CARE has committed itself to building a common and consistent identity across the region, in a way that is consistent with CARE's global vision and mission, in a region that represents a nexus for the struggle for girls' and women's rights. In seeking to be the leading international organization that 'is committed to ensuring the rights of girls and women in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region', CARE also acknowledges the need to work with regional stakeholders and to hold ourselves and others accountable to (and to be held to account by) the impact groups with whom we work. The MENA region is the most conservative region globally with respect to women's and girl's rights. In the 2012 Global Gender Gap Report, not only does the region rank the lowest, but it also shows the least progress in the last 10 years. As such, CARE's work on these issues, even in such complex and often volatile contexts that characterize the region, must also serve the organization's global commitment to gender equality and women's empowerment. In recognition of challenges and opportunities associated with humanitarian context and long term programming in the region, and as a result of recommendations made developed in the MENA regional strategy, it has been agreed that CARE will develop three programmatic theme teams within the MENA Region, one of which is centered on women's rights. The Senior Advisor, GJP/CM will frame and guide CARE's social and gender justice agenda throughout the MENA region as well as lead the implementation of the MENA vision and strategy in order to achieve the MENA region's strategic objectives by 2017. Responsibilities and Tasks: Develops knowledge, learning and sharing capacity at regional level that reflects CARE's commitment to the MENA Strategy. Builds strategic partnerships and bridges across the region/ convening spaces for dialogue. Leads regional advocacy efforts on issues of gender equality (GE) and women's empowerment (WE), as relevant to MENA, and contributes to CARE's Global Advocacy Agenda. Developing CARE's Regional Program Experience base. Perform other duties as assigned. QUALIFICATIONS: Bachelor's Degree in social sciences such as International development, foreign policy, public health, gender studies.

****************************** *MARKET ACCESS ADVISOR WASHINGTON, DC
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through CAMRIS International partnered with IAP World Services Inc., (IAPWS), to recruit and hire qualified individuals for a Market Access Advisor, Office of the Assistant Administrator, Bureau for Global Health, United States Agency for International Development. BACKGROUND: In 2012, the White House announced that USAID would establish a center of excellence in the Global Health Bureau to accelerate the development, introduction and scale up of priority global health interventions. This new Center - the Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact - will promote and reinforce innovative, business-minded approaches to address the key bottlenecks in development, introduction and scale-up - applying business and marketplace principles to accelerate impact against some of the world's most important health challenges. Despite the existence of hundreds of technologies to improve global health, relatively few are available to save lives in the developing world, where morbidity and mortality burdens are greatest. An antiseptic that costs less than 10 cents could be used to reduce neonatal infection across South Asia. An injection that costs just 60 cents could halve a premature infant's risk of respiratory distress. A set of pills costing less than 1 dollar could reduce maternal death from postpartum hemorrhage. All of these technologies exist, yet none reaches more than a tiny fraction of the mothers and babies whose lives they could save. Those technologies that do eventually reach those hardest to reach populations often take far too long to get there. To address these and other challenges, the Center: Serves as a catalyst, driving innovation and partnerships; Works with the Bureau's technical offices to help prioritize existing and new innovations and interventions that align directly with the Agency's priorities in global health; Supports rapid introduction of and/or access to these priority interventions; and Seeks not only to develop best practices in innovation, introduction and uptake across sectors, but to push the boundaries of current thinking to improve the health and efficiency of the marketplace.

Specific activities may include analyzing bottlenecks to uptake, designing introduction strategies, assessing market dynamics, encouraging entry of new suppliers, ensuring affordable pricing, supporting user research and segmentation, and maximizing efficiency in product development, manufacturing and procurement practices. To do so, he/she will develop strategic and analytical tools to address introduction and uptake challenges, apply them to product- specific challenges, and disseminate the approach and learnings for broader application across product categories and health sectors. The Market Access Advisor will represent USAID on access issues and build and manage strong relationships internally with technical and mission staff and externally with key stakeholders, including senior executives at manufacturers, developers and other implementing organizations as well as senior officials from foundations and governmental, multilateral and nongovernmental organizations.
