The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), a highly prestigious, reputable & world’s largest humanitarian organization, operates in more than 120 countries and territories, bringing life-saving assistance in emergencies, building pathways to peace, stability, and prosperity for people recovering from conflict, disasters and the impact of climate change and supporting sustainable and resilient livelihoods for a world with zero hunger. At WFP, people are at the heart of everything we do, and the vision of the future WFP workforce is one of diverse, committed, skilled, and high-performing teams, selected on merit, operating in a healthy and inclusive work environment, living WFP's values (Integrity, Collaboration, Commitment, Humanity, and Inclusion) and working with partners to save and change the lives of those WFP serves.

The Regional Bureau Dakar (RBD) provides policy guidance, technical support, and oversight for operations in 19 countries west and central Africa where WFP’s efforts contribute towards the eradication of hunger and malnutrition.


The progress made in the 19 countries comprising RBD against the 2025 World Health Assembly nutrition targets remains insufficient. West and Central Africa is the world’s only region in which the number of stunted and wasted children continues to rise. In the Sahel, recurrent climatic and economic shocks, rising and fluctuating food prices, and demographic pressures coupled with minimal coverage of basic social services have resulted in chronically high undernutrition among mothers and children, especially in pastoral areas and during the agricultural lean season.
In this region, a combination of humanitarian, development and peacebuilding interventions are being implemented and complement each other. This nexus of short-term (emergency response) and medium-to long term programming (development approach) is essential to ensure the appropriate balance between emergency response to acute shocks and strengthening of systems so resilience of nations, systems, communities and populations to new future shocks is improved.
In addition, HIV remains a global health crisis fuelled by inequalities with approximately 1.5 million new HIV infections and 680,000 AIDS-related deaths in 2020. Despite relatively low HIV prevalence rates in West and Central Africa (WCA), there were an estimated 4.7 million adults and children living with HIV in the region in 2020, making it one of the world’s most affected. The region accounted for more than one third of new HIV infections among children and more than one fifth of AIDS related deaths globally, reflecting significant gaps in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission and the test, treat and retain strategy.
Nutritional care remains an important component of the comprehensive care for people living with HIV (PLHIV), especially in areas where malnutrition and food insecurity are prevalent, and where monotonous, staple-based diets are the norm. Targeted food and nutrition vulnerability assessments conducted in 14 RBD countries with WFP RBD support reveal that malnutrition among PLHIV on treatment remains a serious concern, and that numerous HIV-affected households are food insecure with limited livelihood options. Both malnutrition and food insecurity limit treatment uptake, adherence and outcomes for people living with HIV. WFP’s support to the HIV-agenda has shi????ed towards strengthening safety nets through cash transfers and livelihood support to develop income generating activities, coupled with nutritional sensitization, and with the aim of empowering them to live healthier and more dignified lives.

Under the overall guidance of the Senior Regional Nutrition Advisor, the HIV & Nutrition Integration Officer will report to the Regional Nutritionist and will work in close collaboration with the whole Nutrition Unit as well as with the other units of the regional bureau. The HIV & Nutrition Integration Officer’s main responsibilities are (i) to assist Country offices in the region in the design and implementation of HIV interventions and in HIV and nutrition integration in line with the WFP HIV policy and the WFP Nutrition Policy, (ii) to support HIV interventions and HIV integration in WFP emergency, relief and development assistance, (iii) to support advancing the social protection and HIV and nutrition sensitive social protection agendas at regional and CO level, and (iv) to act as WFP’s HIV focal point at the regional level. Specific duties and responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

Programme support and capacity strengthening
Assist in HIV and nutrition context analysis and response planning for improved HIV and nutrition programming, including both nutrition assessment, counselling and support (NACS) and links to non-nutrition programming such as social protection.
