    Switzerland: Consultant – Manual Development for Health Assessment

     FULL TIME, Ingenieria Quimica, Recursos Humanos, Seguridad y Salud Ocupacional  Comments Off on Switzerland: Consultant – Manual Development for Health Assessment
    Dec 062018

    Organization: International Organization for Migration
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 13 Dec 2018

    Position Title : Consultant – Manual Development for Health Assessment – Homebased*

    Duty Station : Homebased/Field Travel

    Classification : Consultant, Grade OTHE

    Type of Appointment : Consultant, Six Months

    Estimated Start Date : As soon as possible

    Closing Date : 13 December 2018

    Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.


    Migration health assessments (MHAs) are one of IOM’s most well-established migration management services. They serve to protect the health of migrants, hosting and receiving communities and prevent negative health events during travel or upon arrival as well as facilitating integration.

    IOM MHAs are carried out for various purposes including upon the request of receiving or host countries as part of visa requirement processes; refugee resettlement; voluntary return movements, including emergency related; and the movement of various vulnerable migrant populations whose health status may require attention prior to, during or after travel (e.g. stranded migrants, trafficked populations). They consist of physical and mental health evaluations, as well as providing the opportunity for public health interventions or definitive care.

    The Migration Health Division of IOM based on long experience, has learned a comprehensive set of standards is required to support high quality, safe and comprehensive health care to migrants, including attention to the specific services provided, rights and needs of migrants, quality improvement, as well as management of and physical aspects of the health service. Through articulation of these standards, we will be able to provide in a structured manner for the health service to assess themselves in relation to quality and safety, before considering changes and improvements that may need to be made.

    Audience of the manual: The Manual is intended for internal IOM usage, and while applicable to the front-line staff in COs for awareness of the standards to be met, is principally for managers and senior staff to assess themselves in relation to quality and safety, before considering changes and improvements that may need to be adopted. It would also be used by senior clinical staff and (quality) governance committees to provide periodic reports on their status of service.

    Structure and content of the document: The Manual is not a technical instruction or standard operating procedure. It outlines the expectations and requirements to satisfy high quality and safe care in a consistent fashion. The Manual should be structured into 3-5 sections, each consisting of the core Standards and for each standard, further clarified through specific Criteria (suggest 2-4 per each standard); and each criterion having specific Indicators which should be measurable. A proposed outline will be provided to the successful consultant to guide the work.

    Length of the document: It is expected that each Criterion (including explanation and indicators)

    would take 1-2 pages. Given there would be an estimated 40-50 criterion, the document would

    be expected to be between 50-100 pages in length. References should be included if appropriate and would not be included in the proposed length. Furthermore, a glossary of terms should also be included.

    Communication channels: The incumbent shall coordinate all communication with the field and

    HQ through the Global HAP Quality Assurance and Compliance Coordinator.

    Under the direct supervision of the Global Health Assessment Programme (HAP) Quality Assurance and Compliance Coordinator and in coordination with the Senior MHD Management, the successful candidate will be responsible for development of the manual on the IOM Global Standards of Health Assessment Activities (hereafter referred as the Manual). It is the expectation that these standards will be structured in a hierarchical approach and in such a manner that the standard clearly describes the quality required for each specific activity and the key components (criteria) of that standard, along with an explanation of the key aspects of the criterion and indicators that measure the degree of achievement in that criterion and standard.

    Core Functions / Responsibilities:

    1. Analyse international standards of health care provision and create a compendium of these including a detailed bibliography and further reading on each specific topic.
    2. Analyse requirements for ISO certification of medical facilities and experience of current ISO-certified IOM clinics.
    3. Liaise with the senior IOM MHD managers/technical experts (to potentially include Senior Health Assessment Programme Coordinator, Emergency Operations Health Officer, Global Teleradiology Coordinator, Regional Laboratory Coordinators, Regional HAP coordinators, USRAP advisor, MHD HR Business Partner, Finance Officer, Migration Health Informatics Coordinator, and others as needed such as Regional Thematic Health Specialists and Global MHPSS coordinator), and if necessary, other IOM departments (e.g., resettlement, risk, immigration and visa support, legal department), obtain their inputs into the Manual and guide them on the development of additional documentation, required by the standards.
    4. In particular, reach out to the health assessment-implementing country offices (COs) and collect information about country-specific technical requirements for obtaining licences or other types of permits to provide health activities (including licences/permits for clinics, laboratories, radiology facilities, vaccinations and TB and other treatments). Analyse this information for inclusion into the Manual. These health activities would encompass stand-alone clinics, transit centres, processing centres, detention facilities as well as emergency responses.
    5. If required liaise and consult with key member states and technical partners to ensure the standards address their specific technical instructions.
    6. Create a complete draft of the Manual against all key heath assessment activities (a list of range of activities will be provided to consultant on appointment) and solicit feedback from the senior MHD managers, including Regional HAP Coordinators and Thematic Specialists. This manual should be developed in specific chapters (as outlined in the structure section above) and each standard clearly described and documented in hierarchical manner along with criteria, explanation and indicators of achievement.
    7. Review existing service standard indicators, amend and incorporate into the Manual as relevant.
    8. Present the clean working version of the Manual for final coordination and publication.
