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. 

For every child, health

UNICEF has initiated efforts to enhance primary healthcare access by empowering Primary Health Care Centers (PHCCs) to reach vulnerable communities effectively, ensuring the delivery of quality preventive and promotive services for mothers and children. The recruitment entails a multifaceted role in supporting UNICEF projects, including coordination of administrative and operational tasks crucial for healthcare initiatives. Responsibilities involve liaising with the Ministry of Public Health for essential documentation related to OMT payments, meticulous data management for Telecel platform SMS delivery, and gathering insights from the call center supporting UNICEF's Aa Salameh project.

UNICEF is actively engaged in supporting Lebanon's Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) to fulfill its immunization objectives, with a emphasis on strengthening the Cold Chain and Logistics (CCL) system, Supply Chain system and enhancing the distribution process alongside routine immunization efforts. In the first quarter of 2021, a comprehensive Effective Vaccine Management Assessment (EVMA) was conducted by trained EVM country managers and assessors, following rigorous training sessions held in December 2020 and February 2021. This assessment identified both strengths and weaknesses within Lebanon's Immunization Supply Chain (iSC) system, culminating in an overall national EVM score of 63% for 2021, highlighting areas necessitating improvement in vaccine supply chain management practices. Looking forward to 2024, a new assessment is planned, with the hope that the weaknesses identified in 2021 will have been addressed, leading to an anticipated increase in the EVM assessment score.
