The Position:

How you can make a difference:
UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled. UNFPA’s strategic plan (2022-2025), reaffirms the relevance of the current strategic direction of UNFPA and focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices. These results capture our strategic commitments on accelerating progress towards realizing the ICPD and SDGs in the Decade of Action leading up to 2030. Our strategic plan calls upon UN Member States, organizations and individuals to “build forward better”, while addressing the negative impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on women’s and girls’ access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, recover lost gains and realize our goals.

Cameroon is facing three humanitarian crises; namely in the Far North as a result of extremist insurgency on the borders with Nigeria, and in the East Regions as a result of political and social unrest in the Central Africa Republic and finally in the English speaking regions of the North West and South West due to a secessionist movement. All three crises have a strong GBV dimension within the context of protection and access to reproductive health services and the vulnerability of women and especially young girls in volatile settings. In response to the humanitarian situation, UNFPA is working with government authorities, UN sister agencies and non-governmental organizations on the prevention and response to GBV as well as delivery of a comprehensive sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services to the affected population. UNFPA is delivering a response package that includes assisted delivery, obstetric care, family planning, GBV coordination, clinical management of rape, psychosocial support (PSS), case management, establishment of safe spaces for women and girls, and GBV prevention.

In a world where fundamental human rights are at risk, we need principled and ethical staff, who embody these international norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction.

UNFPA is seeking candidates that transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results; we need staff who are transparent, exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commit to deliver excellence in programme results.

Job Purpose:

The Information Management Analyst will maintain collaborative relationships with the government line ministries and departments, civil society constituents, the United Nations funds, programs and specialized agencies and other development organizations. The IMA will actively participate in inter-cluster meetings and when necessary, in other specific cluster meetings relevant to the GBV AoR, including but not restricted to the Protection Cluster, the Food Security Cluster, the CP AoR.
