Humanitarian situation and needs:

The serious and deteriorating political, human rights and socio-economic crisis in Venezuela has produced one of the most severe displacement situations in Latin America and in the world. According to official figures, some 4.5 million Venezuelans have left their country and most of them are in Latin American or Caribbean countries. This figure could reach 6.5 million people by end of 2020 worldwide.

The economic crisis in Venezuela has eroded the country’s health-care infrastructure and threatened the public health of its people. Shortages in medications, health supplies, interruptions of basic utilities at health-care facilities, and the emigration of health-care workers have led to a progressive decline in the operational capacity of health care. These limitations have disproportionally affected the most vulnerable populations, including children, pregnant women, elderly, people with chronic diseases and remote communities. The effect of the crisis on public health has been difficult to measure since the Venezuelan Ministry of Health stopped publishing crucial public health statistics in 2016. From 2012 to 2017, maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity increased by 66 % and 51% respectively, requiring the strengthening of sexual and reproductive health services. At the beginning of 2019’s rainy season, malaria and dengue outbreaks were reported in Táchira and Zulia, which remains a significant threat to bordering countries given the migratory movements. In Colombia, for example, by June 2019 133,078 malaria cases were reported in Bolívar, 38,947 cases in Sucre, and 20,401 cases in Amazonas. Between 2017 and 2019, most patients who were infected with HIV interrupted therapy because of a lack of medications. By September 2019 the number of measles and diphtheria cases dropped by 92.2 % due to vaccination campaigns held by international organizations, compared to 2018. For other health conditions data is not current available. For example, 70% of the deaths in Venezuela were due to non-communicable diseases by 2016, such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension and chronic respiratory diseases. The number of preliminary tuberculosis cases date from 2018, when 10,575 new cases were reported.

Outbreaks and expanding epidemics of infectious diseases associated with declines in basic public health services are threatening the health of the country and the region. In Colombia, many of the 1.4 million Venezuelans have walked along the migration routes with no access to health services, which leads the most common conditions (dehydration, superficial wounds, waterborne diseases, etc.) to worsen and increases the risk of further complications. Furthermore, PWSN (such as pregnant women, people with disabilities, newborns and elderly people) and those with chronic health conditions are also unable to access to the medical treatment that their conditions require.

Recently, some specialized health centers near the Venezuelan border in Colombia, Brazil and Guyana were equipped with pharmaceutical and medical-surgical material and supplies.

Our action in the field:

Following exploratory missions in the region, PUI aims to launch its humanitarian project covering health sector and develop its positioning and operational strategy in the region for 2020.

 

As part of our activities in the Venezuelan Crisis, we are looking for a Health Coordinator.

The Medical Coordinator is responsible for the success of the mission’s medical strategy and the quality of current and future medical programmes at the definition, implementation and evaluation phases. He/She provides support to programme managers (RDB and RT – field officers) who report to them on the basis of a dotted-line relationship.

Tasks and activities: 

    • Strategy: Working alongside the Head of Mission and cooperating closely with the HQ Health Department, he/she contributes to the development of new medical initiatives for the mission. He/She carries out epidemiological monitoring for the country and analyses strengths and weaknesses from a public health perspective.
    • Programmes: He/She ensures that medical programme(s) are in line with PUI’s health policy and framework, and he/she monitors them for quality and efficacy.
    • Representation: He/She represents the association to partners, authorities and local stakeholders involved in implementing health programmes.
    • Human Resources / Training: He/She supervises the health coordination team (PUI employees), provides support to programme managers for recruiting technical staff and supervises technical training activities on the basis of identified needs.
    • Logistics and Administration: He/She ensures the activities for which he/she is responsible comply with logistical and administrative procedures.
  • Safety: He/She contributes to compliance with safety rules within the mission and communicates any safety-related information to the Head of Mission. He/She ensures healthcare is provided for expatriate staff involved in the mission.
