Deputy 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 Deputy 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 Deputy Chief of Party (DCOP) will support the Chief of Party (COP) in managing all aspects of the project. Additionally, the DCOP will provide civil society and healthcare system capacity building to project staff and partners and will be responsible for the following key activities:

  • Assist the COP in providing management oversight and technical advice for all program components, and ensure that the overall project is meeting proposed objectives and targets.
  • Supervise and monitor implementation of project activities to ensure quality work and compliance with work plan obligations, timelines, deliverables and results.
  • Provide civil society and healthcare capacity building and mentorship to technical specialists and project staff, as needed.
  • Serve as acting Chief of Party when necessary and in that role represent the project before USAID and project stakeholders.

Required Skills

  • Strong interpersonal skills to maintain good relations with partners, CSO representatives, government officials, USAID, and other stakeholders associated with the program.
  • Proven leadership and managerial skills and demonstrated ability to effectively manage staff.
  • Understanding of healthcare service delivery issues. 
  • Understanding of civil society and community development issues in Zambia.
  • Professional proficiency in English required.
Required Experience

A Master’s or higher degree in political science, public policy or other relevant field is required. Demonstrated experience implementing international donor-funded civil society programs. Experience in managing USAID-funded programs is preferred. Experience providing training and capacity building to stakeholders and partners is also required.
