About Handicap International:

The situation of disability and Handicap International’s presence in the country: In Afghanistan, Handicap International conducted the National Disability Survey in Afghanistan 2005 (NDSA), with the cooperation of the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled. The prevalence of persons with disabilities identified by the survey stands at 2.7% which represents a population of between 747,500 and 867,100 Afghans (according to the United Nations Population Fund estimates for the Afghan Ministry of Public Health finalized November 2004). This surmounts to every 1 in 5 households. After decades of war, which result in populations affected by conflict, forced displacement, malnutrition, absence of health care, etc., disability is a crucial issue. Families caring for a family member with a disability are more vulnerable and likely to be poor. The proportion of active members in a household is a relevant indicator of vulnerability. The risk of an event provoking poverty is lower when there are more active people to cope with the difficulty. Unemployment rates are systematically higher for persons with disabilities than for any other population group, 80% of which are located in countries which have adopted the World Bank and International Monetary Fund’s Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP). Handicap International has been present in Afghanistan since the 1980’s, initially in the refugee camps in Pakistan and later in 1996 through the establishment of a national program in Afghanistan. Its work was initially centred on anti-mine actions, particularly in the South and West regions, and physical rehabilitation via an orthopaedic-fitting and rehabilitation centre in Kandahar. It has since expanded the scope of its work to include support to disabled people’s organizations and the economic and social inclusion of people with disabilities, including landmines and explosive remnants of war’s survivors. Today, Handicap International Afghanistan works in the Southern (Kandahar and Nimruz), Western (Herat) and Central (Kabul) regions of Afghanistan, thus covering more than half of the people with disabilities in the country. Handicap International in Afghanistan currently operates projects both through local partners and directly, these are managed by about 200 national staff in three locations, two bases (Kandahar and Herat) and Kabul main office. HI works in the following sectors: Disability and Victim Assistance advocacy and awareness Capacity Building of Disabled People and Survivors Organisations Physical rehabilitation and training of Physiotherapists and P&O professionals Inclusive Livelihoods Emergency PSS and Physical Rehabilitation OBJECTIVES OF THE POST Main realisations to be achieved on the project and in the function – information relative to the Project Action Plan or programme strategy (e.g. : post to be taken over by a member of national staff at some point, transfer of activities to a partner, revision of HR policy, development of partnerships, definition of an X-year strategy, etc.).
