Job Description

Organizational context

This National UN Volunteer assignment is with UNICEF Indonesia.

Initial contract for 12 months, with the possibility of extension.

The UNICEF WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) program in Indonesia supports the acceleration of the Government WASH program. UNICEF WASH also advocates for adequate WASH facilities (hardware and hygiene promotion) in schools and health facilities; and provides technical support at National and sub-national level to Government in order to achieve government targets and Sustainable Development Goals (i.e. universal WASH access). Handwashing with soap (HWWS) is a key development priority for the Government of Indonesia (GOI) and part of GOI’s commitment to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals agenda. HWWS forms the second pillar of the GOI’s National Sanitation and Hygiene Programme ( STBM – Sanitasi Total Berbasis Masyarakat) and the School Health Program (UKS) strategy and intervention. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the stark reality of poor access to hand hygiene facilities all across Indonesia, not only in homes but also in key settings such as schools and madrasahs, workplaces, healthcare facilities as well as crowded public spaces such as marketplaces and public transportation.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has placed HWWS as a top political priority for the GOI and necessitates implementation of a nation-wide HWWS programme covering all key settings to achieve universal access to handwashing facilities and sustainable behaviour change. This requires strengthening of partnerships involving a range of stakeholders to promote advocacy and create an enabling environment for scaling up HWWS initiatives, including development of collaborative partnerships to implement hygiene programs. Last year, UNICEF led the establishment of a Public-Private Partnership for HWWS (PPP-HWWS) with a Steering Committee of 18 members including the Ministry of Health, private sector, development partners and WASH organisations. During Global Handwashing Day, the PPP-HWWS launched a National Call to Action for HWWS outlining a “whole-of-society” approach to accelerate national access to HWWS which was endorsed by 10 Ministries. This year, UNICEF will continue to lead the coordination of the PPP-HWWS to implement the National Call to Action through sustainable partnerships for HWWS. Additionally, UNICEF will also work closely with Ministry of Health to develop and disseminate a Country Roadmap for HWWS which includes developing demand and supply generation activities, capacity building and monitoring for HWWS.

Task description
