Termes de références pour une Consultance en Formation mhGAP pour la Croix-Rouge française en Mauritanie
Country: Mauritania Organization: Croix-Rouge Française Closing date: 1 Oct 2021 CONTEXTE : LA SANTE MENTALE EN MAURITANIE ET A MBERA La maladie mentale est l’une des principales causes de morbidité et d’invalidité dans le monde. Ses effets se manifestent dans tous les groupes d’âge. Selon une étude de l’OMS sur la charge mondiale de la morbidité, le classement des troubles mentaux et ceux liés à l’utilisation de substances toxiques (MSU) s’est aggravé, passant de la 11ème à la 10ème des causes en termes d’années de vie corrigée de l’invalidité (AVCI) en Afrique de l’Ouest entre 1990 et 2015. Le taux normalisé selon l’âge de mortalité due aux maladies mentales et celles liées à l’utilisation de substances toxiques est passée de 0,22% en 1990 à 0,38% en 2015. En ce qui concerne le nombre d’années de vie corrigé de l’invalidité (AVCI), la proportion est passée de 2,7% à 3,9% au cours de la même période. Chez les 15 à 49 ans, le taux de DALY en rapport avec le MSU est passé de 8,25% en 1990 à 9,32% en 2015. En effet, le MSU était la deuxième cause de perte de DALY dans ce groupe d’âge. Après avoir été exclue des Objectifs du Millénaire pour le Développement (OMD), la santé mentale fait désormais partie des Objectifs du Développement Durable (SDG). Des 17 objectifs, il en existe un, le troisième qui vise à assurer une vie saine et à promouvoir le bien-être pour tous à tous les âges, et comporte deux cibles pertinentes pour la santé mentale ainsi qu’il suit: D’ici 2030, réduire d’un tiers la mortalité précoce due aux maladies non transmissibles par la prévention et le traitement et promouvoir la santé mentale et le bien-être Renforcer la prévention et le traitement de la toxicomanie, y compris l’abus de stupéfiants et la consommation abusive de l’alcool. En Afrique de l’Ouest, la plupart des pays ont un plan ou une politique de santé mentale, cependant dans la majorité des pays, sa mise en œuvre n’est que partielle ou non effective. À l’exception du Ghana, du Sénégal et de la Sierra Leone, les autres pays ne disposent pas de législations propres sur la santé mentale. Par ailleurs, la mise en œuvre n’est que partielle dans les pays ayant une législation en la matière. Il existe des défis en ce qui concerne les ressources humaines, les infrastructures et la gestion des données en matière de gestion des services de santé mentale. Santé Mentale en Mauritanie La situation dans le domaine de la santé mentale et du soutien psychosocial est particulièrement dégradée. Dans un pays avec plus de 4 millions d’habitants où la prévalence des troubles psychiques dans la capitale est de plus d’un tiers, il n’existe qu’une seule structure de psychiatrie opérationnelle : le Centre Neuropsychiatrique (CNP) de Nouakchott. Une personne souffrant potentiellement de troubles mentaux n’importe où dans le pays ne peut donc être référée que vers ce centre. Pourtant, il n’y a actuellement que 5 psychiatres affectés, une capacité d’accueil limitée à 14 lits et une faible disponibilité de médicaments psychotropes. En ce qui concerne les soins psychologiques, il y a très peu des psychologues travaillant dans le domaine privé et le soutien psychosocial se limite aux interventions des assistants des organisations de la société civile (OSC). Étant donné ces constats sur l’importance des besoins et les faiblesses de prise en charge en santé mentale en Mauritanie, en 2020 la CRF a mise en disposition des agents psychosociaux dans les Centres de Protection et Intégration Sociale des Enfants (CPISE) à Nouakchott et dans le cadre du projet financé par l’OIM d’« Amélioration de l’accès aux premiers secours (santé et psychologique) pour la communauté de migrants de Nouadhibou et Nouakchott » a mise en place deux espaces d’écoute ouverts à la population migrante et à la population hôte à Nouakchott (au sein du centre d’hébergement Socogim de l’AFCF) et à Nouadhibou (au sein du centre d’hébergement de l’OMN). Egalement, la CRF a organisé en janvier 2021 une formation de 5 jours destinée à 10 agent.es de santé de la ville de Nouadhibou sur le guide d’intervention mhGAP, un outil crée par l’OMS et qui expose les interventions recommandées dans les pays à revenu faible ou intermédiaire pour identifier et prendre en charge un certain nombre de psychopathologies prioritaires. Santé Mentale dans le camp de réfugiés de Mbera La prévalence des troubles mentaux chez les personnes réfugiées est encore plus élevée que dans la population générale, notamment dans les camps de réfugiés ou déplacés internes où les personnes font face à des nombreuses difficultés (adaptation, violences, accès aux services basiques, nostalgie, deuils, perte de rôles, etc.) ajoutées aux problématiques propres du parcours migratoire. Une étude de l’OMS publié dans la revue scientifique The Lancet a identifié cinq troubles qui frappent plus les personnes vivant dans les zones de conflit : la dépression, l’anxiété, le syndrome de stress post-traumatique, le désordre bipolaire et la schizophrénie. Le HCR souligne que « les problèmes cliniques les plus fréquents et les plus importants parmi les réfugiés sont d’ordre psychologique, depuis la dépression jusqu’aux différentes formes de troubles de l’anxiété, en passant par des réactions de deuil prolongé ou des troubles de stress post-traumatiques. » L’absence de traitements adaptés et la persistance d’un degré élevé de stress aggravent la situation. D’autant que, pour la plupart, la prise en charge médicale de ces troubles mentaux est inaccessible. Chez les réfugiés atteint des maladies chroniques, il a été révélé que la prévalence de la dépression est très élevée. Ainsi 80% des tuberculeux, 52% des malades atteints du SIDA, 38% des cancéreux et 27% des insuffisants rénaux souffrent d’une dépression (MSF, 2016). Les enfants et les femmes font face à des formes spécifiques de vulnérabilité : violence conjugale, violences sexuelles, recrudescence des mariages précoces, harcèlement et isolement, exploitation et prostitution pour survivre. Les enfants, qui constituent près de la moitié des réfugiés et des déplacés, sont déjà en tant que tels des victimes et ils sont très susceptibles de développer des troubles de neuro-développement, des limitations cognitives et psychomotrices et d’autres conséquences psychosociales. Selon le MSF (2016) on rencontre souvent dans le camp de Mbera certains états de stress post traumatique ayant commencé pendant la guerre et qui ont pris des virages dépressifs ou psychotiques. Dans la culture locale, il se trouve qu’il est humiliant voire honteux pour un homme de manifester son stress même après un événement traumatisant, car le stress est considéré comme une faiblesse ou une immaturité. De ce fait, pas mal de gens vivent avec leur stress latent, et c’est après aggravation que ces troubles sont découverts. Depuis 2012 jusqu’à 2018 l’organisation INTERSOS a assuré la prise en charge psychologique des personnes dans le camp de Mbera. A partir de 2014, le HCR a mené une formation en Santé Mentale et Soutien Psychosocial aux agents psychosociaux et au psychologue d’INTERSOS parmi d’autres partenaires et au personnel de centres de santé. Pendant cette période 345 personnes souffrant des troubles psychopathologiques dont 148 étaient des cas des troubles mentaux graves ont été soutenus. A partir de 2012, le référencement de cas compliqués vers le CNP a été remplacé pour l’intervention d’un psychologue clinicien qui faisait des visites régulières depuis Nouakchott et de 8 médecins formés en 2016 par MSF en soins psychiatriques à travers le guide mhGAP. Le stock de médicaments psychotropes assuré par MSF a permis aux médecins de continuer la prescription de médicaments après son départ en 2018. ALIMA a continué jusqu’à 2020 à intégrer la santé mentale dans ses activités mais d’une manière atténuée et sans un suivi approprié. L’avant dernier médecin formé par le MSF a quitté le camp en juin 2020, par conséquent aujourd’hui il n’y reste qu’un médecin formé en prise en charge psychiatrique des troubles mentaux : le médecin chef du centre de santé de Mbera. A partir de 2020, l’organisation allemande RET fournit un soutien psychosocial aux personnes en souffrance et aux victimes des violences basées sur le genre identifiées par l’AMPF ou par le personnel de santé. Pourtant, 1 seul psychologue pour une cohorte de 333 patients reconnus avec souffrance mentale est insuffisant. Bref, actuellement il n’y a pas une prise en charge spécialisée en santé mentale disponible pour tous les malades mentaux ou pour les survivantes des VSBG avec des séquelles psychologiques graves et l’appui psychologique dispensé a besoin d’être renforcé. Ce projet vise à reprendre les interventions étant fonctionnelles dans le passé et à implémenter d’autres nouvelles afin de contribuer à la prévention et promotion de la santé mentale des personnes réfugiées du camp de Mbera. La santé mentale est intégrée comme un élément constitutif de la santé selon l’OMS, au même niveau que la santé physique et sociale. En cohérence avec la Stratégie Nationale de Santé Mentale (2015-2020) et le Plan National de Développement Sanitaire (2017-2020), la CRf propose un renforcement de l’offre en Santé Mentale et Psychosocial dans le camp de Mbera. Ces deux documents plaident pour l’intégration des questions relatives à la santé mentale dans le système de santé, via la mise en place de services de soins, de thérapies adaptées aux groupes vulnérables et d’un programme de décentralisation de la PEC des troubles mentaux et pathologies neurologiques légères jusqu’au niveau des CS. Ces documents mettent en avant la nécessité de former le personnel de santé en psychiatrie et en psychothérapie, de doter les CS d’intrants et de paquets minimums d’activités et d’élaborer un cadre de gestion de la santé mentale, dotés de mécanismes de suivi et de contrôle gérés par l’Etat. Contribuant aux objectifs de ces stratégies nationales, le projet de la CRf à Mbera vise à garantir la pérennité de la réponse en santé mentale et soutien psychosocial, à limiter les risques de développement des troubles mentaux et à traiter les séquelles psychologiques des violences et des maladies chroniques. OBJECTIFS DE LA CONSULTANCE En 2021 la Croix-Rouge française (CRf) et le Croissant Rouge Mauritanien ont démarré un projet financé par le HCR visant à faciliter l’accès, la qualité des soins et des services auprès des réfugiés de Mbera dans le cadre de leur inclusion dans le système national de santé » Le volet santé mentale de ce projet est principal, tant au niveau communautaire à travers les activités psychosociales à développer pour les volontaires comme au niveau des structures de santé à travers la prise en charge psychologique et psychiatrique des patients. L’une des faiblesses identifiées se situe dans le cadre de la prise en charge des personnes présentant des besoins en santé mentale et soutien psychosocial spécifiques. Les possibilités de prise en charge de ces patients, et donc de référencement spécialisé, sont limitées par le manque de ressources humaines qualifiées locales ; les spécialistes en santé mentale ne sont généralement disponibles que sur Nouakchott, rendant le référencement couteux, complexe, et souvent impossible pour les personnes et familles concernées. Afin de renforcer les capacités des centres de santé à Mbera et à Bassikounou dans le domaine de la santé mentale, et ainsi favoriser une prise en charge locale de qualité des personnes présentant des besoins spécifiques, une formation adaptée a été décidée basée sur les outils développés par l’OMS. En effet, reconnaissant l’impératif de fournir des soins aux personnes présentant des troubles mentaux, neurologiques et liés à l’utilisation de substances psychoactives (MNS) et à leurs aidants ainsi que de combler l’écart entre les ressources disponibles et les besoins immenses de soins, le Département de Santé Mentale et Abus de Substances Psychoactives de l’OMS a lancé en 2008 le Programme d’action Combler les lacunes en santé mentale, en anglais Mental Health Gap Action Programme (mhGAP). L’objectif de cette consultance est donc de proposer aux agents de santé des centres de soins de la région de Nouadhibou une formation mhGAP, sur la base du guide d’intervention développé par l’OMS[1]. Objectifs spécifiques : Apporter aux participants les notions de base du soin et de la pratique clinique et la compréhension de la Matrice d’orientation Assurer l’acquisition des connaissances et compétences sur la prise en charge et le traitement des personnes souffrant des troubles suivant : Dépression Psychoses Épilepsie Troubles mentaux et du comportement de l’enfant et de l’adolescent Démence Troubles liés à l’utilisation de substances psychoactives Conduites auto-agressives/suicidaires Autres plaintes psychologiques envahissantes Identifier les besoins d’accompagnement des personnes formées pour proposer des pistes pour les programmations futures. ORGANISATION GENERALE Afin de mener à bien cette formation, il est proposé une mission se déroulant ainsi Préparation (2J) ­Adaptation des outils de formation (manuel de formateur disponible en anglais : https://www.who.int/mental_health/mhgap/tohp_training_manual.pdf?ua=1 et powerpoints, également en anglais : https://www.who.int/mental_health/mhgap/tots_slides.pdf?ua=1) ­Élaboration des supports Formation (5J) ­Animation de l’ensemble des modules Compte rendu (1J)­ Rédaction d’un rapport complet de la formation, incluant des recommandations pour le suivi et l’accompagnement des personnes formées.

En Guinée, ALIMA est en charge de la mise en œuvre de cet essai clinique en étroite collaboration avec l’Inserm, le sponsor de l’étude, avec le Ministère de la Santé et l’Agence Nationale de Sécurité Sanitaire. Le projet AIRE : Le projet AIRE est un projet de recherche opérationnelle qui a pour objectif d’évaluer l’impact de l’intégration de l’oxymètre de pouls dans les structures de santé de première ligne sur l’amélioration de l’identification, le diagnostic et le référencement précoce des détresses respiratoires chez des enfants de 0 à 5 ans ainsi que sur la réduction de la mortalité infantile. L’étude va permettre de tester l’acceptabilité par les professionnels de santé, de promouvoir l’adoption de meilleurs diagnostics par l’amélioration de la qualité, de l’offre et de la disponibilité des soins, avec prise en charge des cas non sévères, et leur évaluation à J0, J3 et J30. Ce projet est un consortium, financé par UNITAID, pour un montant de 14 928 929 millions de USD et mis en place dans 4 pays (Mali, Niger, Guinée, Burkina Faso), en partenariat avec Solthis, TdH et Inserm. Le projet a été lancé en juillet 2019 et le début des activités est prévue pour juillet 2020. En Guinée, le projet sera mis en place dans le district de Telimele (milieu rural) et la commune de Matoto (milieu urbain). 33 structures de santé seront appuyées parmi lesquelles 4 seront des sites de recherche. Projet Réponse Ebola et Covid Alima : Depuis le 12 mars 2020, la Guinée fait face à la pandémie de Covid-19. A la date du 22 Juillet 2021 (Semaine 28), les autorités sanitaires nationales font état de 24 765 cas confirmés, 23 610 sortis guéris - soit un taux de guérison de 95,3% - et 377 décès, dont 190 décès hospitaliers et 187 communautaires - soit un taux de létalité de 1,5%. Si le pays, à l’image des pays de l’Afrique de l’Ouest, a connu deux vagues épidémiques - de Mars à Août 2020 et de Janvier à Mai 2021- la Guinée connait actuellement une 3ème vague. Depuis la semaine 25, dernière semaine de juin 2021, le pays enregistre un doublement de cas de semaine en semaine. Pendant cette période, le district sanitaire de N'zérékoré a notifié à lui seul 11% de l’ensemble des cas du pays et constitue l’un des foyers Covid à l’heure actuelle. N'zérékoré est aussi un carrefour routier avec une circulation permanente entre les grandes villes des pays limitrophes de la Guinée (Bamako au Mali, Abidjan en Côte d’Ivoire, Ganta, Gbarnga et Monrovia au Libéria). Suite à l’épidémie de la maladie à virus Ebola (MVE) déclarée au mois de Février 2021, la prise en charge de cas suspects et confirmés Covid-19 est organisée dans un chapiteau, une structure de 20 lits mise en place à côté du CT-Epi. Cependant, suite à l’augmentation du nombre de cas observés, la capacité d’accueil du chapiteau est largement dépassée, ce qui a amené les autorités sanitaires régionales à orienter les malades de Covid-19 au CT-Epi. Le CTEPI possède un plateau technique pouvant permettre la prise en charge des cas sévères et critiques covid-19, contrairement au chapiteau. Du 1er au 26 Juillet 2021, 141 cas ont été confirmés Covid, 80 sortis guéris et 5 décès (dont 2 à la semaine 28) ont été enregistrés à Nzérékoré. A partir de la semaine 27, Alima qui accompagne la direction régionale sanitaire (DRS) et l’ANSS dans la prise en charge de cas de MVE depuis Février 2021 au CT-Epi de Nzérékoré assure la prise en charge des cas graves et sévères de Covid-19 mais non sans difficulté. Seize patients ont été ainsi admis au CT-Epi, 9 d’entre eux ont nécessité une oxygénothérapie et deux sont décédés de la semaine 27 à la semaine 28. En dépit de cette tendance à l’augmentation du nombre de cas à l’échelle nationale et régionale, les efforts sont plus concentrés à la mise en place de la vaccination et la prise en charge semble souffrir du manque de moyens conséquents. Le transfert des malades souffrant de Covid-19 de Nzérékoré à Conakry (deux villes distantes de plus de 1000 km l’une de l’autre) n’est pas non plus facile et nécessite des ambulances médicalisées. Cette situation reste critique et le besoin d’améliorer la prise en charge à N'zérékoré par le renforcement du plateau technique et des ressources humaines est urgent. Des projets de recherche en partenariat avec des instituts de recherche, le ministère de la santé en Guinée ou le ministère de la recherche scientifique : COVISTA (Etude observationnelle de l’évolution clinico- biologique et du standard de soin proposé aux patients atteints de Covid-19 symptomatique en Afrique subsaharienne), COVERAGE ANTICOV (Traitement précoce des personnes vulnérables présentant une infection non sévère par le SARS-CoV-2 : un essai randomisé multi-bras multi-étape (MAMS) visant à évaluer l'efficacité de plusieurs traitements spécifiques pour réduire le risque d’aggravation clinique ou de décès en Afrique Sub-saharienne. Protocole de suivi ces patients guéris de Covid 19 Au-delà de tous ces projets en cours des perspectives sont envisagées pour sur d’autres projets notamment la problématique de la mortalité maternelle, la santé environnement, la réponse aux épidémies et particulièrement la rougeole, contrôle de la rougeole, le renforcement des capacités des ressources humaines nationales, gouvernance par objectif et autonomisation des équipes projets.

Country Director, Sierra Leone
Country: Sierra Leone Organization: Helen Keller International Closing date: 31 Oct 2021 Helen Keller Intl JOB ANNOUNCEMENT Country Director, Sierra Leone (Freetown, Sierra Leone) Helen Keller Intl is a global health organization dedicated to eliminating preventable vision loss, malnutrition and diseases of poverty. Cofounded by Helen Keller – and guided by her fierce optimism and belief in human potential – the organization delivers life-changing health solutions to vulnerable families where the need is great but access to care is limited. In the U.S., Africa, and Asia, Helen Keller’s proven, science-based programs empower people to create opportunities in their own lives and build lasting change. We are currently seeking a Country Director (CD) in Sierra Leone to represent Helen Keller, develop new programs, expand our funding and lead the country office and its programs in a manner that reflects our mission and values and ensures technical excellence in the delivery of all activities. Country Program Overview Helen Keller’s Sierra Leone country program has a health and nutrition focus, with strong programs aimed at combatting neglected tropical diseases, improving the health of mothers and young children and promoting improved nutrition through nutrition-sensitive agriculture. We advocate for gender-transformative approaches and aim to make health services more responsive to their clients, particularly women, young children, and adolescents. To improve long-term resilience and sustainability, we focus on strengthening local capacity and preventive care strategies and on motivating positive behavior change. Helen Keller works closely with the Government of Sierra Leone in trying to ensure that we have a favorable enabling environment and local buy-in for our various programs. Our current programs and focus areas include combating Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD), promoting food security, child nutrition and preventing blindness through the Orange Sweet Sheet Potato (OFSP), and holistic health and nutrition through the community-level “6-monthly contact point” (6MlyCP). Our OFSP program aims at improving livelihoods, nutrition, and food security of vulnerable people in communities through promotion of production and value addition of nutritious crops, and increasing their availability, affordability, and accessibility. The 6MlyCP is an integrated reproductive and child health program aimed at mothers of children under age 5 to provide on a 6 monthly basis: (i) routine vitamin A supplementation; (ii) routine family planning services including modern contraceptives; and (iii) demonstrations on preparation and feeding of infants using appropriate diverse complementary food made from locally available commodities. Our NTD program supports Sierra Leone’s Ministry of Health to work toward elimination of lymphatic filariasis (LF) and onchocerciasis and to control schistosomiasis and soil transmitted helminths through annual mass drug administration. Helen Keller Intl is proud of being a leader in public health policy and research in Sierra Leone. Currently our research portfolio includes among others, monitoring the efficacy of various protocols on the coverage of Vitamin A supplementation delivered by routine six-monthly services in Sierra Leone, 2020-2023 and evaluating the impact of albendazole coverage, complementary feeding (CF) practices, and the uptake of modern contraceptives. Functional Relationships The CD reports directly to the Regional Director, West Africa, and leads the Country Management Team (CMT). The position directly supervises a team of professional level staff, works closely with colleagues at all levels of Helen Keller’s global management structure and may be called upon to participate in global working groups or steering committees. Helen Keller has a matrixed reporting structure. Regular communication and a spirit of teamwork among colleagues, both hierarchically and laterally are essential to make this structure thrive. Helen Keller’s programs require close relations with governments, partner universities and NGOs, private industry, donors, and UN agencies.

Field Worker - Sierra Leone
Country: Sierra Leone Organization: First Things Foundation Closing date: 30 Oct 2021 First Things Foundation (FTF) sends good folks to Sub-Saharan Africa on two-year postings of self-discovery via service to those in need; not to change the world but to re-discover what it means to be human. We have found that when we live simply, close our mouths and share in the experience of those who suffer we gain humility and acquire insights.

People matter more than plans. As an FTF Field Director, you will live simply, work “in the trenches,” meet locals, and learn the ins and outs of the local Serria Leonean culture.

Using the connections you make and cultural insights from the immersionship, you will then have the opportunity to identify and assist local “impresarios” or brilliant visionaries who have ideas to build and create (months 7-24). From beginning to end this opportunity is about listening, building relationships, and allowing creativity to flow. As a Field Director, you will be one of the two points of contact for anything happening in your location. You will work in tandem with the existing Field Director to continue creating a network of friends, Impresarios, and stakeholders. You will spend months 0-6: Learning the local and colonial languages (if applicable) (5-10 hours study and tutelage per week) Working one or multiple local jobs with your Immersionship partner(s) (12-30 hours per week) Creating deep, authentic relationships with friends and neighbors through shared drinks and meals (at least once per day) Speaking with FTF’s Director and Executive Field Director (once per week) Writing blogs about your experiences (one per month) You will spend months 7-24: Facilitating entrepreneurial projects and performing one-on-one consulting services with Impresarios Continuing to build a network of folks who can partner with us, back us with funding, provide us with additional advice, or just become good friends Creating profiles for our Impresarios to illustrate their ideas Training your replacement Field Director who will replace you when you leave How to apply: Email a cover letter and CV to danielpadrnos@first-things.org
