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.
PATH is home to the Malaria Control and Evaluation Partnership in Africa (MACEPA) which supports National Malaria Control programs in Africa to apply a package of malaria interventions to a high proportion of the population and to document the health and economic benefits that result. A key component of this work is to educate policymakers about the tools and approaches that can be adapted and shared between and across countries to achieve elimination of the disease, and to secure the resources necessary to do so.
Specific responsibilities include:
- Participate in the design, implementation and analysis of program evaluation and research projects, including, for example, annual malaria prevalence surveys, serology studies and impact evaluations.
- Developing analytics tools and dashboards to support decision making in national malaria control programs
- Work actively in the support and coordination of field projects with international travel at approximately 25% FTE.
- Developing robust R pipelines to clean, organize, process and consolidate a wide range datasets
- Create visualizations and maps and conduct statistical analyses to support program objectives
- Prepare reports, presentations and publications to disseminate evidence to wider team, national malaria programs, collaborators and global policy makers
- Present results of research to in-country stakeholders, the scientific community, and donors.
- Working closely with MACEPA teams and national programs in country to develop analyses to support evidence-based decision making
- Conduct costing exercises to estimate the cost per person and cost drivers of different malaria interventions.
- A wide range of GIS tasks, including cleaning and combined sources of geolocation data, working with population rosters, performing analyses to quantify population denominators robustly, producing maps of malaria transmission, mapping results from modelling studies
- Participate in studies that investigate new methods to evaluate interventions and their program effectiveness. Examples might include: measuring malaria prevalence through different test methods; piloting and evaluation of innovative new tools (e.g. vector control or diagnostics), and changing case investigation procedures.
- Working with other members of the MACEPA, PATH and collaborating partner teams to determine future directions for research and outstanding questions.
- Develop training materials and deliver tutorials to support training of in-country staff in data analysis skills
