Background

UNICEF in Kazakhstan in line with its Country Programme Document for 2016-2020 supports the Government of Kazakhstan to further advance its progress towards the sustained realization of children’s rights, with particular attention to the rights of the most vulnerable children and their families. Given the large territory of the country, a special attention is given to the subnational level to help the government to reduce disparities among the oblasts (regions) and bridge equity gaps. In this regard, UNICEF supports the regional governments in introducing proven and cost-effective approaches based on the international good practices as an innovative solution to existing problems. The successful models piloted in the regions are then presented at the national level and potentially beyond the borders. These include such pilots, as prevention of suicide among adolescents, universal progressive patronage nursing system, building child friendly justice systems, prevention of violence in schools and residential institutions, and creation of child wellbeing monitoring system.

Theory of Change: Theories of change have been used in designing, managing, assessing, and scaling up interventions. It is an ongoing process of reflection to explore change and how it happens – and what that means for the part organizations play in a particular context, sector and/or group of people.

Senegal: Immunization Specialist, P-4, Dakar, Senegal, #52612

NGO/UN Job Vacancy

Closing date: 14 Jul 2017

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world. For every child, Health

The situation of children in West and Central Africa is still challenging, but through strong political leadership in the region and with the support of donors, UNICEF is confident that it can help make a difference for children and for their communities.

Most countries in the region are confronted with recurrent outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases including measles, meningitis and yellow fever. Vaccine preventable diseases are still significant contributors to neonatal and child deaths, responsible for about 15% of all under-5 mortality in the West and Central Africa (WCA) region. Measles outbreaks are particularly deadly in emergency settings in communities experiencing, or recovering from, conflict or natural disaster. 367 children die from measles every day, despite the availability of a safe, effective and affordable vaccine. Measles survivors are often left with life-long disabilities, such as blindness, deafness or brain damage.

UNICEF, with international and governmental support, is helping to improve coverage for routine measles immunization, and conducting regular campaigns in the high-risk regions of Africa and Asia. Thanks to the work of UNICEF and its partners in both the Measles & Rubella Initiative and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, 149 countries have introduced rubella vaccination.

NGO/UN Job Vacancy



Organization: UN Children's Fund
Country: Niger
Closing date: 20 Jul 2017

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world.

For every Child,an advocate

A complex humanitarian crisis with natural disasters, disease outbreaks, malnutrition and displacement resulting from Boko Haram’s violence threatens children’s basic rights in the region.

Niger is a landlocked Sahelian country of 20.7 million people, most of whom live in rural areas (84%). The population is young, with 52% of Nigeriens being under 15, and nearly half of the population is poor (45.1%), despite reductions in the poverty rate over the past decade. The country, which ranked second to last on the 2016 Human Development Index, sees its development constrained by several factors: climatic conditions that hinder rural development, vulnerability due to the absence of economic diversification, high population growth, gender equality issues, low levels of literacy and education, and the size and landlocked nature of the country, which obstruct the provision of essential goods and services to the population.

In 2017, Niger continued to face a multifaceted humanitarian crisis that included not only conflict and displacement but also food insecurity and malnutrition, floods, and epidemic outbreaks.

Cambodia: Project Director, 4Children Cambodia

NGO/UN Job Vacancy



Organization: Catholic Relief Services
Country: Cambodia
Closing date: 30 Jul 2017

Reports To: Country Representative, Cambodia

About CRS:

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. Our Catholic identity is at the heart of our mission and operations. We welcome, as a part of our staff and as partners, people of all faiths and secular traditions who share our values and our commitment to serving those in need.

BACKGROUND:

Initiated in 2014, Coordinating Comprehensive Care for Children (4Children) is a five‐year USAID‐funded project implemented by a consortium of organizations led by Catholic Relief Services with partners IntraHealth, Maestral, Pact, Plan and Westat. 4Children is designed to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) affected by HIV and AIDS and other adversities. 4Children's work utilizes global evidence establishing that HIV and other adversities are best prevented and addressed when families and children have access to both high quality health and social welfare services. The project supports systems and structures at country and regional levels to implement evidence-based interventions that protect against risk, interrupt cycles of vulnerability, and build pathways to resilience leading to an AIDS Free Generation and contributing to overall improvements in quality of life and productivity for vulnerable children and their families.

With dedicated funding from the Displaced Children and Orphans Fund (DCOF), 4Children includes an applied research project called "Keeping Children in Healthy and Protective Families," (KCHPF) which focuses on strengthening family care among households where there is a high risk of children separating or where children can be reintegrated after having been placed in residential care.

In Cambodia, KCHPF will implement a mixed methods research activity that examines two dimensions of family strengthening. The first is the decision-making strategies that families use when placing (or not placing) their child in alternative care arrangements. The second dimension is an examination of child well-being. In both cases, KCHPF will be exploring these questions within four sub-groups:

  1. Children currently living in RCIs and their family members;
  2. Children who have been placed into other care arrangements (e.g., kinship care) and their caregivers;
  3. Children who have been reunified back into family care and their caregivers;
  4. Children and caregivers who have not separated.

KCHPF will use a mixed method design that includes an innovative, qualitative approach (SenseMaker) as well as a quantitative Retrospective Causal Comparative Design. Sampling will be taken from MoSVY's five priority provinces (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Battambang, Kandal and Sihanoukville). The latter will utilize a set of validated data collection instruments that KCHPF has used for similar research in Uganda.
