****************************** *SENIOR HEALTH ADVISOR WASHINGTON, DC
The Global Health Fellows Program II is seeking a Technical Advisor III: Senior Health Advisor (GHFP-II-P3-111) 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: The Office of Sustainable Development (SD) in the Bureau for Africa (AFR) provides: strategic guidance and intellectual leadership to AFR; conducts economic, social and political analyses critical to the development of AFR policies, strategies, budgets and activities; manages and/or coordinates three Presidential and two Agency Initiatives; and provides technical services to AFR's field missions. In carrying out these functions, SD serves as the Bureau's principal liaison with African and international partners, US Government (USG) sister agencies, the private sector, universities, and the Private Voluntary Organization (PVO)/Non- governmental Organization (NGO) community. AFR/SD's Health Division has an annual budget of approximately $15 million, which includes the management of activities that support African capacity development and improving the quality, availability and access to health services for Africa's most vulnerable populations. The Division works across all health sectors, including maternal and child health (MCH), reproductive health, health systems strengthening (HSS), and infectious diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS. The Health Division works in close collaboration with other USAID Pillar Bureaus, including the Bureau for Global Health (GH) and the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance, in activities such as coordinating strategic and technical support to USAID missions, program reviews and assessments, and staff development. It also works closely with African and donor partners such as the World Health Organization's Africa Regional Office, the World Bank and UNICEF. One of the presidential initiatives that AFR supports is the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) managed out of the Global Health Bureau. PMI was launched in June 2005 as a 5-year, $1.2 billion initiative to: a) rapidly scale up malaria prevention and treatment interventions and; b) reduce malaria related mortality by 50% in 15 high-burden countries in sub-Saharan Africa. With passage of the 2008 Lantos- Hyde Act, funding for PMI was extended and, as part of the GHI, the goal of PMI was adjusted to reduce malaria related mortality by 70% in the original 15 countries by the end of 2015. INTRODUCTION: The Senior Health Advisor (Senior Advisor) will be based in the Health Division of AFR/SD and will serve as a principal member of the core team supporting PMI in USAID and the PMI inter-agency working group.
