The Technology and Innovation Advisor will be responsible for the development of an approach that integrates science, information and communication technology and innovation approaches into activities for the anticipated USAID-funded Improved Health and Nutrition project in Guatemala. The Technology and Innovation Advisor will propose and offer guidance on programming that increases the use of technology, including digital technologies, to improve development outcomes and to empower communities. The anticipated project aims to achieve significant and sustainable improvements in nutrition and health outcomes of target select municipalities of the Western Highlands which will result in reductions of stunted children, and maternal and child morbidity and mortality, and keeping low the prevalence of anemia and micronutrient deficiencies. This will occur as the result of improving service delivery and strengthening health systems, especially of human resources for health (HRH) in Guatemala. The project will operate over a 5-year period.
This position is contingent upon award from USAID. Guatemalan nationals are strongly encouraged to apply.
