Chief of Party (COP) needed to provide vision, leadership and direction to ensure the strategic, programmatic, technical, and financial integrity for an upcoming USAID urban health project in Afghanistan. The $100-300 million project aims to improve health outcomes in 5 urban centers in Afghanistan with a focus on reproductive health (RH), family planning (FP), maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH), immunization, nutrition, and Tuberculosis. The project will operate over a 5-year period.
The COP will have the overall responsibility for leadership and management and reporting of project activities including making key decisions and solving problems in short timeframes while ensuring operational and project quality and integrity. COP will serve as the project’s main point of contact with USAID on routine and strategic matters and also ensure effective organizational management and communication with the host country government at all levels, and international partners and agencies.
