United States Agency for International Development/Bureau for Global Health/Office of HIVs/AIDS/Division of Strategic Coordination and Communication (SCC)
Title: HIV/AIDS Regional Advisor
Application Deadline: Open until Filled
The U.S. Government (USG) has made the fight against HIV/AIDS a top priority, not only for humanitarian reasons, but because the HIV/AIDS crisis threatens the prosperity, stability and development of nations around the world. USAID has been, and continues to be, at the forefront of the USG response in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic, funding over $25 billion in activities since the inception of its international HIV/AIDS program in 1986, with programs in nearly 100 countries worldwide. The President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), launched in 2004, is the largest commitment ever by any nation for an international health initiative dedicated to a single disease.
The Global Health Bureau’s Office of HIV/AIDS (GH/OHA) is the center of HIV/AIDS technical leadership for USAID and has primary responsibility for the Agency’s HIV/AIDS program. The Strategic Coordination and Communication (SCC) Division within OHA, to which the HIV/AIDS Regional Advisor will be assigned, provides programmatic expertise to help the Agency and its Missions develop programs that respond to USG, USAID, and Congressional policy in addition to providing strong coordination with multilateral donors (the Global Fund in particular) and internal and external communication to stakeholders.
Within SCC, the Regional Advisors Branch (GH/OHA/SCC/RA) serves as OHA's primary point of contact for USAID Missions seeking headquarters support for their full range of HIV and AIDS programming. Through ongoing advocacy and coordination of technical and management assistance, the Branch works across OHA, USG agencies—in collaboration with field Missions—to ensure effective outcome-driven PEPFAR programming. The Branch coordinates communications of PEPFAR policies and processes to the field and coordinates feedback on key aspects of program challenges from the field to headquarters.
The HIV/AIDS Regional Advisor’s primary role is to work alongside senior Regional Advisors and support USAID field missions and regional offices in developing sound strategies and operational plans consistent with PEPFAR policy; implementing efficient and effective programs that achieve desired outcomes; and monitoring and reporting on progress made in achieving program goals and objectives. The HIV/AIDS Regional Advisor serves as a key point of contact for Office of HIV/AIDS (OHA) for up to three countries.
The HIV/AIDS Regional Advisor’s onsite manager is the SCC Division Chief; the Advisor performs the following duties. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.
