Jhpiego seeks a Chief of Party (COP) to provide vision, leadership and direction to ensure the strategic, programmatic, technical, and financial integrity for an upcoming USAID health systems strengthening project. The project will support the Government of Ghana to accelerate achievement of universal health coverage and bridge the inequity gap in health services, using the national Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) approach to primary health care service delivery nationally as a mechanism for achieving this goal. Working closely with Ghana Health Service (GHS), the project will strengthen vital health system building blocks (management and leadership; health information systems; health workforce; supply chain and infrastructure; and health financing) to ensure access to, and use of, high-quality health services by all Ghanaians. The project will operate over a five-year period.
The COP will have the overall responsibility for leadership and management and reporting of project activities. S/he will be responsible for making key decisions and solving problems in short timeframes while ensuring operational and project quality and integrity. S/he will serve as the project’s main point of contact with USAID on routine and strategic matters. S/he will also ensure effective organizational management and communication with the host country government at all levels, and international partners and agencies.
This position is contingent upon award from USAID. Ghanaian nationals are strongly encouraged to apply.
