Multi-Sectoral Health Security Advisor


Seeking Multi-Sectoral Health Security Advisor—HRH2030 One Health Platform in Tanzania

Overview
Chemonics International seeks a Multi-Sectoral Health Security Advisor for the ongoing U.S. Agency for Development (USAID) funded Human Resources for Health 2030 (HRH2030) Program’s One Health Platform activity in Tanzania. HRH2030 is a five-year global cooperative agreement that builds on USAID’s investments to improve the health workforce. HRH2030 contributes to increasing the sustained availability, accessibility, acceptability, and quality of the health workforce for strengthened health systems for achievement of Sustainable Development Goals. HRH2030 supports low- and middle-income countries worldwide to develop the health workforce needed to prevent maternal and child deaths, reach the goals of Family Planning 2020, control the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and protect communities from infectious diseases.

HRH2030 will build upon the existing work by USAID and other U.S. government agencies working with Ministries of Health, Agriculture, Environment and other key stakeholders to build country capacity to implement the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA)—a multilateral and multi-sectoral initiative of over 40 countries to enhance capacities to prevent, detect, and rapidly respond to infectious disease threats and achieve measurable outcomes. HRH2030 is looking to strengthen the organizational and workforce capacity from multiple sectors for improved prevention, detection, response to disease threats.

The Multi-Sectoral Health Security Advisor will work across ministries to help create and improve resilient health systems through health systems strengthening (HSS) approaches that align with the country’s health and development objectives. This includes helping to accelerate country progress towards implementation of the WHO’s International Health Regulations (IHR), which aim to helping countries prevent and respond to acute public health risks that have the potential to cross borders and threaten people worldwide.

The Multi-Sectoral Health Security Advisor will be embedded within the government in support of the country’s National One Health Platform (NOHP) and related health security preparedness and response planning. NOHPs are mechanisms for multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral collaboration at the convergence of human, animal, and environmental/wildlife health and play a key role in national preparedness and response planning. NOHPs provide the basis for ensuring that core capacities are in place for preparedness, and for promptly detecting, reporting, and responding to public health threats. At a minimum, a NOHP is composed of public health, animal health, and environment/wildlife ministry representatives.

In addition to bringing in local level knowledge of the country’s government and environment, the Multi-Sectoral Health Security Advisor will be responsible for creating synergies between the country’s health security climate with that of the country’s current workforce to ensure that the country has a fully competent and coordinated multi-sectoral health workforce of an array of actors, in order to respond to potential health shocks—as they relate to the GHSA. The Multi-Sectoral Health Security Advisors located in different countries will be connected amongst themselves and with their stakeholders through an online platform that will be used to share experiences, lesson learnt, and best practices.


Responsibilities:
  • Liaise with relevant government officials and partners, and the USAID Mission/Office, on a continuous basis to ensure awareness, coordination, buy-in, and cooperation for the successful planning and implementation of HSS activities.
  • Provide on-site technical, organizational development, and operational support to the existing coordination agencies/mechanisms (NOHPs) to strengthen multi-sectoral and multidisciplinary collaboration on disease outbreaks in coordination with appropriate international health agencies (e.g. WHO, FAO, OIE, US CDC, USDOD/DTRA-CBEP) and key stakeholders.
  • Assist with the identification of organizational capacity development and technical assistance needs to improve the management and leadership capacity and the efficiency of NOHP.
  • Identify opportunities to promote the convening of appropriate technical, capacity building, and coordinating meetings to promote multidisciplinary discussions and assessments of human and animal health data related to emerging zoonotic diseases (EZDs)/EIDs and the results of disease outbreak investigation.

  • Contribute to the identification of vertical and horizontal linkages amongst for public health, animal health, wildlife and environmental services to support EZD/EID field investigations,
  • Communicate regularly with appropriate government counterparts to coordinate and manage country activities. Provide updates, identify gaps and highlight success stories that can be shared to inform stakeholders nationally and regionally.
  • Identify and share best practices and tools to build capacity within the NOHP and increase platform effectiveness as well as support data-based decision making in a timely manner.
  • Prepare progress reports to USAID to be included into regular GHSA progress reporting
  • Provide managerial, administrative, and logistical support and identify needs to facilitate travel and implementation of coordination activities of the NOHP.
  • Internal Resource Mobilization to ensure sustainability of the platform.

Qualifications
