JUNIOR PLANNING, MONITORING, EVALUATION & LEARNING OFFICER (32 HOURS/WEEK)
As a junior Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning (PMEL) Officer at Wemos, you will play an important role in coordinating and supporting the different planning, monitoring and evaluation processes at Wemos. Your objective? To ensure that all these processes are streamlined and eventually support our organisation in advocating the human right to health for all.
We are Wemos: nice to meet you!
At Wemos we consider health a universal human right. As an independent civil society organisation, we aim to improve health worldwide. In line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the ambition for Universal Health Coverage (UHC), we dive into questions such as: How do we achieve a fair and sustainable deployment of sufficient health care personnel worldwide? How do we ensure sufficient financial resources to provide everyone with access to good health? And what is needed to ensure that medicines are accessible and affordable? Based on our knowledge and experience in the field, we influence governments and international institutions, and we work with local organisations to link their national advocacy and the broader global changes.
We work on three themes: Access to Medicines, Finance for Health, and Human Resources for Health. Planning, monitoring, and evaluation is a core function within all of Wemos’ programmes, both for learning as well as accountability purposes. As a lobby and advocacy organisation, Wemos aims to influence the political will and decisions of politicians, policy-makers, and other stakeholders to effectuate Dutch and international policy change. Measuring the processes and outcomes of our advocacy interventions is crucial but challenging. It requires understanding of the critical issues within the bigger picture of global health, and a structured and analytical mind-set to disentangle and interpret the different forces at play.
We are looking for a widely deployable, well organised, and highly motivated
