United States Agency for International Development/ Bureau for Global Health/ Infectious Diseases/ Neglected Tropical Diseases
Title: Communications Advisor
Application Deadline: Open until Filled
The Communication Advisor will lead day-to-day communications efforts for USAID’s Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) Division. The Advisor will support key components of the Division’s communications, such as drafting key messages, talking points, factsheets, briefing documents, and newsletters in support of GH/IDs approved objectives. The Communications Advisor will also monitor congressional activities, advance the NTD Division’s policy outreach and coordination among the donor community.
The Advisor will be assigned the Bureau for Global Health, Office of Infectious Diseases, Neglected Tropical Diseases Division, and receive guidance from the NTD Division Chief, who will serve as the USAID point of contact. USAID’s NTD Division manages an annual $100 million portfolio that provides support to 31 countries across 8 programs and coordinates with five pharmaceutical companies to leverage $4.5 billion in drug donations per year. This portfolio is centrally managed within the Bureau for Global Health, Office of Infectious Diseases.
NTDs cause significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. More than one billion people – one-seventh of the world’s population – suffer from one or more NTDs. Often the source of deep stigma, NTDs cause disability, severe disfigurement, and blindness. These diseases affect the world’s most vulnerable populations with devastating, lifelong disabilities that contribute to ensnaring individuals, families, and even entire communities in poverty. For detailed information on USAID’s NTD program and strategy, please see: http://www.neglecteddiseases.gov/.
