Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 05 Jul 2018

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.

1. Background

The ECA Region has seen significant developments related to child rights. Despite those developments however, the most marginalized, vulnerable and disadvantaged groups still fall behind. There are significant/widened equity gaps in realizing rights for all children (children in the poorest income quintile, children with disabilities, children from ethnic minorities, from migrant families and children living in certain geographic areas). These challenges are also seen in the areas of Maternal, Newborn, Child Health and nutrition (MNCHN) dimensions. There is a need to better understand inequity across the region but unfortunately, no regional inequity analysis in MNCHN has conducted in the recent past.

With the emergence of SDGs and the new vast set of indicators under MNCHN, as well as the newly adopted Strategic Plan, and common strategy that builds on the Regional Knowledge and Leadership Agenda (RKLA) in Health and Nutrition by late 2016, running an inequity analysis in MNCHN is needed. Further, undertaking this exercise will fulfill one of the recommendations of the regional MCE evaluation. To respond to this need, a region-wide analysis has been conducted using the findings of recent MICS and DHS surveys from 19 countries in ECAR. This analysis was aiming at identifying the inequities in health and nutrition for all eligible countries in the region and disaggregated by gender, geographical, socio-economic (quantiles of wealth) and in the context of continuum of care.

    Organization: UN Children’s Fund
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 26 Jun 2018

    The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does – in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life – in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions – her or his rights are violated.

    There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens – addressing inequity – not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. Therefore, the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nation.

    You are invited to review the VA below and kindly express your interest should you wish to be considered and deem yourself as meeting the required qualifications indicated below. We look forward to reviewing your candidature.
