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 for 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 will include technical expertise, human resource capacity, physical infrastructure, program implementation experience, and regional coordination and communication.
The TSP Senior Strategy Officer (SSO) will work under the supervision of the COP and will oversee the strategic development of the entire project. The SSO will ensure the practical implementation of the vision developed by the COP, Implementation Director, and Deputy Chief of Party. The SSO 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.
