WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM ADVISOR
KABUL, AFGHANISTAN

The Asia Foundation/ Women Empowerment Program/ Afghanistan seeks an advisor to provide technical assistance and support for a three year project funded by the Royal Netherlands Embassy of Afghanistan to implement Support for Non-State Justice Providers and Advocates for Peace in Afghanistan project. The Support for Non-State Justice Providers and Advocates for Peace in Afghanistan project contains two complementary components which will focus on: 1) enhancing the efficacy and responsiveness of the informal justice sector within Kunduz province - with a focus on the protection and promotion of women's rights - by building the capacity of non-state justice providers and strengthening coordination between state and non-state justice mechanisms; and 2) establishing community-based Advocates for Peace Groups (APGs) in four provinces (Kunduz, Parwan, Bamyan and Balkh) committed to acting as agents for resolving conflicts at the local level and promoting inclusive and participatory strategies to mitigate conflict and promote peace and social reconciliation. The two components of the project have been designed to contribute to the long-term goal of stabilizing Afghanistan using a 'bottom up' approach, through enhanced access to justice and the promotion of inclusive and meaningful peacebuilding strategies. The objectives of the project include: 1) Developing the capacity of non-state justice providers in Kunduz province, particularly in relation to enhancing their ability to understand legal concepts and protect and promote women's rights; 2) Enhancing coordination between State and non-state justice sector providers in Kunduz province; 3) Establishing community-based APGs and building their capacity to resolve local- level disputes and promoting social reconciliation and sustainable peace in four provinces; and 4) Fostering linkages between relevant stakeholders to promote synergy in peacebuilding and social reconciliation efforts. The expected results of the Support for Non-State Justice Providers and Advocates for Peace in Afghanistan project include: Increased knowledge of relevant national laws and principles of human rights among non-state justice sector actors and increased capacity among these providers to analyze conflicts and mediate cases to aid in resolving disputes in a just and equitable manner; Easier access among women to the non-state justice sector as both claimants and agents of change, and greater sensitivity to women's rights among informal justice providers, leading to more satisfactory resolution of women's disputes; Strengthened coordination between the state and non-state justice sectors at the local level in order to facilitate increased access to justice and the speedy and just resolution of disputes; Increased linkages and understanding between the state and non-state justice providers cognizant of the fact that improved understanding promotes improved access to justice for all Afghans.

COUNTRY REPRESENTATIVE
TANZANIA

The International Training and Education Center for Health is seeking a Country Representative in Tanzania. The International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH) is a global network that works with local partners to develop skilled health care workers and strong national health systems in resource-limited countries. I-TECH promotes local ownership to sustain effective health systems. I-TECH envisions a world in which all people have access to high quality, compassionate, and equitable health care. I-TECH is a global health program of the University of Washington (UW) Department of Global Health in Seattle, in partnership with the University of California - San Francisco. I-TECH operates programs and employs staff in multiple countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Caribbean Region. I-TECH, as a center within the UW Department of Global Health (DGH), acts as the administrative home for numerous sponsored projects and has received delegated authority from the department to maintain policies and procedures that protect the interests of its faculty/ Principal Investigators (PIs) and the University. A key objective for I-TECH is to assure that PIs working through the I-TECH network and country programs have the authority and support they need to assure that their work is carried out as they direct, in a timely manner and compliant with UW and sponsor policies. In Tanzania, I-TECH is one of the implementing partners for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Global AIDS Program (CDC GAP). At the invitation of CDC, I-TECH is collaborating with international stakeholders to support the scale-up of training programs and clinical services for HIV in Tanzania. The I-TECH Country Representative, with support from the Seattle Headquarters Team Lead and other HQ staff, is responsible for ensuring the fulfilment and administration of project activities in Tanzania. The Country Representative is accountable directly to the PIs for carrying out the activities of the awards in Tanzania, and to the I-TECH Managing Director for assuring compliance with human resources (HR), legal, and financial management. The Managing Director is accountable to the Chair and to PIs to ensure that I-TECH effectively supports project implementation and compliance with accepted grants management practices. This dual accountability assures that PIs are able to control the quality and cost effective implementation of work for which they are ultimately accountable, and that I-TECH is accountable to PIs and to UW and its governing bodies (i.e., UWorld boards) for maintenance of past, present, and future assets in a long-term sustainable infrastructure. In summary, the I-TECH Country Representative is accountable programmatically to those PIs whose work they are responsible for carrying out in that country. PIs have the final word on how the work is carried out. In addition to the responsibilities of a PI, the I-TECH Managing Director is responsible for assuring compliance with the human resources, legal and financial mechanisms that allow work to be carried out in a compliant way. In countries where there are multiple PIs, this position is accountable to each of them for a particular scope of work. If needed, and in rare cases of conflict, the I-TECH Managing Director will facilitate conflict resolution among these key decision- makers. GENERAL FUNCTION: The position of Country Representative requires an individual with demonstrated expertise in public health program management and capacity development. The position requires effective communication with both domestic and international staff, the CDC Country Office in Tanzania, local Ministry of Health and other governmental bodies, US-based funders and other implementing partners within and beyond Tanzania. The Country Representative must provide leadership in developing sustainable programs and cope with rapid changes in both funding and programmatic direction as dictated by the funder, and effectively use available resources to meet those expectations. In addition, the Country Representative is required to use sophisticated problem-solving skills and to successfully interface and communicate within the organization, across the I-TECH network, and externally to local stakeholders. This position will take responsibility in fulfilling I-TECH's scope of work by managing the implementation of I-TECH training, technical, and program activities to ensure that work plans are developed for each activity and deadlines are met. EXAMPLES OF DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: As a dynamic program in which scopes of work vary based on award activity, the following duties are considered examples, and it is not an exhaustive list. As stated above, the primary function of this position is to ensure fulfilment of I-TECH's scope of work. Program Leadership (50%): Success is measured by the extent to which the I-TECH Country Representative advances the organization's mission, vision, and strategic priorities. Examples of activities: Ensure full implementation of grants to the maximal extent possible. This will be evaluated based on the deliverables in the work plan.
