Job Description – Amref Health Africa

1.     Introduction

Amref Health Africa, the largest African led international organization on the continent, provides training and health services to over 30 countries in Africa. Founded in 1957 as the Flying Doctors of East Africa to bring critical health services to remote communities, Amref Health Africa now delivers preventative, community-based health care. With a focus on women and children, Amref Health Africa manages a full range of medical and public health programs tackling the most critical health challenges facing country focusing on three key programmatic areas: Reproductive,  Maternal,  Neonatal  and Child Health (RMNCH); Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Communicable  and  Non-communicable Diseases. Gender and human resources for health are crosscutting, reflected throughout the organization’s health portfolio.  Our organization also engages in clinical outreach interventions and emergency programs including nutrition and resilience building of affected the continent: maternal and child care, HIV & TB, malaria, clean water and sanitation and surgical and clinical outreach.

Amref Health Africa in Ethiopia is working towards safely managed water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for all in Ethiopia.WASH Alliance International (WAI) WASH Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) supports communities, government, and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and microfinance institutes (MFIs) to work together. So that communities plan and manage WASH facilities themselves, SMEs provide affordable WASH services and the government effectively coordinates and provides WASH services.

The project implementing in 10 rural and semi-rural areas in Shashemene and Arsi Negelle districts of West Arsi Zone, Oromia Region. The WASH SDG project is designed to contribute to meet the SDG 6 target through ensuring sustainable access and use of WASH facilities in the targeted communities of the Woredas. These objectives are met through the introduction of MFIs in the communities, private sector engagement, government-led, climate resilient WASH services and system change approach. The most important step, however, is triggering these households into demanding WASH services, i.e. making them to understand why WASH is needed and how they continue to benefit from it when implemented.

Implementation Modality

As being a new and innovative approach, the implementation modality of the project somehow goes beyond the business as usual approach.  The WASH SDG programme is built on three core strategic objectives:

·       Increasing demand for improved WASH facilities and practices.

·       Improving the quality of service provision.

·       Improving governance of the sector.

Gender and social inclusion will be areas of specific attention in each of the 3 strategic objectives as well as climate vulnerability and resilience. The project will work towards the three strategic objectives through market-based and community-based solutions, public sector leadership, social accountability and empowered communities and civil society. Once capacitated and committed to jointly improve WASH, women and men, households, businesses, financial institutions and governments will generate a sustainable service delivery system, paving the road for acceleration. This will decrease external subsidies and even make them redundant over time and accelerates access to WASH services for a growing population
