Chief of Party
Pathfinder International seeks a Chief of Party for a USAID/Haiti health systems strengthening and service delivery project, Services de Santé de Qualité pour Haïti (SSQH). The overall purpose of the SSQH project is to improve the health status of the Haitian population, specifically in the areas of HIV and AIDS, family planning and reproductive health, and maternal and child mortality and nutrition. This will be achieved by: (1) increasing utilization of the Ministère de la Santé Publique et de la Population's (MSPP) integrated package of services at the primary care and community levels; (2) improving the functionality of the USG-supported health referral networks; (3) facilitating sustainable delivery of quality health services through the institutionalization of key management practices at both the facility and community levels; and (4) strengthening departmental health authorities' capacity to manage and monitor service delivery.
The Chief of Party (COP) provides strategic leadership and managerial oversight of the administrative, programmatic, technical, and operational aspects of the Project. S/he oversees the day-to-day work of the project and is responsible for the effective use and deployment of staff and financial resources to achieve project targets. The COP is accountable for all aspects of the Project’s effective management, including financial and budgetary oversight, timely implementation of activities, and stakeholder relationship management. The COP prominently positions Pathfinder as a leader in global health technical areas and as a successful partner in the development and cost effective implementation of donor-funded programs. S/he is responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with USAID and other donors, Government agencies, and other programs operating in Haiti.
