The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is at the forefront of the U.S. Government’s (USG) response in the fight against HIV/AIDS. USAID is a key partner in the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and works closely with other USG agencies on this multi-billion dollar initiative in developing countries around the world.
The Office of HIV/AIDS (OHA) has overarching responsibility for the full range of USAID's HIV/AIDS programs and serves as the Agency's lead office for implementing PEPFAR. The Office also serves as the Agency’s overall focal point for both the Global Fund and UNAIDS. OHA provides strategic direction, technical leadership, and support to field programs in HIV/AIDS and health systems strengthening. It provides input on decisions concerning the strategic allocation of financial and human resources in the sector and assists in designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating programs. GH/OHA is composed of eight Divisions and 25 Branches.
The Multilateral Branch focuses on facilitating and supporting USAID's partnerships with multilateral entities, with a primary focus on the Global Fund and UNAIDS. The Branch coordinates program and policy activities between USAID, USG agencies, the Global Fund, and UNAIDS, and supports USAID missions on country-specific Global Fund and UNAIDS-related issues. The Branch also provides technical and policy leadership at headquarters on multilateral issues. The Branch is directly responsible for planning, managing and monitoring HIV and cross-disease technical assistance mechanisms to support Global Fund programming. The Branch works closely with a number of USAID offices and divisions, including the President’s Malaria Initiative, the Tuberculosis Team, and the Office of Health Systems, as well as with multiple USG agencies such as the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Senior Multilateral Advisor will serve as a key member of the Multilateral Branch, with responsibility to provide strategic guidance and technical support in the management of projects and grants managed by the Branch; technical coordination with USG agencies, multilateral organizations, bilateral donors, and implementing partners on PEPFAR and Global Fund Technical Assistance (GF TA)-funded activities; and planning, analyzing, and evaluating technical assistance programming, with a focus on HIV/AIDS and health systems strengthening. The Senior Multilateral Advisor will keep abreast of current multilateral and bilateral developments in HIV/AIDS and related health issues and will establish and maintain close working relationships with other USAID teams and operating units, the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) and other USG agencies, multilateral organizations, and with representatives of public, private and not-for-profit organizations working in the health sector.
