Research Associate, Malaria Surveillance and Analytics, Southern Africa Mon, 05 Dec 2016 11:09:14 +0000 Overview:

Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses. Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management. By working in association with governments and other NGO partners, CHAI is focused on large scale impact and, to date, CHAI has secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries. In addition, CHAI’s teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective treatment and care.


CHAI’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.


Overview of Role:


Several countries in the Southern Africa region have committed to eliminate malaria by 2020. To reach this target, countries will need to rapidly detect and effectively treat infections, to identify and aggressively target areas where malaria transmission persists, and to coordinate efforts closely to ensure movements of people and parasites do not jeopardize success. Achievement of this goal across the region will bring the world one step closer to global malaria eradication. CHAI is supporting malaria programs in South Africa, Swaziland, Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana to strengthen surveillance systems, devise targeted and evidence-based plans, successfully implement these plans, scale-up interventions in high-risk and hard-to-reach populations, and to coordinate activities regionally.


CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with strong public health research experience and analytical skills. This individual will support surveillance, analytics, and mapping activities related to malaria elimination efforts. The Research Associate will focus primarily on supporting countries of Southern Africa where CHAI is working. As such, the individual will work with a number of individuals on CHAI’s Global and Regional Malaria Teams and will therefore need to possess strong communication and organizational skills. It is expected that the Research Associate will need to partner with other academics and public health agencies to ensure CHAI’s research is complementary and not duplicative.


  • Assisting to monitor and evaluate the performance of existing and new surveillance platforms;
  • Supporting the implementation of new surveillance platforms for improved data collection, data management, analysis and data visualization;

  • Translating results to national and sub-national government partners to support evidence-based decision making;
  • Synthesizing results and communicating them internally and externally at international venues;
  • Disseminating findings through high-quality presentations, reports, and publications; and

UNICEF Zimbabwe is inviting proposals from Individual International consultants for the provision of support in Child Protection in Emergency


Since the declaration of the emergency in February 2016, the drought situation has dramatically deteriorated across the country. Post-harvest assessments and the July Report of the Vulnerability Assessment Committee (ZimVac) indicate that up to 4.1 million people in rural areas will be affected by food insecurity during the peak hunger period (January – March 2017). This amounts to 42 % of the rural population.

Food insecurity increases the risk to HIV infection and default on care especially by young people, girls and women. Migration and other coping strategies employed by rural communities have created pockets of vulnerability in peri-urban and urban areas and other districts. Approximately 2000 children are estimated to have separated from their primary caregiver due to drought induced internal migration. The erratic hydrological cycle and El Nino impact has also had severe impact on the water resources and water availability, resulting in water insecurity. This has placed an extra burden of labour on women and girls and exposes them to violations of personal security and gender based violence as they travel long distances to fetch water for domestic use, engage in casual jobs outside the home for income to procure food.

The deteriorating economic situation is further compounding vulnerabilities of the drought as negative impacts continue to affect vulnerable women and children in Zimbabwe, with the situation expected to worsen in the coming months.

In light of these developments, UNICEF together with other humanitarian actors are strengthening and scaling up the multi-sectoral response to meet the growing needs. In addition, partners are closely monitoring forecasts on the likelihood and expected severity of the impacts of the possible La Niña episode towards the end of the year.


UNICEF has been leading the coordination of both the protection sector and the child protection sub-sector. UNICEF has supported both sectors in generating evidence to inform the humanitarian response. UNICEF has also led efforts in advocating for inclusion of protection in the larger humanitarian fundraising efforts. As UNICEF has the largest Child Protection portfolio, expectations from partners are naturally high. There is also limited capacity and experience in CPiE amongst the sub-sector members and Gov’t counterparts alike.

Also UNICEF Child Protection currently acts as a fund manager for a large pooled donor fund for the sector (Child Protection Fund), the existing team is predominantly occupied with the CPF management, implementation and coordination. Support of a Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator is critical in taking care of the emergency response activities.

Lastly the National Case Management system has just been expanded to nationwide thus data collection/compilation form subnational level is still underdeveloped. The Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator is needed to support the information management and surveillance at sub-national level and to ensure that the emergency response is integrated in the development programs. With this background UNICEF Child Protection section is seeking a Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator.

Objective (s)

Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator will provide critical support of leading the coordination of the sub-sector, fundraising, advocacy, capacity building of partners and government and the development of the child protection monitoring and reporting mechanisms.

Methodology & Expected Output

Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator will closely work with Ministry of Public Services, Labour and Social Welfare, Child Protection Fund implementing partners and members of Protection Sector and Child Protection Sub-sector. Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator will be chair weekly sub-sector meetings and monthly sector meetings as well as participate in HCT meetings and inter-cluster meetings as required.
