CARE Zambia seeks a Chief of Party (COP) to support an upcoming, USAID-funded, project titled “Increasing Citizen Demand for Accountable and Transparent Service Delivery in the Health Sector through Enhanced Community-Based Monitoring”.
The project will seek to mobilize communities and increase their engagement in monitoring the delivery of health services. Proposed activities will include enhancing citizens’ action predicated on basic facts about utilization and quality of services collected from the communities themselves. It will include improving upon, or developing, community-based monitoring tools such as report cards, social contracts, and action plans. This component will seek to strengthen existing local governance social structures, such as neighborhood health committees, health advisory committees, and/or safe-motherhood action groups. Health service providers under the Ministry of Community Development, Mother, and Child Health will also be involved to improve and strengthen their engagement with community members.
The successful candidate will provide the project with overall vision, leadership and guidance – internally with project staff and externally with USAID, host governments, other donors and stakeholders. Moreover, the COP will assume principal responsibility for overall project management and technical operations to ensure project tasks are completed and objectives met. S/he will lead the team, serving as the primary point of contact with USAID/Washington and with the Mission. Finally, the COP will manage the preparation and presentation of all proposed implementation plans and reports.
