UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life, as envisaged by 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We are on the ground in more than 170 countries and territories, working with governments and people on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners that can bring about results.
The Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) has the responsibility for developing all relevant policy and guidance to support the results of UNDP’s Strategic Plan and help countries to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. BPPS’s staff provides technical advice to Country Offices; advocates for UNDP corporate messages, represents UNDP at multi-stakeholder fora including public-private dialogues, government and civil society dialogues, South-South and Triangular cooperation initiatives, and engages in UN inter-agency coordination in specific thematic areas.
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and chronic respiratory disease, are a leading health and development challenge. Responding to NCDs requires the significant engagement of sectors beyond health, who are often uniquely placed to address the underlying drivers that shape people’s exposure to the four main behavioural risk factors for NCDs – tobacco use, harmful use of alcohol, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity – as well as access to prevention and treatment services.
UNDP and the World Health Organization collaborate on the global joint programme Catalyzing Multisectoral Action on Non-communicable Diseases. The project aims to strengthen national governance of NCD responses by addressing strategies, multisectoral coordination, financing and policy coherence. Tobacco use, driven by industry marketing and fueled by social inequities, kills over 8 million people per year, inhibiting socio-economic development and obstructing progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. UNDP works closely with the Secretariat of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control to deliver the FCTC 2030 project, helping countries to strengthen their national tobacco control governance frameworks. Finally, UNDP and WHO collaborate under a joint programme funded by the Gulf-Health Council, to cost the primary heatlh care systems in the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries.
The joint programmes on NCDs and tobacco control described above entail developing national investment cases that offer a cost-benefit analysis of NCD and tobacco control interventions. The investment case reports are generally produced in English and another UN language, are custom tailored to each country’s health and political priorities and are developed jointly with a range of partners, including the UN, government, academia and civil society. The Gulf Health Council project entails final laid out reports, as well as infographics for each of the six project countries.
