Handicap International recruits 01 MHPSS TECHNICAL COORDINATOR



HI has been operating in South Sudan since 2006, implementing emergency and development actions aimed at improving protection, quality of life, and the promotion of rights of vulnerable individuals, including people with physical disabilities.

HI’s current operations are centred in POCs (protection of civilian sites) and IDP camps outside Juba city and in three greater states: Yei, Torit and Yambio with the Country Office based in Juba city.

During 2019, HI is planning to establish a base in the greater Unity, which remains the most conflict and disability affected region of the whole country. The operational context in South Sudan today is considered largely humanitarian/emergency while phasing in resilience programming. The ongoing peace initiatives if they succeed might result in huge population movements of returnees (both IDPs and refugees) across the country.


HI’s present interventions address both emergency and resilience needs.

Since 2016, HI has been operating an emergency mobile (or flying) unit responding to MHPSS (Mental Health & Psychosocial Support) and disability rehabilitation assistance in the greater Upper Nile, Unity and Jonglei states. Overall, about 50,000 direct beneficiaries (people with disability and other most vulnerable) are being targeted through MHPSS and Livelihood projects, with a strong emphasis on mainstreaming disability inclusion. As part of its 2019-2021 strategy, HI South Sudan is prepositioning to deepen programming in Protection, to expand its program interventions in Health (MHPSS), Education in Emergency (EIE) and Food Security & Livelihoods (FSL).


HI is increasingly viewed as a leader in the South Sudan MHPSS humanitarian sub-cluster and in Disability Inclusion. In 2015, HI facilitated the enactment of the South Sudan National Government Disability policy. Under current programming, HI is working to facilitate enacting of a framework for dissemination and implementation of the policy


The MHPSS Technical Coordinator position is therefore a critical function to HI programming at this juncture, seeking to deepen and increase the reach and impact of current MHPSS programming, while prepositioning HI to play a bigger and more visible role in Protection.
