Overall Responsibilities

The LINKAGES Project, with USAID support, has been active in Madagascar since 1997 and to date has developed a highly effective program of nutrition behavior change communication at all levels - from national to district to community.  Key aspects of the program include: national level work in nutrition policy and analysis, Baby Friendly Workplace, mass media and Pre-service Curricula Reform for the Essential Nutrition Actions, regional/district level work in the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative as well community level work promoting improved infant feeding practices with partners such as the ministry of health, JSI, PVO/NGOs, Seecaline and UNICEF.

From mid 2002 the LINKAGES Madagascar program will be modified to adapt to recent changes in the health sector that shall result in a scaling down of community level activities, particularly the field partnership with JSI.  A revised Workplan that continues national activities (especially national policy coordination, pre-service curricula reform and Baby Friendly Workplace), regional/district level activities (BFHI) and scaled down community activities will be developed in April/May 2002.  

It is envisaged that LINKAGES will retain local staff in its Antananarivo office (Adminstrative/Finance Staff, and technical staff in Mass Media, M/E, Pre-service Curricula and Baby Friendly Workplaces) as well as a   limited number of out-posted district staff (Technicien de Nutrition) to implement our work with field partners.   The duration of this Workplan will be from May 2002 through October 2003.

It is anticipated that the Project Coordinator will be posted in the LINKAGES Antananarivo office to oversee the implementation of the LINKAGES Workplan during the period from June 2002 through October 2003.  

The key role of the Project Coordinator will be to ensure the day-to-day implementation of the workplan through hands-on involvement as well as the supervision of local LINKAGES Technical and Support staff.  Technical oversight of LINKAGES program in Madagascar will primarily be the responsibility of the LINKAGES Regional Advisor based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  This oversight will be provided by the Regional Advisor through regular email contact as well as through quarterly visits to Madagascar. In turn the Regional Advisor will report to and work in close consultation with the Country Program Technical Manager in LINKAGES/DC on program development, technical issues and other administrative and financial points requiring direction and support from headquarters.

The Project Coordinator is expected to ensure the smooth implementation of the LINKAGES/Madagascar program according to the Workplan through active oversight and trouble shooting of both program field activities as well as administrative and financial matters.

The Project Coordinator will need to be able to work 'long-distance' under the direction of the Regional Advisor based in Addis Ababa and the Country Program Technical Manager based in Washington D.C..  Thus a high level of organization skills and constant communication will be necessary. Flexibility to changing field circumstances, a positive 'solution finding' attitude is also essential.  Visits to the field will also be expected.

It is envisaged that this position will best be filled by an emerging professional who seeks 'on-the-job' experience and mentoring provided by senior LINKAGES staff based in the region and in Washington.

Specific responsibilities of the Project Coordinator will include, but are not limited to, the following:

*Responsible for coordinating the implementation and monitoring of LINKAGES Workplan activities at the national, regional/district and community levels which shall specifically include scheduling, supervision and providing logistical support;

*Work under the technical supervision of LINKAGES Regional Advisor in Addis Ababa and LINKAGES/DC staff to develop and coordinate any technical assistance needed to implement the Workplan as well as to develop new initiatives which may arise;

*Provide day-to-day supervision of LINKAGES Malagasy Staff to implement the Workplan;  employee evaluations of local staff shall be a joint responsibility with the LINKAGES Regional Advisor based in Addis Ababa;

*Serve as LINKAGES representative with USAID, the GOM, UNICEF, the JSI bilateral project, and other relevant groups (including WHO, the World Bank, MOST, CARE, CRS, and the Peace Corps) to ensure the implementation of the LINKAGES Workplan.

*Liaise with LINKAGES/DC Staff (Program Associate and Finance/Administration Team) to ensure smooth operation and timely financial reporting for in-country activities

*Manage in-country project funds for LINKAGES, including the signing of checks and monthly impress report, oversee monthly Financial Reporting to LINKAGES/DC, and arrange other financial actions as required;

*Prepare monthly, quarterly and annual program reports and annual workplan, and others as required, for LINKAGES/DC;

*With the Regional Advisor based in Addis Ababa and the Country Program Technical Manager based in Washington/DC, assist in preparation of reports requested by USAID/Madagascar;

*Oversee the coordination of all monitoring and evaluation (M&E) activities with the Malagasy M/E Officer with technical input coming from the Regional Advisor and the LINKAGES/DC M/E Team.  

Qualifications

*Masters degree required, with a specialization in public health or nutrition preferred.

*Three years oversees experience in managing a public health program in a developing country in Africa, ideally with Madagascar experience, including planning, monitoring/evaluation as well as budget oversight.

*Relevant experience in maternal-child nutrition and/or maternal-child health programs, breastfeeding promotion and/or micronutrients.

*Demonstrated ability and a willingness to handle administrative/financial procedures.

*Experience with participatory facilitation skills (e.g. VIPP);
