Jhpiego seeks a Project Director to provide vision, leadership and direction to ensure the strategic, programmatic, technical, and financial integrity for an innovative Unitaid project that seeks to catalyze adoption of new and recently recommended drugs for postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) in high-burden countries. The four-year project will address key barriers to policy adoption and dissemination, procurement and supply, and service delivery, with a focus on demand generation for policy-makers, providers and patients, while demonstrating close engagement with community and civil society stakeholders.

To maximize impact, the project will leverage and synergize with other initiatives that are implementing new PPH prevention and treatment approaches.
