Purpose of the position

The AFRO region conducted gender and equity inclusion studies of COVID-19 response plans for 43 countries (including 22 vaccination plans) this year as part of the support for boosting COVID-19 immunization in Africa. The analysis revealed that priority populations are typically defined in most nations based on physical or occupational weaknesses with little emphasis on intersectional gender, equity, and human rights factors. The Gender Mainstreaming for Health Managers and the Handbook for undertaking an assessment of the obstacles to adolescent health services are two technical publications of the WHO that are used in inclusion analyses. HQ is actively updating these two manuals to incorporate intersectionality-related strategies.

To meet these challenges, the Regional Office prioritized countries, deployed multidisciplinary teams of experts, produced data and evidence to support evidence-based public health decision making, and monitored the development, implementation, and monitoring of a Country Support Team Strategy.

To address inequities in service delivery with an emphasis on disparities in gender and sub-national geographic locations, and to scale-up COVID-19 vaccine service delivery among the highest priority risk groups in the four (4) regions of Cameroon.

In addition to the previously indicated four (4) regions, a modest cash investment is suggested to help WHO respond adaptably to changing demands in Cameroon, which has a low COVID-19 vaccination coverage rate and limited subnational capability.

Furthermore, the environment in Cameroon offers potential advantages to be taken advantage of, such as boosting political engagement, data improvement initiatives, opportunities to collaborate with humanitarian actors and streamline integration, and increased coverage in November 2022 national campaigns. By the end of December 2022, the government was expected to have achieved 40% of its national objective targets; as a result, it urgently needs assistance. To accomplish this, WHO has received funding from the Canadian government to scale-up the delivery of COVID-19 vaccine services among the highest priority risk groups in the four (4) regions of Cameroon, with a focus on community engagement, within the context of addressing service delivery inequities with a focus on disparities in gender and sub-national geographic locations.

The incumbent will collaborate with the Emergency Preparedness and Response, and Vaccines Preventable Diseases units in WHO country offices to ensure that no one is left behind in the delivery of COVID19 vaccination.

He/She will provide expert technical advice to conduct an evaluation of gender, equity and human rights considerations in the activies of vaccination and surveillance inpriority districts. Importantly, the incumbent will ensure intersectionality is central to the Leaving No-One Behind for reaching those furthest behind with COVID vaccines through analysis of intersectional gender factors that influences demand, uptake and acceptance of immunisation services.


Duties and Responsibilities

Under the coordination of the WHO representative and the supervision of the FP immunization, the incumbent is responsible for the following tasks:

Provide technical support for targeted and context specific gender, equity and human rights and intersectional analyses to identify at risk and vulnerable populations not included in previous national COVID vaccination strategies and plans and immunization in general.
Conduct assessments and vaccine hesitancy surveys to identify obstacles and develop differentiated delivery strategies to reach disadvantaged populations including gender diverse groups.
Conduct  advocacy and policy dialogues with stakeholders including women's and men's  groups to prioritize gender responsive interventions critical for improving coverage of COVID19 vaccination.
