Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP), a not-for-profit human development organization, combines the science and art of strategic communication to help people around the world make better choice for themselves, their families and their communities. Johns Hopkins established CCP over 20 years ago in recognition of the pivotal role communication plays in the way people think and behave about health and development issues. As a leading international authority on public health, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is dedicated to protecting health and saving lives. The mission of CCP is to use its core strengths —strategic behavior change, knowledge management, advocacy, capacity building and research and evaluation— to achieve these goals. We are currently seeking qualified candidates to serve as Provincial Coordinator in Jakarta.
Project Description: The Rapidly Expand Access to FP in Selected Districts in Indonesia (“My Choice”) project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is designed to contribute to the Government of Indonesia’s family planning goal to increase the nation’s mCPR (modern Contraceptive Prevalence Rate) by addressing barriers to supply and demand issues and creating a consumer-driven environment where every woman can choose and access the right method given her life stage in 11 selected districts through three components: demand-generation initiative, facility readiness, and supply chain management. In collaboration with BKKBN (The National Family Planning Coordinating Board), the project will use a blended learning approach that combines formal and informal capacity to strengthen its capacity to lead Indonesia’s FP agenda to ensure that BKKBN can continue the important work of the project after it is completed.
