The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) is a non-government organisation based in Geneva which serves an international and diverse population of cancer organisations to unite the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity and to integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda.

Through our capacity building activities, UICC supports its members do a better job tomorrow than they do today and increase their impact by scaling up their relevance, reach and sustainability in their own settings. With our members and partners, we drive forward the key advocacy priorities building upon key international agreements (the Sustainable Development Goals, the Global Action Plan on NCDs and the 2017 Cancer Resolution at the World Health Assembly) to ensure that these global goals and targets are translated into national action.

UICC has a team of 45 people based predominantly in Geneva, Switzerland led by a CEO, reporting to a Board of Directors.

Switzerland: Health Economist

 FULL TIME, Informatica, Telemarketing, Help Desk  Comments Off on Switzerland: Health Economist
Jul 212019
 

Organization: World Health Organization
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 04 Aug 2019

1. Purpose of the Consultancy

This consultancy is required to provide economic expertise to support ongoing work on the development of tools and guidance material as well as health economic analyses on the cost of inaction and economic gains through sector policy change to reduce air and climate pollution. This work is conducted under the WHO Urban Health Initiative (UHI) pilot projects which aim to strengthen the capacity of the health system in developing countries to address the health impacts of air pollution and its sources, particularly at the local level. This position also supports the development of guidance material on potential economic instruments for local governments in decision making about the financing of urban planning interventions enhancing health.

2. Background

The WHO Urban Health Initiative is implemented in response to WHA Resolution 68.8 from May 2015, which requests WHO to build health sector capacity to work with other sectors, and support countries to identify effective interventions and track progress, while continuing to update the evidence for health impacts of air pollution.

As one of the responses to the resolution, WHO is implementing two pilot projects (one each in Accra, Ghana, and Kathmandu, Nepal) to address air pollution and related health effects in cities in low- and middle income countries (LMIC). The rationale of the project is to empower the health sector to realize its potential to support scaling up policy actions to mitigate air pollutants at the urban level. The desired impact of the project is to reduce deaths and diseases associated with air pollutants, as well as to realize climate and other health benefits (e.g. less injuries, better diets, safe physical activity), associated with policies and measures to tackle air pollution.

One critical component of the project is to further develop and apply health economic tools to enhance evidence of the economic and health effects of air pollution, which includes, for instance, the incorporation or update of economic modules within existing analytical health and economic tools, guidance for costing diseases and other health conditions linked to actions against air pollution, improving the assessment of the cost of interventions, and providing training and support on health economic-related issues. WHO and partner organizations will use this evidence to inform stakeholders and policy makers about health and other co-benefits of selected interventions that mitigate air pollution. Additional guidance material will be developed to inform local decision makers on the benefits and risks of eligible financing options to support interventions for healthy urban planning.

Results and outcomes of the Urban Health Initiative inform WHO’s general work on urban health and, in particular, on air pollution and health.

3. Planned timelines (subject to confirmation)

Start date: 19/08/2019

End date: 17/07/2020

4. Work to be performed

Provide support for the implementation of the health economic component of the ongoing UHI pilot projects in Accra (Ghana) and Kathmandu (Nepal):

  • Support and review the health economic aspects of the health risk assessment of the health impacts of air pollution, considering various sector policy scenarios and focusing on priority sectors within each project.
  • Review and contribute to the UHI project reports, including a summary analysis report as well as relevant publications on the analytical work for both pilot projects.
  • Review and contribute relevant economic details and context to community outreach and awareness raising products, such as UHI health issue briefings, for both pilot projects.
  • Liaise with international and local experts to coordinate health economic research and analysis work and ensure the documentation of process and results, including through the review and contribution to briefings produced for both projects.
  • Through the UHI pilot project activities, support the development of guidance and tools to estimate the cost of inaction and conduct cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit analyses, including costing of diseases and health conditions related to action against air pollution, as well as costing of interventions.
  • Throughout the UHI pilot project activities, coordinate the development of guidance for applying value of statistical life (VSL) estimates for developing countries and cities in health assessments of sectoral interventions and policies.

Provide technical guidance on the development and refinement of economic components of analytical tools assessing the health impact of air pollution as well as the health effects of sector specific tools currently under development (including AirQ+, iSThAT, HEAT):

  • Support the development of methodologies informing the economic modules of AirQ+, closely collaborating with international and local experts leading the development process.
  • Support and review the economic aspects linked to the global adaptation of the HEAT tool, including on the case studies related to the adaptation, in close collaboration with the HEAT development team.
  • Support and review the economic aspects linked to other relevant transport tools under development (not yet released), such as iSTHAT, in close collaboration with the lead developer.

Develop guidance material on economic instruments that can be used by governments (with a focus on regional and local authorities) to create enabling urban environments for better health and well-being as well as to support implementation of healthy sectoral policies and interventions. These materials will focus on mechanisms including taxation, subsidies and other forms of financing, to support health enhancing urban/local strategies.

  • Building on ongoing work of WHO’s health financing team, coordinate the development of a framework for mapping economic instruments with evidence-based health impacts that can be used by local governments to support urban/local strategies to enhance health through urban planning interventions.
  • Based on the framework produced, develop the mapping on economic instruments with evidence-based health impacts that can be used by local governments to support urban/local strategies to enhance health through urban planning interventions, including WHO and other publications.
  • Building on the results of the mapping, coordinate a systematic review on economic instruments to support urban/local strategies to enhance health through urban planning interventions.
  • Considering the results of the systematic review, develop a report consolidating elements produced on previous deliverables.

5. Specific requirements

Qualifications required: Advanced university degree in economics, environmental economics, health economics or a related field.

    Switzerland: Community Engagement Consultant (WHO Urban Health Initiative and BreatheLife)

     FULL TIME, Informatica, Servicio al Cliente, Telemarketing, Help Desk  Comments Off on Switzerland: Community Engagement Consultant (WHO Urban Health Initiative and BreatheLife)
    Jul 192019
     

    Organization: World Health Organization
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 04 Aug 2019

    1. Purpose of the Consultancy

    This consultancy is required to provide expertise and support for the development of tools and methods on community engagement under the WHO Urban Health Initiative (UHI) pilot projects. These projects aim to strengthen the capacity of the health sector in developing countries and cities to address the health impacts of air pollution and its sources and to mobilize action against air pollution towards healthier urban environments. This position additionally supports the further development of the BreatheLife Action Platform, aiming at connecting key stakeholders around the globe, informing about the health effects of air pollution. With support of the consultant, BreatheLife will be expanded into a more action oriented platform.

    2. Background

    The WHO Urban Health Initiative is implemented in response to WHA Resolution 68.8 from May 2015, which requests WHO to build health sector capacity to work with other sectors, and support countries to identify effective interventions and track progress, while continuing to update the evidence for health impacts of air pollution.

    As one of the responses to the resolution, WHO is implementing two pilot projects (one each in Accra, Ghana, and Kathmandu, Nepal) to address air pollution and related health effects in cities in low- and middle income countries (LMIC). The rationale of the project is to empower the health sector to realize its potential to support scaling up policy actions to mitigate air pollutants at the urban level. The desired impact of the project is to reduce deaths and diseases associated with air pollutants, as well as to realize climate and other health benefits (e.g. less injuries, better diets, safe physical activity), associated with policies and measures to tackle air pollution.

    A key component of the UHI model process relates to development of guidance and support for the engagement and outreach of key stakeholders, including the communities, health professionals and other relevant groups (e.g. community and religious leaders, youth, schoolchildren, grassroots movements), which is critical to secure support on community level. Work with local communities includes the engagement of the local population in activities that allow for the enhancement of available data (e.g. localized pollution levels and geolocation of vulnerable groups), benefitting from a local perspective. Through the implementation of the pilot projects in Accra and Kathmandu, the consultant will work to derive the tools and methods necessary for informing the scaling of this component of the UHI model process to other cities and regions, including on aspects such as citizen science, placemaking, tactical urbanism, and building on existing ‘platforms’, such as people’s dialogues and knowledge sharing networks.

    Community engagement activities under the Urban Health Initiative also inform aspects of BreatheLife, which is a platform jointly led by WHO, UN Environment and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition to connect countries, cities, communities and individuals to share good practices that promote the reduction of emissions of air and short-term climate pollutants (SLCP). Following several years of successful global implementation, BreatheLife will be further developed to allow for increased engagement between BreatheLife members. In addition to the activities under the Urban Health Initiative outlined above, the incumbent will work closely with BreatheLife partners to support the development of BreatheLife into a more interactive platform.

S/He is the principal technical adviser and expert in the Fund for the area of Cash-Based Interventions (CBI) in line with the ICPD Programme of Action, World Humanitarian Summit, including the Grand Bargain Commitments and the New Way of Working. The Technical Adviser works through an integrated, coordinated, and systems strengthening approach which is fundamental to UNFPA’s overall strategy.

    How You Can Make a Difference:

    UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young’s person potential is fulfilled. UNFPA’s new strategic plan 2018-2021, focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal death; to end unmet need for family planning; end gender-based violence and harmful practices.

    In a world where fundamental human rights are at risk, we need principled and ethical staff, who embody these international norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction. UNFPA is seeking candidates that transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results. We need staff who are transparent and exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commit to deliver excellence in programme results.

    Job Purpose:
