VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT # : Ouaga-2021-032-FSN/11
USAID Project Management Specialist (Malaria Data Management) - FSN-11

BASIC FUNCTIONS OF THE POSITION :

The goal of the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) is to reduce malaria-related mortality by fifty percent (50%) across a number of high-burden countries in sub-Saharan Africa, and elsewhere, through rapid scale-up of proven and highly effective malaria prevention and treatment measures. Success requires participating countries, and their partners, to deploy the right resources at the right place and at the right time, through more accurate insights from existing data, and accelerating the data-to-action cycle.

PMI has launched a new country quarterly reporting process to ensure operational decision-making at the country level is based on timely and granular program-relevant data, through the use of the “PMI MDIVE Platform,” which includes analytic tools to facilitate the use of relevant datasets, including visualizations of epidemiological, supply chain, entomological, demographic, programmatic, and financial data. As such, PMI has required all countries receiving PMI funding to add a Malaria Data Specialist to the Health staff to support surveillance, monitoring and evaluation, the strengthening of malaria-related data systems, and the building institutional capacity within Ministries of Health and National Malaria Control Programs to improve data quality and use.

The USAID Project Management Specialist (Malaria Data Management) (the “Specialist”) leads the effort to strengthen malaria-related data systems, and efforts to build institutional capacity within Ministries of Health and National Malaria Control Programs. The Specialist provides leadership and guidance to data-related malaria control programs/projects/activities in coordination with USAID, USG, implementing partners (IPs), appropriate host-country ministries and the private sector.

The Specialist provides technical advice on data collection, analysis, and use, reflecting best practices designed to improve data quality and use, and ultimately advance to malaria prevention, control, and elimination. The Specialist administers and monitors malaria data systems and is responsible for data collection and analysis and provides guidance and leadership in the strategic use of data for informed decision making. In addition, the Specialist serves as a Contracting/Agreement Officer’s Representative (C/AOR) or Activity Manager (AM) for malaria data systems related programs.
