Coordinateur/trice Financier/e & Ressources Humaines - Conakry GUINEE - H/F
Country: Guinea Organization: ALIMA Closing date: 12 Oct 2022 ALIMA en GUINEE Plusieurs projets de recherche, d’urgence et humanitaire sont développés par Alima en Guinée : Le projet PREVAC UP : Financé par EDCTP via l’Inserm, ce projet vise la mise en place d’un suivi annuel des participants à l’essai PREVAC jusqu’à la 5e année après l’inclusion. Les visites de suivi dans le cadre de PREVAC-UP vont s’étaler de mars 2019 à octobre 2023.Pour ce projet, ALIMA est devenu co-investigateur. Ce projet PREVAC UP est la deuxième phase du projet PREVAC où ALIMA était l’opérateur en charge de la mise en œuvre du protocole de recherche PREVAC en Guinée. PREVAC signifie « Partnership for Research on Ebola VACcination – Partenariat pour la recherche des vaccins contre Ebola » qui est un partenariat de recherche sur deux candidats vaccins contre la maladie à virus Ebola entre l’INSERM (Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale, France), le NIH (National Institutes of Health, USA) et La LSHTM (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, England). Ce projet s’est tenu d’Octobre 2015 à Octobre 2019. Cette étude se déroule en Guinée, au Sierra Leone, au Libéria et au Mali et se fait en collaboration avec les ministères de la santé respectifs. Cette étude va permettre d’obtenir des données comparatives sur la rapidité, la cinétique et la durabilité de la réponse immunitaire induite et sur la tolérance clinique des participants. 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 de ressources humaines nationales, gouvernance par objectif et autonomisation des équipes projets.

Refugee Protection Specialist - level P3 (International Consultant)
Country: Senegal Organization: UN High Commissioner for Refugees Closing date: 5 Oct 2022 Operational Context Members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) [1] have demonstrated their leadership in refugee protection by becoming parties, to the exception of one of them, to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol and the 1969 Organization of African Unity (OAU) Convention Governing the Specific Aspects of Refugee Problems in Africa. The 15 States have all adopted laws and/or regulations in order to make effective the exercise of the right to seek asylum on their territory and to access and enjoy solutions. Except for one of them (Cape Verde), all have established their own national procedures to carry out individual refugee status determination (RSD). Despite these considerable efforts, some gaps remain to align with international and regional refugee protection law and standards, to maximize the best practices and to better explore the opportunities offered by the ECOWAS Protocol on Free Movements of Persons, Right of Residence and right of establishment. Impaired protection and solutions systems contribute to risky onward movements of refugees and asylum-seekers, within the region or from the region to North Africa and Europe. Protection risks en route include sexual and gender-based violence, abduction, unlawful detention, torture and death. In order to address some of the limitations in the national asylum systems and create a regional framework that would inspire not only law reform but also implementation of protection and solutions to refugees, ECOWAS with the support of UNHCR will adopt Common Minimum Standards on refugee protection and solutions. The proposed common minimum standards seek to use (i) ECOWAS’ existing humanitarian mandate, (ii) the provisions of the Treaty and Protocols, (iii) its continuous commitment to refugee protection and solutions. Overall, Purpose and Scope of Assignment The envisaged directive providing common minimum standards will be developed and adopted under the leadership of ECOWAS, with the support of UNHCR. The proposed directive providing common minimum standards present three main characteristics: 1. A profound shift in refugee protection systems: These common minimum standards would serve to promote the institutionalization of the asylum process and response through building or strengthening institutional capacity of the existing refugee commissions. While commending the prima facie recognition that is used by most of countries in the region, one can also note that some countries lack a strong tradition of individual asylum processing mechanism or structure. Consequently, asylum legislations in some countries in the region do not systematically deal with asylum processes and procedures in details, nor do they always regulate the composition and the mode of operation of eligibility commissions. 2. A focus on solutions: Common minimum standards should deal with the entire protection cycle, from the entry on the territory of asylum to the search for a durable solution, and include: (i) registration and refugee status determination procedures; (ii) rights of and available services for asylum-seekers throughout these processes, such as reception, targeted assistance and legal counselling; (iii) rights of and available services for refugees upon receiving their status, namely access to documentation, education, health care, social welfare, employment, legal counselling, justice or financial institutions. The region has a very good record of solutions best practices, and it is important to draw on the positive experience and institutionalize it across the region, hence the need for an harmonized approach. References could be made to existing ECOWAS initiatives such as the new ECOWAS National Biometric Identity Card created to facilitate the freedom of movement for ECOWAS citizens within the Economic Community by serving as a passport, a residency permit, a proof of identity and other purposes depending on the Member State, for instance as a voter's card in Senegal [2]. The principle of freedom of movement and the right to establish offer even better prospects to enhance these dimensions and so do related policies on access to education, health etc. 3. The preservation of the civilian and humanitarian character of asylum: Considering the ongoing armed conflicts in the region, including in the Central Sahel and in the Lake Chad Basin, the envisaged common minimum standards will seek to maintain the civilian and humanitarian character of asylum. Military activities are by nature incompatible with the civilian character of asylum and persons identified as fighters or combatants cannot be admitted into refugee status determination procedures unless they have genuinely and permanently renounced such activities. In the spirit of the Global Compact on Refugees, UNHCR strategic goal is the harmonization of protection and solutions to ensure refugees adequate access to their rights and the ECOWAS integration agenda and framework of freedom of movement offers a favorable context. Duties and Responsibilities Under the joint supervision of the UNHCR Regional Bureau for West and Central Africa and ECOWAS, the consultant will: Carry out a comprehensive desk review of existing legislations, regulations and soft law in all 15 ECOWAS States relating to refugee protection and solutions (e.g. status determination procedures, rights of asylum-seekers and refugees, available services), including through interviews with key informants; Assess and present potential gaps and discrepancies between the normative frameworks and their implementation. Identify gaps with regard to compliance with international and regional refugee law as well as other relevant frameworks (e.g., Global compact on refugees), including through interviews with key informants (e.g., UNHCR Country Operations, national eligibility commissions); Identify and compile practical tools developed and/or used by ECOWAS states in the context of refugee protection and solution, including screening tools and forms. Map out good practices within the region in line with international and regional refugee law as well as other relevant frameworks. Identify good practices and lessons learnt from other regional protection and solutions schemes and regimes. Define the appropriate ECOWAS legal basis, instrument and process to be used to effectively and timely adopt common minimum standards. Draft a model law model on refugee protection and solutions. Expected Deliverables Compilation of all relevant laws, regulations and soft law within the Economic Community of West African States (database). Report highlighting (a) gaps, (b) good practices in the region, (c) good practices from other regional asylum frameworks, (d) a set of recommendations Common minimum standards on refugee protection and solutions within ECOWAS A model law on asylum and solutions for refugees All deliverables shall be in French and key summaries in English.
