Health Delegate Morocco and Regional Health Focal Point MENA (m/f/d), Morocco

GRC is seeking a Health Delegate Morocco and Regional Health Focal Point MENA (m/f/d). The delegate will be based in Rabat, Morocco, and provide technical health support to GRC project countries in the MENA region. Together with the Moroccan Red Crescent Society (MRCS), GRC successfully implements programmes since 2012.

The relief and recovery operation in response to the earthquake is currently being implemented with funding from the German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO), GRC own funds and third-party funding. While the current activities address emergency needs of the affected population, the recovery phase will focus on DRR and health. Additionally, this programme is complemented with capacity strengthening measures for MRCS. An additional project on National Society Development and community health is being implemented with BMZ funding.

The position comprises two areas of responsibility:

  1. The delegate will be responsible for the project management and technical follow-up of a community-based health and first aid (CBHFA) project implemented by Moroccan Red Crescent Society (MRCS) with financial support from GRC. The delegate will be required to provide technical support and to assist MRCS in related capacity strengthening efforts.
  2. In addition, the delegate will act as GRC Health Focal Point for the MENA region and provide operational and technical advice to GRC-supported projects with health components in the MENA region.

The tasks of this new function will take up around 30% of working hours. The delegate will coordinate closely with the GRC Regional Office in Beirut, Lebanon and the GRC Health Unit in Berlin HQ.
