GHSA - USG COORDINATION AND IMPLEMENTATION SPECIALIST FOR WEST AFRICA
WASHINGTON, DC

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through CAMRIS International partnered with IAP World Services Inc. (IAPWS), to recruit and hire qualified individuals for GHSA - USG Coordination and implementation Specialist for West Africa, United States Agency for International Development. ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: In today's globalized world, the speed with which newly emergent diseases can surface and spread, as illustrated by the H1N1 2009 pandemic virus, raises serious public health, economic, security and development concerns. It also underscores the need for the global community to act pre- emptively and systematically to improve individual countries' abilities to earlier identify and quickly mitigate health threats arising within their borders. Most importantly, the threat posed by new infectious diseases arising from animal reservoirs (zoonotic diseases) argues for a rethinking of standard strategies for the prevention, detection and response of diseases and their progenitors to reflect a more inclusive and strategic partnership across the public health, animal health and environmental sectors if we are to be able to address emergent disease threats before they pose an overwhelming global threat. The majority of all new, emerging and re-emerging diseases affecting humans at the beginning of the twenty-first century have originated from animals. Many of these infectious diseases are of serious concern to human and animal health, and they are emerging in places where humans, wildlife, and domestic animals are increasingly in contact. The emergence of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronavirus in 2003 and the H1N1-2009 pandemic influenza virus illustrate the consequences of not having in place capacities to detect the early stages of spillover, amplification, and spread of a new disease threat - that is, while it is still circulating (and evolving) principally in animals and before the potential threat has acquired the ability to efficiently transmit among humans. In both instances the public responses came after the viruses had fully emerged as pandemic threats. On the other hand, the emergence of the H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza virus in Hong Kong in 1997 and its re-emergence in Southeast Asia in 2003, the early detection of H7N9 virus in China, and the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus in Saudi Arabia have provided important opportunities to monitor a threat after it has spilled over, but before large-scale amplification and spread - and enable the world a longer window to prepare for the possibility of a new health threat, including the production of diagnostics and vaccines and the stockpiling of antivirals. The early recognition of a potential threat also allows for a global effort to take preemptive steps to bring the spread of the virus under greater control - and by extension possibly reduce the opportunities for it to emerge as a pandemic threat. Importantly, work, in part supported under USAID's Global Health Security and Development (GHSD) portfolio, has advanced our understanding of disease spillover, amplification, and spread by highlighting the strong correlation between "high risk" geographic areas, animal hosts, microbial agents, and people. This collective body of work, in turn, has led to the recognition that risk-based intervention strategies enable targeting disease detection to those places, populations, times or situations where risk of viral spillover, amplification, and spread is greatest and the likelihood of detecting these events is highest. As of April 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports over 25,500 suspected and confirmed cases of Ebola in West Africa and more than 10,00 Ebola- related deaths. The Ebola crisis is derailing lives and livelihoods in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. Fears of infection have severely disrupted economic and social activity, delivery of government services, and international development efforts in West Africa with secondary effects in other parts of Africa. If the epidemic is not contained during 2015, these costs will multiply dramatically. The United States is actively engaged and in December 2014, Congress approved the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2015 (SFOAA), authorizing $5.4 billion to fight the Ebola crisis, including nearly $2.5 billion allocated to USAID. Along with EVD response and preparedness, the White House and Congress have prioritized support for the international GHSA to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease outbreaks, and the SFOAA includes $312 million to USAID for rapid and consistent implementation and whole of government coordination of GHSA over the next few years. As a core contributor to USG implementation of the GHSA action packages, the EPT-2 program will directly improve the capacity of more than 20 focus countries in Africa, Asia, and the Near East to meet GHSA objectives. The effective response to the challenges caused by the emerging multifaceted health threats undoubtedly requires a multi-disciplinary approach. The EVD epidemic, MERS, and a recent reintroduction of AI in poultry in Nigeria are jarring examples of the need for greater capability in all countries and across multiple sectors to rapidly detect and respond to new or re-emerging public health threats. In November 2014 USAID/GHSD launched the second five-year phase of the EPT portfolio (EPT-2). As with its predecessors AI and EPT-1, EPT-2 is focused on mitigating the impact of novel "high-consequence pathogens" arising from animals through a suite of One Health investments with the goal of enabling: early detection of new disease threats; effective control of new threats through enhanced "national-level" preparedness; and, a reduction in the risk of disease emergence by minimizing those practices and behaviors that trigger the "spillover, amplification, and spread" of new viruses. At the core of EPT-2 are seven new areas of strategic focus: Developing longitudinal data sets for understanding the biological drivers of viral evolution, spillover, amplification, and spread. Understanding the human behaviors and practices that underlie the risk of "evolution, spillover, amplification and spread" of new viral threats. Promoting policies and practices that reduce the risk of virus evolution, spillover, amplification, and spread, specifically targeting four areas of risk identified under EPT-1; The Extractive Industry, Urban/ peri-urban markets, Livestock "value chains" in Asia, and Africa Livestock Futures; Supporting national One Health platforms; Investing in the One Health workforce; Strengthening national preparedness to respond to events of public health significance; Strengthening global networks for real-time bio-surveillance. ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: The objective of this position is to provide the USAID GHSD Headquarters team and bilateral USAID Missions with country backstopping, coordination and programmatic support to assist in successful implementation of the USAID/GHSD portfolio. Successful completion of this objective will require working with a wide array of US Government partners, international organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other implementing partners. The GHSA-USG Coordination and implementation Specialist, working with the USAID Mission Health teams in West Africa, will provide technical expertise to the Mission to manage and coordinate activities associated with the USAID/GHSD portfolio as it relates to human and animal health and the environment. The Specialist will liaise with the Agency's GHSD Unit, the Africa Bureau Office of Sustainable Development's Health team and Africa bureau Ebola Unit, the Global Health Bureau Ebola Unit and other relevant agency offices. S/he will ensure that regional planning and response to EVD preparedness, GHSA, and EPT-2 is carried out in accordance with Agency and State Department directives. SPECIFIC DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: Serve as the primary point of contact and liaison between the GHSD team, Mission staff, other USAID teams working on GHSA, and the USG interagency GHSA teams on issues in West Africa region. Responsible for preparing all GHSA required reporting (financial and programmatic) for West Africa, including but not limited to Congressional reporting, audits, and Bureau-specific briefings. Represent GHSD at GHSA meetings, briefings, and/or presentations within USAID, USG interagency, and international partners. Provide backstopping support to the GHSA missions in West Africa, and ensure that GHSD efforts are fully coordinated and USG assets leveraged to the greatest extent possible. Assist, when requested, in data collection, analysis, and report writing pertinent to GHSA reporting. Work with the GHSD AORs to stay abreast of EPT2 activities in West Africa to coordinate, align, and appropriately attribute activities to GHSA. Prepare consolidated budgets for West Africa to account for all GHSA money. TECHNICAL AND PROGRAM OPERATIONS: Liaise with GHSD Unit and other parts of the agency (FM, SPBO, OAA, GC, IG, etc.) on all issues related to the day-to-day business of GHSA Implementation in West Africa. Contribute to efforts to develop and assess technical program approaches for preventing, detecting, and containing outbreaks of avian, pandemic influenza, and other emerging threats globally. Identify and access appropriate resources for these efforts, including the technical and operational coordination of USAID field Missions, cooperating agencies, host countries, and NGOs. Provide technical assistance and support to country and regional-level activities and initiatives, as required. Perform other tasks as required by the AI/OET Unit directors. BUDGET MANAGEMENT: Maintain tools for GHSA budget tracking and management purposes for West Africa, coordinating with regional bureau point people and following-up with missions and other operating units as necessary to ensure that complete, accurate and timely data is captured. Coordinate West Africa GHSA budget implementation, tracking and management matters with related parties in other pillar bureaus, OAA, regional bureaus, missions, etc. as necessary. In collaboration with PPC, analyze authorizing and appropriations legislation to enable the GHSD Unit to track compliance with specific Congressional earmarks, directives, and reporting requirements for West Africa. Perform other tasks as required by the GHSD Unit directors. CERTIFICATIONS, LICENSE, PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS OR OTHER EXPERTISE REQUIRED. The contractor must have: The GS 11 position requires a Bachelor's degree and minimum of 5 years of professional office experience OR a Master's degree and a minimum of 2 years of professional office experience. Experience with international public health programs, preferably infectious disease programs required. 2 years overseas experience working with a public health program in a developing country strongly preferred. Experience with programs/ activities in West Africa strongly preferred. Proficiency in French strongly preferred. Knowledge of international development donor approaches and programs required. Understanding of program budgets and ability to analyze budgetary information required. Demonstrated strong oral and written communications skills required. Demonstrated ability to work in complex environments with multiple organizations required. The candidates must possess the ability to effectively present information and respond to questions from groups of managers, clients, customers, and the general public.

This Center - the Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact - promotes and reinforces innovative, business-minded approaches to address the key bottlenecks in development, introduction and scale-up - applying business and marketplace principles to accelerate impact against some of the world's most important health challenges. Despite the existence of hundreds of technologies to improve global health, relatively few are available to save lives in the developing world, where morbidity and mortality burdens are greatest. An antiseptic that costs less than 10 cents could be used to reduce neonatal infection across South Asia. An injection that costs just 60 cents could halve a premature infant's risk of respiratory distress. A set of pills costing less than a dollar could reduce maternal death from postpartum hemorrhage. All of these technologies exist, yet none reaches more than a tiny fraction of the mothers and babies whose lives they could save. Those technologies that do eventually reach those hardest to reach populations often take far too long to get there. To address these and other challenges, the Center: Serves as a catalyst, driving innovation and partnerships; Works with the Bureau's technical offices to help prioritize existing and new innovations and interventions that align directly with the Agency's priorities in global health; Supports rapid introduction of and/or access to these priority interventions; and Seeks not only to develop best practices in innovation, introduction and uptake across sectors, but to push the boundaries of current thinking to improve the health and efficiency of the marketplace.
