, reconciliation and post-conflict reconstruction. The citizenry are much more than recipients of relief assistance, and must be viewed as such if development-focused relief and recovery programmes are to be successful. Civil society acts as an important channel for awareness raising and education, for the promotion of peace and reconciliation, and for the prevention and mitigation of conflicts and crises.

 

Empowerment of essential stakeholders in governance such as community-based organisations, volunteer groups and NGOs is important – empowered civil society can play an active role not only in planning and developing policies for risk reduction and sustainable recovery strategies, but also and particularly during implementation at the local level.

 

Despite many years of shrinking space for CSOs & CBOs in Sudan, to date there has not been an objective analytical documentation of the existing and untapped potential capabilities, positive role and position of the NGO and CBO sector in Southern Sudan. Such documentation is needed and should include assessment of the nature of relationships, of their effectiveness and efficiency, the quality of services delivered, and outreach modalities undertaken.

 

Therefore the objective of this project is to initiate a broad profile of all CSO/CBO and NGOs in Southern Sudan in order to understand their mandates, capacities, locations, main characteristics, working areas and status. This profile will provide the necessary broad information for designing the data collection system, and further support development of longer-term capacity building programming.

Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to establish an analysis based knowledge to inform the design of community driven development/recovery (CDD/CDR) type operations of the support community by profiling the capabilities of both national NGOs, CSOs/CBOs to the extent to which they are effective vehicles for:

 

1) Community level service delivery in the fields of relief and development activities such as infrastructure rehabilitation, flood/drought relief, recovery and mitigation, water & sanitation, livestock, fisheries, agriculture, micro-credit schemes, health and hygiene, school feeding programmes, vocational skills training, advocacy (child rights, gender & HIV/AIDS issues), etc.; and

2) Serve as support organizations in assisting local governments and the communities at large.

This information will provide a more coherant picture to the aid community of the status, scope and capacities of local organizations which can also serve policy and advocacy purposes.

Scope of work:

Through a rapid assessment across the 10 States of S.Sudan map and profile the capabilities of non-state actors (local organisations) so as to provide a picture of who’s out there, their capacities, and what support they may need. This work will consolidate as much as possible information available with other agencies, particularly the international NGOs and some UN agencies, but also update and add information where feasible.

 

 

Specific Responsibilities will include the following:

 

Mapping:

  1. To identify agencies (UN, INGOs, NNGOs, churches, GoSS, others) working with NNGOs/CBOs and providing capacity building/institutional strengthening support, and collect relevant information and data, at the State level
  2. To identify NNGOs/CBOs and other local organisations engaged in CDD at the State level,  and collect relevant information and data for understanding their mandate, activities, geographic scope, status, funding, etc.
  3. To establish and apply mechanisms to cross-check the accuracy of the information
  4. To maintain an accurate record of all collected information, and ensure it is entered correctly in the database on a timely basis.
  5. To examine and recommend options for sustaining, updating and disseminating the database information beyond this 4 month project

 

Capacity Profiling:

  1. To participate in analysing and identifying key areas of inquiry including NNGOs/CBOs capacity strengths and gaps, relationships, challenges, enabling environment issues, etc.
  2. To assist in the design and conduct of interviews focused on these areas of inquiry
  3. To organise, prepare, train, conduct and do the detailed reporting for Focus Group Discussions (FGD)
  4. Assist with the extracting from this qualitative data the information required for interpretation and analysis

 

Networking/Representation:

  1. Establish/use networks of representatives (NGO, GoSS, other) knowledgeable of the local actors and their activities at the State & County levels to consult for cross-checks and verification of information collected.
  2. To represent the project and UN-HABITAT in a positive, supportive and facilitative manner in all interactions with agencies, the GoSS, the communities and the public.
  3. To identify appropriate channels for feeding back outcomes of this project to those who participated and the broader community

Other:

  1. To participate in the development of strategies, plans, methods and means to monitor
  2. To prepare work plans and schedules in coordination with other team members to maximize economies of scale
  3. To maintain along with other team members standard files on all data collected and ensure these are properly labelled, maintained and accessible to all team members to use.
  4. To assist in organising meetings and workshops as planned. It is proposed to hold up to 4 workshops across the regions to review the outcomes of this project
  5. To organise all logistics, financial, administrative and personnel requirements in a coordinated manner with the team, and in accordance with UNDP and UN-HABITAT policies and procedures
  6. Any other responsibilities and tasks assigned by the Team Leader to fulfil the objectives of this project.
