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.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
The UNAIDS Country Office has overall responsibility for ensuring the functioning and accountability across all areas in the division of labour among the UNAIDS family of co-sponsors on the following matters: Leadership and Advocacy; Coordination, coherence and partnerships; and Mutual accountability.
Current UN operations in Somalia are carried out in three zones; Puntland, Somaliland and South Central. In that regard,
UNAIDS co-sponsors have office presence in each of the three zones. For UNAIDS to effectively execute its mandate of advocacy, coordination, strategic planning and M&E, it is necessary that it also establishes local presence in each of the three zones.
UNAIDS has signed an MoU with UNICEF (Global Fund PR) to support Global Fund supported M&E work in Somalia including the development of M & Framework and tools and technical support to its implementation at national and zonal levels.
From 2012 UNAIDS has strengthened its leadership and coordination roles through the revitalization of the Joint Team on AIDS (JUNTA) in Nairobi and established foundations for zonal level JUNTA coordination structures. In Puntland, the JUNTA has been chaired by UNAIDS with other agencies taking the lead in the three zones. The same arrangement needs to be replicated in Somali Central and Somaliland. Apart from the JUNTA meetings, there is need for continued participation and representation of UNAIDS in key forums and working groups at the zonal level and coordination of key activities in consultation with UCC. Other initiatives in need of zonal level inputs include the on-going efforts to ensure that the UN cares minimum standards are observed by all agencies at the zonal level and the new focus on integrating HIV in IASC cluster work with link to emergencies. The key implementation steps for the activities under each of the result areas are detailed in the county work plan.
For the technical needs of supporting the M&E work and coordination in the three zones UNAIDS is looking for National Professional Officers to support the UCO and ensure other activities within the UNAIDS mandate are implemented in three zones. UNAIDS requires frequent zonal level consultations, inputs and reviews in which operational, facilitation and coordination and consultations with the NACs and other stakeholders will be required.
