BACKGROUND

Support and care for EVD Survivors was identified as one of the pillars of the President Ebola Recovery Plan (10-24 months) for Health. As a consequence, a presidential mandate was released in November 2015 to provide free healthcare to all EVD survivors; and in 2016 the government has established the Comprehensive Program for Ebola Survivors (CPES) co-led by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation and the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs through a Program Implementation Unit (PIU).

The Ministry of Health and Sanitation, in collaboration with the USAID-funded Advancing Partners & Communities project, has begun in October 2017 the implementation of phase 2 of the CPES program seeking to build on the achievements gained since the beginning of the program to strengthen further the health system.

The MOHS is hereby seeking to recruit qualified 1 candidate for the position of Clinical Training Officer in BOMBALI District
