Based in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Regional Head will oversee the design, scoping, implementation and evaluation of AMP Health’s in-country work (including oversight of AMP Health Management Partners), represent AMP Health to ministries of health and partners in-region, and identify potential new country partnerships.
Successful candidates will have a proven track record of effectively working with senior public sector leaders, managing successful teams, being accomplished problem solvers and communicators who can bring vision and credibility to this work. They will ideally have a combination of private sector and global health experience, demonstrate a commitment to global health impact and excitement for helping to build an emerging high-profile program. We expect candidates with global health experience to have worked at the country-director level.
In partnership with Gavi, AMP Health seeks a highly capable leader to join the MoH in Malawi as a Management Partner. The MP will serve as a problem-solving partner to national and regional leaders on high priority initiatives related to strengthening the country’s EPI Programme. Based within the MoH, the MP will work closely with the EPI Manager and his team and will report to a senior official in the MoH as well as to the AMP Health team. Specific MP work will be determined in collaboration with MoHs but could include support for planning and implementation of the $47M HSIS grant, refining approaches to EPI governance and technical assistance, and planning and rollout of new vaccines.
