The Position:

UNFPA under the 10th Country Programme Document (CPD) (2023-2027) envisages to contribute to accelerate progress towards the achievement of the three transformative results of reducing preventable maternal deaths, unmet need for family planning, and gender-based violence and harmful practices, including child marriage. In realizing this vision, the focus of the 10th country programme will be on addressing discriminatory gender and social norms and disparities that restrict access to high-quality and inclusive sexual and reproductive health services, particularly for those most left behind, as well as scaling up advocacy for young people’s education, employment, engagement, and health to harness the demographic dividend.

UNFPA works in partnership with key government institutions, including social welfare and women development departments, commissions on the status of women and criminal justice sector institutions to implement comprehensive federal and provincial programmes to advance the agenda of reducing gender-based violence and child marriage.

The Programme Analyst-GBV will work in a highly complex environment requiring programmatic collaboration with relevant government agencies, civil society partners at provincial level in Sindh. This will involve close coordination with women machineries (women commissions on the status of women, women development department, social welfare departments) and criminal justice sector actors including police, prosecution, and judiciary, provincial government agencies, civil society organizations within the relevant sector, UN organizations, community-based organizations and development partners. She/he will support implementation of the Gender and Social Norms output under the 10th CPD (2023-2027).

How you can make a difference:

UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled. UNFPA’s strategic plan (2022-2025), reaffirms the relevance of the current strategic direction of UNFPA and focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices. These results capture our strategic commitments on accelerating progress towards realizing the ICPD and SDGs in the Decade of Action leading up to 2030. Our strategic plan calls upon UN Member States, organizations and individuals to “build forward better”, while addressing the negative impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on women’s and girls’ access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, recover lost gains and realize our goals.

In a world where fundamental human rights are at risk, we need principled and ethical staff, who embody these international norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction.

UNFPA is seeking candidates that transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results; we need staff who are transparent, exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commit to deliver excellence in programme results.
