The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, with a network of 192-member National Societies. The overall aim of the IFRC is “to inspire, encourage, facilitate, and promote at all times all forms of humanitarian activities by National Societies with a view to preventing and alleviating human suffering and thereby contributing to the maintenance and promotion of human dignity and peace in the world.” The IFRC works to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people before, during and after disasters, health emergencies and other crises.
The IFRC is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (Movement), together with its member National Societies and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The work of the IFRC is guided by the following fundamental principles: humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity, and universality.
The IFRC has five regional offices in Africa, Asia Pacific, Middle East and North Africa, Europe, and the Americas. The IFRC also has country cluster delegations and country delegations throughout the world. Together, the Geneva Headquarters and the field structure (regional, cluster and country delegations) comprise the IFRC Secretariat.
At Geneva level the Health and Care Department consists of four teams: Emergency Health, RCCE, WASH and Community Health. This consultancy will support the work of the malaria program within the Community Health Team.
Established in 2004, the Alliance for Malaria Prevention (AMP) is a global partnership of more than 40 organizations, including government, private sector, faith-based and humanitarian organizations, positioned within the Country / Regional Support Partner Committee (CRSPC) of the RBM Partnership to End Malaria (RBM Partnership). RBM’s CRSPC provides a platform to engage the RBM Partnership community in coordinating support to countries and regions as they execute their malaria control and elimination programmes, through activities ranging from country resource mobilization and advocacy to implementation support. The AMP partnership focuses on scaling up efforts to prevent malaria through achieving and sustaining universal access to, and use of, insecticide-treated nets (ITNs), and is made up of partners who both uniquely understand and are affected by this challenge. These life-saving nets have been shown to reduce uncomplicated malaria incidence by 50 per cent and all-cause child mortality by 17 per cent, accelerating progress towards WHO’s Global Technical Strategy (GTS) targets.
Through its coordination of partners within the malaria community, AMP advocates for resolution of ITN distribution challenges and resource mobilization in support of members’ shared priorities, while ensuring global tracking of ITN mass campaigns. AMP facilitates trainings aimed at strengthening and sharing the skills of national malaria programmes and partner organization staff, focusing on ITN campaign planning, logistics, social and behaviour change (SBC), and monitoring and evaluation. AMP also provides operational guidance through a comprehensive toolkit focused on universal coverage ITN campaigns. The extensively-consulted AMP toolkit serves as a base document and is complemented by a series of “briefs”, bringing the information up to date as more experience is gained by countries undertaking mass ITN distribution in a wide variety of different circumstances. Additional guidance on different themes is developed based on identified needs and iterative learning from country experiences. Finally, based on requests from national malaria programmes, AMP provides globally-recognized expert technical assistance through distance and in-country missions to support countries in successfully planning and executing complex ITN distribution campaigns, in line with national malaria programme ITN policies and strategies.
