Description

For more than 35 years, Médecins du Monde (MdM), a campaigning medical organisation committed to international solidarity, has been caring for the most vulnerable populations at home and abroad. It has continued to highlight obstacles that exist in accessing health care and has secured sustainable improvements in health-for-all policies. Those working for this independent organisation do not solely dispense care and treatment but condemn violations of human dignity and rights and fight to improve matters for populations living in precarious situations. MdM currently works in 35 countries across all continents where it focuses on 5 priority areas: caring for the health of migrants and displaced persons, promoting sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction associated with drug use and sexual practices, emergencies and crisis, and harmful environment.

MdM has been operating in Myanmar since 1994. Its main programmes deliver comprehensive Harm Reduction and HIV/AIDS prevention and care, focusing on the high risk groups of Drug Users (Kachin State), Sex Workers and Men having Sex with Men (Yangon area).

MdM is a well implemented and well recognised actor in the country by the authorities as well as by other stakeholders and donors. However, since 2017 it has been recognised that most of the activities are too much focused on the provision of medical services under-using MdM’s legitimacy and position in the country to be more involved in health-related right promotion and advocacy. The recent years gave more opportunities to MdM to be involved in several initiatives from the government to support efforts to improve the legal framework when it comes to the criminalisation of sex work and drug use and ensure a more enabling environment for scaling up national initiatives such as the Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) Program.

Currently, MdM is focusing on the following projects:

  • A comprehensive Harm Reduction programme aiming at increasing access to HIV/VHC prevention and care services, in Yangon and Kachin, targeting most-at-risk groups (sex workers, men having sex with men, drug users). The project is implemented with a comprehensive approach, including a wide range of activities for prevention (drop-in centres, outreach activities including harm reduction, methadone substitution therapy) and care (STI diagnosis and treatment, HIV diagnosis and treatment, including ARV).
  • In Kachin, the project is implemented in 3 main sites (Myitkyina, Moegaung, Hopin) and few sub-sites. Activities include health education in outreach, needles and syringe exchange programme, methadone substitution programme, counselling and HIV testing, and medical care for PLHIV (STI, OI, TB and ARV).
  • In Yangon, the project is implemented in one main site, with broad outreach activities. Current and future strategy focuses on supporting local civil society and health system in scaling up and provision of health services;

Those programmes are currently funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the French Development Agency (AFD), and the United States Agency for International Development known as USAID (through a sub-recipient mechanism); it is expected to develop new partnerships with new potential donors in the future.

There are over 250 collaborators and 150 community workers in the mission.

In the year to come, the Mission will have to focus its effort on preparing an operational shift (direct service provision to transfer of services towards institutions and partners) while scaling up and extending the offer of harm reduction services.


TASKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

The General Coordinator is responsible for the overall management of the MdM Myanmar mission and is under the direct supervision of the Desk Officer based in MdM Headquarters (HQ) in Paris.

Description

“Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations,
we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences,
where everyone can live in dignity”

Handicap International is changing his name and becomes « Humanity & Inclusion ». HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

For further information about the association: www.hi.org.

 

JOB CONTEXT:

The position of Regional Humanitarian advisor has been occupied during one year based in Dhaka under the supervision of the Bangladesh program. Given the current development of the Myanmar activities, it has been decided to base the position in Myanmar to support the positioning and advocacy activities in Myanmar while continuing implementing HI’s advocacy and positioning strategy in Bangladesh. The position is based in Yangon with regular travel to Sittwe and eventually to Bangladesh.

 

The MyTh (Myanmar Thailand) program was created in 2016 with the merge of 2 already existing missions. Setting up cross border initiatives and integrate the coming return of refugees from Thailand to Myanmar is at the heart of the regional strategy. In Thailand, HI started working in 1984 and first focused its actions on the delivery of mobility and assistive devices to Thai and Burmese landmine/ERW victims. HI currently implements activities in 9 camps of Burmese refugees on the Thailand/Myanmar border. Since the democratic transition in Myanmar started, the possibility of a progressive closure of the camps has become more tangible although for the time being figures are quite slow. It is expected that funding will be affected by this dynamic in the next future. HI's first activities in Myanmar were in the frame of the Cyclone Nargis's response, from October 2008 to December 2009. Following the ratification of the CRPD by the Myanmar authorities, HI decided to reopen a mission in Myanmar in 2014 and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Social Welfare in September 2015, which is currently under renewal. In 2017, HI also signed a MOU with the Ministry of Health and Sport was signed.

 

The 3 pillars of the HI MyTh Programme 2018-2019 are:

1/ Armed Violence Reduction (AVR) including Victim Assistance and community based Risk Education,

2/ Inclusion with projects covering: support to Disabled People Organisations and promotion of Rights; inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction, Child Development; Hospital Emergency Preparedness; livelihoods

3/ Health and Rehabilitation with project covering psychosocial and physical rehabilitation

 

HI has been working in Bangladesh since 1997, with a focus on creating sustainable changes in terms of ensuring rights and inclusion of people with disabilities in society.

In Cox Bazar’s district, HI has a strong knowledge and experience in chronic emergency response. In addition to projects implemented before the crisis, HI is now providing services in rehabilitation, protection and PSS, with an inclusive mainstreaming approach to refugees and host population. HI works does not only with people with disabilities but also with their families, their communities, and the society, in order to provide sustainability in its action.

 

Emergency context and needs in Cox’s Bazar

A high proportion of the Undocumented Myanmar Nationals (UNM) refugees in Cox’s Bazar remain in a chronic emergency situation due to long-term challenges to find a durable solution to their status in Myanmar and Bangladesh and therefore require continuous humanitarian assistance. The new influx, with more than 600,000 arrivals from August 2017, has created even more pressure on resources and increasing humanitarian needs. The host Bangladeshi communities are also affected by the presence of a large refugee population living in the region. The two sub-districts of Ukhiya and Teknaf, where the refugees are mostly residing, are vulnerable due to increased rates of poverty and lack of public and private services, scarce job opportunities and limited natural resources, among other key causes. In addition, this coastal region is continuously dealing with the impacts of natural disasters, mostly cyclones and floods, during which meagre assets of the local population are also damaged or destroyed. The humanitarian needs resulting from the Mora’s devastating impact and the new arrivals of refugees have not been fully met yet, and the cyclone season is expected to start soon.

Kachin State, in the northern part of Myanmar between China and India, has been affected by a conflict between the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) and the Myanmar Army (MMA) since early 1960’s, in the aftermath of Myanmar independence. A 17 year cease fire ended in 2011 with revived disputes and hostilities, triggering a massive internal displacement of more than 90.000 people to 120 IDP camps. While the latter are still displaced, new displacements regularly occur. In Myitkyina, HI is delivering assistance to improve living conditions of persons with disabilities affected by displacements and conflicts. 2 projects are under implementation in a total of 10 IDPs camps and 4 host communities in Myitkyina & Waingmaw Townships, aiming at improving the services and the humanitarian assistance to persons with disabilities through improved data collection and identification, improved inclusion of services delivered by humanitarian organizations, direct delivery of services to cover basic and specific needs of persons with disabilities and capacity building of partners.

CONTEXT
L'Institut Européen de Coopération et de Développement (IECD) is a French development organization operating in the field of international solidarity.

Today, IECD and its local partners implement several programs for professional integration support, access to education, support to small enterprises and health care projects.
IECD is active in 14 countries, in Middle East, Africa, South East Asia and Madagascar.
In the countries where IECD operates, a large proportion of the population does not have access – or very little – to education. It is particularly the case for women, but also for some ethnic minorities. Being poorly qualified, sometimes illiterate and socially marginalized, these individuals are often confined in the most precarious jobs.
In the countries where tourism is expanding, IECD thus chose to focus particularly on developing hospitality & catering training solutions for the underprivileged.
IECD studied the feasibility of launching vocational training projects in hospitality & catering in Myanmar since 2014.
As the first activities are planned for autumn 2016, IECD is looking for a volunteer to support the launch of operations.
