National Humanitarian Program Analyst Jobs Description
The protracted conflict in South Sudan has impacted the lives of civilian populations of the world’s youngest country. The situation of the civilian population is characterized by massive displacements, the ubiquitous presence of armed actors, high levels of insecurity and a struggle to meet basic survival needs. Violence, human rights violations, and abuses continue in several counties due to active hostilities in key conflict areas. Conflict-affected populations have tried to reach safer areas with a significant increase in the number of displaced people, particularly in Unity, Upper Nile, Jonglei States and Greater Bahr el-Ghazal States.
South Sudan is the world’s country with the highest maternal mortality (1.200/100.000 live births) making SRH in general and access to quality EMoNC and absolute priority. The multiple logistic challenges make the availability of medical supplies an important focus of UNFPA investment.
Gender-based violence (GBV) is one of the most critical threats to the protection and well-being of women and children in South Sudan. GBV, which was prevalent before the conflict, is now reaching epidemic proportions. According to the Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO), 2.8 million people, the majority of whom are women and girls, are victims of some form of sexual violence and GBV, such as child marriage and rape, during their lifetime. Other forms of GBV include sexual assault, physical assault, forced marriage, denial of resources and emotional abuse.
The country is facing multiple outbreaks of infectious diseases. In February 2023, the National Ministry of Health declared a cholera outbreak in the town of Malakal in Upper Nile State. Since then, 1,351 cases have been recorded, including 2 deaths. The arrival of thousands of returnees and refugees fleeing the conflict in Sudan and passing through or staying in Malakal could contribute to a sudden spread of the disease.
Similarly, there is persistent transmission of hepatitis E virus (HEV) in Bentiu, Unity State. According to the National Ministry of Health, 4,123 cases have been recorded since this transmission was identified in 2019. Additionally, the National Ministry of Health declared an outbreak of HEV in Wau, Western Bahr el- Ghazal State in March 2023. Since then, 148 of the cases have been recorded including 6 deaths. The case fatality rate is 4.23%. Pregnant women with hepatitis E, particularly those in the second or third trimester, are at increased risk of acute liver failure, fetal loss and mortality. Up to 20–25% of pregnant women can die if they get hepatitis E in the third trimester.
Furthermore, measles outbreak continues in several States. According to the National Ministry of Health, 6,046 have so far been recorded.
UNFPA is supporting health facilities including basic and comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (EmONC) facilities in Malakal that provide integrated reproductive health (RH) and GBV services including infection prevention and control interventions. UNFPA interventions entail accessible health services; social safety nets; and the economic empowerment for women, girls and youth that have contributed to improving the knowledge and skills of women, girls, men, and boys to address the risks and consequences of GBV and to facilitate their access to quality integrated services in a timely and coordinated manner.
