Health Officer (Information Management)-NOB,TA, Mogadishu, Somalia Post# 00113650
The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programmes, 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. This is why 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 nations. The Health Officer (Information management) will support the delivery of an evidence-driven health programme that seeks to reduce morbidity and mortality rates among young children aged under 5 in the largely fragile, humanitarian context of Somalia.

Call for Expression of Interest - Humanitarian Cash Transfers (HCT) P3/P4 (EMOPS/NYHQ/Geneva)
As part of UNICEF’s commitment to scale the use of HCT, UNICEF has been strengthening its HCT related framework. To that end, the UN Common Cash Statement was formalized in December 2018 by the four principals of UNICEF, OCHA, UNHCR and WFP to commit to us common cash systems wherever possible in order to maximize efficiency and effectiveness gains. It builds on the recognition that cash assistance can contribute to reform the humanitarian sector, while offering a modality to agencies to better serve affected populations in a principled and dignified manner. The statement is also informed by a growing need to improve complementarities, synergies and accountabilities between UN agencies’ efforts. Under the UNCCS, three pillars were established: Payment mechanism, Data management and coordinated design and field implementation. Seven focus countries (Bangladesh, Niger, Central African Republic, Yemen, DRC, Afghanistan, Ecuador) were identified. To that end, UNICEF is strengthening its capacity to provide dedicated technical UNCCS field support to its country office, while contributing to the setup of a UNCCS field support team. In light of the considerable human resource investment required to kick start a common system where different agencies with distinct mandates and operational procedures come together, it was decided that each agencies set up a dedicated team of people to support these country offices implementing UNCCS activities in the seven focus countries, as well as to contribute to maximize common efforts and synergies as new emergencies which may arise.
