Project Manager (national position)

Juba (South Sudan)

 

Project Manager (national position)

 
South Sudan, the world’s youngest country, celebrated its independence in 2011. The hope for a peaceful future brought by independence was not to last, however. In December 2013, violent confrontations between the government and opposition forces were already beginning. Since then, 2.5 million South Sudanese people have been forced to flee their homes and villages, almost half of the population does not have enough to eat, and therefore, the risk that infectious diseases, such as cholera and measles, will spread is rising. In some regions, the already completely inadequate medical infrastructure has completely collapsed.
 
Malteser International has been working in what is now South Sudan since 1996 – above all in the health sector. In recent years, the original focus on the care of patients with tuberculosis and sleeping sickness, and the provision of basic medical care have been expanded to include programs in the fields of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Food and Nutrition Security (FNS).
 
Malteser International is planning to scale up its intervention at Juba, South Sudan; and as a part of this process the organisation has submitted a new project proposal to a prospective donor.
