Job Description

Organizational context

Following UNICEF’s vision for health: “a world where no child dies from preventable causes and all children reach their full potential in health and well-being”, the Indonesia Country Office has been contributing to the global and national targets for improving health and well-being. UNICEF in Indonesia is unique among multi-lateral agencies with a field presence in seven regional and sub-regional offices, primarily in areas with the greatest disparities and service gaps. These fill the gap between upstream high-level policy and programme advice with more downstream support to planning, financing and service delivery on the ground, especially to advocate for quality, equity and sustainability of programs. UNICEF’s activities concentrate on the most vulnerable and marginalised towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – ensuring that progress touches those who currently are missing out or overlooked.

In the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic, UNICEF is also actively supporting the government with its response.
