Save the Children works in more than 120 countries. We save children’s lives. We fight for their rights. We help them fulfil their potential.
Regional Health Adviser based in our Asia Region
Between now and 2015, we have dedicated our organisation to supporting the achievement of Millennium Development Goal 4, a two-thirds reduction in the rate of under five mortality. Our health programmes are key to this goal and we are seeking to dramatically expand the scale and impact of our work, both direct interventions with communities, support to health systems at district and national level and policy, advocacy and campaigns.
The Regional Health Adviser will provide support to Save the Children country offices in the Asia region for the design and delivery of high-quality health programmes, as part of our EVERY ONE newborn and child survival campaign. This new post will play a critical role in raising new resources to support health programmes, based on our theory of change and the three pillars of child rights programming.
For this post, we are looking for a credible and authoritative voice on all aspects of health policy with emphasis on maternal, newborn and child health and health system strengthening. You will be effective in all aspects of health situation analyses, programming cycle, fundraising proposals, policy analysis, advocacy, recruitment, capacity-building, knowledge management and networking within both development and emergency contexts. You will also support health-related HIV work. Support will be delivered both from a distance and through regular visits.
Based in Singapore or an appropriate location in Asia
