Avis de recrutement: OMS recrute un(e) Consultant(e) en communication basé au Cambodge.







      The consultant will support the WHO country office to strengthen partner visibility, health communications, and knowledge management, including COVID-19 emergency work, and translation capacity within the office.


             Cambodia identified the first human confirmed case of COVID-19 in January 2020. The WHO Health Emergencies (WHE) Programme unit in the WHO Country Office Cambodia works in strengthening country capacities and the national alert and response system for health security. The WHE unit also supports communication during the immediate health needs of crisis-affected populations at the same time addressing the underlying causes of their vulnerability. As such different types of communication mechanisms are key pillars in delivering and promoting work on health security.

In 2021, the European Union (EU) and the WHO joined forces to support eight South East Asian countries, including Cambodia, in their responses to COVID-19 and to strengthen preparedness for future pandemics. In line with the Global Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan and guided by the Asia Pacific strategy for emerging diseases and public health emergencies (APSED III), the programme aims to strengthen health systems and to support the COVID-19 response, with a particular focus on reaching the unreached.

The programme is now entering its third, and final, year in Cambodia and there is a need to promote and amplify the outcomes, best practices and strategic learnings of the programme with key audiences nationally and regionally.
