PATH is a global organization that works to accelerate health equity by bringing together public institutions, businesses, social enterprises, and investors to solve the world’s most pressing health challenges. With expertise in science, health, economics, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales solutions—including vaccines, drugs, devices, diagnostics, and innovative approaches to strengthening health systems worldwide. In the last several years, remarkable progress has been made in fighting Malaria worldwide. In November 2006, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded a grant to support the expansion of the fight against malaria in Africa. Advancements in prevention and treatment have resulted in marked reductions in illness and death. Eliminating malaria is achievable using existing tools and a focused strategy, and the Malaria Control and Elimination Partnership in Africa (MACEPA III), a program at PATH, is working with its national partners to chart the way forward through the development of an evidence-based framework to guide countries through a comprehensive set of program interventions to elimination.
The Community Engagement Officer will be based in Lusaka and will be a technical resource in spearheading of Social Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) and community engagement (CE) efforts in support of Zambia’s malaria elimination agenda. The position will be responsible for supporting the National Malaria Elimination Program, Ministry of Health, and Provincial and District Health teams, with capacity building, materials development and providing oversight on communication and community related activities. The Officer will also provide content to the NMEP website and other platforms, and document lessons learned and best practices.
