Communication Jobs in Ghana

IBTCI is currently seeking a Communications Manager for a USAID project focused on Evaluation and Research Services for Health Programs in West Africa.

In West Africa, there is a dearth of up-to-date information on key health indicators. Decision makers have insufficient evidence to determine which intervention models are best suited to overcome particular public health challenges and to achieve health-indicator targets. The project is expected to grow the evidence base to support improved resource allocation, policy advocacy, and public health programming. It will address critical gaps in the research and evidence for program implementation for USAID/West Africa’s Regional Health Office (RHO) family planning and HIV/AIDS activities. The purpose of this project is to make available relevant and timely research and evaluation findings to decision makers at USAID/WA and its regional and local partners at all levels: local, regional, national, and international.
