Key aspects of the role
The incumbent is responsible for project management expertise to enhance implementation of the Global Eliminate Yellow Fever Epidemics (EYE) strategy. In close collaboration with EYE governance entities (e.g., technical working groups, programme management and leadership groups, regional implementation teams), the incumbent will contribute to the planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the EYE strategy’s technical and operational plans for 2022, and to associated coordination efforts. This includes tracking the implementation of key activities, outputs, strategic objectives and use of resources in close consultation with related teams at WHO headquarters and regional levels, and with relevant partners to ensure the effective delivery of the 2022 work plan.
