PATH seeks a Deputy Project Director for an upcoming multi-year CDC-funded “Enhancing the Government of India’s Capacity through Technical Assistance to India’s National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) to Strengthen the Prevention to Treatment Cascade for People Living with HIV, Including Key Populations, under PEPFAR.” This project will rapidly demonstrate and assess new models to increase accessibility, availability, and demand of high quality, comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment services; while strengthening systems and the enabling environment for KPs, especially hard-to-reach KPs, their partners, spouses and children to have equitable access to HIV/AIDS and social services. To ensure scale up of these models by the Government of India (GoI), a robust learning agenda will be integrated throughout all aspects of the activity.
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. International development and global health represent one of the greatest opportunities for the impact of digital technologies on a global scale. New technologies, approaches and tools are emerging daily, unfortunately into a fragmented and immature digital health market landscape that currently limits their promise to transform country health systems and accelerate and amplify progress towards national and global health goals.
