About the IAS:

Founded in 1988, the International AIDS Society (IAS) is the world’s largest association of HIV professionals, with members from more than 180 countries. IAS members work on all fronts of the global response to AIDS, and include researchers, clinicians, policy and programme planners and public health and community practitioners on the frontlines of the epidemic.

The IAS organizes the world’s two most prestigious HIV conferences, each convened biennially in alternating years. The International AIDS Conference is the largest conference on any global health or development issue, and provides a unique forum for the intersection of science and advocacy. The IAS Conference on HIV Science brings together a broad cross section of HIV professionals and features the latest HIV science, with a focus on implementation – moving scientific advances into practice.

In addition, the IAS advocates for urgent action to reduce the global impact of HIV, including increased investment in HIV cure research; optimizing treatment and care for infants, children and adolescents with HIV in resource-limited settings; preventing and treating HIV-related co-infections; and expanding access to prevention, treatment and care for key populations at higher risk for HIV – such as men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers and transgender individuals – including protecting their human rights by combatting punitive laws and discriminatory policies.

Jan 062018
 

Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 11 Jan 2018

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.

Duration of Consultancy: 01 February 2018 – 31 December 2018

Location: UNICEF ECA Regional Office

Reporting to: Regional Adviser Child Protection

Background

Institutional care is widely understood by governments and civil society to be harmful for children. After decades of evidence-based advocacy and policy dialogue, many governments have led reforms to close or transform large institutions and replace them with family based alternative care (including foster care) and family support services to prevent children from being separated from their families. While there is still a need to recall the evidence, and re-assert the principles, there is no longer a global or regional debate about the need to reform child care systems away from institutions and towards families and communities.

Europe and Central Asia has been at the forefront of this momentum, with governments leading reform efforts. And UNICEF has been a key partner to governments and others in these efforts. Examples include: support to the development of the 2009 UN Guidelines on the Use and Conditions of Alternative Care at the global level, creating an agreed inter-governmental framework of principles and needed steps; intensive technical support to governments across the region to generate political will and begin the process of reform; convening of a high level ministerial conference to end the placement of children under 3 in institutional care (July 2011 in Bulgaria); the establishment and maintenance of TransMonEE (a regional database containing important indicators around alternative care).

In 2013, UNICEF commissioned an independent evaluation to assess the extent to which child care reforms in eleven countries[1] during the period 2005-2012 had triggered results for children. The evaluation concluded that: Across the countries covered, there has been a noticeable decline in the rate of children in institutional care. The rate of children in residential care has decreased the most in Bulgaria (by 41.5% from 2005 to 2012). In Moldova, the number of children living in institutional care was reduced by over 50% (over 5,000 children were placed into family based care). In the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, the total number of children in institutional care dropped by 27.6% (2005-2012), while the number of foster families increased by 60% in the same period (111 to 178). The reform of child care systems in EU new member states (Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania) showed significant progress in creating a comprehensive legal framework aimed to contribute to the improvement of the quality of care.

The reforms, although moving well, require continued investment and momentum to ensure no child is left behind. Evidence and data show that children with disabilities have benefited the least from these reforms. A child with a disability in the region is almost 17 times more likely to be institutionalized than a child without a disability. As a result, approximately half of all children living in public institutional care in the region are children with disabilities – in some countries it is as high as 70 per cent. There are other countries in the region where progress has been slow overall, with little political will of governments to start important child care reforms. The region can be largely divided into three categories: 1) countries that have made significant progress, and require a final push to transform and close the remaining large institutions, ensure that the proliferation of unregulated orphanages is prevented, and accelerate the quality and availability of the relatively new family support services and diversified alterative care system; 2) countries that have demonstrated the political will to reform the child care system, but are still in the middle of the de-institutionalization reform stage and require intensive technical and financial support to continue towards a diverse, family-based care system; 3) countries that are at the early stages of child care reform, still have a number of large institutions for children, and require support to generate political will and new services to tackle the problem.

In all contexts, social norms around institutional care, especially for children with disabilities, is of particular importance. Closing institutions for children with disabilities and establishing high quality family and community based care and preventive services requires a multi-sectoral approach across health, education and social welfare – as well as intensive efforts at community level to overcome the stigma and discrimination associated with disability.

While de-institutionalization has been (and will continue to be in many countries) the entry point for reforming the child care system, it is not an end goal in and of itself. The process of de-institutionalization leads to diversified family-based alternative care services at community level (foster care, supported kinship care, small group homes), and to the further development of family support services (for example day care, social work capacity, highly specialized services for families such as counselling for violence survivors , mental health services or alcohol and substance abuse programmes). These services need to be maintained, improved and expanded in response to the needs of communities and families. Ensuring quality interventions requires setting standards, ensuring monitoring and support, and sustaining and expanding national budgets for these services.

For UNICEF the issue of child protection, including de-institutionalization and child care reform, is closely linked to broader social protection reform. Linkages between the two areas have been and will continue to be essential to successfully support governments in larger reform efforts that have an impact on child care.

The UNICEF regional office provides a comprehensive partnership and policy framework as well as technical support functions to these reforms. Child care reform and family support is a priority area for UNICEF across the region. The regional office has and will continue to lead the development of solutions and strategies for child care reform. Partnerships at the regional and global level are also particularly important. The EU’s groundbreaking Ex-Ante Conditions associated with Institutional Care, for example, were successfully advocated for in close collaboration with the European Expert Group in Brussels nearly 10 years ago. In 2020 these conditionalities, which prohibit the use of EU structural funds for institutional care, will be up for review. In close partnership with Oak Foundation, UNICEF is working to ensure that policy makers in the EU are aware of the importance of these conditions, and pledge to strengthen and extend them into the next EU budgeting framework post 2020.

Purpose of the assignment

Under the supervision of the Regional Advisor Child Protection, and in close collaboration with other senior advisors including Social Policy, C4D, M&E, Education, Partnerships, Communications and the focal point for disability, the alternative care consultant will provide technical support to UNICEF Europe and Central Asia Regional Office, UNICEF Country offices, and partner organisations in the area of de-institutionalization, alternative care / child care reform and the development of family support services.

Switzerland: Targeting Officer

 FULL TIME, Leyes / Abogados  Comments Off on Switzerland: Targeting Officer
Dec 232017
 

Organization: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 27 Dec 2017

BACKGROUND

UNHCR recognises the importance of engaging with partners in providing assistance to persons of concern in particular the complementarity of food and other basic assistance. UNHCR has just signed Joint Principles of Targeting with WFP in which the two agencies commit to a joint process of decision making on targeting food and other basic assistance at country level. UNHCR is also working closely with the World Bank to strengthen UNHCR’s capacity to collect and analyse socio-economic data which will inform poverty and vulnerability analysis and contribute to targeting of cash and in-kind assistance.

Provision of assistance is a key component in UNHCR’s protection and support of refugees and other populations of concern. Traditionally in-kind assistance to meet basic needs has been provided to all persons of concern recognizing the vulnerabilities associated with displacement. However, with increased numbers of persons of concern in urban areas and differences in socio-economic backgrounds, combined with global commitments to increase the use of cash for assistance, UNHCR is committed to targeting assistance to meet basic needs based on socio-economic indicators in a protection-sensitive manner.

Targeting cash, food and other basic assistance coherently and based on socio-economic and protection risk analysis is relatively new to UNHCR. While significant experience has been gathered in response to the Syria crisis it is recognised that different approaches are required for less-resourced, less capacitated operations. Currently there are a variety of approaches that UNHCR is using to target cash and other basic assistance.

While cash and food security staff are leading the targeting discussion in UNHCR as it pertains to cash and food, targeting is a process involving a wide range of stakeholders internally including those working in registration, information management, needs assessment, protection, and monitoring.

Objectives

The main objective of this position is to:

· Support the implementation of the Joint UNHCR/ WFP Targeting Principles and the Joint Technical Guidance on Targeting in five operations that are planning or implementing cash assistance and where joint targeting approaches are conducted with WFP for cash and food assistance. The support will include remote support, deployment of experts, temporary missions and sharing of relevant tools and guidance. This strategic support will be done in collaboration with food/cash experts and individuals involved in needs assessment, and monitoring as well as partners (WFP and WB) as appropriate.

Additional responsibilities:

· Support the strategic direction for targeting cash assistance (to meet food and other basic needs) within UNHCR and together with partners. This includes contributing to the finalisation of the Joint WFP/ UNHCR Technical Guidance on Targeting in collaboration with the wider UNHCR targeting group.

· Contribute to the joint work with the World Bank on socio-economic data collection and analysis at a global level and ensure that cash and food assistance related assessment and monitoring tools are updated and reflected in discussions.

· Support the development and/or revision of systems, tools and guidance to support the targeting process, such as proGres v4; assistance tracking systems for cash,food and other basic assistance.

· Collect and/or document good practice and lessons learned together with key partners across operations on targeting assistance, including tools and methodologies, for dissemination.

· Identify mechanisms to monitor impact and consequences of selected targeting approaches.

· Lead research and analysis in the area of targeting, including on what is the cost of targeting.

Qualifications

· Masters in Social Science field (including assessment and data analysis)

· 5 years field experience with an NGO or UN agency working in a cash based interventions or food assistance programme

· Demonstrated experience in doing primary data collection and analysis

· Demonstrated experience in the design and implementation of targeting cash and/or food assistance

· Demonstrated skills in socio-economic assessments and data analysis

· Excellent communication skills- oral and written

· Strong analytical skills 

How to apply:

To apply, please submit your CV/P11 and motivation letter (max. 2 pages) to HQCASH@unhcr.org by 27 December 2017.
