Funded by the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Catholic Relief Services (CRS) implements the Key Interventions to Develop Systems and Services for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (KIDSS) project. The project addresses the challenges of sustainable care and support to Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) by strengthening the capacities of the Government of the Republic of Cameroon (GRC), civil society, communities and households to provide quality care and support to HIV-infected and affected children in Cameroon. KIDSS partners with 24 local implementing organizations, the Government of Cameroon and other stakeholders to reach OVC and their families in 32 health districts across nine regions of Cameroon. The program consists of prevention and case finding activities for OVC as well as ensuring community support for linkage to care and retention among children and adolescents living with HIV.
The MEAL Director will provide leadership in ensuring high quality monitoring, evaluation, accountability, and learning within the KIDSS project to assist the achievement of the KIDSS project objectives and strengthen partners' capacity to assure robust MEAL across the project. The MEAL Director reports to the KIDSS Chief of Party, while coordinating with project staff, sub-recipients and PEPFAR implementing partners; and is accountable for all the monitoring and evaluation, accountability, learning and documentation of technical project related activities, results and program quality. The KIDSS MEAL Director's project management skills and knowledge of PEPFAR OVC programming will ensure that the KIDSS delivers high-quality programming and continuously works towards improving the impact of this project as well as timely, high-quality, evidence-based reporting to the donor.
