10. POSITION DESCRIPTION:

A. BACKGROUND

Given the importance of HSS to the achievement of Uganda’s overall Health objective, this is one of the most critical areas for USAID/Uganda, requiring advanced technical skills, political and diplomatic tact, and innovative problem-solving in partnership with a wide variety of stakeholders. USAID/Uganda’s activities are of exceptionally broad scope and complexity. In FY 2010 (FY10) the overall U.S. Government (USG) assistance to Uganda totaled $526M, with USAID accounting for $341M. USAID/Uganda directed $131.5M to mitigate the effects of the 23-year conflict in northern Uganda, integrally linking USG interagency efforts in the areas of HIV/AIDS, infrastructure, defense, and diplomacy. The USAID development program contains 68 active assistance awards with a total multi-year portfolio value of $765M. The Mission’s complex and challenging assistance program consists of five action areas: economic growth and biodiversity; health and education; democracy and governance; regional peace and security; and humanitarian assistance. Mission programs implementing the Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the Presidents Malaria Initiative (PMI), the Global Health Initiative (GHI) and the Feed the Future Initiative (FtF) are among the largest in the world. The Mission manages one of the largest biodiversity earmarks in Africa and concluded its Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) threshold program in 2009. USAID programs promote the critical U.S. national security goal of a stable Uganda that takes a leadership role in regional peacekeeping, including its operations in Somalia and efforts to end civil conflict in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Mission operates a satellite office at Gulu in northern Uganda that coordinates regional relief and development efforts.
The position is located in Development Objective 3 (DO3), Developing Human Capacity office. DO3 is the largest DO Team in USAID/Uganda, with 41 staff and an annual budget of US$205M. DO3 is divided into three sub-teams – HIV/AIDS, Health, and Education.
The DO3 Team manages a wide array of programs, many of which are cross-cutting and integrated in design. Each element of the portfolio contributes to the GHI, seeking country-led health approaches that focus on integration of services, leveraging host country and other donor investments, strengthening health systems, a focus on women and girls, improved application of evaluation, innovation, and science and technology. USAID/Uganda seeks to implement the GHI principles through the public sector, the private not-for-profit sector, and the private for-profit sector. While the GHI is the overarching framework for all activities, several elements of the health portfolio are significant and complex on their own, including:
--Recognizing the global HIV/AIDS pandemic as one of the greatest health challenges of our time, the USG announced PEPFAR in 2003. Uganda received approximately US$298M in FY2010 to support a comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment programs, including support for OVC, systems strengthening, and overall improvements in service delivery.

--In 2005, PMI launched its five-year, US$1.2 billion initiative to rapidly scale-up malaria prevention and treatment interventions in high-burden countries of sub-Saharan Africa in order to reduce malaria-related mortality. This will be achieved by reaching 85% coverage of the most vulnerable groups (children under five years of age, pregnant women, and people living with HIV/AIDS), with proven preventive and therapeutic interventions. USAID/Uganda manages the $33M malaria portfolio in close collaboration with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

--Other initiatives include coordinating and contributing to USG epidemic preparedness activities for emerging pandemic threats, and supporting the control or elimination of several “neglected” tropical diseases still endemic in Uganda. Reproductive Health/Family Planning Programs include activities to promote improved reproductive health through couple communication, health education, prevention of gender-based violence, fistula repair, improved family planning services, and by providing a supply of contraceptives to both the public and the private sector.

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

Nutrition activities in DO3 include the micronutrient fortification and supplementation, technical assistance to the Ministry of Health (MOH) for improved nutrition policies and guidelines, prevention and treatment of under-nutrition in pregnant women and young children, therapeutic feeding for people living with HIV/AIDS and supplemental feeding for and Vulnerable Children (VC). All nutrition activities are part of the FTF initiative. Through FTF, the USG supports investments in agricultural productivity, reduced trade and transportation barriers, market-based agriculture, increased participation of the very-poor in rural growth, climate change adaptation, improved nutrition, and increased effectiveness of humanitarian assistance. FY10 investments for FTF are approximately $38 million.
