Health and Care Officer at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)

Posted on Wed 27th May, 2020 - hotnigerianjobs.com --- (0 comments)


The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is the world's largest humanitarian network and is guided by seven Fundamental Principles: Humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, universality and unity.

We are recruiting to fill the position below:

Job Title: Health and Care Officer

Vacancy No: IFRC04041
Location: Abuja
Duration: 6 Months
Category of Staff: National Staff

Organizational Context

  • The Secretariat of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is organized into four Business groups in Geneva and five Business Groups in the field, namely the Regional Offices for Africa, Americas, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, and Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
  • The Africa Regional Business Group is organized through cluster offices covering the National Societies in Eastern Africa, West Coast Cluster, Southern Africa, Sahel and Central Africa as well as country offices in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Republic of South Sudan, Chad, Guinea, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia.
  • The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, in its commitment to building strong National Societies and to supporting scaling up of National Societies’ services to the most vulnerable populations, has in 2013 established a Country cluster Office in Nigeria. This Cluster Office is charged with the responsibility of supporting the National societies of Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria and Togo in developing their long-term strategic direction and generating resources to support a framework designed to address the needs of individuals and communities across a range of service delivery areas particularly focused on health and disaster risk management.

Rapidly increasing demand for care of people with COVID-19 is compounded by fear, misinformation and limitations on the movement of people and supplies that disrupt the delivery of frontline health care for all people.
