The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through Social Solutions International partnered with CAMRIS International, to recruit and hire qualified individuals for the following position:
United States Agency for International Development/Bureau for Global Health/Office of HIVs/AIDS/Division of Strategic Coordination and Communication (SCC)
Title: Public Affairs 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.
The Public Affairs Advisor is an integral part of OHA’s Communications Team, working with the OHA Communications Branch Chief, Senior Communications Advisor and the Program Analyst. The work of this position is essential to ensure consistent information coming from the OHA. The Advisor will be responsible for coordinating and implementing the Office's communications strategy. The Public Affairs Advisor will receive day to day guidance from the Communications Branch Chief as his/her USAID point of contact.
International and domestic travel approximately 20%.
