FHI 360 is seeking a Chief of Party (COP) to lead a USAID/Zambia HIV Prevention project that we are pursuing. It will likely focus on community-level interventions to implement evidence-based HIV prevention services in Zambia, including priority and key populations, for five years starting in November 2020. The project is expected to ensure completed referrals and linkages to high impact biomedical prevention services as well as referrals for treatment for people living with HIV (PLHIV) at health facilities. The project will support the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) as it works towards the goal of an AIDS-Free generation, in Zambia, as well as globally. The position will be based in Lusaka, Zambia.
As the ultimate accountable person for the USAID/Zambia HIV Prevention project, the Chief of Party (COP) will serve as the principal liaison for the project to the donor (USAID/PEPFAR), implementing and strategic partners, government officials and FHI 360’s various offices. As the project director, s/he will lead the delivery of a complex program to increase the availability of, and to improve the quality, of HIV prevention activities as well as care and support services for the targeted beneficiaries, which include target populations and key populations (KPs).
