The Global Health Fellows Program II is seeking a Technical Advisor II/III: LGBT Training Technical Advisor (GHFP-II-P3-121) in Washington, DC. Assignment: Two year fellowship. The Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP-II) is a five year cooperative agreement implemented and managed by the Public Health Institute in partnership with Global Health Corps, GlobeMed, Management Systems International and PYXERA Global. GHFP-II is supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID). GHFP-II's goal is to improve the effectiveness of USAID health programs by addressing the Agency's immediate and emerging human capacity needs. The program seeks to accomplish this goal first through the recruitment, placement and support of diverse health professionals at the junior, mid and senior levels. These program participants include fellows, interns, corporate volunteers and Foreign Service National professionals. The program then provides substantial performance management and career development support to participants, including annual working planning assistance, and ensures that professional development opportunities are available. Looking to the future, GHFP-II also seeks to establish a pool of highly-qualified global health professionals that will ensure the Agency's ongoing technical leadership and effectiveness. This objective is supported by an extensive outreach program that brings global health opportunities and specialized career advice to a diverse range of interested individuals, with a particular focus on those underrepresented in the field of global health. BACKGROUND: USAID remains at the forefront of the US Government's (USG) response to HIV and AIDS. The Agency is a key partner in the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), which supports comprehensive HIV and AIDS programs in more than 100 countries worldwide. A high priority for PEPFAR, in response to both legislative mandates and public health imperatives, is to ensure access to good quality, comprehensive HIV services for key populations, including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) individuals. LGBT individuals are often disproportionately affected by HIV and face stigma and discrimination which can be a barrier to their access to HIV services. Moreover, many countries where PEPFAR provides assistance criminalize same sex behavior and new or pending legislation in several additional countries has the potential for significant negative impacts on PEFPAR- funded HIV services for LGBT individuals, especially men who have sex with men (MSM). The USG is committed to the support of enabling environments for HIV service delivery, which is vital to the effectiveness of PEPFAR programs. Addressing norms and attitudes related to sexual orientation and gender identity are also an important component of gender integration, which is a requirement for all PEPFAR- funded HIV programs. The Office of the US Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) is providing dedicated funding through USAID to an implementing partner to train and sensitize PEPFAR country teams on USG policies on LGBT and sexual diversity and their implications for both the USG workplace and for PEPFAR programs.
