PMER Delegate

Do you want to make a difference? Join the world’s largest humanitarian network. The Canadian Red Cross Society, a not for profit, humanitarian organization dedicated to helping the most vulnerable in Canada and throughout the world, is currently seeking a PMER Delegate.

The project is of a four-year duration and is at the end of its second year. Two surveys and a study were conducted during the first two years: a household baseline survey was conducted to measure the level of knowledge, attitude and practice of communities in MNCH, with a lens on gender equality; a health facility survey looking at the services delivered in view of the capacities available at the facilities (human resources, hardware and commodities); and a qualitative study to explain some of the findings of the household survey, with a focus on gender barriers to behaviour change.

All components of the project are being implemented at different levels of progress with a lot of emphasis on measuring results during implementation. Large amount of data is being generated by the Integrated Community Case Management (ICCM) component, part of the District Health Information System (DHIS 2), with more data expected to come in the third year on health promotion activities. The focus of the remaining two years will be on improving the quality, analysis and utilization of data. The project is going to have three studies in its third year, two of them to inform on the quality of ICCM implementation, and one operational research testing approaches to reduce infant mortality. The project will have an end-line household survey and a summative evaluation.

WORKING CONDITIONS

This is an unaccompanied position based in Bamako, Mali. Mali suffers from lack of basic infrastructure and social services and more than half of the population lives in poverty. Legal frameworks and institutions to enforce the rule of law are largely undeveloped. Political conflicts, terrorism, kidnapping in different parts of the country especially in the North are a threat to foreigners and some travel restrictions apply. Delegates are obligated to follow the Red Cross Movement security regulations.

CRCS supports a safe working environment and comfortable accommodation; however, as in all contexts, delegates must be aware and responsible for their personal safety and that of employees under their supervision.

Interested parties may submit their application by applying on the Canadian Red Cross Online Career Website by midnight EST on February 26, 2018.

This position requires a successful Canadian criminal record, reference check, valid provincial driver’s license, valid passport and First Aid certification. The Canadian Red Cross Society is an equal opportunity employer.
