There has been an influx of Burundian asylum seekers following the political unrest in Burundi since April 26, 2015. UNFPA Tanzania Country Office is playing a key role to respond to the reproductive health needs and sexual and gender based violence to the Burundian refugees and affected population. UNFPA is the member of the UN Humanitarian Working Group and two sub groups of Health and Protection that works in coordination to respond to the humanitarian situation in the country. Under the overall supervision of the UNFPA Tanzania CO Deputy Representative and reporting directly to the Assistant Representative, the incumbent will facilitate and coordinate the rapid implementation of RH programmes to address the reproductive health needs of the conflict affected population. The Emergency RH Coordinator’s duties should focus on supporting the country office in: providing technical assistance to implementation, monitoring and supervision of humanitarian-funded RH work plans with partners, building coalitions with the MOH and other organizations working in the Nyarugusu Refugee camps and Burundian refugee’s sites elsewhere in Kigoma region, monitoring and evaluation, documenting and reporting on the programme.
