Among others, the ALPHA Network harmonizes diverse data sets into a common format so as to conduct comparative studies and meta-analyses on pooled data sets.

The Research Fellow in Demography & Health will join a team of analysts in London to work on a 3-year research project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to estimate HIV incidence and mortality, and in the comparison of population-based estimates with those emanating from routinely collected data in health facilities.

UNDP Project Manager advertisement for the Malawi national registration project

Applications are opened for a current job opening at the UNDP to manage a $50 million national registration project in Malawi. The national registration process was launched by His Excellency the President on 27 October, and UNDP has mobilized the entire budget to implement the project over the next number of years, including a 40% contribution from the Malawian government.

This is by far UNDP’s largest national registration project, and the one for which we have the largest responsibility, including procurement of the registration equipment. Mass registration of the population, and distribution of the national identity card, is expected to commence in early 2017. The responsibility of the post is reflected in its Director-level grade (P6, the UNDP equivalent to a UN Secretariat D1 post).
