Job Title: Financial Analyst, U.S. Public Health Accompaniment Unit (USPHAU)
Reports to: Finance Manager, Vaccine Equity (RECOVER)
Location: Remote (US)
Position Type: Full-time, temporary through December 2021
Leveraging Partners In Health’s (PIH) experience and lessons learned from our COVID contact tracing collaboration with the state of Massachusetts, and our 30 years of global work in emergency epidemic response and health systems strengthening, PIH has spent the last year working with U.S. states, cities and community partners in building more equitable and effective public health responses to COVID-19 in the US.
The U.S. Public Health Accompaniment Unit (USPHAU) supports public sector and community partners on the frontlines of the public health response to COVID-19, to address this acute-on-chronic public health crisis, by providing technical assistance and knowledge sharing platforms to accelerate implementation of effective, equitable COVID-19 responses. Our approach to providing technical assistance to different public sector and community partners in the United States includes providing expertise and advice on design and implementation, incorporating an equity lens into execution, and creating a community of partners across the US to share best practices and challenges in order to fortify efforts amidst the national response to COVID-19.
USPHAU has been awarded a short-term but substantial grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). PIH will engage multiple public sector and community partners in subaward and other contractual arrangements that will lay the foundation for our work.
Working closely with the PIH finance team as well as the PIH Development department, the Financial Analyst will be involved in all financial aspects of USPHAU’s restricted funding activities. This person will work closely with finance and grant management personnel, principally to record, track and report on all restricted spending.
