DAR ES SALAAM, TANZANIA

CARE is seeking a Senior Technical Advisor in Dar es Salaam. Expected Travel: up to 40%; Language Requirement: English; Employee Duration: Active Full-Time; Type of Post: Accompanied - Family; Funding: Approved. CARE is a leading humanitarian and development organization dedicated to fighting poverty and social injustice with a special emphasis on human rights, gender equality and women and girls. CARE works in a variety of contexts from protracted crises to stable development settings and recognizes that a good comprehensive assessment of the underlying drivers of food and nutrition insecurity point to poverty, gender inequity, non-inclusive governance, poor adaptation to climate change and the inability to manage other economic and political shocks and stressors.

To address these drivers, CARE pursues a two-pronged approach that focuses on a sequence of 'nutrition-specific' and 'nutrition-sensitive' interventions. Both pathways address humanitarian responses to acute shocks as well as developmental interventions that strengthen capacities and institutions to achieve food and nutritional security. Both pathways progress from externally derived support during emergencies, to household and community-led solutions, to systemic policy and institutional support for food and nutrition security solutions.

The cross-cutting themes are: Promoting women's empowerment & gender equality; Promoting good governance and right to food; Promoting resilience. The Pathways program is an anchor initiative under the FNS portfolio which seeks to empower poor women smallholder farmers and to increase their productivity in more equitable agricultural systems at scale across six countries.

HIV & AIDS SENIOR HEALTH ECONOMIST
CRYSTAL CITY, VA

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 an HIV & AIDS Senior Health Economist, United States Agency for International Development, Bureau for Global Health, Office of HIV/AIDS, Strategic Planning, Evaluation & Reporting Division. BACKGROUND: The United States Government (USG) has made the fight against HIV/AIDS a top priority, not only for humanitarian reasons, but because the HIV/AIDS crisis threatens the prosperity, stability and development of nations around the world. The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is a U.S. government global initiative to control the HIV/AIDS pandemic. It is the largest commitment by any nation to combat a single disease. Over the past decade, the U.S. government has committed more than $52 billion to bilateral HIV/AIDS programs, the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and bilateral tuberculosis programs. To achieve an AIDS-free generation, PEPFAR works closely with a variety of stakeholders including partner countries, multilateral organizations, civil society, people living with and affected by HIV, the faith community, and the public and private sectors. USAID has been, and continues to be, at the forefront of the USG response in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic since inception of its international HIV/AIDS program in 1986. PEPFAR is the largest commitment ever by any nation for an international health initiative dedicated to a single disease. With a focus on transparency, accountability, and impact, PEPFAR is actively working with partners to control the HIV/AIDS pandemic to help achieve an AIDS- free generation. PEPFAR is committed to supporting activities that are grounded in science and critical to saving lives and preventing new HIV infections. PEPFAR's core activities include a focus on health systems, including health finance; human resources for health; commodity procurement and supply chains; and laboratory systems. PEPFAR recognizes that donor resources alone cannot meet the needs of the 36 million people that will be living with HIV in 2020. As developing economies grow and begin to more fully realize their economic potential, unlocking domestic financing for HIV becomes a critical element for achieving long-term sustainability of the HIV/AIDS response. Countries are increasingly taking the lead in managing, implementing, and even financing their national HIV responses. As a result, PEPFAR has committed funding to support countries to strengthen their ongoing efforts to increase the use of their own resources to help deliver an AIDS-free generation. Health systems strengthening (HSS) is a key strategy to secure the sustainability of its past and future achievements. PEPFAR provides an opportunity to strengthen health systems and health policy, as the USG's and its partners' efforts to combat HIV/AIDS transition from an initial emergency approach to a more long-term sustainable approach. USAID's HSS program provides support to ensure that developing country health systems are effective, efficient, and equitable. PEPFAR has recently launched an HIV & AIDS financing initiative to support countries to leverage their own domestic resources to help deliver an AIDS- Free generation. USAID will serve as the lead agency for coordinating and implementing this initiative, and we expect that efforts could yield a significant benefit and a substantial return on the initial investment for a dramatic impact on the resources these countries will be able to put towards increasing prevention, care, and treatment coverage for achieving sustainable control of the epidemic. This centrally funded initiative was developed out of collaboration between the Office of HIV/AIDS and the Office of Health Systems in the Global Health Bureau and the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and the Environment. USAID will partner closely with selected Missions and relevant stakeholders to support new and ongoing health financing activities that aim to increase domestic resources for health. Solutions tailored to individual country contexts will involve health financing approaches encompassing advocacy and analysis, technical efficiency, tax policy and administration, and innovative health financing, including use of the private sector. The initiative will support PEPFAR key intervention areas to ensure impact and efficiency gains, build sustainability and partnerships, and advance the human rights agenda. USAID will coordinate and collaborate across USG Agencies and with multilateral stakeholders in the design and implementation of this initiative. The overall objective of USAID's Bureau for Global Health (GH), Office of HIV/AIDS's (OHA) HSS program is to provide USAID leadership in building sustainability of the HIV/AIDS response through investment in health systems. OHA views health systems strengthening as a continuous process of implementing changes in policies, management and systems within the health sector. OHA works collaboratively within USAID, with other US Government agencies, and with the international community to implement its HSS vision through coordinating activities, evaluating programs, developing guidance and supporting countries to ensure the application of up-to-date health systems development interventions in both the public and private sectors.
