Terms of reference
Job Title: Head of Mission – Yemen
Duty station: Sanaa and Aden (roving)
Starting date: 01/01/2020
Contract duration: 12 months (renewable)
Reporting to: Regional Director
Supervision of: Directly of 3 Expat Staff & 5 national staff; over 600 staff in total
General context of the project
Yemen entered its fourth year of war, with chronic vulnerabilities exacerbated, leaving an estimated 22.2 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, 2 million IDPs and 956,100 Returnees. Yemen is facing one of the largest food and protection emergencies in the world, entirely man-made. Continued hostilities in the country are brutal on civilians, who bear the brunt of ongoing airstrikes and localized fighting. The ongoing military campaign has destroyed the economy and moved an already weak and impoverished country towards social, economic, financial and institutional collapse.
In Yemen, INTERSOS has been engaged since 2008, providing protection assistance to refugees and migrants (mostly but not exclusively from the Horn of Africa). Since 2015 INTERSOS scaled up its operations to ensure a robust response to the IDPs crisis and the needs of other conflict affected Yemenis, and also expanded its geographical scope (covering Aden, Taiz, Hajja, Ibb, Hadramout and Lahj). INTERSOS’ protection programming for IDPs and conflict affected Yemenis focused on provision of emergency protection services: protection monitoring, provision of legal assistance, general case management services for GBV/PwSN/CP, including provision of cash assistance, rental subsidies, material assistance, livelihoods and life skills trainings. Moreover, from 2015 onwards INTERSOS started to implement health programming (with integration of nutrition), based on a needs-analysis of the conflict- affected communities in Yemen: with the rapidly collapsing Yemeni health care system, it has been paramount to support partially and non-functional health facilities to prevent total collapse/meltdown of health care system. Such programme includes: immunization, ANC, PNC, BEmONC, IMCI, OPD screening for malnutrition, treatment of SAM cases, health education, deworming, vitamin A supplementation and referral services. Besides attention for EPHC, INTERSOS ensures also attention for Secondary Health care to ensure referral services, while supporting the WHO/MOPHP strategy to ensure the minimum service package (MSP).
