Job Summary:

The Position:

The Humanitarian Analyst is responsible for overseeing, planning and assisting implementation of humanitarian activities in the context of the UNFPA Country Programme for Egypt. You will analyze the sexual and reproductive health needs of people affected by emergencies, provide guidance in building resilience to advance sustainable development priorities, and manage projects for the targeted populations.

Job Purpose:

The total number of Syrians in Egypt is estimated by the government to be 250,000 – 300,000, and are mainly concentrated in focus areas within Cairo (50%) and Alexandria (20%), and to a lesser extent in Damietta (11%) and Dakahlia (7%).

Despite the government regulations on Syrians free access to PHC units, barriers exist with regards to quality of services, as well as their accessibility, with possible effect on sexual and reproductive health, including sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) and family planning (FP) on affected populations. Protection challenges identified by Syrian refugees included widespread SGBV and harassment, trauma and need for psychosocial support, child protection and security threats related to local criminality and exploitation. The current political turmoil in the region will further compromise the situation of Syrian refugees, making interventions more necessary than ever.
