The City Cancer Challenge Foundation is looking for a Partnership and Technical Assistance Manager
Job title: Partnership and Technical Assistance Manager
Reports to: Director of Global Public Affairs
Location: Geneva, Switzerland
Availability: April 2019
I.About City Cancer Challenge
City Cancer Challenge (C/Can) was launched by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) at the 2017 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos as a coordinated response to the urgent need to support resource-limited countries in reducing their growing cancer burden. The initiative was designed to leverage the untapped potential of taking an integrated approach to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 3 (Health), 11 (Cities), and 17 (Partnerships).
Our mission is to build a collective movement of cities, supported by global and local partners, to deliver quality, equitable, and sustainable cancer treatment solutions for all. To achieve our mission, we work in partnership with a network of motivated city and regional leaders, ministries of health, civil society organizations, industry, development actors, health professionals, and patient advocates to achieve a direct and concrete impact on cancer mortality rates.
Since its launch, C/Can and its partners have implemented localized action plans in four “Key Learning Cities,” which have the potential to improve cancer care for over 25 million people. Building on the success of the Key Learning Cities, we have now launched the next phase of the initiative, which aims to scale up support from 4 cities to a wider network of 20 cities in all regions. By empowering our local city leaders to drive the process—from identifying needs to designing solutions to implementation—we are developing innovative approaches that can transform cancer care worldwide.
II.Summary of the role
The Partnership and Technical Assistance Manager will take the lead in coordinating the mobilisation of Technical Assistance (TA) across all City Cancer Challenge cities. By identifying, engaging and managing a diverse range of strategic partnerships, the individual will support the development and implementation of tailored city solutions for cancer treatment and care.
If you’re interested in joining our team, please send a CV and Cover Letter to email@example.com with the subject line Partnership and Technical Assistance Manager. Deadline 7th of March.
