The Chief of Party (COP) will provide vision, leadership and direction to ensure the strategic, programmatic, technical, and financial integrity for an upcoming USAID integrated health project in Malawi. This project aims to accelerate reductions in maternal, newborn, and child mortality and morbidity by increasing the capacity of the Government of Malawi institutions and local organizations to introduce, deliver, scale up, and sustain the use of evidence-based, quality maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) services, voluntary family planning (FP), and reproductive health (RH) care. The project will operate over a five-year period.
The COP will have the overall responsibility for leadership and management of and reporting on the recipient’s activities, making key decisions and solving problems in short timeframes while ensuring operational and program quality and integrity and serving as the recipient’s first point of interface with USAID on routine and strategic matters. This includes ensuring effective organizational management and communication interacting with other projects, host country governments at all levels, and international partners and agencies.
This position is contingent upon award from USAID. Malawian nationals strongly encouraged to apply.
