PROGRAM MANAGER - PRIVATE SECTOR TEAM KAMPALA, UGANDA
The Clinton Health Access Initiative is seeking a Program Manager, Private Sector Team, in Kampala. Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems in the developing world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases. CHAI's solution-oriented approach focuses on improving market dynamics for medicines and diagnostics; lowering prices for treatment; accelerating access to life-saving technologies; and helping governments and private sector healthcare organizations to build the capacity to provide high-quality treatment. In 2007, CHAI signed an MOU with the government of Uganda to provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Health and strengthen health systems. CHAI Uganda works with the Ministry of Health around HIV, malaria, childhood illnesses, laboratory systems and drug logistics, leading to successes including a >400% increase in access to lifesaving pediatric HIV treatment and introduction of a new severe malaria drug which will save thousands of lives annually. For many common yet deadly diseases, the private retail sector provides the source of more than 50% of care in Uganda. However, within this sector the quality of care provision is often poor, and treatment prices can be prohibitively high. CHAI has therefore set about partnering with importers and suppliers of medicines to the private sector, as well as with the National Drug Authority responsible for the sector's regulation, to improve the private sector treatment landscape. Position description: The Private Sector Program Manager will be responsible for all aspects of CHAI's private sector portfolio in Uganda, aiming to improve access to high-quality treatment through the private sector health system. They will lead and supervise the activities and performance of a team of 3-4 individuals, and will play a major role in the organization's management structure. The Private Sector team aims to design and implement strategies to optimize the availability and affordability of appropriate medicines in the private sector, and the ability and knowledge of private healthcare workers to provide effective treatment on demand. This work touches on many aspects of the country's private sector pharmaceutical and healthcare provision industries, including: Policy and regulation: supporting the National Drug Authority to facilitate (1) registration of appropriate medicines, (2) quality assurance of products and players entering the market, and (3) capacity building and supervision structures for drug wholesale and retail outlets. Local drug manufacture: working with local manufacturers of high-priority medicines to reduce and streamline costs, resulting in improved end-user affordability. Import sourcing: working with importers to identify and secure affordable, high quality pharmaceuticals. Market analysis: collecting, analyzing and sharing market availability, price and volume data. Distribution and supply chain: working with pharmaceutical supply organizations to ensure that private sector facilities and retail outlets are well stocked with appropriate medicines. Sales and marketing: working with pharmaceutical companies to improve sales systems, leading to improved awareness, availability and affordability of important drugs. Healthcare professional capacity building: strengthening networks of private health providers, chemists and drug retailers through training programs and continuous reinforcement structures. This team is designed to serve as a specialist cross- cutting resource to other disease- or commodity-focused teams at CHAI Uganda, with a focus on malaria and child health. Job Requirements: Oversee all aspects of the private sector program in Uganda, including relationship management, strategy, budgeting and implementation. Manage and supervise of the activities of a team of 3-4 people. Coordinate allocation of team resources and prioritization of team activities with the Program Managers of other CHAI Uganda teams in order to facilitate cross-team design and implementation of private sector interventions. Establish short- and long-term program strategy to improve private sector treatment access: identify bottlenecks, develop innovative intervention strategies, and measure performance to achieve program objectives within ambitious timeline. Provide direct oversight and thought leadership to regular and in-depth market analysis for multiple product categories and brands, including market sizing segmentation, trends and identification of opportunities. Build and maintain strong working relationships with pharmaceutical suppliers in order to facilitate strategic alignment and partnership. Work with national pharmaceutical suppliers in order to improve their operations by increasing sales of high-priority product and/or decreasing costs; and ensure that gains in profitability secured re translated into patient-level health impact through reduced pricing or other means. Work with the National Drug Authority to develop and streamline internal capacity to conduct operations including drug registration, inspection and information dissemination. Identify and pursue new areas of work and partnerships that will have dramatic and leveraged impact on health outcomes. As required, contribute to reports for other CHAI programmatic teams and donors. Maintain a thorough understanding of the private sector pharmaceutical market in Uganda, and the overall health system throughout the country. Other responsibilities, as needed. REQUIRES: A minimum of 5 years of experience in a rigorous private or public position, with increasing levels of responsibility and leadership. Exceptional communication and relationship management skills with ability to clearly communicate complex ideas. Comfort and flexibility to work independently with a diverse set of counterparts.

******************************* PROGRAM APPRAISAL DOCUMENT DEVELOPER PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA
There is an opening for a Program Appraisal Document (PAD) Developer based in Pretoria, South Africa. 10+ years' experience required. Salary range: Up to $635 daily, depending on salary history; Open period: June 25 - July 2, 2014; Position information: Consulting Opportunity - USAID South Africa Program Appraisal Document Developer; Performance dates: o/a July 21, 2014 - August 15, 2014; Duty location: Pretoria, South Africa; Position number: 20058. Background / Scope of Work: Tuberculosis is an enormous public health problem both globally and in South Africa. Globally, more people die of TB each year than of any other curable infectious disease. South Africa has four concurrent disease burdens that heavily impact the health sector - 1) HIV/ AIDS and TB; 2) poverty related illnesses (perinatal, neonatal, childhood, and maternal diseases); 3) non-communicable diseases; and 4) violence and injury. HIV and its related opportunistic infections contribute significantly to maternal mortality (50%) and mortality under five years of age (35%) and TB is the leading cause of death in HIV-infected individuals. A recent national assessment of the HIV, TB and PMTCT programs (the "Joint Review"), led by WHO and included USG participation, identified both systemic and programmatic problems affecting sectoral performance. Beyond the fact of high TB and HIV prevalence rates, programmatic challenges included: Poor treatment outcomes for MDR and XDR and hence not reaching target of 60% of treatment success; Management of XDR-TB treatment failures; Limited service adaptation according to clinical need with consequent burden on services and patients; Lack of confidence of health workers in managing a child with TB; Lack of pediatric formulations of drugs for MDR/XDR; Inadequate infrastructure of clinics to ensure sound Infection Control measures and clinical practice; No standardized and systematic TB screening practices and documentation in facilities; Poorly documented TB contact investigation; No clear policy and practice for TB screening in health care workers. Although the public health sector has made significant strides forward in the post-apartheid era in terms of access, rationalization of health management, the underlying causes for the poor treatment outcomes continue because of weak health service delivery systems. Health systems in South Africa are characterized with technically sound guidelines and policies but fall short in the implementation. USAID plays a key role in improving the quality of services by bridging the evident gap between policy and implementation. The proposed Program Appraisal Document (PAD) will include a Sustainability/ Institutional Analysis which will document current issues in health systems and anticipated institutionalized improvements. USAID/South Africa is seeking an experienced public health professional to help design a new TB program following all the requirements of a Program Appraisal Document. Deliverables: The overall purpose of this task is to develop a Program Appraisal Document for TB activities in South Africa. Conduct desk top review and draft for sustainability and institutional analysis. Expand concept paper to PAD including the following sections: Problem Statement; Description of Technical Approach; Expected Results; Implementation Plan; M&E Plan; Gender Analysis; IEE; Facilitate internal consultation and review process; Draft the PAD according to the attached work plan. QUALIFICATIONS: The following qualifications are required: 10 years of experience in the design and implementation of public health projects. Advanced degree in public health; Substantial knowledge and experience in the areas of TB, HIV/AIDS. Demonstrated capability to produce quality design documents in a timely fashion. Required Application Materials: The following application materials must accompany applications: CV; Writing Sample; Three references. To apply: Write Position #20058 on the subject line. Please submit all required documents listed above to Consulting@usaid.gov. Please also include your salary history utilizing Form AID 1420-17 as part of your application.

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. The implementing partner will adapt material from existing on-line resources to develop a curriculum for in-person training workshops including components on gender and sexuality.
