CARE International PNG is recruiting a Project Officer. In Bougainville, CARE managed the Village Assemblies Strengthening and the Bougainville
Community Governance projects (2013-17). CARE developed tools and training that have since been adopted by Bougainville’s Department of
Community Government. Now, under the Community Government Act of 2016, there is the opportunity to bring CARE’s experience to bear on the
new government structures. Importantly, Bougainville’s Community Governments are represented by a Chair and Deputy Chair, one of whom mustvbe a woman. The same female/male parity is true at ward level. While the Act ensures that local government representation is gender balanced,
CARE believes that not enough attention has been paid to the actual working relations of these women and men leaders. Most of these women are
holding political office for the first time; likewise, it is the first time for most of the men to be working with women as colleagues with equal
Burnet Institute is a leading Australian medical research and public health organisation focused on achieving better health for vulnerable communities in Australia and internationally by accelerating the translation of research, discovery and evidence into sustainable health solutions. The Institute is headquartered in Melbourne with programs that operate across Asia and the Pacific. The NGO operation combines research activities with practical action through the design and implementation of public health and development
programs. The Institute has headquarters in Melbourne and several international offices, including Port Moresby and Kokopo in PNG.
Since August 2014, Burnet has been a partner in the response to the TB epidemic in South Fly District and Western Province. Burnet is contributing to the design and implementation of an effective response to the epidemic and in monitoring its implementation, in partnership with the Western Provincial Health Office (PHO), Daru General Hospital, PATH, and World Vision. This includes supporting the implementation of patient-centred TB care at the facility and community level in Daru, and seeking to better understand the TB
epidemic and responses through monitoring, evaluation, and operational research.
Drug Resistant Tuberculosis in PNG and the Western Province TB program
Papua New Guinea (PNG) is one of only 14 countries classified by the WHO as having the triple high burden of TB, MDR-TB and TB-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) co-infection. Three hotspot regions have been
identified in the country including Gulf, NCD and Western Province. In Western province the problem has been further compounded by high levels of drug-resistant TB, with evidence of primary (person to person) transmission of resistant strains, particularly in Daru of South Fly District.
The Western Province TB program, led by the PHA, with support from partners has led to commendable success, with an increasing recognition of Daru as a ‘center for excellence’ in the programmatic management of DR TB with outstanding treatment outcomes for patients.
Results using the Optima TB model indicate that detection and treatment of active TB in conjunction with detection and treatment of TB infection (TBI) offers the greatest and most rapid reduction in TB incidence and transmission. The benefit is sustained over a number of subsequent years and is consistent with the approach WHO’s regional Green Light Committee (rGLC) have recommended for Daru. Moreover, treating individuals with TB infection using the proposed population-based test and treatment approach provides far greater benefit than the current phase of relying only on household contact tracing services by reducing the infectious pool of TB and the numbers of active cases needed to treat.
This position is based in Port Moresby and administratively reporting to the Head of Employee Relations within BSP Human Resource Strategic Business Unit and functionally reporting to BSP PNG Family & Sexual Violence Action Committee (PNG FSVAC). The successful candidate will be responsible for implementation of BSP’s Group Family & Sexual Violence Policy, creating and driving awareness and advocacy programmes and strengthening strategic sector partnerships.
