GHSA - USG COORDINATION AND IMPLEMENTATION SPECIALIST FOR WEST AFRICA
WASHINGTON, DC

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through CAMRIS International partnered with IAP World Services Inc. (IAPWS), to recruit and hire qualified individuals for GHSA - USG Coordination and implementation Specialist for West Africa, United States Agency for International Development. ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: In today's globalized world, the speed with which newly emergent diseases can surface and spread, as illustrated by the H1N1 2009 pandemic virus, raises serious public health, economic, security and development concerns. It also underscores the need for the global community to act pre- emptively and systematically to improve individual countries' abilities to earlier identify and quickly mitigate health threats arising within their borders. Most importantly, the threat posed by new infectious diseases arising from animal reservoirs (zoonotic diseases) argues for a rethinking of standard strategies for the prevention, detection and response of diseases and their progenitors to reflect a more inclusive and strategic partnership across the public health, animal health and environmental sectors if we are to be able to address emergent disease threats before they pose an overwhelming global threat. The majority of all new, emerging and re-emerging diseases affecting humans at the beginning of the twenty-first century have originated from animals. Many of these infectious diseases are of serious concern to human and animal health, and they are emerging in places where humans, wildlife, and domestic animals are increasingly in contact. The emergence of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronavirus in 2003 and the H1N1-2009 pandemic influenza virus illustrate the consequences of not having in place capacities to detect the early stages of spillover, amplification, and spread of a new disease threat - that is, while it is still circulating (and evolving) principally in animals and before the potential threat has acquired the ability to efficiently transmit among humans. In both instances the public responses came after the viruses had fully emerged as pandemic threats. On the other hand, the emergence of the H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza virus in Hong Kong in 1997 and its re-emergence in Southeast Asia in 2003, the early detection of H7N9 virus in China, and the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus in Saudi Arabia have provided important opportunities to monitor a threat after it has spilled over, but before large-scale amplification and spread - and enable the world a longer window to prepare for the possibility of a new health threat, including the production of diagnostics and vaccines and the stockpiling of antivirals. The early recognition of a potential threat also allows for a global effort to take preemptive steps to bring the spread of the virus under greater control - and by extension possibly reduce the opportunities for it to emerge as a pandemic threat. Importantly, work, in part supported under USAID's Global Health Security and Development (GHSD) portfolio, has advanced our understanding of disease spillover, amplification, and spread by highlighting the strong correlation between "high risk" geographic areas, animal hosts, microbial agents, and people. This collective body of work, in turn, has led to the recognition that risk-based intervention strategies enable targeting disease detection to those places, populations, times or situations where risk of viral spillover, amplification, and spread is greatest and the likelihood of detecting these events is highest. As of April 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports over 25,500 suspected and confirmed cases of Ebola in West Africa and more than 10,00 Ebola- related deaths. The Ebola crisis is derailing lives and livelihoods in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. Fears of infection have severely disrupted economic and social activity, delivery of government services, and international development efforts in West Africa with secondary effects in other parts of Africa. If the epidemic is not contained during 2015, these costs will multiply dramatically. The United States is actively engaged and in December 2014, Congress approved the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2015 (SFOAA), authorizing $5.4 billion to fight the Ebola crisis, including nearly $2.5 billion allocated to USAID. Along with EVD response and preparedness, the White House and Congress have prioritized support for the international GHSA to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease outbreaks, and the SFOAA includes $312 million to USAID for rapid and consistent implementation and whole of government coordination of GHSA over the next few years. As a core contributor to USG implementation of the GHSA action packages, the EPT-2 program will directly improve the capacity of more than 20 focus countries in Africa, Asia, and the Near East to meet GHSA objectives. The effective response to the challenges caused by the emerging multifaceted health threats undoubtedly requires a multi-disciplinary approach. The EVD epidemic, MERS, and a recent reintroduction of AI in poultry in Nigeria are jarring examples of the need for greater capability in all countries and across multiple sectors to rapidly detect and respond to new or re-emerging public health threats. In November 2014 USAID/GHSD launched the second five-year phase of the EPT portfolio (EPT-2). As with its predecessors AI and EPT-1, EPT-2 is focused on mitigating the impact of novel "high-consequence pathogens" arising from animals through a suite of One Health investments with the goal of enabling: early detection of new disease threats; effective control of new threats through enhanced "national-level" preparedness; and, a reduction in the risk of disease emergence by minimizing those practices and behaviors that trigger the "spillover, amplification, and spread" of new viruses.

GHSA - USG COORDINATION AND IMPLEMENTATION SPECIALIST FOR EAST/SOUTHEAST ASIA
WASHINGTON, DC

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through CAMRIS International partnered with IAPWorld Services Inc. (IAPWS), to recruit and hire qualified individuals for a GHSA - USG Coordination and implementation Specialist for East/ Southeast Asia. In today's globalized world, the speed with which newly emergent diseases can surface and spread, as illustrated by the H1N1 2009 pandemic virus, raises serious public health, economic, security and development concerns. It also underscores the need for the global community to act pre- emptively and systematically to improve individual countries' abilities to earlier identify and quickly mitigate health threats arising within their borders. Most importantly, the threat posed by new infectious diseases arising from animal reservoirs (zoonotic diseases) argues for a rethinking of standard strategies for the prevention, detection and response of diseases and their progenitors to reflect a more inclusive and strategic partnership across the public health, animal health and environmental sectors if we are to be able to address emergent disease threats before they pose an overwhelming global threat. The majority of all new, emerging and re-emerging diseases affecting humans at the beginning of the twenty-first century have originated from animals. Many of these infectious diseases are of serious concern to human and animal health, and they are emerging in places where humans, wildlife, and domestic animals are increasingly in contact. The emergence of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) coronavirus in 2003 and the H1N1-2009 pandemic influenza virus illustrate the consequences of not having in place capacities to detect the early stages of spillover, amplification, and spread of a new disease threat - that is, while it is still circulating (and evolving) principally in animals and before the potential threat has acquired the ability to efficiently transmit among humans. In both instances the public responses came after the viruses had fully emerged as pandemic threats. On the other hand, the emergence of the H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza virus in Hong Kong in 1997 and its re-emergence in Southeast Asia in 2003, the early detection of H7N9 virus in China, and the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus in Saudi Arabia have provided important opportunities to monitor a threat after it has spilled over, but before large-scale amplification and spread - and enable the world a longer window to prepare for the possibility of a new health threat, including the production of diagnostics and vaccines and the stockpiling of antivirals. The early recognition of a potential threat also allows for a global effort to take preemptive steps to bring the spread of the virus under greater control - and by extension possibly reduce the opportunities for it to emerge as a pandemic threat. Importantly, work, in part supported under USAID's Global Health Security and Development (GHSD) portfolio, has advanced our understanding of disease spillover, amplification, and spread by highlighting the strong correlation between "high risk" geographic areas, animal hosts, microbial agents, and people. This collective body of work, in turn, has led to the recognition that risk-based intervention strategies enable targeting disease detection to those places, populations, times or situations where risk of viral spillover, amplification, and spread is greatest and the likelihood of detecting these events is highest. As of April 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports over 25,500 suspected and confirmed cases of Ebola in West Africa and more than 10,00 Ebola- related deaths. The Ebola crisis is derailing lives and livelihoods in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. Fears of infection have severely disrupted economic and social activity, delivery of government services, and international development efforts in East/ Southeast Asia with secondary effects in other parts of Africa. If the epidemic is not contained during 2015, these costs will multiply dramatically. The United States is actively engaged and in December 2014, Congress approved the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2015 (SFOAA), authorizing $5.4 billion to fight the Ebola crisis, including nearly $2.5 billion allocated to USAID. Along with EVD response and preparedness, the White House and Congress have prioritized support for the international GHSA to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease outbreaks, and the SFOAA includes $312 million to USAID for rapid and consistent implementation and whole of government coordination of GHSA over the next few years. As a core contributor to USG implementation of the GHSA action packages, the EPT-2 program will directly improve the capacity of more than 20 focus countries in Africa, Asia, and the Near East to meet GHSA objectives. The effective response to the challenges caused by the emerging multifaceted health threats undoubtedly requires a multi-disciplinary approach. The EVD epidemic, MERS, and a recent reintroduction of AI in poultry in Nigeria are jarring examples of the need for greater capability in all countries and across multiple sectors to rapidly detect and respond to new or re-emerging public health threats. In November 2014 USAID/GHSD launched the second five-year phase of the EPT portfolio (EPT-2). As with its predecessors AI and EPT-1, EPT-2 is focused on mitigating the impact of novel "high-consequence pathogens" arising from animals through a suite of One Health investments with the goal of enabling: early detection of new disease threats; effective control of new threats through enhanced "national-level" preparedness; and, a reduction in the risk of disease emergence by minimizing those practices and behaviors that trigger the "spillover, amplification, and spread" of new viruses. At the core of EPT-2 are seven new areas of strategic focus: Developing longitudinal data sets for understanding the biological drivers of viral evolution, spillover, amplification, and spread.

INNOVATION ADVISOR
WASHINGTON, DC

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through CAMRIS International partnered with IAP World Services Inc., (IAPWS), to recruit and hire qualified individuals for an Innovation Advisor, Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact, Office of the Assistant Administrator, Bureau for Global Health, United States Agency for International Development. BACKGROUND: In 2012, the White House announced that USAID would establish a center of excellence in the Global Health Bureau to accelerate the development, introduction and scale up of priority global health interventions. This Center - the Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact - promotes and reinforces innovative, business-minded approaches to address the key bottlenecks in development, introduction and scale-up - applying business and marketplace principles to accelerate impact against some of the world's most important health challenges. Despite the existence of hundreds of technologies to improve global health, relatively few are available to save lives in the developing world, where morbidity and mortality burdens are greatest. An antiseptic that costs less than 10 cents could be used to reduce neonatal infection across South Asia. An injection that costs just 60 cents could halve a premature infant's risk of respiratory distress. A set of pills costing less than a dollar could reduce maternal death from postpartum hemorrhage. All of these technologies exist, yet none reaches more than a tiny fraction of the mothers and babies whose lives they could save. Those technologies that do eventually reach those hardest to reach populations often take far too long to get there. To address these and other challenges, the Center: Serves as a catalyst, driving innovation and partnerships; Works with the Bureau's technical offices to help prioritize existing and new innovations and interventions that align directly with the Agency's priorities in global health; Supports rapid introduction of and/or access to these priority interventions; and Seeks not only to develop best practices in innovation, introduction and uptake across sectors, but to push the boundaries of current thinking to improve the health and efficiency of the marketplace. ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: USAID/CII is seeking an Innovation Advisor to catalyze and accelerate the development of groundbreaking innovations for health, including innovations sourced through the Fighting Ebola Grand Challenge. The Innovation Advisor will be part of a dynamic start-up team that will help shape the direction of the Center, building partnerships with key thought leaders globally and pushing new boundaries in this critically important area of development. The Innovation Advisor will represent USAID on innovation issues and build and manage strong relationships internally with technical and mission staff and externally with key stakeholders, including senior executives at manufacturers, developers and other implementing organizations as well as senior officials from foundations and governmental, multilateral and nongovernmental organizations. He/she will also be responsible for co- managing the Fighting Ebola Grand Challenge and for actively contributing to the Center's Innovation Team, helping to set priorities for the Center, seize opportunities to maximize impact, and effectively support the Global Health Bureau priorities. The Innovation Advisor will be expected to have substantial experience in development and entrepreneurship or innovation, they will be asked to leverage their background to develop and execute strategies in supporting the Fighting Ebola Grand Challenge. He/she will possess, or will be expected to rapidly develop, deep knowledge and strategic perspectives on particular innovations and interventions that have been selected to meet the Fighting Ebola Grand Challenge and to think creatively on partnerships and collaborations that would help to foster their success and maximize their impact. We are seeking a highly motivated, entrepreneurial individual with outstanding problem-solving, analytical, communication and collaboration skills. The candidate must be able to function well independently and on teams, and have a commitment to excellence and producing results. CII places great value on the following personal qualities: resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, energy, and positive attitude.
