Job Description

1. Introduction

1.1 About Humanity & Inclusion

Humanity and Inclusion (formerly Handicap International) is an international non-governmental Organization founded in 1982 and currently located in more than 60 countries worldwide. Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. The organisation works alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, taking action and bearing witness in order to respond to their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

1.2 About Humanity & Inclusion in the country/region

The WISH2ACTION (Women’s Integrated Sexual Health) Consortium brings together six internationally recognised leading organizations in their field to deliver Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights services across all 16 countries. WISH2ACTION’s operational model – the WISH Cluster Model – is a comprehensive, integrated approach to delivering the four WISH outputs in order to ensure equitable access to Family Planning and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), prioritizing the most underserved women and girls, particularly youth under 20, the very poor, and marginalized populations (including people with disability, people displaced or affected by humanitarian crisis, and people living in hard-to-reach areas).

Within the WISH2ACTION Project, Humanity and Inclusion is implementing in six countries (Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Pakistan, Bangladesh and through Remote Technical Assistance to Afghanistan and Mozambique). The mandate of HI is to support in making SRHR services delivered to be more inclusive to persons with disabilities.

The “collection of lessons learnt and good practices” is part of the HI’s global goods.

The Collection of Good Practices and Lessons learnt will be useful in documenting learning on how to offer Disability Inclusive SRHR Services. The “Collection of Good Practices and lessons learnt” will form a rich body of knowledge that will inform future programming in the area of disability inclusiveness for all stakeholders involved in the provision of SRHR services.
