UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

 

Background & Rationale

40 years after the landmark International Conference on Primary Health Care (GCPHC), the Government of Kazakhstan, UNICEF and WHO will convene a high-level Global Conference on Primary Health Care in Astana, Kazakhstan, which will be attended by multiple heads of state and Ministers of Health, Education and Finance and will include a focus on youth. The 1978 Alma Ata Conference resulted in the first international declaration underlining the importance of primary health care (PHC) and expressing the need for urgent action by all governments, all health and development workers, and the world community to protect and promote the health of all people. The 2018 conference will produce a similar declaration, renewing global commitment to PHC as a means of achieving Universal Health Coverage and the SDG health goals. UNICEF is engaged with ongoing planning processes together with WHO and the Government of Kazakhstan, focusing currently on communications and youth engagement around the conference.

The GCPHC will represent a key landmark on the road to the SDGs, with important implications for UNICEF’s and WHO’s ongoing work on primary health care as a means to achieve UHC. Effective communications around this conference will, therefore, be critical.

 

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is to provide planning, technical and logistical support for a range of communication-related activities taking place around the GCPHC, building awareness around the importance of PHC and amplifying the voices of young people, including those participating in the conference, and ensuring high-level visibility for UNICEF’s participation and co leadership in the conference.

 

Expected results: (measurable results)

  • In collaboration with CO Communication Specialist, and coordination with RO Communication section and Division of Communication (DOC), support colleagues from UNICEF, WHO and Government of Kazakhstan in run-up to conference, during conference and following conference, including a youth engagement meeting that will take place on 24thOctober, to ensure smooth planning, implementation and documentation of communication activities taking place during the GCPHC.
  • Assist in the provision of logistical support for installation, management and removal of PHC photo exhibition during GCPHC.
  • In consultation with HQ based CO Communication Specialist, and coordination with RO Communication section and DOC, support the content-preparation, setup, staffing and removal of “UNICEF booth” at GCPHC.
