    Company: International Rescue Committee

    ________________________________________
    Description:
    Position: Health Coordinator
    Location: Abeche, with regular visits to Bahai and other field sites as required
    Reports to: Deputy Director, Programs
    Duration: 12 months

    ORGANIZATIONAL DESCRIPTION:
    The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is one of the largest humanitarian agencies in the world, providing relief, rehabilitation and post-conflict reconstruction support to victims of oppression and violent conflict. IRC has worked for over seven decades and today is involved in over 25 conflict zones in the world. We address both the immediate, life saving needs of conflict affected people in an emergency and the reconstruction needs in post conflict societies. IRC is committed to a culture of bold leadership, innovation in all aspects of our work, creative partnerships and thorough accountability to those we serve. The IRC is an international agency with offices in London, New York, and Geneva.

    BACKGROUND:
    In response to a growing humanitarian crisis and the influx of refugees into Chad, the IRC launched programs in Chad in February 2004, focusing on the most urgent needs of water and sanitation, education, health, and protection. IRC program activities have been concentrated on the northernmost refugee population centers in Chad, which are located in the Prefecture of Borkou-Ennedi-Tibesti (BET), near the towns of Bahai and Cariari. In July 2004, the refugees were moved to Oure Cassoni camp, which was built and is managed by the IRC with support from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). IRC is currently responsible for the Primary Health Care, Environmental Health, Protection, Camp Management, Gender-based Violence, Child and Youth Protection and Education programs assisting the approximately 29,000 refugees in the camp.

    The health program supports the health and physical well-being of the refugees in the camp through provision of clinical health services, essential drugs, basic laboratory services, public health and community outreach through a team of community health workers, basic immunizations to children and pregnant women, reproductive health services, and referrals to secondary and tertiary care facilities, through a team of 1 expatriate manager, and additional national and refugee staff. The IRC health program also provides technical and material support to the local Chad Ministry of Health Bahai Hospital and Health Post under an expatriate program manager. The health program works closely with other sectors to ensure a holistic and thorough approach to preventive and curative health services in refugee and host communities.

    In 2008, IRC Chad aims to expand programs in mainly the East of Chad, focused primarily on refugees and IDP's, based on the needs of the target population.

    RESPONSIBILITIES:
    Under the supervision of IRC Chad's Deputy Director, Programs, and based in Abeche, eastern Chad, the Health Coordinator will be expected to undertake the following duties;

    Coordination and Representation
    • Plan and coordinate IRC Chad health interventions
    • Collaborate with other sectors to ensure a holistic approach in line with IRC's Program Framework principles
    • Represent IRC to UN, international and national NGOs, and Ministries of Health
    • Oversee implementation of grants and management of budgets, including budget forecasting, development of spending plans in cooperation with the Grants Manager

    Technical Monitoring and Program Quality
    • Provide technical supervision of, and technical support to IRC health programming activities
    • Ensure that health programs utilize standardized protocols, policies and guidelines, as prescribed by the Ministry of Health and WHO.

The IRC health program also provides technical and material support to the local Chad Ministry of Health Bahai Hospital and Health Post under an expatriate program manager. The health program works closely with other sectors to ensure a holistic and thorough approach to preventive and curative health services in refugee and host communities.
