MSF FB page in Arabic

Project and Context

The Qayyarah mental health activity is based within MSF’s general hospital in Qayyarah.

The city of Qayyarah is in Ninewah Governorate. It is situated in northern Iraq on the Tigris River, about 60km south of the city of Mosul.

The population of Qayyarah experienced approximately two years of control by the Islamic State organisation between mid-2014 and 2016. Toward the end of 2016 the Iraqi army re-took the city. The armed conflict resulted in damage and destruction of significant parts to the city and surrounding infrastructure. Because of armed conflict during this time and in the subsequent year, more than 250,000 internally displaced people (IDP) moved to multiple camps near the city, mostly from Mosul and also from towns and villages in surrounding areas.

MSF activities began in Qayyarah in December 2016, not long after the city returned to the control of the Iraqi government. MSF’s major activity in Qayyarah is a 60 beds hospital providing care to adults and children requiring surgical and medical care.

Mental health activity is based on the grounds of the MSF hospital. Care is delivered in an Outpatient Department setting, as well as clinical mental health care delivered for patients admitted to the hospital. Mental health activity is provided to people with moderate and severe psychiatric and psychological disorder.

There is the equivalent of a full time visiting Iraqi psychiatrist with psychiatrically skilled primary care doctor provide psychiatric care, alongside an international MSF psychiatrist. There are three psychologists, two psychosocial counsellors and one translator.

The needs for mental health care in this region and more broadly in Iraq are huge. There are very few psychiatrists in Ninewah governorate. Those who are present work in government clinics in the Mosul area. Shortages of psychotropic drugs are common and there are no psychiatric inpatient beds in the region.

Since the start of the activities in Qayyarah, presentations of adults have included conditions including severe mood disorders, adjustment disorder and schizophrenia.

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does - in programs, in advocacy and in operations.

For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life - in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions - her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society-™s most disadvantaged citizens - addressing inequity - not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries.

Senior Education/Economist Specialist, Luanda, Angola

THE WORLD BANK GROUP Established in 1944, the WBG is one of the world's largest sources of funding and knowledge for development solutions. In fiscal year 2017, the WBG committed $59 billion in loans, grants, equity investments and guarantees to its members and private businesses, of which $19 billion was concessional finance to its poorest members. It is governed by 188 member countries and delivers services out of 120 offices with nearly 15,000 staff located globally. For more information, please visit The vision of the WBG is the eradication of extreme poverty and the promotion of shared prosperity by fostering income growth of the bottom 40 percent in each country. To achieve that vision, in 2013 the WBG Board of Governors approved a strategy for the organization that leverages the combined strength of WBG institutions and partnerships with the public and private sectors to deliver customized development solutions. These solutions are backed by finance, world class knowledge and convening services. It has three components: (1) maximizing development impact by engaging country clients in identifying and tackling the most difficult development challenges; (2) promoting scaled-up partnerships that are strategically aligned with the goals; and (3) crowding in public and private resources, expertise and ideas. THE EDUCATION GLOBAL PRACTICE Education is central to achieving the World Bank Group's twin goals: it is a reliable route out of poverty through large and consistent returns-to-income for individuals and as a driver for economic growth. It is also a prime vehicle for promoting shared prosperity. A main challenge in the education sector, however, is achieving 'learning for all and learning for life'- that is, ensuring all children and young people acquire the knowledge and skills they need for their lives and livelihoods. In the past two decades, the developing world has made great advances in education, most notably in enrolling and keeping children in school and in approaching gender equality. Despite these successes in expanding access, critical challenges remain, namely: removing persistent educational barriers faced by the poorest people and those living in fragile states, and improving the quality of education so that schooling leads to real learning. In recent years, the WBG, and the broader education development community, have shifted their focus to include learning outcomes. Traditional input-driven programs have shown that they do not always lead to improved learning outcomes, so the WBG's education strategy highlights the need for a more comprehensive 'systems approach' to education reform, investments, and service delivery. This approach is about increasing accountability and targeting results, as a complement to providing inputs. Congruently, it also requires strengthening the knowledge base on education, to highlight where systems are achieving results, where they are falling short, and what the most effective solutions are for addressing identified limitations. These efforts are increasingly guided by the need to invest early; invest smartly; and invest for all. Through high quality analytical work, collection of evidence, and practical know-how in these three areas, the WBG is helping its partner countries accelerate their progress in the education sector. The Education Global Practice (Education GP) is led by a Senior Director, who has overall responsibility for the practice. The Senior Director is assisted by the Director, who serves as the Chief Operating Officer of the Practice. The Education Global Practice Management Team consists of the Senior Director, the two Directors and eight Practice Managers. EDUCATION AND THE AFRICA REGION The World Bank Group serves 48 client countries in the Africa Region (AFR). Clients range from low-income countries, among them several fragile and conflict-affected states, to a small but growing number of middle-income countries (MICs) but with weak human development indicators. Average annual per capita income varies widely and inequalities persist in most AFR countries, with most of the Region's population living in poverty. The Bank's strategy in AFR is focused on two pillars - competitiveness and employment, and vulnerability and resilience -and prioritizes cross-cutting approaches founded in governance and public-sector capacity. In AFR, many countries have achieved considerable progress in access to basic education. But challenges persist, namely: improving the quality and relevance of education at all levels; expanding access to early childhood development (ECD), post-basic education, developing emphasis on science, technology and innovation; and improving skills development. All of these efforts are needed to produce a quality workforce to sustain, innovate and expand on the current growth in the region. The Education GP team in the region works with client countries - at the regional, sub-regional, national and sub-national levels - to address their unique and shared challenges. We do this by addressing low-level quality at all levels of education, increasing the efficiency and accountability of education services, modernizing the higher end of the formal education continuum, integrating science and technology more effectively, and aligning skills formation with the needs of a fast-growing Region, including MICs. The GP aims to not only deliver high quality products but also to build capacity in client countries through collaborative interactions with country counterparts and other development partners. It seeks to bring the best possible knowledge to bear on the practical challenges facing client countries and at the same time places a high priority on knowledge generation, including through rigorous impact evaluations of education interventions. The Education GP is comprised of three Practice Management Units for the region. GED13 covers 17 countries in West and Southern Africa, across four Country Management Units (CMUs), and includes Anglophone, Francophone, Spanish, and Lusophone countries. In that context, the unit is responsible for policy dialogue, analytical work, and operational investments in the education sector. The unit's growing portfolio currently includes operations for about US$2 billion, sourced from IDA, IBRD, and Trust Funds, and technical assistance (TA) products in both low-income countries and MICs. The portfolio spans the full spectrum of the education sector from ECD to higher education as well as job-relevant skills development. The portfolio is increasingly using new lending instruments and approaches to support systemic reforms, including program for results (PfoRs) and multi-phased programmatic approach (MPAs), and the unit also plans to produce innovative and programmatic analytical work, particularly for our middle- and high-income clients, including fee-based services (e.g., Reimbursable Advisory Services). Many of our operations and analytical products are based on approaches that: (i) assist countries in developing and implementing strategies for ensuring quality teaching and learning at all levels of education (ECD, basic education, secondary education and tertiary education), and in addressing the issues that face these countries' disadvantaged and vulnerable groups; (ii) ensure that education systems respond to the needs of labor markets; (iii) continue to stress the focus on results; build capacity for monitoring and evaluation of reforms, and foster knowledge sharing; (iv) promote innovative strategies, cross-sectoral linkages, and partnerships with the private sector and other development partners whenever relevant; (v) develop and scale up successful strategies for regional collaboration to leverage economies of scale; and (vi) aim to strengthen governance, accountability, and transparency in the education sector. The AFCC1 CMU covers the countries of Angola, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and Saõ Tomé e Principe. Almost all the countries in this CMU are MICs but with poor human development indicators. In recent years the Bank has been working to strengthen its engagement in human development sectors in these countries through policy dialogue, analytical work and some lending operations. In Angola and Saõ Tomé e Principe -the Bank has a growing program in each of the countries' education sectors. In Angola, the IDA-financed Learning for All Project is under implementation, and the proposed IBRD-financed Education Quality Improvement Project is also under preparation, scheduled for delivery in FY20. In Saõ Tomé e Principe, the IDA-financed Quality Education for All Project is under implementation, and proposed IDA/GPE-funded education project is under preparation, scheduled for delivery in FY21. The Bank also support skills development through the recently approved the Social Protection and Skills Development Project, working closely with the Social Protection and Jobs GP. In light of the above, the unit is seeking a Senior Education Specialist/Economist, based in Luanda, Angola, to lead the education policy dialogue, provide implementation support to the education portfolio, and lead a program of high quality analytical work and TA in Angola and Saõ Tomé e Principe. This position will be focused primarily on Angola and Saõ Tomé e Principe, but depending on business needs, the work program could occasionally extend to other countries in the CMU/region. The selected candidate will report to the Practice Manager for GED13, and will be expected to work in close collaboration with the CMU. The selected candidate is expected to work with country office colleagues as well as other team members based in Washington, D.C working on the different programs.
