Baylor College of Medicine Children’s Foundation Malawi (Baylor-Malawi) is a not-for-profit organization partnering with the Government of Malawi in the health sector. The mission is to improve the health and lives of HIV-infected children and families through high quality, high impact, ethical, state-of-the-art, comprehensive care and treatment, training of health professionals, and clinical research. Baylor-Malawi has an international reputation for innovative, evidence-based HIV service delivery programming.
Baylor-Malawi, with support from USAID, implements the Technical Support to PEPFAR Programs in the Southern Africa Region—or TSP—Program to reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS in ten countries: Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. TSP works closely with USAID country missions and government partners to respond to requests for technical assistance and to tailor approaches on a case-by-case basis. The high-quality technical assistance and program implementation provided by TSP help strengthen capacity to propel the region towards achievement of the UNAIDS 90-90-90 benchmarks, which call for 90% of HIV-infected individuals to know their status, 90% of patients who know their status to be started and adherent on ART, and 90% of patients on ART to be virally suppressed by 2020. Through TSP, Baylor-Malawi and its partners will provide technical assistance to regional HIV/AIDS programs and build the capacity of country teams to eventually take full ownership of the programs. Assistance includes technical expertise, human resource capacity, program implementation experience, and regional coordination and communication.
The TSP Deputy Chief of Party (DCOP) under the supervision of the COP, will oversee day-to-day management of the entire project. She/he will make operational and management decisions, manage and assign USAID mission requests, and ensure the quality and timely completion of reporting and deliverables. The DCOP will possess strong management skills for overseeing and working with a variety of technical staff and extended partners, and will coordinate work in various countries under multiple and competing deadlines.
