Chief of Party, Increasing Citizen Demand for Accountable and Transparent Service Delivery in the Health Sector, Zambia



PATH is an international organization that drives transformative innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations—that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. 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.

Advocacy to accelerate health impact: Strong political champions and evidence-based policies are critical to ensure that health is within reach for everyone. It’s not enough to create solutions to global health problems. The global health community must secure the support of decision-makers, policymakers, and others to commit resources and enact policies that bring these solutions to scale—to strengthen health systems, improve health, and save lives.

Path is seeking a Chief of Party for an upcoming multi-year USAID-funded project. Increasing Citizen Demand for Accountable and Transparent Service Delivery in the Health Sector project will seek to mobilize communities and increase their engagement in monitoring the delivery of health services. Activities will include increasing citizens’ action on utilization and quality of community services, and improving upon or developing community-based monitoring tools. The project will seek to strengthen local governance social structures such as the neighborhood health committees, health advisory committees, and/or safe-motherhood action groups. Health service providers under the Ministry of Community Development, Mother, and Child Health will also be involved to improve and strengthen their engagement with community members.

The Chief of Party will be responsible for technical leadership and administrative oversight of the project, and serve as the principal institutional liaison to USAID and will be responsible for the following key activities:

  • Provide technical and administrative leadership for the entire project, ensuring that all objectives are achieved.
  • Oversee internal management of the project including the budget and performance monitoring and evaluation.
  • Supervise all project activities, staff, and partners, and have overall responsibility for the successful performance of the project.
  • Maintain effective activity tracking and reporting systems and ensure high-quality reporting and deliverables.
  • Provide technical assistance to project counterparts and grantees in areas of expertise and oversee grants management.
  • Serve as principal liaison with USAID, counterparts and other donors.

Required Skills

  • Demonstrated leadership and diplomacy skills.
  • Strong communication skills, both interpersonal and written.
  • Familiarity with USAID regulations and experience in systems and office set-up, budgeting, financial management, and grants program management.
  • Fluency in English is required.
Required Experience

Graduate degree (Master’s or higher) in international development, public health political science, or other relevant fields. Five years of experience managing USAID funded projects at a Chief of Party/Project Director level. Demonstrated experience working on programs promoting community-based monitoring or social accountability in health, and/or in strengthening local health governance structures. Experience working in Zambia or the region.
