Switzerland: Stop TB Partnership – Project Manager for “Out of Step Report”

 FULL TIME, Ingenieria Industrial, Leyes / Abogados, Mercadeo, Recursos Humanos  Comments Off on Switzerland: Stop TB Partnership – Project Manager for “Out of Step Report”
Jan 152019
 

Organization: UNOPS
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 27 Jan 2019

Background Information – Job-specific

UNOPS hosts the Stop Tuberculosis Partnership Secretariat (STBP) as of 1 January 2015, in Geneva, Switzerland. The vision of the Stop TB Partnership is to realize the goal of elimination of Tuberculosis (TB) as a public health problem and, ultimately, to obtain a world free of TB. Our network of nearly 2000 partners includes international and technical organizations, government programmes, research and funding agencies, foundations, NGOs, civil society and community groups and the private sector.

For the first time, the world has a united vision to End TB by 2030, as agreed in the UN Sustainable Development Goals endorsed by all countries in September 2015. Governments also held a historic UN High-Level Meeting on TB in September 2018, which resulted in the first ever UN Political Declaration on TB endorsed by UN Heads of State and Government. The Declaration commits governments to diagnose and successfully treat 40 million people with TB by 2022 and provide 30 million people with preventive treatment by 2022.

While there have been substantial and important innovations in the fight against TB, including faster, more accurate diagnostic tests and the first new medicines in nearly 50 years, deadly gaps remain in implementing and providing access to these advances. Outdated policies, practices and tools are key barriers to turning around the TB epidemic.

In response, the Stop TB Partnership and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) have partnered to produce the Out of Step report, a survey of national TB policies and practices. The most recent 2017 Out of Step report surveyed 29 countries and revealed that many still lag behind in ensuring full implementation of international TB guidelines and policies. The ‘Step Up for TB’ campaign was also launched in support of the report’s recommendations, which was signed by over 30,000 supporters around the world.

While countries have made progress since previous Out of Step reports, much more work needs to be done to make sure that these policies are fully implemented across all communities, so that they will make a real difference to people affected by TB. The Stop TB Partnership and MSF are commencing work on the Out of Step 2020 report and are seeking a candidate to coordinate and lead work on the report.

Brief Description of the Project:

This project will give the successful applicant the opportunity to work at the intersection of policy, project management, and advocacy and to employ research, analytical, and advocacy skills to produce a report for two of the world’s leading organizations in the fight against TB.

In partnership with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), this project will document national Tuberculosis policy that needs to be improved in TB endemic countries in order to make substantial progress in the global fight against Tuberculosis. The results will feed into advocacy and accountability efforts related to the targets and commitments of the UN Political Declaration on TB.

The candidate will serve directly under the STBP Deputy Executive Director as the project manager to coordinate the report. Tasks will include finalizing tools for country surveys, collecting and analysing results from the survey, report writing, coordinating inputs from technical experts and advocacy and communication leads, organizing regular partner calls, and regularly monitoring and updating the project work-plan. The incumbent will work closely with other teams in the Stop TB Partnership.

The successful candidate will also work with advocacy and communications focal points in efforts to advocate for countries to implement the recommendations in previous Out of Step reports, and to promote visibility of the Step Up for TB campaign through communications and publicity activities alongside the STBP communications team. The candidate will also help monitor and dissemination of news relevant to TB policies and document country successes in adopting and implanting new TB policies.
