Position: Community Mobilization Officer (Malaria Consortium)__Deadline:15-June

Established in 2003, Malaria Consortium is one of the world’s leading non-profit organisations specialising in the comprehensive prevention, control and treatment of malaria and other communicable diseases among vulnerable and under privileged populations. We increasingly find our work on malaria can be effectively integrated with other similar public health interventions for greater impact and therefore expanded our remit to include child health and neglected tropical disease interventions.

Malaria Consortium (MC) works in Africa and Asia with communities, governments, academic institutions, and local and international organisations, to ensure effective delivery of services, which are supported by strong evidence.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment
  • disease control and elimination
  • systems strengthening
  • research, monitoring and evaluation leading to best practice
  • behaviour change communication
  • national and international advocacy and policy development

Malaria Consortium has had an operational presence in Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar in the Greater Mekong Sub-region for over a decade. Malaria Consortium established an office in Phnom Penh, in early 2009, and has a provincial presence implementing activities from various sub-offices. Malaria Consortium Cambodia has always assisted at both the provincial and national levels to strengthen the capacity of government officers and to provide technical support for malaria control and elimination.

Since December 2015, Malaria Consortium has been supporting mobile malaria workers (MMWs) providing early diagnosis, treatment of malaria in line with national malaria guidelines, referral services, IEC/BCC and vector control, targeting high-risk groups, mostly forest-goers, along the Cambodian border with Thailand, Laos and Vietnam.
