The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The International Rescue Committee has been working in Somalia since 2006, providing essential services to conflict and disaster affected communities. The IRC has been operational in Central Somalia (Mudug and Galgadud regions) and Mogadishu implementing interventions in the areas of livelihood, WASH, Governance and peacebuilding, GBV, Nutrition, education and health reaching out to more than 200,000 conflict and drought affected people.
Under the administrative and technical supervision of the Deputy Health Coordinator, the Heath Manager will be the focal point for health care services in Mogadishu. S/he will ensure the implementation of a quality health program for IDPs, returnees and host population, in accordance with acceptable national and international standards. S/he will provide technical oversight to field-based health staff in the area of primary, secondary and reproductive health, with emphasis on coaching national staff to build their capacity. The Health Manager will monitor improvement of all health indicators as per SPHERE/UNICEF/WHO standards in Somalia.
The Health Manager will receive guidance and technical support from the Health Coordinator in the absence of the Deputy Health Coordinator.
