Health Project Manager – Ukraine



Following a first step dedicated to assessment both in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries HI is now developing a large-scale inclusive, immediate and multi-sectoral humanitarian response to address the most acute needs of vulnerable conflict-affected populations in Ukraine and in Moldova in the frame of a 2-countries program.
HI has designed a multi-sectorial intervention aiming at meeting the Protection, Health and Basic Needs of vulnerable conflict-affected populations, while mitigating the risks caused by explosive ordnance contamination and facilitating the delivery of aid and inclusive humanitarian action in Ukraine. HI will primarily target the most vulnerable individuals including those injured, persons with disability, women, children, and older people, addressing the needs of internally displaced persons having fled their homes in search for safety, as well as those unable to flee and yet affected by the large-scale conflict.
In response to the significant health needs exacerbated by damages to health infrastructures, restrictions of movement as a result of ongoing hostilities, and the targeting of health facilities in some areas, HI aims to improve access to quality physical rehabilitation and mental health and psychosocial services (MHPSS) for conflict-affected vulnerable population (including injured), while also strengthening the capacity of existing health structures.
Basic Needs
To respond to the most acute needs for displaced households hosted by the local population or living in collective centres, HI will ensure they have access to sufficient and appropriate food, hygiene and non-food items (NFI) items, including tailored items responding to the specific needs of infants, older people and persons with disabilities. To this extend, HI will tailor its intervention modalities upon household needs whilst considering local market capacities in various geographical areas.
HI will ensure that vulnerable populations have access to tailored protection services (i.e. identification; orientation/information; direct service provision or referrals and tailored support to access existing services).
Recent and ongoing attacks having dangerously exacerbated Explosive Ordnance (EO) contamination in Ukraine, HI will also conduct a multi-pronged approach to EO risk education and CPP, adaptable to the evolution of the conflict and humanitarian situation.
In light of the grave concerns for vulnerable populations in Ukraine, including persons with disabilities, HI will not only ensure that responses are tailored to specific needs throughout its intervention, but will also foster a disability- inclusive humanitarian response.
ATLAS Logistics
ATLAS Logistique will operate a last-kilometre logistic platform (transport & storage) as close as possible to the area of distribution. In parallel and on an ongoing basis, ATLAS Logistique will conduct an in-depth analysis of the logistical capacities of the Ukrainian commercial sector and its adequacy to humanitarian needs in order to orient the AL operational response towards potential bottlenecks and gaps.
