Events and Conference Manager will be a member of the team for Secretariat for AlignMNH, a five-year project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in collaboration with USAID. AlignMNH aims to align global maternal and newborn health advocacy, metrics, financing and action in support of accelerated improvements in MNH and well-being in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).
Events and Conference Manager will promote and enhance the exchange of maternal and newborn health technical knowledge through managing strategic, logistical and media elements before, during and after conferences and events, both live and virtual. The position is responsible for logistical and operational management of a bi-annual international conference & exhibition as well as a planned series of virtual engagement convenings. The conference, exhibition and virtual engagement series will provide a much-needed opportunity to convene the global MNH community and key partners on a predictable, regular basis to publicly recognize country progress toward agreed metrics, create innovative ways to track progress, share evidence, new ideas and effective implementation strategies, catalyze investment, and fuel global and national action. It is envisioned that countries will work and learn together at the conference and support a new generation of leaders, unified behind a vision of accelerating progress toward MNH targets.
In addition to the management of the conference, exhibition and virtual engagement series, the Conference Manager will also be responsible for providing program and ancillary support for management of AlignMNH’s Steering Committee meetings, presence at multiple domestic and international public health conferences, and planning special events as deemed necessary by donor and Secretariat.
