Consultant SRH Specialist

26 October 2018

UNFPA Vanuatu Field Office

The Consultant SRH Specialist post is located in the UNFPA Field Office and reports directly to the Sub-Regional Director who provides overall leadership, and receives input from the Programme Management team based in Suva, on the overall programme strategy. S/he is part of an inter-disciplinary team, which provides integrated programme, technical and operational support in delivering the SRP 6 Programme which includes the NZ MFAT funded youth programme and the DFAT supported Transformational Agenda programme and works in close coordination with the Vanuatu based Programme Analyst.

PSRO is currently in the process of recruiting a substantive SRH Specialist for Vanuatu, so in the meantime, this consultancy is expected to undertake the identified responsibilities before the substantive post holder takes up the position.

The Consultant SRH Specialist will work closely with partners to facilitate the coordination, management, monitoring and reporting of quality, timely and integrated technical and programme support to the country, ensuring that the agreed strategic interventions of the Transformative Agenda are implemented in the context of the UN Pacific Strategy and the UNFPA Pacific regional programme (SRPD) at the regional level and the UNFPA Country Programme at the national level, and in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, ICPD Programme of Action and UNFPA global Strategic Plan. More specifically, the interventions will contribute to measurably reduce unmet need for Family Planning through ensuring universal access to SRH information and services in the context of the national public health system supported where appropriate by civil society partners and the private sector.
