NATIONAL POST: Programme Analyst-SRH (NOB) South Sudan

Level: NOB

Contract Type: Fixed Term Appointment

Closing date:04 Oct 2021

Duty station: Bentiu, South Sudan


South Sudan continues to be faced with persistent humanitarian crises. Currently, an estimated 8.3 million people require humanitarian assistance, up from 7.5 million in 2020. About 1.62 million are internally displaced, 123,000 people are in displacement camps formerly Protection of Civilian sites and 2.2 million South Sudanese Refugees in neighbouring countries. It is estimated that 5.8 million people are acutely food insecure, with 483,000 and 1.4 million women and children, respectively, malnourished. The humanitarian situation is worsened by high levels of food insecurity, sub-national violence that disrupt humanitarian services and impact people’s access to livelihoods and basic services, flooding in most parts of the country, and COVID-19 has continued to pose a challenge in South Sudan.

The presence of UNFPA in the State is crucial in terms of providing coordination leadership for SRH and GBV to the myriad of humanitarian actors present in the State; mobilising resources and partners to respond to the massive SRH and GBV needs, as well as working with the local government to support rebuilding the local health system, which is weak.
