CARE Cameroon seeks a Chief of Party to lead the upcoming, USAID-funded, Continuum of Prevention, Care, and Treatment (CoPCT) for HIV/AIDS with Most-at-risk Populations (CHAMP-Cameroon). CHAMP will expand the continuum of prevention, care and treatment for key populations by building on the activities currently implemented by HAPP in the five regions which include the two largest cities (Yaounde and Douala): Littoral-Douala; Centre- Yaounde; North West-Bamenda; Est- Bertoua and Garoua; and South-Kribi. The CHAMP activities will be expanded within the largest urban areas of all ten provinces where high concentrations of target populations are found – with the Chief of Party based in Yaounde.
The project, built on current USAID support in Cameroon, aims to increase access and use of quality HIV prevention care and support services for key populations. These efforts will expand service coverage in the country from five to ten regions, and generate data for evidence-based programming. The project will use a continuum of care approach to service provision, and will link clients with community-and facility-based interventions. It will also strengthen the capacity of existing health systems, including the policy environment and networks, for a well-coordinated response. It is anticipated that at least 140,000 beneficiaries including 16,000 MSM, 66,000 CSW and 58,000 other clients will be reached with quality HIV prevention, care and support services over the five years.
The successful candidate will be responsible for providing overall vision, leadership and guidance of the project internally with project staff and externally with USAID, host governments, other donors and stakeholders. The COP shall have principal responsibility for overall project management and technical operations to ensure that project tasks are completed and that project objectives are successfully met. S/he will lead the team and serve as the primary point of contact with USAID/WA AOR, PEPFAR Cameroon, and with the USAID Country Representative in Cameroon regarding implementation of activities and management matters relating to the agreement. S/he will have overall responsibility for assuring that all assistance provided under the agreement, whether by international or local experts/personnel, is technically sound and appropriate for the needs to be addressed; and for adequately managing and supervising the work of all experts/personnel. S/he will be the primary point of contact for information on the progress and current status of all activities under the agreement and will establish appropriate mechanisms to ensure that activity progress and specific implementation concerns are regularly and promptly reported. S/he will manage the preparation and presentation of proposed implementation plans and all reports.
Specific duties and responsibilities include the following:
