Our Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) team is a leader in adapting innovative health products and services for women and girls—across health areas, levels of the health system, and geographies. Our work prioritizes approaches that enable women and girls to become users of evidence-based, supported, and convenient self-care options—including contraceptive self-injection. PATH’s Sexual and Reproductive Health team includes colleagues in Washington, DC; Seattle, WA; Kampala, Uganda; Dakar, Senegal; Nairobi, Kenya; Lusaka, Zambia; and Antananarivo, Madagascar, and is embedded within PATH’s Primary Health Care (PHC) program.
PATH is currently recruiting for a Program Associate for the DMPA-SC Access Collaborative project within the global Sexual and Reproductive Health team. The Access Collaborative is a global initiative funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation and led by PATH in collaboration with John Snow, Inc. (JSI). Since 2017, the Access Collaborative has been working with ministries of health and partners across sectors in more than 20 countries to expand women’s contraceptive options and access through introduction and scale-up of the self-injectable product DMPA-SC. With many countries advancing self-injection as an evidence-based self-care option, the Program Associate will provide support across multiple workstreams to fulfill project and team goals. At the same time, this position will provide occasional support across PATH’s SRH portfolio of projects, in alignment with overall Primary Health Care program strategy. The Program Associate will report to the Access Collaborative Project Director.
