VA 08-2016 Programme Specialist HIVAIDS

The Sudan Country Programme (2013-2016) combines emergency preparedness, humanitarian response, conflict recovery, resilience and development support in an extremely complex political, logistical and security-compromised environment. The CP is designed around six integrated and inter-related outputs with an overall goal of improving maternal health in Sudan. Attention to population dynamics and gender are supportive strategies and the programme targets the most underserved populations, especially women and youth/adolescents. In the Sudan context, this means special attention to the displaced, conflict and environmentally affected communities, nomadic groups, refugees and urban migrants. It is operationalized through one head office in Khartoum, three sub-offices in Darfur and staff presence in other states. The Programme specialist – HIV/AIDS directly reports to the Assistant Representative under the overall leadership of the UNFPA Country Representative and Deputy Representative. The HIV Programme Specialist is responsible for the overall management of the HIV Program and supervises the HI/AIDSV unit team to establish functioning and effective HIV/AIDS team in the CO that will provide quality technical backstopping to all partners in the country.
