Job Opening at Alliance for Reproductive Health Rights (ARHR)
POSITION: Programme Officer
The Alliance for Reproductive Health Rights (ARHR), founded in 2004, is a network of Ghanaian NGOs and Community-based Organizations (CBOS) that promotes a rights-based approach to reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (RMNCAH) through advocacy, research, and capacity building. ARHR leads a coalition of civil society organizations in advocating for enhanced health systems in order to attain UHC, with a focus on increasing investment in PHC.
Moreover, ARHR holds a number of meetings with people from civil society, business, academia, the media, and the government to demand that health resources be used more wisely and that money be spent on things that are supported by evidence. ARHR also engages in policy advocacy by tracking gaps between policy and practice and using evidence to inform a policy review.
- The Programme Officer will assist the Ghana Health Service in scaling up long-acting reversible and permanent contraceptive methods at public sites across the country as part of a USAID-funded initiative to accelerate family planning achievements in Ghana.
- To make FP services funded by the National Health Insurance Agency (NHIA) available in all districts, the implementation will use strategic approaches like training healthcare workers, improving quality, and giving specific help to regional Ghana Health Service directorates. These will help the Government of Ghana (GOG) become better at managing FP services.
- The program envisions civil society involvement in building the enabling environment for adolescent-responsive family planning.
ROLES, DUTIES, AND RESPONSIBILITIES
- Conduct collaborative training for FP stewards to deepen understanding of adolescent, community, and frontline provider values, social norms, power, behaviors, and perspectives that influence FP service acceptance.
- Strengthen male allies’ capacity for FP2030 commitments as a tool for incorporating male perspectives and voices in FP discourse.
- Promote the use of FP services through referrals to health facilities by involving ARHR’s Adolescent Health Champions in peer education by debunking myths and misconceptions.
- Encourage the creation of inclusive, user-friendly communication resources (fact sheets, infographics, video documentaries, and other evidence briefs) to aid FP education and advocacy initiatives at the national and sub-national levels.
- Assist in the development of a social media toolbox for use by groups led by adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) for public participation in order to ensure constant information on FP.
- Increase the agency of adolescents and youth groups (in and out of school) in policy processes, implementation, and monitoring by strengthening their leadership skills, voice, and power.
- Monitor health-care institutions’ readiness to deliver adolescent-friendly health services, as well as teenagers’ perceptions (experiences) on the quality and responsiveness of FP services and FP 2030 commitments.
- Highlight and address identified deficiencies through the organization of interface sessions and multi-stakeholder and policy conversations involving duty-bearers, adolescents, and AGYW-led groups.
- Strengthen and expand current Community Health Management Committees (CHMCs) to incorporate community-wide youth representation.
- Assist with the development of a landing page on ARHR’s website that will function as a repository or knowledge hub for FP advocacy.
- Any other responsibilities that may be assigned
