IntraHealth is seeking candidates for the role of Chief of Party (COP) for an anticipated five-year, USAID-funded Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) activity in Namibia. The program seeks to expand access to high quality lifelong biomedical intervention that will avert new HIV infections among young boys and men. Through key activities, the project will support the Government of the Republic of Namibia (GRN) Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS) and the private health sector in the delivery of high quality safe medical male circumcisions.
The Chief of Party (COP) provides strategic direction and leadership for all aspects of technical and managerial program implementation. S/he will work closely with the MOHSS, USAID and other stakeholders to achieve project goals and outcomes. The Chief of Party will ensure that the project is supporting the GRN to scale up adolescent and adult VMMC, including training health care workers, procurement of commodities and supplies, health communication and demand creation, M&E, quality improvement, and supporting the integration of early infant male circumcision (EIMC) in reproductive and child health services.
This position is contingent upon award and approval by USAID.
