We are a mission-driven organization that believes that superior science can improve the world. Social Solutions is dedicated to the creation of social and health solutions to improve the welfare of underserved populations worldwide.   The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through Social Solutions International to recruit and hire qualified individuals for the following position:                   Title:  Senior Innovative Financing and Market Advisor USAID/Bureau for Global Health/Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact (USAID/GH/CII)   Application Deadline:   Open Until Filled   BACKGROUND: In 2012, USAID established a center of excellence in the Bureau for Global Health to accelerate the development, introduction and scale up of priority global health interventions.  This new Center – the Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact– promotes and reinforces innovative, business-minded approaches to address the key bottlenecks in development, introduction and scale-up – applying business and marketplace principles to accelerate impact against some of the world’s most important health challenges.   Despite the existence of hundreds of technologies to improve global health, relatively few are available to save lives in the developing world, where morbidity and mortality burdens are greatest.  An antiseptic that costs less than 10 cents could be used to reduce neonatal infection across South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.  A low-cost rapid diagnostic test could ensure a feverish child receives the treatment she needs.  A new treatment commonly used to treat HIV in the US could be introduced in sub-Saharan Africa.  All of these technologies exist, yet none reaches more than a tiny fraction of the lives they could save.  Those technologies that do eventually reach the hardest to reach populations often take far too long to get there.   To address these and other challenges, the Center: - Serves as a catalyst, driving innovation and partnerships; - Works with the Bureau’s technical offices to help prioritize existing and new innovations and interventions that align directly with the Agency’s priorities in global health; - Supports rapid introduction of and/or access to these priority interventions; and - Seeks not only to develop best practices in innovation, introduction and uptake across sectors, but to push the boundaries of current thinking to improve the health and efficiency of the marketplace.

We are a mission-driven organization that believes that superior science can improve the world. Social Solutions is dedicated to the creation of social and health solutions to improve the welfare of underserved populations worldwide.   The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through Social Solutions International to recruit and hire qualified individuals for the following position:                   Title:  Technical Advisor for Child Health United States Agency for International Development, Bureau for Global Health, Office of Maternal and Child Health and Nutrition (MCHN), Division of Child Health and Immunization (CHI)   Application Deadline:   Open Until Filled   BACKGROUND: The world has witnessed an extraordinary 70 percent decline in child mortality over the last 50 years, and a reduction in child deaths from over 12 million in 1990 to 5.9 million in 2015. Over the same timeframe, maternal deaths declined by 43%, from an estimated 532,000 in 1990 to 302,000 in 2015. Despite this progress, significant work remains to increase coverage of high-impact interventions, strengthen the health systems that support these interventions, improve quality, and address equity gaps that are bottlenecks to ending preventable child and maternal deaths.   Building on the momentum of the June 2012 Child Survival Call to Action and the subsequent launch of A Promised Renewed (www.apromiserenewed.org), USAID’s Bureau for Global Health has mobilized to support countries to Preventing  Child and Maternal Deaths- PCMD (www.usaid.gov/ActingOnTheCall), focusing on 25 countries where over two-thirds of these deaths occur (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Rwanda, Senegal, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Yemen, and Zambia).   The USAID Advisor for Child Health (“Advisor”) will serve in the Bureau for Global Health’s (BGH) Maternal and Child Health and Nutrition Office (MCHN), Division of Child Health and Immunization (GH/MCHN/CHI), to support Agency efforts to prevent child deaths. The Advisor will work closely with the child health team to provide global technical leadership to revitalize USAID’s child health programs, in the context of the full “continuum of care” for newborn and child health and USAID’s broader health portfolio.  The Advisor will play a leading role in USAID’s development, implementation, and monitoring of global and country-level policies, strategies, research, programs and activities aimed at reducing infant and child mortality.  The Advisor will also foster relationships across the Office and Bureaus to strengthen collaboration and technical input into child health programs.   The MCHN Office serves as the Agency’s technical and policy lead on maternal and newborn health; child survival; immunization; and nutrition, with a focus on preventing child and maternal deaths.  Cross-cutting activities managed by the Office in support of this goal address private sector partnerships, social and behavior change communication, multilateral partnerships, gender, research, and monitoring and evaluation. The CHI Division provides technical and policy leadership, addressing the leading killers of children in the post-neonatal period.  This includes treatment of pneumonia, diarrhea, and other major contributors to death, vaccine-preventable diseases, as well as emerging issues.  The Division also manages the Agency’s significant investments in Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance as well as our contributions to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.

We are a mission-driven organization that believes that superior science can improve the world. Social Solutions is dedicated to the creation of social and health solutions to improve the welfare of underserved populations worldwide.   The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through Social Solutions International to recruit and hire qualified individuals for the following position:                   Title:  Health Workforce Analytics & Programming Advisor United States Agency for International Development/Bureau for Global Health/Office of HIV/AIDS/Systems and Program Sustainability Division (USAID/GH/OHA/SPS)   Application Deadline:   Open Until Filled   GENERAL DESCRIPTION   The Health Workforce Analytics & Programming Advisor will provide programmatic and technical support to headquarters and field staff in order to advance the use of health workforce analytics in HRH programming.  The Advisor will support key components of PEPFAR and USAID health workforce priorities, advancing use of data for effective HRH program development and demonstrating the impact of HRH investments.  Key technical emphases include health labor markets, workforce development, health workforce policy and planning, and HIV service delivery.   S/he will be assigned to the Bureau for Global Health, Office of HIV/AIDS, Systems and Program Sustainability Division (SPS), and receive day-to-day programmatic and technical guidance from the Health Workforce Branch Chief, who will serve as his/her onsite manager. The Systems and Program Sustainability Division (GH/OHA/SPS) provides technical leadership and strategic direction on issues related to systems strengthening, financing, health workforce, advancing sustainability, commodity social marketing and public-private partnerships for HIV/AIDS programs.  SPS consists of three branches –the Health Finance and Economics Branch, the Health Workforce Branch and the Capacity Building and Partnerships Branch.   BACKGROUND:  Office of HIV/AIDS   The United States Government (USG) has made the fight against HIV and AIDS a top priority, not only for humanitarian reasons, but because the HIV and AIDS crisis threatens the prosperity, stability and development of nations around the world. The US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is a USG global initiative to control the HIV and AIDS pandemic.  It is the largest commitment by any nation to combat a single disease.  Over the past decade, the US government has committed more than $52 billion to bilateral HIV and AIDS programs, the Global Fund to Fight HIV & AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and bilateral tuberculosis programs.  To achieve an AIDS-free generation, PEPFAR works closely with a variety of stakeholders including partner countries, multilateral organizations, civil society, people living with and affected by HIV, the faith community, and the public and private sectors. USAID has been, and continues to be, at the forefront of the USG response in the fight against the HIV and AIDS pandemic since inception of its international HIV & AIDS program in 1986. With a focus on transparency, accountability, and impact, PEPFAR is actively working with partners to control the HIV and AIDS pandemic to help achieve an AIDS-free generation.  PEPFAR is committed to supporting activities that are grounded in science and critical to saving lives and preventing new HIV infections.  PEPFAR’s core activities include a focus on health systems, including health finance; human resources for health (HRH); commodity procurement and supply chain systems; and laboratory systems. PEPFAR recognizes that donor resources alone cannot meet the needs of the 35 million people that will be living with HIV in 2020.  As developing economies grow and begin to more fully realize their economic potential, unlocking domestic financing for HIV becomes a critical element of achieving long-term sustainability of the HIV and AIDS response.  Countries are increasingly taking the lead in managing, implementing, and even financing their national HIV responses.  As a result, PEPFAR has committed funding to support countries to strengthen their ongoing efforts to increase the use of their own resources to help deliver an AIDS-free generation.  Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) is a key strategy to secure the sustainability of past and future achievements.  PEPFAR provides an opportunity to strengthen health systems and health policy, as the USG's and its partners' efforts to combat HIV and AIDS transition from an initial emergency approach to a more long-term sustainable approach in order to ensure maintenance of country advances made in HIV. USAID's HSS program provides support to ensure that developing country health systems are effective, efficient, and equitable. A strong health workforce composed of both facility- and community-based workers is an essential health systems building block for achieving an AIDS-free generation.  New evidence suggests how smart investments in the health workforce can also be a powerful force-multiplier of socio-economic dividends. However, in most countries with a high HIV burden, health workforce shortages and misalignment are commonplace and create significant barriers to achieving HIV targets and sustained epidemic control. Limited HRH data availability across countries often impedes countries’ ability to assess needs and programmatic impact of health workforce interventions.  Advancing health workforce data analysis and utilization is vital to answering critical questions and making smart investments to enable the supply, quality and retention of the health workforce needed to achieve HIV goals.

Social Solutions International, Inc. is a Small Disadvantaged Business.

We are a mission-driven organization that believes that superior science can improve the world. Social Solutions is dedicated to the creation of social and health solutions to improve the welfare of underserved populations worldwide.   The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through Social Solutions International to recruit and hire qualified individuals for the following position:                Title:  Senior Health Advisor United States Agency for International Development/ Technical Support (TS) Health/ Asia Bureau   Application Deadline:   Open Until Filled     General Description: The Asia Bureau fields a small team that is responsible for backstopping 17 countries in Asia, providing technical support, particularly in urban health, health financing and governance and health systems to Missions. In addition, the health team in Asia sits on Country Teams managed by the Office of Country Support in the Global Health Bureau, the Agency’s Urban Working Group and other ad hoc groups as dictated by events, such as the Nepal Task Force to respond to the 2015 earthquake. This position is at a senior level and is expected to represent the Bureau in the inter-agency and global development circles, and provide thought leadership, particularly as it relates to the quantification of populations in urban slums and frames the Bureau’s work in transition.   Background: The Asia Bureau is one of the smaller regional bureaus within USAID but it has a vibrant health portfolio, which is managed by the health team within the Office of Technical Support (Asia/TS).  The Office leads the Bureau’s strategic thinking in technical areas, reviews the performance of Bureau offices and programs, and advises Asia offices on the appropriate allocation of resources.  The Office serves as the Bureau’s principal point of contact and coordination on all substantive technical aspects of programs in sectors of assigned specialization.   - It helps Missions develop new country strategic plans, - Conducts periodic reviews of Mission program performance, and - Provides technical oversight of Mission programs. Asia/TS makes recommendations for allocating Bureau resources among missions and prioritizes sector programs throughout the region.  Within the Office of Technical Support, the Health Team is responsible for providing technical input on all health related programs and matters in the region.     The Health Team provides technical leadership and support to 17 USAID field teams across the region in implementing evidence-based interventions proven to save lives and reduce disease burden. While the scope of work covers traditional health sectors such as family planning, maternal and child health, infectious disease, nutrition, and health systems, we are also invested in navigating and managing complex adaptive systems, which better reflect the dynamism of Asia. The Health Team engages in cutting-edge programs that address gaps and unfinished agendas in health across Asia. Some areas of interest include: - Unacceptably high rates of neonatal and maternal mortality, along with persistent malnutrition and high levels of stunting, inconsistent with economic growth; - Implementation research studies on Universal Health Coverage in Indonesia and Burma. These efforts will provide policy makers and managers rapid cycles of information to strengthen countries’ paths to achieving Universal Health Coverage and provide lessons learned for other countries in Asia pursuing sustainable health financing schemes; - Leveraging the use of private sector funds and stewardship of care provided in the private sector to support the continuation of health sector activities in Kazakhstan and channel the robust private sector in India to help end preventable child and maternal deaths; - Ensuring that programs in middle-income countries are gradually phased out of receiving USAID funding using non-disruptive, sustainable practices which do not upend the gains made to date; - Using Political Economy Analysis as a tool to deepen contextual understanding of health problems and to illuminate different possible solutions; - Rapid urbanization and its impact on health in Asia through application of USAID’s 2012 Urban Strategy in the health sector and a proposed 2017 framework that will be generated by Asia TS; - The Global Health Security Agenda and the emergence of novel infections and drug-resistant strains of tuberculosis and malaria; and - Attending to equity in monitoring and planning health programs, going below the surface of national and sub-national indicators.   In addition to supporting Global Health priorities, the Asia Bureau provides technical assistance to countries that have not been designated as priority countries for the Global Health Bureau programming purposes, as is the case of work currently planned in Laos and Timor Leste with Asia Bureau funds.  One of the policies of the Health Team is to look at strategic future programming and to design research and interventions that will enable missions to keep abreast of and manage technical changes in the field.
