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.
By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health. Working in Vietnam since the early 1980s, PATH established a permanent office in Hanoi in 1997 and an office in Ho Chi Minh City in 2014.
PATH has implemented the Healthy Markets project since 2014. This project is a USAID-funded initiative that is supporting Vietnam to achieve the UNAIDS 95-95-95 goals by 2030 and to transition from an HIV response that is largely subsidized by international support to one that is sustainable in the long-term. This involves facilitating a viable commercial market that can promote access to essential goods and services for those most at risk of HIV. Healthy Markets works closely with community-based organizations, social enterprises, manufacturers, distributors, private health care providers, and national and local governments to improve private sector engagement and local investment in the market for condoms and other HIV-related goods and services; increase demand for HIV-related goods and services among key populations; and generate increased private sector supply of high-quality commodities and services that are accessible and affordable.
PATH is seeking a Private Sector Partnerships and Financing Advisor based in Hanoi, Vietnam, to foster private sector engagement and investment in HIV-related commodities toward development of a dynamic and sustainable market for HIV products and services.
The Private Sector Partnership and Financing Advisor’s responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Identify, assess, and recommend potential private sector partners and partnership opportunities.
- Provide technical leadership for the design, formalization, and management of innovative private sector partnerships.

- Provide technical assistance to develop and maintain a database of private partnership activities.
- Monitor the development and implementation of activities related to private sector partnerships and financing.
- Advise on an appropriate financial structure and plan for local governments, community-based organizations, and social enterprises to effectively deliver HIV goods and services; and support partners to develop new models for covering the costs of HIV goods and services, including social impact investing and blended financing models.
- Develop and implement mentorship programs to offer subject-specific trainings for community-based organizations and social enterprises.
- Provide technical support to community-based organizations and social enterprises to enhance their business capacities toward achieving sustainability and self-reliance.
- Provide technical assistance to community-based organizations and social enterprises to develop and implement their plans for increasing and mobilizing capital and investment from private investors.
- Identify opportunities for establishing and strengthening contractual relationships with private health care providers; and design and implement programs to facilitate capacity building and negotiation.
- Work collaboratively with other implementing partners and programs to leverage existing platforms and resources.
- Perform other tasks assigned by the project as may become necessary.
