GOAL believes in a world where poverty no longer exists, where vulnerable communities are resilient, where barriers to well-being are removed and where everyone has equal rights and opportunities. Join our team and help bring this vision to life.
General description of the program
GOAL has been responding to a wide range of humanitarian and development needs in Sudan since 1985 and in Darfur since 2004, and is currently supporting the provision of primary healthcare services across Kutum and Al-Waha localities, North Darfur.
GOAL is now starting to implement a European-Union / DEVCO-funded HealthPro Project, to implement a Health Systems Strengthening approach to hand over health facilities to sustainable management by the Sudanese health system. This 3-year action targets localities of Kutum, Serf Umra and Umbaro in North Darfur, working to increase the quality of, and demand for, health services. The action is organized around the WHO Health System building blocks, working to strengthen the Sudanese health system to sustainably provide quality services. This involves working with the State Ministry of Health and Locality Health Authorities (LHAs) to manage the health facilities, and other health system actors – notably the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) and the National Medical Supply Fund (NMSF) to fulfill their purchasing and medical supply roles in the health system. In addition, HealthPro will support Sudanese NGOs to roll out GOAL’s existing community-based preventative health and nutrition programming, using innovative, gender-inclusive Social Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) approaches, encouraging communities to place high value on health services and to translate knowledge into more healthy behaviours.

General Description of the Role
The HealthPro Social Accountability (SA) Coordinator will lead implementation of the project strategy related to community engagement, health promotion, and accountability, including partnerships with National NGOs and Community Health Committees, all of which are central to the overall project strategy. The SA Coordinator will lead the project actions to build and strengthen the communication and accountability linkages between communities and health system actors, as well as community-based health promotion and livelihoods activities implemented by GOAL and national NGO partners. Given the many inter-linkages between different components of the HealthPro project, all HealthPro staff will be expected to work effectively as a team and closely support the achievement of all project objectives. Reporting to the HealthPro Project Coordinator, the SA Coordinator will oversee the staff and budget for social accountability and community-based components of the project and must ensure that all EU and GOAL compliance and policies are upheld.
