Health Poverty Action (HPA) is an international NGO (UK Registered Charity Number 290535) which has been working in Laos since 1994. Prior to 2011 we were operating under the name Health Unlimited.
We are currently seeking a Country Programme Co-ordinator for our Laos programme. This is an excellent opportunity to work in an established country programme covering nutrition, maternal and child health and mosquito-borne diseases.
The position will support the Country Director, who is currently leading a team of about 40 staff. HPA is looking to consolidate its position in Laos, to strengthen and diversify its range of national projects, and to strengthen regional links with neighbouring HPA programmes in Cambodia, China, Myanmar and Vietnam.
Please refer to the job description for more information about the role.
At Health Poverty Action we celebrate diversity and promote equality and inclusion amongst all of our staff and everyone we work with.
Health Poverty Action recognises that all adults and children have equal rights to protection from abuse and exploitation. Health Poverty Action condemns exploitation and inappropriate behaviour, and is committed to taking action for the protection of programme participants. In cases where positions include a high level of safeguarding risk, police checks or local equivalents will be carried out.
