The PCRV will support GSH in designing internal communication tools and SOPs and guide the communications department and the hospital at large to effectively conduct health campaigns and other resource awareness activities. The PCRV will also review and support management in updating the crisis management plan

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Eswatini together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
