Consultancy: Demographer/Statistician - Supporting UNICEF activities for mortality estimation - D&A, DRP - NYHQ, Requisition# 510537

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

Background & Rationale

UNICEF is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to advocate for the protection of children's rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential. Delivering and sustaining results for children requires action by both governments and the public at large. Child survival monitoring is one of the main activities for UNICEF as a response to the commitments to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other international agreements. UNICEF monitors and assesses child mortality indicators at the global, regional and country level and to these efforts, the organization is engaging governments, civil society, international organizations, academic organizations and individuals working in this area. UNICEF and other members of the UN Inter-agency Group for Child Mortality Estimation (UN IGME) including WHO, the UN Population Division and The World Bank Group generate child mortality estimates every year for monitoring progress on child survival. The UN IGME and its Technical Advisory Group aim to work on improving the methodology to assess data quality and to estimate child mortality.
