Job Description

Background UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply.

All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence. UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination.

All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life.

We are on the ground in 170 countries and territories, working with Governments and people on their own solutions to global and national development challenges to help empower lives and build resilient nations.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the pledge to leave no one behind reflect the interconnectedness of health and sustainable development issues such as the widening economic and social inequalities, the climate crisis, rapid urbanization, the continuing burden of HIV and other infectious diseases (e.

g., malaria, tuberculosis, COVID.19), the growing burden of non-communicable diseases and the emergence of health threats.

The scope and scale of delivering health and well-being for all demands innovative partnerships and financing.

UNDP’s partnership with the Global Fund (GF), in line with UNDP’s HIV, Health and Development Strategy 2016-2021 : Connecting the Dots, makes a vital contribution to UNDP’s Strategic Plan 2018-2021, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the pledge to leave no one behind.

When requested, UNDP acts as interim Principal Recipient (PR), working with national partners and the Global Fund to ensure management, implementation and oversight of GF grants, while simultaneously strengthening health institutions and systems for national entities to assume the PR role over time.

In Angola, the Ministry of Health and UNDP have had a long-standing, strategic partnership for health service delivery through Global Fund grants.

Currently, UNDP is acting as the Principal Recipient for the 2018-2021 HIV Grant, in partnership with the National HIV / Aids Institute (INLS), other Government and Civil society partners.

UNDP exercises its PR role in consultation with other UN agencies, bilateral donors and International Financing Institutions.

In 2020-2021, UNDP will act as Principal Recipient for a consolidated HIV, malaria and tuberculosis Grant.

Most of the interventions planned in this Grant will be implemented at national level and in priority provinces based on their epidemiological burden.

However, a new sub-national approach will be introduced in Benguela province. Its objective is to expand the coverage of high-quality HIV, malaria and tuberculosis services for the most vulnerable populations : pregnant women, children under 5, adolescent girls and young women and key populations.

To that end, UNDP will intensify monitoring & evaluation, supply chain management and technical assistance efforts at all levels of the health system in Benguela province, including community, health facility and laboratories.

Lessons learned from the Benguela sub- national approach will inform the next Global Fund Funding cycle in Angola.
