Job Number: 510059 | Vacancy Link

Work Type : Consultancy
UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children’s rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world.
How can you make a difference?
Background
Cholera is transmitted through food or water contaminated with toxigenic Vibrio cholerae. A 2012 review of cholera’s global burden estimated that 1.4 billion people are at risk for cholera, with 2.8 million cases and 91,000 related deaths in endemic regions annually (Ali 2012). The burden of cholera is disproportionately borne by the young, with children under five having the highest incidence of cholera and contributing almost half of the mortality (Ali 2012). UNICEF is committed to reduce under five mortality while the West Africa region has shown little progress up to now.
Since 2009, the UNICEF regional office pays special attention to cholera issues in the region. Studies to understand the epidemiology of the disease and to feed risk reduction and response strategies were conducted in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Guinea Bissau, Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon, and Chad. Since 2013, the UNICEF regional office has entered in a partnership with ECHO as part of a regional program to contribute to the elimination of cholera in the region. In April 2017, UNICEF has signed a new contract agreement with ECHO for a total amount of around 1 million euros.
