Health Coordinator

Background:

 
GOAL has been implementing health and HIV activities in Nairobi for over 10 years however in recent years the programme approach has changed from direct service delivery to working through local partners.  

GOAL works in a variety of informal settlements in Nairobi and targets its health activities toward those living with HIV and vulnerable youth.  

GOAL’s strategic plan for the next 5 years (2012-2015) is based on lessons learnt over the past few years and clearly identified current priority health needs in these communities.     

To date much of the focus has been on support to those affected by HIV and working with vulnerable youth.  

GOAL implements its work via local partners and with the MoH in selected health facilities in informal settlements across the city.

The population of Nairobi is increasing dramatically primarily in the informal settlements as people leave the rural areas in increasing numbers due to the increasing drought of recent years and rising food prices.   

In the informal settlements, urban food insecurity, high levels of child mortality (particularly in children < 2 years), chronic child under nutrition, early onset of first pregnancy in young women/girls as well as the risk of STIs and HIV are just some of the complex challenges
