Technical Officer (Health Information Management - HIM) - P4

Nepal, Bāgmatī , Kathmandu

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAMMEThe objective of the WHO Nepal Country Office is to implement the Country Cooperation Strategy by (1) supporting the Nepal Government in the formulation, implementation and evaluation of national health policies, strategies and plans and by (2) developing and managing WHOs' technical cooperation programs at the country level. Nepal, with the promulgation of its new constitution in 2015, became a federal state with three governance levels (the federal, the provincial, and the local). Each level has its mandated responsibility to ensure the health of the population. Given the evolving management and implementation structures at different governance levels, there is a need for WHO to respond and support these structures at national and sub-national levels to improve equity and quality of health services, reorganization and management of health care delivery, human resources, information systems and monitoring of situations, risks and trends, supplies chain management, health risk monitoring and disease surveillance systems. Such interventions are required for measurement and accountability and to facilitate progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the targets in the WHO's 13th General Programme of Work (GPW13). Specifically, as the state moves towards a more federalized set-up, WHO will support the country in aligning the erstwhile centralized health system structure - especially with respect to health information management - with the new devolved but integrated structures at the three levels of governance. WHO also provides guidance and technical support in organizing the humanitarian health response following emergencies and in revitalizing the capacity of the health sector to rebuild and recover from emergencies in appropriate and sustainable ways.

The WHO Health Emergencies Programme (WHE) supports the MoHP to direct and co-ordinate the rapid provision of life-saving emergency health interventions at scale in the aftermath of multi-hazard disasters and subsequently assists in the rapid recovery of the health system in collaboration with national and international partners. Thereupon it provides technical support to the MoH and partners to enhance health sector emergency risk management through risk reduction or mitigation; preparedness and response readiness to build a health system that is resilient to multi-hazard disasters including public health emergencies.
