The Director, Resource Mobilization, Measles & Rubella oversees the mobilization of resources for the UN Foundation’s engagement with the Measles & Rubella Initiative (M&RI). The UN Foundation is a founding partner of the Measles & Rubella Initiative, and the Director will work closely with the Senior Director, Global Health to strategically oversee the work that the UN Foundation does to support the partnership, both working across teams inside UNF who are also engaged in advocacy and resource mobilization efforts (Shot@life, US Advocacy team, Integrated Development), and supporting the broader partnership as a primary external representative with donors, M&RI supported countries, and other key stakeholders.
The Director, Resource Mobilization, Measles & Rubella will drive the advocacy and external relations strategy for the M&RI, in coordination with UNICEF, WHO, U.S. CDC, American Red Cross and other partners; engage donors and sustain donor relationships; ensure operationalization of funds and secure additional funding; oversee development of a coordinated resource mobilization strategy; engage with technical experts and M&RI supported regions and countries to understand and advise the program on resource needs and gaps.
The Measles & Rubella Initiative (www.measlesrubellainitiative.org) aims to reach the measles and rubella elimination goals of the Global Vaccine Action Plan by supporting countries to raise coverage of measles, rubella and other vaccines; fund, plan, implement and monitor quality supplementary campaigns; investigate outbreaks and provide technical and financial support for effective outbreak response, propose and participate in solutions to strengthen immunization delivery; and support a global laboratory network for measles and rubella.
The Director, Resource Mobilization, Measles & Rubella operationally reports to the Senior Director, Global Health at the UN Foundation, and works closely with M&RI Resource Mobilization and Advocacy members from across the partnership to support the broader partnership’s resource mobilization and external relations goals. The Director will also work closely with the Chair of the M&RI Leadership Team, currently the Senior Fellow for Global Health Diplomacy at the UN Foundation.
