Chemonics seeks a deputy chief of party for the anticipated USAID Liberia Strategic Technical Assistance for Improved Health System Performance and Health Outcomes (STAIP) Activity. The purpose of this project is to support the strengthening of the Ministry of Health’s systems to improve patient outcomes at primary health care facilities by providing sustainable capacity building and incentivizing better health systems performance through performance-based financing. Select technical assistance will be provided at the central level to ensure alignment and implementation of national priorities and processes. Additionally, an important component of this activity will be to support meaningful reforms in health financing including delivery of selected priorities in alignment with the Ministry of Health’s Liberia Health Equity Fund to ensure quality and equitable access to health services without undue financial burden to patients. The deputy chief of party reports directly to the chief of party and will take a leadership role in driving technical implementation, ensuring that the activity meets stated goals and reporting requirements.
The deputy chief of party will lead all technical project activities and will ensure project implementation at the national and subnational levels. He or she will assume the responsibilities of the chief of party in their absence. He or she will coordinate among USAID and key stakeholders and other implementing partners and will interact with various Liberian government institutions and representatives, particularly at the national and local levels. He or she will take a technical leadership role in coordination with government and other partners and will work closely with key technical staff members on the project. He or she will be knowledgeable about current health systems strengthening and human resources for health models and service delivery approaches.
