United States of America: Malaria Elimination Initiative Lead

Organization: UCSF Global Health Group
Country: United States of America
Closing date: 15 Jan 2017

The Global Health Group

The Global Health Group (GHG) at the University of California, San Francisco, Global Health Sciences, is an “Action Tank,” dedicated to translating major new paradigms into large-scale action to positively impact the lives of millions of people. Led by Sir Richard Feachem, formerly the founding executive director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the GHG works with researchers, policymakers and implementers to better understand and address health challenges and tackle neglected global health priorities. Through boldness, focus, collaboration and innovation, we can reduce the burden of disease and enhance economic prosperity for people around the world. The GHG was founded in late 2007 and works closely with a wide range of public and private partners, both in-country and internationally. The GHG currently has two initiatives:

· The Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI)

· The Evidence To Policy Initiative (E2Pi)

More information at http://ift.tt/2gIt9xB

The Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI)

The GHG’s Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) believes a malaria-free world is possible within a generation. The MEI brings the vision, strategy, and evidence-based approaches to catalyze action in countries and regions paving the way for global malaria eradication.

As a forward-thinking partner on the malaria elimination frontline, the MEI generates evidence through operational research, develops new tools and approaches, documents and disseminates elimination experiences, builds consensus, assesses the costs and benefits of elimination, and strengthens political and financial commitment to shrink the malaria map.

With support from the MEI’s highly-skilled team of economists, advocates, project managers, malariologists, and epidemiologists, countries around the world are actively working to eliminate malaria—a goal that nearly 30 countries will achieve by 2020. For more information about our approach and impact, visit http://ift.tt/2gVbHck.

The MEI is funded through grants from the Asian Development Bank, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Drollinger Foundation, Google, Novartis Foundation, The Parker Foundation, and Sumitomo Chemical Company. The overall program of work totals more than $12 million annually. The MEI team comprises roughly 40 individuals, based in San Francisco, New York, Singapore, Vientiane, and Windhoek.

The Malaria Elimination Initiative Lead

The GHG seeks a dynamic and talented individual to provide ongoing leadership and development of the Malaria Elimination Initiative, and scientific and programmatic direction and guidance to its work. Specifically, the MEI Lead will:

· Provide overall leadership for the MEI team and all aspects of its work including setting the strategic direction of the MEI

· Develop and maintain a strong network of partnerships with key national malaria programs as well as multilateral, bilateral, NGO, policy and research institutions involved in malaria elimination and eradication, including the WHO.

· Represent the MEI at malaria-related events and meetings, such as through participation in conferences, stakeholder groups, advisory groups, and other meetings as necessary.

· Be responsible for the scientific and technical development of the MEI’s program of evidence generation and operational research on malaria elimination and eradication, and for ensuring that the MEI’s positions, policies and statements on malaria elimination and eradication are consistent with this evidence.

· Ensure the publication and broad dissemination of the results of the work of the MEI on malaria elimination and eradication.

· Maintain and cultivate relationships with current and future funders of the MEI, and work with GHG leadership to ensure the medium and long-term financial viability and growth of the Initiative.

· Engage as appropriate in research, teaching, mentoring and public service.

· Contribute to overall strategy and direction of GHG as a member of the GHG leadership team.

The MEI Lead will report on all matters of content to Professor Sir Richard Feachem, Director of the Global Health Group. The MEI Lead will work closely with Dr. Roly Gosling, current MEI Lead and soon to be MEI Lead for Southern Africa based in Windhoek. The MEI Lead will be strongly supported by MEI Deputy Lead Allison Phillips.

This position is full-time, based in San Francisco, California, with an anticipated start date not later than July 2017. The appointee will be a member of the faculty of the University of California, San Francisco. The position is fully funded for two years with a strong expectation of continuation based on funding. Extensive international and domestic travel is entailed. An MD and/or PhD is required, with a strong background in malaria and/or infectious diseases and epidemiology, together with an exceptional track record in program leadership and team management.


How to apply:

To express interest and for more information on this position, please contact Jeremy Alberga at Jeremy.Alberga@ucsf.edu by January 15, 2017.

Find out about our history and values

Humanitarian situation and needs

At the 2012 Tokyo Conference, Afghanistan announced its road map toward self-reliance. However, great challenges remain to be overcome. Security, social and economic development, good governance, and justice are, among other issues, essential pre- conditions in order to achieve the country’s ambitious objectives. The withdrawal of the majority of international troops in 2014 as well as the recent change in government leadership has raised questions concerning the stability of the country. In fact, 2014 witnessed an increased level of violence with civilians paying the highest price, a rise in unemployment and criminality.

Rebuilding and strengthening the health-care system is still a priority in Afghanistan with the country-wide continuation of the implementation of the Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS) and the Essential Package of Hospital Services (EPHS) initiated in 2003 and 2005. PUI is a key implementing partner for both the BPHS and EPHS programmes.

Our action in the field

PUI reaffirms its commitment to support Afghan people through a strategy based on its experience of the country and expertise in health interventions. Complementary to the implementation of the BPHS and EPHS programs, PUI has started health targeting for the conflict-affected and hard-to-reach population.

PUI will also seek to develop an integrated approach in its areas of intervention, with projects on food security, livelihoods and WaSH, to comprehensively respond to the needs of vulnerable populations.

Iraq: Iraq – A Non-Camp Refugees Project Manager in Dohuk

Organization: Première Urgence Internationale
Country: Iraq
Closing date: 31 Dec 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

Iraq is facing one of the most critical humanitarian crisis of the moment. Around 8 million people are currently in need of humanitarian assistance across most regions of the country.

Since the Iraqi Constitution was adopted in 2005 Iraq has been divided into federal regions that handle their own domestic affairs, reporting to Baghdad central government, who is also responsible for international affairs. Additionally, in the North, there is the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan (KRI) which includes three provinces: Erbil; Dohuk & Sulaymaniyah. There are ongoing tensions between KRI government and the Central Iraqi Government over how much authority is devolved and the distribution of finance from the oil found in the region.

Against this backdrop, in 2014, wide-scale violence and armed conflict erupted in Iraq when the Islamic State insurgency crossed the Syrian border. That same year, the cities Fallujah, Ramadi and Mosul fell in the hand of the terrorist group causing massive population displacement, especially from Anbar, Ninewa and Salah al-Din governorates. The fall of Fallujah and Ramadi in early 2014 pushed people south and west into Baghdad, with 80,600 families fleeing to the area, and the later fall of Mosel in the summer pushed populations both North into KRI and South to the governorates of Kerbala and Najaf.

The majority of the IDP population, nearly 800,000 people, were displaced in August 2014 when hostilities affected the Sinjar region in Ninewa Governorate. By November 2015, the governorates hosting the largest IDP population (1.5 million IDPs) were Anbar, Baghdad and Dohuk. In just over two years, the number of internally displaced population rose to 3.2 million in the country, 9% of this population are currently settled in IDP camps. Dohuk alone has 16 IDP camps. Continuing fighting plus governmental interventions mean that there is still ongoing displacement and a potential offensive against IS-held Mosul could cause displacement of a further 100,000 people, most probably to KRI.

In addition, the Syrian conflict, which has been ongoing for the last 5 years, has pushed over 244,758 Syrian refugees into Iraq. Most of these refugees are Syrian Kurds and as such have settled in Iraqi Kurdistan, with 95,314 individuals are currently in Dohuk.

These displaced populations are highly vulnerable, and the United nations has declared this a Protection Crisis. A cholera outbreak in the country was confirmed in mid-September 2015 with 2,200 people reported to have been infected. There is a risk that the disease will spread due to heavy rain and lack of basic sanitary infrastructures in remote areas of the country especially in the southern governorates.

Our action in the field

PUI is currently providing large scale comprehensive health interventions in three governorates in both the north and south. Focusing on rural and hard to reach areas, as well as communities with over stretched services, through mobile health and surveillance teams, and outreach networks, and on camps to support and implement a structured heath system. In Dohuk PUI have a reach of 50,000 IDPs and 30,000 Refugees, in Ninewa 12,000 IDPs and 7,000 Refuges and in Najaf reaching 24,000 IDPs. WASH care and maintenance in camps, emergency latrine building, tool loan committees and hygiene kit distributions support IDPs and refugees to improve their health outcomes by improving living conditions and hygiene behaviours. In addition psychological support is run through mobile teams, and awareness of protection issues is being increased through outreach workers. PUI are improving living conditions of urban households implementing community quick impact projects and creating job opportunities (training centres and Professional Tool Kits) for 460 IDPs and returnees.

Focusing on the current governorates of work, PUI will continue to deliver an integrated package of services with health as the core response, expanding to cover WASH, livelihoods, psychosocial support, and protection as complementary interventions, in both urban and rural areas. Working in Dohuk, Bardarash, Najaf and Baghdad allows a comprehensive, fast, response to movement by IDPs out of Mosel, from Sinjar, and from Anbar in response to IS, to communities choosing, or being forced to return to “liberated” areas, and also to support the needs of refugees crossing the border from Syria. By working through mobile teams in both KRI and South Iraq it is possible to respond to new movements very quickly, to assess needs, and to reach areas that other actors and local government are unable or reluctant to serve. The Mobile health team in Ninewa currently work up to 6 km from the front line. Surveillance teams in the south will allow fast reactions to outbreaks, and planned responses, for example to cholera, will allow populations to be more resilient to communicable diseases.
