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.
Funded by the United States President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), the Program for the Advancement of Malaria Outcomes (PAMO) is a 5-year project that aims to control and prevent malaria morbidity and mortality, and thereby minimize the social effects and economic losses. It also contributes to the reduction of under-five all-cause mortality rate, as a result of reduced malaria mortality. This project which is working in 4 target provinces, namely Eastern, Muchinga, Northern and Luapula, will strengthen the Ministry of Health’s capacity to implement the National Malaria Elimination Strategic Plan (NMESP) at provincial, district, and community levels. The project which is now in its third year of implementation is building strong effective partnerships with communities, civil society, health facilities, provincial and district health offices (PHOs and DHOs), the private sector, and cooperating partners to scale-up and maintain internationally accepted strategies to fight malaria. PATH is the lead partner of the consortium that is implementing this project.
PATH seeks to recruit two Surveillance Officers who will be based in Katete. The Surveillance Officers will form part of a team which will operate in Chadiza, Katete and Sinda. The Surveillance Officers will form part of the “Malaria Pre-Elimination Team” and will report directly to the Malaria Pre-Elimination Coordinator. The Surveillance Officers will work in close collaboration with Ministry of Health officials at provincial, district, facility and community level to implement an enhanced malaria surveillance platform in support of national and regionally focused malaria elimination efforts. They will also work with other program officers to provide general support to the provincial and district health office (PHO and DHO) staff, as requested. These positions will be on fixed-term contracts up to July 2019.
