The purpose of the Tanzania Vector Control Activity (TVCA) is to identify and implement proven, evidence-based vector control approaches in Tanzania. The TVCA focuses on insecticide treated bed-nets (ITNs) that includes determining the quantity of ITNs needed annually to maintain high population access and implementing delivery of ITNs. The TVC Contractor provides the Government of Tanzania and malaria partners with state-of-the-art reviews and advice concerning new developments in vector control, and as appropriate, develops plans for implementation of modified or new vector control approaches in Tanzania.
The Director -MEL will work as part of the TVCA senior technical leadership team led by the Project Director. This specialist is responsible for providing overall technical and program leadership in the design, implementation and oversight of TVCA’s ME&L portfolio. This will be focused on the design, implementation, and monitoring of the TVCA program components which include determining the insecticide treated net (ITN) access among targeted populations; delivering ITNs to targeted populations; reviving the commercial market for ITNs; providing guidance on effectiveness of vector control interventions used in Tanzania; and providing guidance on new evidence-based vector control approaches.
The Director-MEL will oversee implementation of an integrated M&E system to track the inputs, processes, outputs and outcomes of each of TVCA’s. In this regard, the Advisor will also oversee quality control and timely production of required project data, tools, materials and products relevant to M&E, including any operational research and baseline/end line surveys.
