For our Head Office in Amsterdam we are looking for a pro-active and pragmatic Knowledge Network Coordinator with strong networking skills.
HealthNet is a Dutch aid agency that works on health in areas disrupted by war or disasters. In these areas people are facing the immense task of rebuilding society while they suffer from poverty, diseases and the emotional consequences of conflict. We use ‘health’ as both a goal and means: the goal is to reach accessible health care for all. By working on that together with local communities we use ‘health’ as a means to bring people together and to restore mutual trust.
The DCR Knowledge Network
The Dutch Consortium for Rehabilitation (DCR) is a collaborative venture of four non-governmental organizations (ZOA, Save the Children, CARE and HealthNet TPO), currently implementing a 5-year programme financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The DCR programme is implemented in Burundi, DR Congo, Liberia, Sudan, South Sudan and Uganda. The DCR is committed to knowledge networking in order to improve the program quality. The consortium’s Knowledge Network (KN) was established in September 2011 and currently consists of more than 140 persons. The KN is an action network intended to fine-tune DCR’s multi-sector intervention models, strengthen the capacity of local civil society actors, and empower local communities. The Knowledge Network is coordinated by HealthNet TPO Amsterdam, with 5-year funding from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. For more information, please go to http://www.dcr-africa.org/en/KnowledgeNetwork/
In December 2015, the DCR programme will come to an end. In the final months of the programme, the Coordinator of the DCR Knowledge Network will focus on the consolidation of the DCR learning mechanisms, and will contribute to the documentation of (best) practices, and the dissemination of lessons learned to a wider community of practice and policy makers.
