jobs description

USAID/Uganda is seeking for qualified individuals to fill the Project Management Specialist (HIV/AIDS Care & Treatment) position.

As Uganda progresses towards HIV/AIDS epidemic control, the point at which new HIV infections have decreased and fall below the total number of deaths among HIV-infected individuals, care and treatment for people living with HIV (PLHIV) is critically important, both to keep PLHIV alive and healthy, but also for treatment as prevention – reducing the amount of virus in a person’s blood to undetectable levels so that there is effectively no risk of transmission. Currently care and treatment is the largest component of the Mission’s HIV/AIDS program, with an annual budget of over $100 million. Keeping over one million individuals on treatment, ensuring their continued adherence to treatment and viral suppression, and clinically monitoring their disease progression will be an uphill task. In addition, HIV-infected but not yet diagnosed individuals need to be... identified and enrolled on treatment. These needs call for a high degree of innovation and expertise.

The HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment Deputy Unit Lead is a senior professional and expert in strategic planning, program and activity design, budgeting, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of HIV/AIDS care and treatment activities. The HIV/AIDS and TB Team is structurally organized under two technical thematic units, namely prevention and care and treatment, under the overall oversight of the Unit Leader assisted by a Deputy Unit Leader responsible for prevention. The Deputy Unit Lead, Care and Treatment position is necessary to provide a similar level of oversight of the care and treatment. The Specialist serves as the in-house subject matter expert on HIV/AIDS care and treatment and the Mission’s senior representative in policy, strategic and technical engagements with GOU, USG interagency, international and bilateral organizations and donor agencies to address technical issues and coordinate efforts in implementation of HIV/AIDS activities. The position is located in the USAID/ Uganda Office of Health and HIV/AIDS. The Specialist reports to the HIV/AIDS and TB Unit Leader.
