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.
