ORGANIZATIONAL OVERVIEW

HealthRight International is a Global Health organization that empowers marginalized communities to live healthy lives, with a particular focus on four program areas: HIV/AIDS, Mental Health, Violence, and RMNCAH (Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent Health). Employing a human rights-based approach, HealthRight works closely with community-based partners to build local capacity and create sustainable programs that have a lasting impact. HealthRight leverages global resources to address local health challenges to create sustainable solutions. Since its founding in 1990 by the late Dr. Jonathan Mann, HealthRight has worked in over 30 countries, with current projects in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, and the United States. The Peter C. Alderman Program for Global Mental Health (PCAP) currently consists of mental health programming in Uganda, Kenya, and Ukraine. In Uganda, HealthRight implements mental health programs in collaboration with the Government of Uganda and other stakeholders.

JOB SCOPEAlcohol use in Humanitarian settings: The Project focus is to address alcohol use disorders and associated adversities among conflict-affected populations in Uganda and Ukraine (CHANGE). It is a joint collaboration between the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), HealthRight Uganda, and the University of Copenhagen. CHANGE is a five-year research project funded by the NIHR–Wellcome Partnership for Global Health Research. CHANGE seeks to develop a new psychological intervention to reduce alcohol use disorders (AUDs) and co-occurring psychological problems in conflict-affected populations. The intervention will build upon the World Health Organization’s (WHO) intervention “Problem Management Plus” (PM+) designed for populations exposed to adversity to provide individual psychological help for adults impaired by psychological distress (symptoms of depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)). We will complement PM+ by adding an additional psychological component addressing alcohol misuse (a new intervention called PM+A).

REQUIREMENTS

  • University degree in Social Sciences (i.e. social work, counseling, sociology, psychology, gender studies, human rights, etc.).
  • At least 2-3 years in-field experience within a Humanitarian, NGO/Agency in the same or similar position
  • Extensive experience providing psychotherapy to individuals and groups
  • Flexibility and adaptability to the changing environment
  • Skilled at working as a team member
  • Excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills
  • Demonstrate flexibility to adapt to changing requirements and needs
  • Ability to communicate sensitively and without judgment; good diplomatic and persuasion skills.
  • Ability to use good judgment when making decisions and to take accountability for decisions made.
  • Ability to handle multiple tasks; proven self-initiative and problem-solving abilities.
  • Good computer skills including Microsoft Excel, Word, Outlook, and PowerPoint.
  • Proficiency in English and Juba Arabic is required
