Social and Behavioral Change and WASH expert for NTDs at LonAdd - Job Vacancy in Ethiopia

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia LonAdd HR Consultancy Plc - Ethiopia

LonAdd HR Consultancy Plc (www.lonadd.com), Recruitment & Outsourcing Company will be working on behalf of our Client American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee in the recruitment process of suitable & knowledgeable candidate, as per our Clients specific requirements.

Report to: Federal Ministry of Health, Disease Prevention and Control Directorate, Neglected Tropical Diseases Team Leader

Duration:     1.5 years with an option of extension, and a 45 day trial period

Terms:                Full time position

  Location:     Based in the Federal Ministry of Health, NTD Team, Addis Ababa, requiring travel to field.

About the Organizations

This position is to assist a joint technical assistance project by the JDC and NALA.
American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is an international non-governmental organization impacting millions of lives in more than 70 countries, leveraging a century’s experience confronting poverty and crisis around the world. JDC began working in Ethiopia in 1983, striving to improve the health and wellbeing of those living in the Gondar region. Today in Ethiopia, JDC is:

  • Digging potable water wells, building primary schools, and providing vocational training and university scholarships for women.
  • JDC’s medical program continues to provide life-altering treatment to young people, particularly patients suffering from spinal deformities and those who need heart surgery or treatment for Hodgkin’s disease.

NALA aims to break the poverty cycle by eradicating NTDs and other diseases of poverty. The NALA holistic approach eliminates the root causes of those diseases, leading to sustainable poverty reduction. We aim to achieve our mission by:

  • Assisting regional, national and international actors in designing and implementing programs for controlling Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and other diseases of poverty using community engagement and health education for behavioral change.
  • Researching, developing and testing new NTD control modalities and tools.
  • Advocating for holistic NTD control models with stakeholders and decision makers that promote behavioral change.

The JDC/NALA partnership is looking for an experienced Public Health Professional and would like to invite qualified and interested persons to apply for the post.

BACKGROUND

Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) are a diverse group of communicable diseases that affect more than one billion people, costing billions of dollars every year. They mainly affect populations living in poverty, without adequate sanitation and in close contact with infectious vectors and domestic animals and livestock. NTDs deepen marginalization, stigmatization and social and economic burden or rural and economically disadvantaged populations.

The FMoH has launched its first national NTD Master Plan in 2013. The 2013-2015 master plan put in place a structure at the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) to coordinate NTD control and elimination interventions and intensified country-wide disease mapping, so as to enhance evidence-based program management. The FMoH Strategic plan for 2016-2020 widens the NTD control efforts, and proposes a holistic approach that includes investment in social and behavioral change, and water, sanitation and hygiene improvements. Nine NTDs are prioritized for intervention: Trachoma, Onchocerciasis, Schistosomiasis, Soil Transmitted Helminthiasis, Lymphatic Filariasis, Podoconiosis, Leishmaniasis, Dracunculiasis (Guinea-Worm Disease) and Scabies.  The strategy positions community empowerment and mobilization as central elements to NTD prevention and control, and stipulates that success in achieving the health related sustainable development goals (SDGs) requires active and meaningful participation and ownership by communities and strong partnerships between households and health workers. The strategy aims to utilize the Health Extension Program and Health development army structures as the main driving force for community mobilization.

NALA has been working in Ethiopia to eradicate NTDs since 2008. Throughout these years, a comprehensive learning process has evolved into the formulation of an approach, the NALA model (figure), that enables the community to take charge of sanitation and hygiene improvements targeted towards behavioral change and that result in a measurable reduction in the prevalence of NTDs.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

In light of NALA’s success in creating an effective model for community engagement, the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH) and Sightsavers UK has requested NALA to provide technical assistance in developing and coordinating behavioral change and WASH interventions for NTDs, focusing on the F&E elements for Trachoma elimination. Sightsavers UK is a non-profit organization appointed to manage the implementation of the DFID funded Trachoma project in four countries including Ethiopia.

The technical assistance aims to support the Ethiopian FMoH in intensifying the behavioral change approach, and in creating and rolling out a set of tools to support inter sectorial coordination of WASH and NTD, community engagement and mobilization for behavioral change interventions targeting the NTD program. In addition, special attention and implementation support will be given to disease hotspots/woredas in which the NTD burden is especially high.

In addition, support will also be emphasized for behavioral change and WASH elements (the F&E elements of the SAFE strategy) in Trachoma elimination programs implemented in 70, DFID-SAFE project, supported woredas. Trachoma is a neglected tropical disease and also the world’s leading infectious cause of preventable blindness. Ethiopia has the highest prevalence of active trachoma globally (30% of the sub-Saharan trachoma burden). Currently, efforts like ONE WASH program and implementation of SAFE strategy are being invested aiming to eliminate trachoma as a public health problem by 2020. The SAFE Strategy includes: Surgery services to prevent blindness; Antibiotic treatment to reduce the incidence of infection; and behavior change interventions to promote Facial Cleanliness and Environmental Improvement to sustain the effects of the interventions. These programs are implemented by NGOs that are supported by Sightsavers in four regions in Ethiopia (Orbis in SNNPR, Carter Center in Amhara, FHF in Oromiya, and Light for the World in Tigray).

The behavioral change approach aims to:

  1. Intensify awareness raising within communities regarding symptoms, treatment and ways of reducing risks as individuals and as a community on neglected tropical diseases that are endemic in their locations;
  2. Mobilize community stakeholders to identify barriers for NTDs prevention and to initiate steps to overcome those barriers;
  3. Influence sustained behavioral change that leads to disease control and elimination in NTD affected communities.

Improve WASH conditions, creating a community process that leads to finding locally based solutions that can be created and maintained by the community itself.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The post holder will serve as a WASH and SBCC expert and a resource within the FMoH NTD Team. This includes few key areas of responsibility:

  1. Promote integration of behavioral change and WASH intervention in government NTD control programs;
  2. Promote inter-sectorial coordination (WASH, NTDs, Health Promotion, etc.) on the federal level, and support regions in cascading similar approaches;
  3. Serve as a technical liaison of programs led by different structures within the FMOH which pertain to NTDs, including hygiene and environmental health, health promotion and communication, primary health care and the health extension program
  4. Lead and support National, Regional and ground level WASH and NTD coordination and integration platforms, and develop supporting guidelines and tools to facilitate them
  5. Closely work with government sector offices such as Ministry of Education, Ministry of Water, ONEWASH coordination office, bilateral organizations such as UNICEF, WHO and other WASH and NTD implementing partners
  6. Closely work with NTD teams (on federal and regional level) to incorporate SBCC interventions in their ongoing NTD intervention strategies
  7. Support the design of monitoring and evaluation methods and tools for measuring effectiveness of community engagement and WASH interventions for control of NTDs

Social and Behavioral Change and WASH expert for NTDs- Vacancy in Ethiopia

Addis Ababa with field travel, AA LonAdd Consultancy Plc

LonAdd HR Consultancy Plc (www.lonadd.com), Recruitment & Outsourcing Company will be working on behalf of our Client American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee in the recruitment process of suitable & knowledgeable candidate, as per our Clients specific requirements.

Report to: Federal Ministry of Health, Disease Prevention and Control Directorate, Neglected Tropical Diseases Team Leader

Duration:     1.5 years with an option of extension, and a 45 day trial period

Terms:                Full time position

  Location:     Based in the Federal Ministry of Health, NTD Team, Addis Ababa, requiring travel to field.

About the Organizations

This position is to assist a joint technical assistance project by the JDC and NALA.
American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is an international non-governmental organization impacting millions of lives in more than 70 countries, leveraging a century’s experience confronting poverty and crisis around the world. JDC began working in Ethiopia in 1983, striving to improve the health and wellbeing of those living in the Gondar region. Today in Ethiopia, JDC is:

  • Digging potable water wells, building primary schools, and providing vocational training and university scholarships for women.
  • JDC’s medical program continues to provide life-altering treatment to young people, particularly patients suffering from spinal deformities and those who need heart surgery or treatment for Hodgkin’s disease.

NALA aims to break the poverty cycle by eradicating NTDs and other diseases of poverty. The NALA holistic approach eliminates the root causes of those diseases, leading to sustainable poverty reduction. We aim to achieve our mission by:

  • Assisting regional, national and international actors in designing and implementing programs for controlling Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and other diseases of poverty using community engagement and health education for behavioral change.
  • Researching, developing and testing new NTD control modalities and tools.
  • Advocating for holistic NTD control models with stakeholders and decision makers that promote behavioral change.

The JDC/NALA partnership is looking for an experienced Public Health Professional and would like to invite qualified and interested persons to apply for the post.

BACKGROUND

Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) are a diverse group of communicable diseases that affect more than one billion people, costing billions of dollars every year. They mainly affect populations living in poverty, without adequate sanitation and in close contact with infectious vectors and domestic animals and livestock. NTDs deepen marginalization, stigmatization and social and economic burden or rural and economically disadvantaged populations.

The FMoH has launched its first national NTD Master Plan in 2013. The 2013-2015 master plan put in place a structure at the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) to coordinate NTD control and elimination interventions and intensified country-wide disease mapping, so as to enhance evidence-based program management. The FMoH Strategic plan for 2016-2020 widens the NTD control efforts, and proposes a holistic approach that includes investment in social and behavioral change, and water, sanitation and hygiene improvements. Nine NTDs are prioritized for intervention: Trachoma, Onchocerciasis, Schistosomiasis, Soil Transmitted Helminthiasis, Lymphatic Filariasis, Podoconiosis, Leishmaniasis, Dracunculiasis (Guinea-Worm Disease) and Scabies.  The strategy positions community empowerment and mobilization as central elements to NTD prevention and control, and stipulates that success in achieving the health related sustainable development goals (SDGs) requires active and meaningful participation and ownership by communities and strong partnerships between households and health workers. The strategy aims to utilize the Health Extension Program and Health development army structures as the main driving force for community mobilization.

NALA has been working in Ethiopia to eradicate NTDs since 2008. Throughout these years, a comprehensive learning process has evolved into the formulation of an approach, the NALA model (figure), that enables the community to take charge of sanitation and hygiene improvements targeted towards behavioral change and that result in a measurable reduction in the prevalence of NTDs.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

In light of NALA’s success in creating an effective model for community engagement, the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH) and Sightsavers UK has requested NALA to provide technical assistance in developing and coordinating behavioral change and WASH interventions for NTDs, focusing on the F&E elements for Trachoma elimination. Sightsavers UK is a non-profit organization appointed to manage the implementation of the DFID funded Trachoma project in four countries including Ethiopia.

The technical assistance aims to support the Ethiopian FMoH in intensifying the behavioral change approach, and in creating and rolling out a set of tools to support inter sectorial coordination of WASH and NTD, community engagement and mobilization for behavioral change interventions targeting the NTD program. In addition, special attention and implementation support will be given to disease hotspots/woredas in which the NTD burden is especially high.

In addition, support will also be emphasized for behavioral change and WASH elements (the F&E elements of the SAFE strategy) in Trachoma elimination programs implemented in 70, DFID-SAFE project, supported woredas. Trachoma is a neglected tropical disease and also the world’s leading infectious cause of preventable blindness. Ethiopia has the highest prevalence of active trachoma globally (30% of the sub-Saharan trachoma burden). Currently, efforts like ONE WASH program and implementation of SAFE strategy are being invested aiming to eliminate trachoma as a public health problem by 2020. The SAFE Strategy includes: Surgery services to prevent blindness; Antibiotic treatment to reduce the incidence of infection; and behavior change interventions to promote Facial Cleanliness and Environmental Improvement to sustain the effects of the interventions. These programs are implemented by NGOs that are supported by Sightsavers in four regions in Ethiopia (Orbis in SNNPR, Carter Center in Amhara, FHF in Oromiya, and Light for the World in Tigray).

The behavioral change approach aims to:

  1. Intensify awareness raising within communities regarding symptoms, treatment and ways of reducing risks as individuals and as a community on neglected tropical diseases that are endemic in their locations;
  2. Mobilize community stakeholders to identify barriers for NTDs prevention and to initiate steps to overcome those barriers;
  3. Influence sustained behavioral change that leads to disease control and elimination in NTD affected communities.

Improve WASH conditions, creating a community process that leads to finding locally based solutions that can be created and maintained by the community itself.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The post holder will serve as a WASH and SBCC expert and a resource within the FMoH NTD Team. This includes few key areas of responsibility:

  1. Promote integration of behavioral change and WASH intervention in government NTD control programs;
  2. Promote inter-sectorial coordination (WASH, NTDs, Health Promotion, etc.) on the federal level, and support regions in cascading similar approaches;
  3. Serve as a technical liaison of programs led by different structures within the FMOH which pertain to NTDs, including hygiene and environmental health, health promotion and communication, primary health care and the health extension program
  4. Lead and support National, Regional and ground level WASH and NTD coordination and integration platforms, and develop supporting guidelines and tools to facilitate them
  5. Closely work with government sector offices such as Ministry of Education, Ministry of Water, ONEWASH coordination office, bilateral organizations such as UNICEF, WHO and other WASH and NTD implementing partners
  6. Closely work with NTD teams (on federal and regional level) to incorporate SBCC interventions in their ongoing NTD intervention strategies
  7. Support the design of monitoring and evaluation methods and tools for measuring effectiveness of community engagement and WASH interventions for control of NTDs
  8. Support efforts to test and roll out key trachoma, face washing, and healthy hygiene and sanitation behavioral change interventions by the Trachoma partners in the 4 priority regions.

Internships Jobs at SNV - Job Vacancy in Ethiopia

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia SNV Ethiopia

SNV

Internship: Translator on Gender Related Research (Amharic to English)

SNV is a not-for-profit international development organization. Founded in the Netherlands 50 years ago, we have built a long-term, local presence in 39 of the poorest countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Our global team of local and international advisors works with local partners to equip communities, businesses and organisations with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services – empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own development.

For more information on SNV's  operations, visit our website: www.snvworld.org

SNV Ethiopia is implementing a three-year project (2016-2019) called ‘Gender and Youth Empowerment in horticulture Markets’ which is funded by Comic Relief. This project is about strengthening women and youth active in the horticulture value chains in order to raise their production, productivity and income through better access to assets, business development services, financial services, reliable input supply, markets and more. Improved access will only be effective if control over benefits accruing from the horticulture activities is also addressed in the value chain. Therefore attention will be given to the economic and social roles allocated to men and women based on tradition and culture and the mutual relationship between men and women. The project is undertaken from a value chain development approach, with special focus on the synergy between all the stakeholders in the chain and improving access to sustainable markets for smallholder farmers. 

The regions of implementation are Oromia (5 woredas: Zuway Dugda, Adama, Adami Tullu, Dugda, Bora) and SNNPR (3 woredas: Mareko, Sodo, Meskan) in which intends to reach over 15,000 households through two unions and their cooperative members.

Gender and youth deserve special attention in this project with a focus on how women and youth can increase their participation in and benefits from horticulture value chains through a business oriented approach. On gender the project implemented the PALS approach: Participatory Action Learning for Sustainability, see also blog page: …

In order to assess this approach and the impact it had on gender, the relationships between husbands and wives, the changes in the community in the intervention areas, but also to broaden it to the wider perspective of gender in Ethiopia, SNV Ethiopia is conducting a research in collaboration with the Vlerick Business School. A first immersion visit was done by professor Smaranda Boris in January/February 2018. She had many interviews with different people inside and outside the project (researchers, management staff from SNV, gender consultants, field staff, women farmers who were trained in PALS and their peer) and also stayed in the community to observe the daily lives of women and girls. In the next phase, more interviews and field observations will be held, data will be collected and analysed based on which a white paper will be published.

In order to guarantee the quality of the research, SNV Ethiopia is looking for an intern who will transcript the past and future interviews (which programme?), will translate during interviews and field visits and is prepared to stay in the community for a couple of days for translation purposes. During May, students from Vlerick will come to collect more data and analyse them, during their stay (about 4 weeks), translation will be required. The translation is from Amharic to English and from English to Amharic. Because we are researching the life of women, we are looking for a female applicant.

Job Requirements

The job requires a high level of accurateness as translation needs to be as precise as possible and reflect exactly what is being said. It also requires sensitivity towards people’s feelings, possible resistance, and openness during interviews and observations. We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic to contribute to research, who is passionate about changing poor people’s lives for the better and is interested and open to learn more about working for NGO’s, working in gender, working with local communities. 

Education 

New or current Master graduates with a background in anthropology, social sciences, gender.

Experience

  • No specific work experience required

Skills / Attitudes 

  • Excellent English speaking and writing skills
  • Perfect in Amharic, knowledge of Oromiffa is a plus
  • Computer literate and knowledge of the use of Microsoft office; able and willing to learn and use new programs (for transcription)
  • Willingness to stay a certain period in the community (live with the farmers)
  • Patience, accuracy and sensitivity to others feelings and perceptions is a must
  • Good planning skills with the necessary flexibility 

 

How to Apply

Candidates should apply by sending:

  1. i) A one page  cover letter including summary of experience and educational qualification; (Mandatory).
  2. ii) An updated Curriculum Vitae with names and contact details of at least two professional referees.

 THE TITLE OF THE POSITION YOU ARE APPLYING FOR MUST BE MENTIONED ON THE SUBJECT OF YOUR EMAIL.
