Job Description

Handicap International Federation (HI) is an independent and impartial aid organization, created in 1982, working across 63 countries. HI works alongside the vulnerable populations, whatever the context, taking action to respond to their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights. Present in Nepal since 2000, HI works through a network of local partner organizations in the area of health and physical rehabilitation, inclusive education and resilience including emergency response to improve the living conditions and involvement of the most vulnerable populations in Nepal.

Physical Rehabilitation Activity (PRA)) is 6 years program funded by USAID which is aiming to integrate rehabilitation service in the Public Health System. This program started in June 2019 and is working closely with government authorities, Disability People Organizations (DPOs); physiotherapy unit in District hospitals; private rehabilitation services providers and rehabilitation professional associations. The physical rehabilitation activity (PRA) project supports the establishment of a sustainable, integrated, public-private rehabilitation system in order to improve the mobility and functional independence of persons with physical disabilities and other individuals in need of rehabilitation services. The project has three objectives: (1) the quality of rehabilitation services is strengthened, (2) access to rehabilitation service is increased and (3) sustainability of the five existing USAID/HI supported PRCs is strengthened.

To achieve the project goal and objectives, HI contributes to the establishment of a sustainable rehabilitation services system through a health system strengthening approach at the national, provincial and municipal levels. The approach will be strengthening the six core areas: (i) governance and leadership capacities of central and local authorities; (ii) health and rehabilitation human resources capacities; (iii) rehabilitation information system development: (iv) medical and producttechnologies, including assistive products; (v) finance; and, (vi) service delivery. This will be achieved through the guidance of World Health Organization (WHO) frameworks that integrate rehabilitation into health systems, towards universal access to appropriate and affordable care.
