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.

Context:

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The Migrant Protection and Assistance Division (MPA) has the institutional responsibility for overseeing policy and technical guidance in counter-trafficking and protection and assistance to migrants in vulnerable situations including migrant children, and in return and reintegration, counter-trafficking and protection and assistance to migrants in vulnerable situations including migrant children.

Since the mid-1990s, IOM and its partners have provided protection and assistance to close to

100,000 men, women and children who were trafficked for sexual and labour exploitation;

slavery or practices similar to slavery; servitude; or for organ removal.

IOM also collects data on human trafficking risks and associated forms of exploitation and abuse in situations of displacement, large-scale migration and in various development settings.

Timely, reliable, disaggregated data and contextual information related to populations on the move across the Mediterranean routes to Europe is imperative to a well-informed, well-managed, humane and collective response.

To support various global processes, there are calls for stronger and more comprehensive data, analysis and actionable information to ensure that vulnerable groups, including migrants, are not “left behind”. In a context like the Mediterranean routes to Europe – where migration flows result from reasons as diverse as conflict, violence, human rights violations, fragile economies, poor governance and unstable environments, and spill over within and outside of countries, regions and continents – it is important to enhance collective understandings of drivers, routes and profiles to inform targeted protection measures, safe alternatives and effective responses.

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.

IRIN News is recruiting an Administration and Finance Assistant to help its operational support team introduce new administrative, financial and HR systems.

After 19 years as part of the United Nations, IRIN spun off in 2015 to become an independent non-profit media organisation, the world’s only news outlet dedicated to covering humanitarian crises. Over the last four years, we have constituted a legal entity, launched a new website, raised millions of dollars in funding, grown our team and struck a board of directors, led by Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist, author and professor Howard French.

This includes developing and implementing HR policies, introducing a new accounting system and rolling out new contracts with our network of 200 freelancers. We will also launch a new brand and visual identity in 2019, with our administrative infrastructure adapted accordingly.

During this consolidation and growth period, the new Administration and Finance Assistant will enhance our capacity to meet these ambitions objectives and build a robust organization for the future.

    About IRIN

    IRIN News is a non-profit newsroom focusing on humanitarian news and analysis. Founded in 1995 in response to the information gap exposed by the Rwandan genocide, it was hosted and funded for 19 years by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) as an internal information agency. An independent newsroom since 2015, our on-the-ground reporters highlight overlooked crises around the world, amplifying the voices of some the world’s most vulnerable people and critically examining the multi-billion-dollar aid industry. Our work shapes the global humanitarian narrative, affects humanitarian policy and prompts on-the-ground action.

    We are a go-to source for decision makers in the humanitarian aid sector, including in the UN, NGOs, and governments. Some 180,000 people visit IRIN’s website every month; 36,000 subscribe to our newsletter; and up to 70 million people access our work through social media every month.

    A 2018 reader survey found that IRIN’s journalism stimulates research and advocacy; informs the operational priorities of aid agencies; influences decisions to fund aid programs; leads practitioners to push for policy changes; and prompts journalists from other media to pursue stories often neglected by mainstream media.

    Our work is regularly cited and reproduced in local and international media outlets, including the BBC and The New York Times.
