The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) plays a key role in the area of Adolescents Sexual and Reproductive Health (ASRH) in Mozambique. The programme’s goal is to improve the well-being of girls and women living with obstetric fistula (OF) in Mozambique. As gender inequalities faced by women and girls living with obstetric fistula is at the center of the proposed programme, it will contribute towards closing the gender gaps through treatment and prevention.
The programme has a duration of four years and is funded by the Government of Canada. The scope is nationwide, with specific focus in the provinces of Cabo Delgado, Nampula, Zambezia, Manica, Sofala and Maputo City. The programme is in line with national policies and strategies, in particular with the National Obstetric Fistula Prevention and Treatment Strategy (2012-2015- 2020) and the Mozambique RMNCAH Investment Case in the context of the Global Financing Facility (GFF). It focuses on childbirth complications within the context of sexual and reproductive health and rights – aiming to reduce the incidence and prevalence of obstetric fistula through a holistic and integrated approach.
The Ministry of Health (MoH) led the development of the strategy with its four pillars in the areas of advocacy, prevention, treatment and social reintegration; the Ministry of Gender, Child and Social Action was specifically involved in the area of social reintegration.
The Finance Associate post is located in UNFPA Maputo Country Office (CO) and under the overall guidance of the Country Representative, reports directly to the International Operations Manager, Maputo, Mozambique.
