Jobs at World Lung Foundation (WLF) - Tanzania

Job title: Maternal Health Consultants (Two Posts)
Duration: 1 month
Duty station: Dar-es-salaam, Kigoma, Morogoro and Pwani

Background
Since 2008, the World Lung Foundation (WLF) Maternal Health Program has contributed to the Government of Tanzania’s efforts to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality by improving women’s access to good-quality emergency obstetric and neonatal care (EmONC). EmONC is the package of health services necessary to treat life-threatening complications that cause the majority of maternal and neonatal deaths.

The WLF program currently works in 37 public facilities in the regions of Kigoma, Morogoro and Pwani to bring good-quality EmONC to rural, isolated populations. WLF has upgraded health centers, strengthens district hospitals, and trains and mentors Assistant Medical Officers to provide emergency obstetric and neonatal care including cesarean sections, trains and mentors nurse-midwives/clinical officers to provide anesthesia, skilled birth attendance and basic emergency obstetric care.

WLF’s strategic plan 2015-2018 underscores the need to share lessons learned from the
program implementation to the wider local, regional and international scientific audience for possible scale-up. To this end we seek to mobilize and organize routine data and information from our archives and from facility records in the project-supported facilities for possible dissemination. Consultant(s) will work with WLF experts to map, collect and organize data on ruptured uterus across all the supported facilities. This task will be supplemented by documentation of case by case records for the proposed variables related to uterine rupture for five years, from January 2011 to December, 2015, by visiting 15 supported facilities.
