USAID's objectives are to strengthen youth programming, participation and partnership by mainstreaming and integrating youth issues and promoting young people's participation across Agency initiatives. USAID continues to be at the forefront of the U.S. Government (USG) response in the fight against HIV/AIDS. USAID is a key partner in the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and works closely with other USG agencies on this 10-year, multi-billion dollar initiative in more than 120 countries.

Working in tandem with Global Health Bureau staff, the Advisor will also address the full continuum of response for young people, including care and treatment for HIV- positive youth, broader social and economic interventions to reduce young women's vulnerability to HIV, and appropriate linkages with pregnancy prevention and other health and development programs for youth.

Serve as a technical advisor for OHA's youth-specific technical assistance mechanisms; work with OHA activity managers for other centrally-managed mechanisms to ensure that HIV/AIDS activities addressing youth are technically sound. Promote positive youth development program innovations, along with strong evaluation; e.g., test behavioral economics and structural interventions, use of private sector channels and new information and communication technology to promote youth engagement. Advise on appropriate linkages between HIV/AIDS services for youth, and between HIV/AIDS services and other health and development interventions.
