Job Title: National Partnership Advisor, Alive & Thrive Nigeria

Requisition: 2020200329
Location: Abuja, Nigeria
Job type: Full time
Supervisor: Project Director, Alive & Thrive Project / Nigeria

Project Summary

  • Alive & Thrive is an initiative to save lives, prevent illness, and ensure healthy growth and development through improved breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices. In its first five years (2009 to 2014), A&T demonstrated that innovative approaches to improving feeding practices could be delivered with impact and at scale in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Viet Nam.
  • Alive & Thrive continues its work there and is supporting others to scale up nutrition by applying and adapting tested, proven approaches and tools in Burkina Faso, India, Southeast Asia, and Nigeria. In Nigeria, Alive & Thrive supports the roll-out of the National SBCC Strategy for IYCF (2017) for specific evidence-based approaches. Alive & Thrive is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the governments of Canada and Ireland.

Position Summary

  • The A&T Nigeria National Partnership Advisor will work as part of the A&T Nigeria senior technical leadership team led by the Project Director.
  • The National Partnership Advisor is responsible for providing linkages with new networks in the Essential newborn care and RMNCH sectors, partnerships with new consultative groups and technical working groups that exclusively deal with saving newborn lives and collaboration with neonatal health groups and stakeholders.
  • The goal is to reach all states through existing or newly establish newborn care initiatives in addition to what our country team is doing with nutrition-focused entities in Nigeria.  
  • The geographic focus of this position will be 36 states of Nigeria, rather than the 2 states where other members of the country team will focus. A&T’s support will be viewed as rolling out one of the key components of the Nigerian Every Newborn Action Plan (FMOH, 2016).
  • This position helps A&T Nigeria provide rapid and deep engagement with a new range of well-established maternal, newborn and child health initiatives, networks and institutions to reach national scale with sustainable and effective breastfeeding interventions.
  • The position will also ensure that strong bonds and partnerships are established to support A&T’s inputs for the National policy as well as with other newborn health, RMNCH and breastfeeding -related programs in the public, private / commercial, and NGO sectors.

Program Summary

  • The Nigeria A&T breastfeeding and IYCF social and behavior change program focuses on improving rates of early initiation of breastfeeding, exclusive breastfeeding, timely introduction of complementary feeding, and minimum dietary diversity for infants over 6 months old.
  • A&T will work across the public, commercial / private, and NGO sectors to improve breastfeeding and IYCF through A&T’s four components: advocacy, interpersonal communication and community mobilization, mass communication, and strategic use of data.
  • At the national level, A&T will predominantly work with a selected group of public, private / commercial, and NGO sector partners (Every Newborn Action Plan, RMNCH, UNICEF, USAID/MCSP, Scaling Up Nutrition, SOGON, PAN, NANMs and other multi-state or national entities) to improve the implementation, monitoring, and enforcement of key IYCF policies (Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes; maternity leave; work place support; breastfeeding-friendly public and private health care and delivery facilities).
  • A&T will also work in two states—Lagos (metropolitan) and Kaduna (urban and rural)—to roll out the National SBCC Strategy for IYCF at state level, applying A&T’s proven four components to reach households, communities, and facilities with targeted, age-appropriate social and behavior change communication (SBCC) support and messaging on IYCF practices.
