    Johanniter has been active in DRC since 1995, with a focus on North Kivu since 2008.

    The overall objective of Johanniter International Assistance’s Program in North Kivu, DRC, is to reduce mortality and morbidity by improving the health conditions and reducing vulnerability of IDPs and host population. Johanniter’s interventions aim to improve, in close cooperation with the MoH, the provision of and access to quality primary health care and to support the improved nutrition status of children under five, pregnant and lactating women and other vulnerable people (such as elderly people, people with disability, people living with HIV/AIDS, and survivors of SGBV). Furthermore, the improved access to water, sanitation and hygiene is part of Johanniter’s DRC programme.

    Currently there are 5 international and 38 national employees working for Johanniter in DRC. Whilst internal regulations and a salary system for national staff is in place, this needs profound revision and update, including an external benchmark. Revision of job descriptions and organizational structure to meet the operational needs now and in future are to be executed within this frame. Furthermore there is a need to further other HR-policies (such as in the field of recruitment, learning and development, performance management). All those changes are summarized in a comprehensive HR-reform.

    The current Fin-HR-Admin Coordinator usually is responsible for the management of HR and Administration. However, since besides the HR-reform there are other projects ongoing in finances which require significant attention. Therefore it was decided to split the function of HR-Admin and Finance Coordination into two functions initially for a period of six months in order to allow the HR-Admin-Coordinator to fully concentrate on the HR-reform. Both functions will work very closely with each other.
