The Design, Monitoring and Evaluation (DM&E) Manager is responsible for providing leadership and technical support on design, monitoring and evaluation within the DRC Country Program. The position includes supervision of staff on the national DM&E team, as well as coordination with DM&E colleagues in the Great Lakes region on regional projects.
The Senior Knowledge Management Advisor (Senior Advisor) will work within MCHN’s Research and Policy Division (RP), which is responsible for providing technical leadership, guidance, and coordination to advance the integrated use of policy, data, research and development to accelerate the uptake, scale and sustained and effective use of maternal, newborn, child, and environmental health and nutrition programming.
For decades, the maternal and newborn health community has focused primarily on the rural poor. Now, more than half the world lives in urban settings with the ratio going up every year. In Latin America, an estimated 55 percent of under-five deaths occur in urban areas, said Robert Clay, vice president of global health at the non-profit Save the Children. In Africa and Asia, cities account for approximately 30 percent of under-five deaths and the expectation is that the number will increase.
