IntraHealth International is seeking candidates for the role of Deputy Chief of Party/Technical Director (DCOP/TD) for an anticipated five-year, USAID-funded Health Workforce Improvement Program (HWIP) in Ethiopia. This project will work with the Ministry of Health (MOH) at the national and sub-national levels (regional, zonal and woreda), higher educational institutions that provide healthcare education under the Ministry of Education (MOE), and targeted health worker professional associations, to create greater efficiency and self-reliance for delivery of quality health services through qualified health workers. The focus will be on institutional and individual capacity building to improve the quality of pre-service education for priority clinical cadres, improve the competency of clinical health care workers, and build the skills of health human resource managers.
The DCOP/TD will support the COP in the overall technical oversight of the project and is specifically responsible for project implementation that relates to strengthening leadership and management capabilities of Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) and Regional Health Bureau (RHB) human resource managers and the leadership and faculty at higher education institutes. This includes building their leadership, management and governance capacity for human resource management and healthcare education, strengthening the enabling environment for health workers to provide quality healthcare services through structural interventions that improve standards, generating timely data and evidence-based research results, and promoting continuous quality improvement in healthcare. S/he will take a leadership role in ensuring technical implementation is contextual, responsive and designed to deliver sustainable impact and ensure self-reliance and transition; that interventions are evidence-based and that the project meets its stated goals and reporting requirements.
This position is contingent upon award and approval by USAID.
