This project will cover governance, access, and demand activities for HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis (TB) services. The specific objectives of the program include targeted and efficient HIV case identification through optimized index partner and self-testing, linkage to care and treatment; patient enrollment in HIV/AIDS therapy with adequate adherence and retention; successful suppression of HIV viral loads; specialized services that attract key and vulnerable populations to achieve epidemic control; and increased capacity of the Nigerian government to expand, oversee, and finance HIV/AIDS and TB services.

Responsibilities include:

  • Lead, manage, and direct the project to achieve an HIV response that is both effective and cost-effective

  • Supervise senior management team; technical, clinical, and administrative staff; and subcontracting organizations
  • Ensure that all project assistance is technically sound and appropriate and incorporates Nigerian HIV/AIDS Indicator and Impact Survey estimates in the planning process to maximize programming impact
  • Create and implement a strategic, long-term programmatic vision in collaboration with others to scale up programs and services according to the latest epidemiological data
  • Lead project work planning, performance management, and strategic communications
  • Identify issues and risks related to project implementation in a timely manner and make appropriate program adjustments
  • Implement innovative strategies that demonstrably increase testing yields using index partner testing, reduce lost-to-follow-up through “recapture” campaigns using data to identify those who have fallen out of care, and other applicable approaches to address unmet needs and to close gaps in the treatment continuum

Qualifications:

  • Master’s degree or higher in public health or medicine
  • Minimum of 10 years of recent, relevant development experience designing, implementing, and managing USAID-funded or other donor-funded health programs of similar size, scope, and complexity
  • Experience as chief of party on a donor-funded project in Nigeria or West Africa preferred
  • Proven success in managing HIV/AIDS programs, and strong technical knowledge of HIV/AIDS, malaria, TB, maternal and child health, health systems strengthening and quality improvement/quality assurance
  • Proven ability to collaborate with local government stakeholders, international donors, and local partners at national and sub-national levels; track record of building local partners’ capacity
  • Proven experience using data to revise programs and create change
  • Experience in monitoring and evaluation, data management, and knowledge sharing
