 No. of Post: 1
 Duty Station: Nyala, South Darfur
 Duration: One month
 Closing Date: 05 Oct 2023


International Medical Corps (IMC), an international non-governmental organization (located at 12400 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 1500, Los Angeles, California), with a country office in Khartoum and field offices in south Kordofan, Blue Nile, and West, Central and South Darfur states -Sudan. The health sector in Sudan faces multifaceted challenges. Sudan has been grappling with a deep-rooted humanitarian crisis, further exacerbated by significant security and economic tribulations that have taken a toll on the nation's health and education sectors. Several factors have magnified the health concerns, including inadequate access to clean water, poor sanitation, a faltering economy, and limited infrastructural investments. Particularly concerning is the heightened susceptibility of children below the age of five to diseases that are vaccine-preventable and the disturbing rise in malnutrition rates. The nutritional challenges in Sudan are not just limited to food access but are intertwined with issues like inadequate dietary variety, restricted access to clean water, sanitation, healthcare facilities, and the broad-ranging effects of gender inequality.


In light of these challenges, there is a pressing initiative aimed at achieving Universal Health Coverage in select medical establishments in Nyala, South Darfur. The core of this initiative is to bolster the quality and availability of Reproductive Health/Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (RH/EmONC) and Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) services, and nutrition services. Moreover, recent dialogues with stakeholders from diverse sectors accentuate the significance of this undertaking. With international organizations diminishing their footprint due to escalating security issues in Nyala, the private sector's role has become increasingly dominant. Such a trend is concerning, underscoring the urgent need for interventions that revive and fortify the public health and educational frameworks in the region.


To address these challenges and improve the quality and efficiency of health services, it is crucial to train health workers, vaccinators, community health volunteers, and relevant stakeholders on different essential components. This consultancy aims to strengthen the capacity and skills of these health actors, focusing on various training areas including EmONC, IPC and PFA. International Medical Corps is seeking a qualified training institution or expert trainer in providing training courses in areas of EmONC, IPC, EPI and cold chain management and psychological first aid. The applicants must be Sudanese nationals, officially registered (local) training institutions or individuals Sudanese nationals with expertise in the training subjects with the capacity to deliver multiple training topics.
