The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and the Centre for Gender Studies and Advocacy (CEGENSA) have set up a collaborative project on the Africa-based Gender Technical Platform for Gender Responsive Malaria Advocacy and Policy. The project aims to strengthen the capacity of CEGENSA’s gender experts in gender integration and malaria, to enable them to provide gender integration technical advisory services for malaria programming and policy. The project shall also manage the Global Malaria and Gender Community of Practice, and generate key evidence and learning at the Gender-Malaria intersection. The successful candidate will work with the project coordinators to document and analyse the entire set-up process and generate key evidence and learning insights at the Gender-Malaria Intersection. S/he will be responsible for supporting the project team in conducting gender analyses of national malaria strategic plans and review of selected malaria-endemic countries.
It is expected that CEGENSA’s Pan-African perspective, through the publication outcomes, will uncover new ways to deal with complex gender-related topics and to identify, contextualize and integrate gender-transformative approaches into malaria advocacy and policy frameworks to advance malaria and gender equality outcomes. The successful candidate will interact closely with the coordinators in this capacity.
