USAID/Uganda is seeking for qualified individuals to fill the Project Management Specialist (Local Partner/Organizational Development) position.
As countries progress towards HIV/AIDS epidemic control, the point at which new HIV infections have decreased and fall below the total number of deaths among HIV-infected individuals, care and treatment for people living with HIV (PLHIV) is critically important, both to keep PLHIV alive and healthy, but also for treatment as prevention – reducing the amount of virus in a person’s blood to undetectable levels so that there is effectively no risk of transmission. The President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) has set an ambitious goal of transitioning 70% of programming to local partners by 2021. Local partners have been closely involved in the HIV response and throughout the PEPFAR program, and this effort will help advance countries along their journey to self-reliance.
The Project Management Specialist – Local Partner/Organizational Development (the “Specialist”) is an expert specialized in working with local organizations to strengthen their organizational capacity to deliver HIV/AIDS and other social services and fulfill their respective mission. The Specialist serves as an expert to help build the capacity of local partners in development and improvement organizational systems and policies that meet rigorous standards, including U.S. government requirements through hands on mentorship and coaching with an emphasis on community level interaction and feedback systems. The Specialist oversees the USAID Health Office’s efforts to transition awards to local partners and represents the agency’s efforts to the Ministry of Health (MOH), USG interagency, international, and bilateral organizations and other development partners in-country. In this capacity, the incumbent spends a significant amount of time engaging directly with local partners both locally and in the field.
