PUI recruits 01 Administrative and Financial Coordinator
Première Urgence Internationale is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 190 projects per year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 7 million people in 21 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.
Humanitarian situation and needs:
Myanmar was ruled by a military junta for decades. The first general election in 20 years was held in 2010. This was hailed by the junta as an important step in the transition from military rule to a civilian democracy. A civilian government led by President Thein Sein was installed in March 2011. Despite this inauspicious start to Myanmar’s new post-junta phase, a series of reforms in the months since the new government took up office has led to hopes that decades of international isolation could be coming to an end. Myanmar still remains one of the poorest country in the world, ranking 152 (1,272 USD per capita in 2017) in the GDP per capita worldwide and 145 in UNDP human development index (2016). Although there is a lack of reliable health data, it is commonly agreed that Myanmar has some of the worst health indicators in South-East Asia. The ethnic areas, that have been off-access for decades, are amongst the most vulnerable regions in Myanmar with a very low literacy rate resulting in various challenges such as education, health services, livelihood, and food insecurity. The largest ethnic group is the Bamar people. Bamar dominance over Karen, Shan, Rakhine, Mon, Rohyinga, Chin, Kachin and other minorities has been the source of considerable ethnic tensions and has fueled intermittent protests and separatist rebellions. Military offensives against insurgents have uprooted many thousands of civilians in the last decades. Ceasefire deals signed in late 2011 and early 2012 with rebels of the Karen and Shan ethnic groups suggested a new determination to end the long-running conflicts, as did Chinese-brokered talks with Kachin rebels in February 2013.
In 2015, a National Cease-fire Agreement (NCA) was signed with most of the ethnic organizations at the border of the country, leading to real opportunities to access Non State Actors (NSA) areas. The negotiations to broaden this NCA are still ongoing and represent a major challenge for the country and the stability of some border states. Indeed, since 2011, armed conflict between the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw) and the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) has provoked the displacement of around 90,000 civilians to 136 camps across Kachin State.
The year 2017 has been marked by a radical deterioration of the northern Rakhine situation. A large number of people from all communities have been affected by the violence, burning of villages and massive displacement that resulted from the 25 August 2017 attacks and subsequent security operations in the northern part of the State. As of February 2018, a total of 688,000 people have been reported to have arrived in Bangladesh since the 25 August attacks.
Our actions in the field:
PUI has worked for 30 years with various communities in Myanmar to improve access to primary healthcare and reproductive health services, as well as to promote appropriate practices for health and hygiene in remote areas and among vulnerable groups (mother and children, population at risk or with HIV/AIDS). In close collaboration with local health authorities, PUI contributes to develop community health networks, reinforce their capacities and strengthen their integration within the governmental health system. Innovative strategies such as m-Health (mobile health), as well as cultural and conflict-sensitive approaches are fostered to leverage the health services provided, overcome barriers that limit access and stimulate demand for services. While focusing mainly on health programmes in Myanmar, PUI’s strategy for 2018-2020 is to focus its activities on emergency and to develop integrated approaches in order to respond to the most urgent needs of conflict affected population and people affected by natural disasters.
PUI currently works in partnership with the Global Fund to provide prevention, care and treatment to high risks groups of population affected by HIV and Sexually Transmissible Infections (STI) in South Yangon townships and in Mandalay Region.
In 2019, PUI will be implementing a Pilot AFD funded project in the Kayin State. This project will look at sustainably integrated approach to improve resilience and access to basic services through the creation of a conducive environment and inclusive interventions. This project will be implemented with local partners.
