Leading Voices: Defeating Malaria is Everyone’s Responsibility

Leading Voices: Defeating Malaria is Everyone’s Responsibility

Meet Hortense Kossou, Principal Technical Advisor for the USAID-funded Integrated Health Services Activity (IHSA) in Benin. Hortense previously served as the national malaria coordinator for the Ministry of Health in Benin and today leads IHSA’s malaria-related activities on the ground. In this issue of Leading Voices, she presents the challenges that the country faces in its fight against malaria and the actions being taken to combat it.

Malaria is the leading cause of mortality among children under five and morbidity among adults in Benin. How has the landscape changed since you first began working at the MOH in 1997?

There have been many changes between the 1990s and today. The Ministry of Health has implemented the newest technological innovations: for example, it has gone from providing untreated mosquito nets to providing long-lasting, insecticide-treated nets. Changes were also made to increase access to these products. Nets were first provided only to the most vulnerable groups, such as children under five; nowadays, there is broader coverage that includes all members of the population.

Consultancy – To support UNICEF Uganda C4D interventions in Karamoja region (Moroto Zonal Office) – NOB for Ugandan Nationals for 11 months

Consultancy – To support UNICEF Uganda C4D interventions in Karamoja region (Moroto Zonal Office) – NOB for Ugandan Nationals for 11 months UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up. For every child, a fair chance Uganda is one of the over 190 countries and territories around the world where we work to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease, and discrimination place in a child’s path.Together with the Government of Uganda and partners we work towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals, the objectives of the Uganda National Development Plan, and the planned outcomes of the United Nations Development Assistance Framework. Visit this link for more information on Uganda Country Office https://uni.cf/2mybtHh How can you make a difference? Under the supervision of the Moroto Zonal Office Chief, and in close co-ordination with the Zonal Office programme staff, the Country Office Nutrition unit, and C4D unit, the consultant will utilize the integrated approach for C4D interventions to fast-track planning, implementation, monitoring and documentation of C4D interventions, with particular emphasis on the community-based and facility-based health and nutrition communication interventions. The consultant will find and establish stronger C4D linkages between the interventions embedded in the three communication strategies (The Uganda Nutrition Advocacy & Communication Strategy, the NIECD and Adolescent Girls' C4D strategies) to further engage communities, sub national level leadership and development partners, for C4D implementation. The consultant will support the development and implementation of work plans (aligned to the activities in the CSD Nutrition and C4D RWPs) with the district local governments and technical planning committees in tandem with the District Development Plans. The consultant will support capacity strengthening capacities of the Zonal Office staff, districts and PCA Partners, as well as support supervision and monitoring of actions implemented in the frame of the UNICEF rolling work-plans. The consultant will participate in the documentation and dissemination of C4D results at sub-national level. Justification: Terms of Reference for a consultant to provide Communication for Development(C4D) technical support in Karamoja region (Moroto Zonal Office). The three thematic programmes Development supported by C4D include Child Survival and Development (CSD), Basic Education and Adolescent (BEAD) and Child Protection, under two programs of Early Childhood Development and Adolescent development. Communication is essential for Human Development and is central to empowering people to engage in dialogues and negotiations, to understand and decide on issues that affect them most, in their own context. It also plays a powerful role in addressing barriers and shaping demand for and adoption of preventive and promotive practices related to Health and Nutrition [1,2]. UNICEF Uganda engages Communication for Development (C4D) as a cross- cutting strategy to shift attitudes and behaviors of those who have influence on the wellbeing of children, their families and communities [3]. C4D is defined as a systematic planned and evidence-based strategic approach to promote positive and measurable behavioral and social change. In their own environments, communities and decision makers are engaged at local, national and regional levels in dialogue. These dialogues aim at promoting, developing and implementing policies, programmes and interventions that enhance the quality of life for all and strengthening their capacity to identify their own development needs, assess available options, and take agreed action, to improve their lives. These communities then assess the impact of their actions, and agree again, on how to address any remaining gaps [4,5]. UNICEF C4D’s design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation framework uses the Social Ecological Model (SEM) to identify opportunities and entry points for interventions that promote individual behavioural and broader social changes, and link behavioural and social change strategies with efforts to strengthen environmental and community support and participation. In Uganda, as a strategy, C4D is pivotal for programming across the different sectors. Key communication messages and motivation in support of various programme areas have been shared widely with communities through various channels of communication including mass media, social media, community media and interpersonal communication. Notably, in collaboration with the Government of Uganda and other development partners, C4D programming has been integrated through two programmes namely: The National Integrated Early Childhood Development (NIECD) and Adolescent Girls' Development. These in part promote the adoption of the evidence based 22 Key Family Care Practices (KFCPs) and address related underlying social and cultural norms. The KFCPs are commonly practiced behaviors at household and community level that impact on child survival, growth and development or on the causes of morbidity and mortality in children. For example, 35.2% of the children under five years in Karamoja are estimated to be stunted, and only 7.7% of households have fixed places for hand washing. Also, the Net Attendance Ratio (percentage of the school-age population that attends primary or secondary school) in primary schools stands at 37.2% in primary schools, and at 3.4% in secondary schools. A total of 16.5 % of the children have their births registered, with a birth registration certificate in place, while 23.6% of girls between the age of 15-19 years have begun child bearing [6]. All these affect children’s wellbeing and potential for development. Therefore, successful improvement in these indicators will in part depend on establishing effective communication programming to support social and behavior change at household and community levels.

International Consultancy to update National Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) for Children in Botswana, Gaborone Botswana

International Consultancy to update National Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) for Children in Botswana, Gaborone Botswana UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up. Background UNICEF is a global leader in child poverty measurement and analysis, working in over 80 countries in the past few years. Understanding the situation of child poverty is a foundation in building child-sensitive social protection programmes that improve the lives of children. UNICEF has unique advantages and experiences in assessing child poverty and vulnerability. National poverty lines are the mainstream reference point for poverty reduction. Ensuring that children are routinely reflected in these poverty lines is key. Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) provides a comprehensive approach to the multidimensional aspects of (child) poverty and deprivation. It is developed by the UNICEF Office of Research, with support from the Division of Policy and Strategy, to facilitate the analysis of inequities and to provide instruments to identify deprived children. MODA adopts a holistic definition of child well-being, concentrating on the access to various goods and services which are crucial for their survival and development. Available evidence suggests that children are more likely to live in poverty than adults. It emphasizes the need to specifically focus on children in national development plans. Addressing child poverty is key to breaking the vicious cycle of intergenerational transmission. Accurate measurement of the magnitude of child poverty is an important first step in eradicating poverty. To measure child poverty effectively, factors beyond household disposable income that affect a child's well-being must be included. Ending child poverty is both crucial for fulfilling the rights of every child and for the future of Botswana. If not comprehensively addressed, poverty keeps children from reaching their full potential and undermines the nation's growth, including progress towards Botswana's Vision 2036. In 2014/15, Botswana, under the leadership of the Office of the President and with technical assistance from UNICEF, developed a nationally owned methodology to measure child poverty for the country. The National Multidimensional Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (N-MODA) has been applied to create a framework for facilitating child-focused poverty and multidimensional deprivation analyses in Botswana. The employed methodological approach and key findings were presented in UNICEF-commissioned report on "Child Poverty in Botswana: A Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis". This report provides comprehensive estimates of child poverty in Botswana using both monetary and non-monetary multidimensional measures based on the 2009/10 Botswana Core Welfare Indicator Survey (BCWIS). In 2018, the Government of Botswana and UNICEF agreed to collaborate to enhance national technical knowledge and expertise around multidimensional child poverty. The areas of interest include: integrating child poverty measurement into national processes (national development plans, SDG reporting, statistical reports, etc.); updating child poverty estimates; and conducting capacity development activities. UNICEF Botswana and the Government of Botswana are therefore looking to contract the services of a Consultant to provide technical advisory support to Statistics Botswana on measuring child poverty and deprivations. Scope of Work Goal and Objectives The main purpose of the consultancy is to produce complete estimates of child poverty in Botswana using both monetary and non-monetary approaches. It has two objectives: 1. To generate estimates of national multidimensional deprivation and monetary poverty rates among Botswana children, as measured by N-MODA, using the 2015/16 Botswana Multitopic Household Survey (BMTHS). 2. To support Statistics Botswana in strengthening its technical capacity to measure child poverty and deprivations by: 2.1. Designing a Manual on N-MODA that presents a detailed step-by-step guideline how to carry out a multiple overlapping deprivation analysis; 2.2. Conducting a training workshop on N-MODA methodology. Work Relationships: The selected Consultant will work closely with the Research Support Team (RST), comprising representatives from UNICEF (Social Policy Manager and M&E Officer) and Statistics Botswana (Department of Social and Demographic Statistics). The RST will provide technical and management assistance, as well as constructive feedback to the Consultant at all stages. The consultancy is expected to take 50 days over the period 15 May to 15 August 2019. The consultancy will follow the schedule in line with the expected deliverables and timelines. It will only be negotiated if the delay is due to conditions beyond the control of the Consultant. Activities and Tasks: Finalize the research proposal in consultation with the RST; Analyse the 2015/16 BMTHS data and produce complete estimates of child poverty; Submit and discuss the preliminary estimates of child poverty with the RST; Draft a report based on key findings and estimatations; Develop a step-by-step guidelines to the N-MODA; Conduct an in-country visit to present key findings and to train technical staff of Statistics Botswana; Finalise and submit the report.

MEDICAL DOCTOR NEUROLOGIST M/F

For a creation of position MSF is currently looking for a : MEDICAL DOCTOR NEUROLOGIST M/F You are responsible to collaborate with MSF and MOH clinicians on the integration of epileptic treatment within the mental health program with basic healthcare services in order to ensure appropriate treatment of patients suffering from severe and common epileptic disorders. Background MSF ran an Ebola survivor care project following the large Ebola outbreak which ignited West Africa in general and Liberia particularly. This program including health and mental health care evidenced the high level of needs in Mental Health linked to the hemorrhagic fever outbreak but also as a consequence of the prolong conflict which affected Liberia during almost two decades with a high level of violence (250 000 death in a country of then 3,5 million, large number of atrocities). Qualified Mental Health care largely unavailable in Liberia. There is a 70-bed national psychiatric hospital (E.S. Grant Hospital) which operates with great difficulty. There is one part-time Liberian psychiatrist. In end of 2016, decision was taken to close the Ebola survivor care project and to assess Mental Health needs in the country to consider offering such services. The evaluation led to the opening of a Mental Health project in Monrovia to offer those services to the population. Though Epilepsy is not a Mental Health issue, it is considered as such (or spiritual malice and/or contagious disease) and largely prevalent in Liberia. The program will then also position itself on this pathology to relocate it as a health issue and offer care management to patient identified with such symptoms. The program is aimed to improve access to Mental Health and Epilepsy care services within Montserrado County through diagnosis, treatment and referrals in 4 PHCC.

Libya – A Head Of Mission Based in Tunis

Libya – A Head Of Mission Based in Tunis Humanitarian situation and needs After more than forty years in power, the revolution of 2011 put an end to Mouammar Kadhafi’s reign. Libya has been ever since confronted to a challenging political instability due to the state breakup. Since 2014, a new civil war has been underway. In this context, the country is divided between different military and political forces. This instability has a strong impact on the Libyan population’s living conditions. It reduces day after day its access to essential services. In 2019, thousands of persons remain displaced in camps across the country while some went back to their household. These persons, displaced or “returnees”, are facing a high level of vulnerability. Simultaneously, numerous refugees, asylum seekers and migrants fleeing authoritarian regimes or poverty are passing through Libya. Some of them are into the hands of human traffickers before risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean Sea. Recurrent armed conflicts, political instability and economic collapse have led to a complex humanitarian crisis. The United Nations estimate 823,000 persons are going to need humanitarian assistance this year in Libya (OCHA, HNO 2019). Thus, after eight years of crisis and instability, access to essential services remains largely limited, in particular for the most vulnerable persons. Première Urgence Internationale has identified an extremely concerning situation in terms of psychosocial disorders and access to healthcare. To a great extent, the former is due to the persisting conflict and the dysfunction of basic services. The latter is explained by infrastructure destructions, breaks in drug supplies and a shortage of medical material and qualified human resources. In the Southeast of the country, the tensions between the Tebu and the Zway tribes seriously affects the health system and the access to basic services. Tribe communities, when they are a minority in the area, are suffering from segregation in most of Al kufra’s institutions, including health care facilities. This occurs in a context of underdevelopment and poverty that exacerbates the impact of the conflict on the population in the region. Indeed, this area has been suffering, even before the conflict, from a poor investment from the central government. However, few information are available on this area and its humanitarian needs due to a poor, if not almost inexistent, presence of NGOs. Our actions in the Field In this context, Première Urgence Internationale intervenes for the improvement of both Libyan and migrant populations’ living conditions. Since the Libyan mission implementation in 2017, Première Urgence Internationale has been developing access to primary healthcare and psychosocial assistance in Benghazi and its surroundings. In the framework of quick impact projects, our teams have led the restoration of three healthcare centers as well as the refurbishment of the import control Agency and of the Al Jala hospital’s emergency service. In addition, our five mobile clinics have been providing primary healthcare activities in the region of Benghazi. They provide free support for primary, maternal and child healthcare, chronic disease treatment and access to psychosocial support. PUI has also led healthcare activities in migrant detention camps located in eastern Libya. Refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in general are caught in a vice. On one hand, being victims of discriminations, they face difficulties to access essential services. On the other hand, they are compelled to live hidden from human traffickers. This year, in partnership with other organizations, PUI launched a two-year project whose objective is to improve Libyan healthcare authorities’ capacities to treat chronic diseases, specifically in terms of personnel training and disease prevention. Besides, Première Urgence Internationale has extended its intervention to the water, hygiene and sanitation sector. First, by restoring a pumping station in a district of Benghazi. Our teams also organize regular distributions of hygiene kits to families living in camps and precarious accommodations. Furthermore, in 2018, PUI conducted an exploratory mission in the Al Kufra region (south-east Libya) in order to identify the specific needs of this isolated area and develop an adapted humanitarian response.
