NRCS Headquarters, Abuja, Nigeria
Coordinator Health and Care
The Nigerian Red Cross Society (NRCS) was established through an Act of Parliament in 1960. This Act depicts that the NRCS is recognized by the Federal Government of Nigeria as a community based Voluntary Aid Society, auxiliary to and complementing the public authorities in the area of humanitarian interventions. The NRCS was recognized by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in 1961 and admitted by the International Federation of the Red Cross Red Crescent
Societies (IFRC) as the 86th National Society in 1961.
In the past, NRCS faced a number of challenges, which posed a threat to the stability and growth of the institution. This led to a strong dependence on International Partners for funding and thereby threatened the financial sustainability of the Society. Therefore, in 2018 the Governing Board resolved to support senior management to increase the efficiency of the Society’s operations and lead towards its financial sustainability.
In order to achieve this, partnership roundtables were convened to seek technical and financial support from Movement Partners. Commitments were made by a number of the Movement Partners, including the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the British Red Cross (BRC), the Swedish Red Cross (SwRC), the Norwegian Red Cross (NorCross), the Italian Red Cross (ItRC), and the Netherlands Red Cross (NLRC).
With the support from these partners, the Nigerian Red Cross Society developed an approach towards re-positioning the NRCS in the humanitarian and development space through focusing the organization on its core business and adapting the necessary structures, systems and processes to increase efficiency and achieve financial sustainability. While the first steps have been taken, the organization seeks to add to her team the necessary technical and management capacity to drive this process further.
The Health and Care Officer will be responsible for developing and planning programs and trainings in areas relating to health. This position will coordinate the branches in establishing community-based response tools, preparedness and response plans and reporting/ assessment tools.
