John Snow, Inc. (JSI) seeks highly qualified and accomplished public health leaders and providers for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/PEPFAR-funded Supporting an AIDS-Free Era (SAFE) Project in Zambia. The five-year project led by JSI in partnership with Abt Associates, mothers2mothers, and the Catholic Medical Mission Board, works to reduce HIV mortality, morbidity and transmission, while improving nutrition outcomes and family planning integration in three provinces: Central, Copperbelt, and North-Western. USAID/PEPFAR SAFE works with the GRZ, private sector and civil society institutions at the national, provincial, and district level to increase access to ART for HIV positive adults and children, reduce the incidence of new infections, improve Nutritional Assessment, Counseling and Services (NACS), family planning and cervical cancer screening services, and increase the capacity of local health institutions to better serve affected populations.
USAID SAFE works with the Ministry of Health to integrate Early Childhood Development (ECD) services into the HIV program at selected supported facilities through structures that recognize the significant opportunities related to ECD in the areas of social protection, health, nutrition and education. SAFE plans to invest in high impact, sustainable interventions that are closely linked to current priorities in HIV, maternal, child health, nutrition and education. Priority outcomes for ECD programming along the child survival continuum include; decreased loss to follow-up for HIV care and treatment, improved outcomes for children affected by or living with HIV, reduced rates of stunting, increased immunization rates and improved preparedness for early grade reading.
