CAMRIS International is an international development and research firm with experience working in more than 80 countries. We combine our proven systems with today’s most effective, evidence-based best practices to improve the lives of people around the world. CAMRIS applies a customized, customer-centric, cost-effective business approach to offer greater value to our clients.


CAMRIS International is seeking Performance and Professional Development Coordinator candidates for a proposal to support the USAID’s Global Health Technical Professionals Program in Washington, DC.




As USAID’s Bureau for Global Health (GH) strives to remain the worldwide leader on global health issues and advances its goals, there is a need for experts with new and emerging technical skills to respond to continuous systemic organizational and personnel changes within the international health sector. This activity will help GH achieve sector priorities, implement element portfolios, and improve technical capacity of offices, teams, and working groups. It will support Agency strategic goals by providing personnel who will: promote leadership; accelerate innovation, science and technology; strengthen local capacity, promote gender equality; and promote working efficiently as stewards of public resources. In addition, GHTP will contribute to the strategic goals of the Agency’s Global Workforce Learning System (GWLS) of, “USAID’s workforce has the skills, information, and leadership talent to perform optimally in a modern development organization.”


Global Health Technical Professionals Program


The purpose of GHTP is to develop a cadre of USAID Global Health Development Professionals with specialized expertise in maternal and child health, reproductive health and family planning, HIV/AIDS, communicable and non-communicable diseases, vector-borne diseases, as well as health system strengthening within the Bureau for Global Health (GH) and Mission health offices.

  • identify, recruit, place and support up to 130 technical professionals (TPs) at a time;

This new mechanism will supplement Global Health (GH) direct-hire technical, professional and operational staff in Washington and in Mission health offices. The award is primarily aimed at technical professionals who have not previously worked for USAID and is meant to serve as an entry point for junior to mid staff who are new to USAID.


The Performance and Professional Development Coordinator will implement a multi-faceted performance and professional development program designed to support and monitor professional growth and development of more than 130 employees.

  • In collaboration with senior staff, assist in developing and implementing a comprehensive performance and professional development program which adheres to organizational policies and includes individual assessment, individualized professional development design, and evaluation.

  • Collaborate to design and make available elearning modules to advance individual skills.

  • Bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Management or related field.
  • Three years’ demonstrated success in staff development programming, preferably with public health professionals.
