Save the Children is submitting a funding proposal to the anticipated USAID-funded Strengthening Integrated Health Services Activity (SIHSA) in Sierra Leone. The Activity will improve the quality of family planning, maternal newborn child and adolescent health, and malaria services; promote adoption of crucial health behaviors; and strengthen the stewardship and governance of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, both at central and district levels.
The Chief of Party (COP) is a senior leadership position and will provide overall strategic direction in the design, management, implementation, and overall quality assurance of the project. The COP will be the primary point of contact with USAID and be responsible for the sustainability of project interventions. The COP will collaborate with the Ministry of Health and other partners to provide high-level technical and managerial support for effective capacity building at the local level. The COP will also oversee a team of experts and support staff, prepare reports and annual operating plans, align project initiatives with in-country priorities, and ensure the program is compliant with USAID and Save the Children’s regulations.
This position is contingent upon donor approval and funding.
