    Switzerland: Supply Chain Visibility and Analytics Expert

     Diseño Grafico, FULL TIME  Comments Off on Switzerland: Supply Chain Visibility and Analytics Expert
    Dec 032019
     

    Organization: World Health Organization
    Country: Switzerland, United Arab Emirates
    Closing date: 10 Dec 2019

    OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAMME

    The mission of WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme (The Programme) is to build the capacity of Member States to manage health emergency risks and, when national capacities are overwhelmed, to lead and coordinate the international health response to contain outbreaks and to provide effective relief and recovery to affected populations.

    The WHO Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office (EMRO) is home to the largest number of protracted emergencies and populations in need of humanitarian medical assistance globally. The Health Emergency programme (WHE) of WHO relies upon pre-positioned medical supplies and equipment for a timely and effective response to all types of health emergencies.

    Recently, WHO expanded its regional supply chain hub located within the International Humanitarian City (IHC) in Dubai, UAE from 3000 sq meter to 14,000 sq meters. Enabling WHO to deliver a safe, secure, uninterrupted supply of medical commodities in a timely manner. Within Q1 of 2019, the Dubai-based operation responded to over 24 countries across 3 regions delivering medical supplies to over 2.4 million beneficiaries.

    The expanded capacity of regional supply chain platform provides a unique opportunity to build upon the successes of the operation, adopt more efficient and agile supply chain practices, and modernize supply chain management approaches within WHO to save more lives and alleviate more suffering, and protect more people from health emergencies globally.

    Innovative Technologies in Medical Emergencies (INTiME)

    Poor performing humanitarian supply chains contribute exacerbate emergency conditions and can lead to additional loss of life. Limited supply chain visibility represents one of the most significant and visible impediments to protecting 1 billion from health emergencies. The lack of a modern, intelligent supply chain management information system limits the availability of life-saving medical supplies and reduces the number of lives saved by World Health Organization. Today, more than ever before, mobile technology and social media monitor, document, and share, in real-time, the arrival of emergency medical supplies. Delays in product delivery or the misuse of shelf-life data can be used to damage WHO’s reputation with record speed, instantly eroding a trust that has often been hard-fought to build. Yet at the same time, the expertise and technology to overcome these limitations have never been more accessible or affordable. Innovative mobile technology and advances in the science of supply chain management offer WHO an unparralled opportunity to adopt industry-leading best practices.

    For these reasons, a ground-breaking innovative supply chain management project is needed to seize the opportunity to transform the business of delivering life-saving humanitarian medical supplies and reshape WHO’s global supply chain.

    The project concept, Innovative Technologies in Medical Emergencies (INTiME) was developed to harness innovative technologies and best-practices to modernize WHO’s supply chain and improve the performance and delivery of life-saving medical supplies.

    The WHO medical supply chain has the potential to save lives, alleviate human suffering, and improve public health outcomes, yet fragmented and obscure supply chain data impedes the effectiveness of and access to life-saving medicines and medical supplies, particularly during the initial phases of health emergencies. Limited supply chain data thwarts efforts to improve field-level coordination and leads to the ineffective allocation of limited resources, impeding healthcare delivery in areas where it is most critically needed. Harnessing available supply chain management information systems as well as mobile and digital technologies, the Innovative Technology in Medical Emergencies (INTiME) project aims to design and implement a set of modules, dashboards, and mobile applications to capture, share, and increase the real-time visibility of WHO medical supply chain data. Tracking and tracing the real-time production, shipment, storage, consumption, distribution, and location information of medical supplies.

    InTiME will place vital supply chain data into the hands of front-line response personnel and their organizational leadership to enable strategic decision making regarding items to be held in inventory as well as for the field-level prioritization of resources, coordination among first responders, and a more agile and effective supply chain to support emergency responses. Equipping WHO with real-time supply chain data from the manufacturers of medical supplies to the field will: 1) Increase access to life-saving medical supplies among vulnerable populations; saving lives, 2) Accelerate the responsiveness of humanitarian medical supply chains to evolving field-level demands; saving time, 3) Strengthen the use of supply chain data to improve the allocation of limited resources; reducing costs, and 4) Enhance response coordination among front-line organizations through the sharing of real-time supply chain data; strengthening partnerships.

    WHO seeks a consultant to lead and implement this supply chain data visibility project that will directly impact and transform the Organization’s capabilities to respond to crisis and reach the goal of protecting 1 billion from health emergencies.

    Switzerland: Consultancy (3 months): Advocacy Specialist (migration and refugee), Country Relations, Division of Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP)

    Organization: UN Children’s Fund
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 06 Dec 2019

    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, hope

    Millions of children are on the move across international borders – fleeing violence and conflict, disaster or poverty, in pursuit of a better life. In particular, the global number of refugee and migrant children moving alone has reached a record high. At least 300,000 unaccompanied and separated children were recorded in some 80 countries in 2015–2016, up from 66,000 in 2010–2011. In 2018, European countries* recorded some 602,920 new asylum seekers. Nearly a third of them (32%) were children (191,360). This represents an 8% decrease compared to child asylum seekers in 2017. This included 20,325 unaccompanied and separated children (UASC).

    Serious gaps in the laws, policies and services meant to protect children on the move leave refugee and migrant children bereft of protection and care.

    With the aim of addressing these gaps, UNICEF has stepped up its work in support of migrant and refugee children in the recent years. In September 2015, a response to the crisis in Europe was set up, including the very active involvement of eight National Committees (Greece, Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, Germany, the UK and France). PFP, through the Child Rights Advocacy and Policy Team in the Country Relations Section, has been actively involved in supporting these National Committees as well as other National Committees working on migration in the implementation of their advocacy role on the protection of refugee and migrant children.
