A. BACKGROUND

This position is located in USAID/Uganda’s Strategic Objective 8 (SO8), Investing in People. SO8 is the largest Strategic Objective Team within USAID/Uganda, with 36 staff and an annual budget of US$210M. The SO8 is divided into three subteams – HIV/AIDS, Health, and Education and has a cross-cutting Strategic Information Unit. This position is a member of the Strategic Information Unit and will focus on providing strategic and coordinated support to the strengthening of management information systems in health, education and HIV/AIDS and will provide technical support to the health and education subteams in the areas of performance monitoring and reporting.

The Health Subteam manages programs in malaria, family planning/reproductive health, tuberculosis, maternal and child health, health systems strengthening, avian influenza, and neglected tropical diseases. As a multisectoral initiative, many elements of the HIV/AIDS response fall within the general health sector and are supported by the Health Subteam. The annual Health Subteam budget is approximately US$40M.

In 2005, the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) was launched and Uganda is one of the original PMI focus countries. PMI is a five-year initiative to rapidly scale-up malaria prevention and treatment interventions in high-burden countries of sub-Saharan Africa. The goal is to reduce malaria-related mortality by 50% by 2010. This will be achieved by reaching 85% coverage of the most vulnerable groups (children less than five years of age, pregnant women, and people living with HIV/AIDS), with proven preventive and therapeutic interventions.

The Family Planning/Reproductive Health Program includes activities to: improve family planning service delivery; promote improved reproductive health through couples communication, health education, prevention of gender-based violence, and fistula repair; and improve the supply and distribution of contraceptives to both the public and the private sector.

Maternal and Child Health activities support improved maternal and childhood nutrition, safer pregnancy and delivery, more complete vaccination coverage, improved well- and sick-child capacity at health facilities, distribution of Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) and zinc, safe water, and an improved logistics and supply chain for essential drugs.

Other health initiatives include coordinating and contributing to USG epidemic preparedness activities for avian influenza, and supporting the control or elimination of several “neglected” tropical diseases still endemic in Uganda.

The Education team is currently supporting basic education in Uganda through support to the national Ministry of Education for the roll-out of the new thematic curriculum; improving the quality of education through teacher training and materials; strengthening community involvement; and, HIV/AIDS education through a national Presidential initiative.

Recognizing the global HIV/AIDS pandemic as one of the greatest health challenges of our time, President George W. Bush announced the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in 2003. Uganda received approximately US $283million in FY 2010 to support comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment programs; systems strengthening and overall improvements in service delivery.
