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.
Job Title: M&E And Data Manager
PATH is seeking M&E and Data Manager to provide technical direction for the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of the Access Accelerated (AA) funded Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) prevention and control program in Ghana. The project goal is to advance the Ghanaian NCD strategy through targeted, coordinated multi-sectoral action. The objective is to identify synergies in NCD program implementation across sectors and partners in-country, thereby maximizing the effectiveness of limited resources to reduce Ghana’s NCD burden.
The M&E and Data Manager will provide technical leadership for the M&E portion of the AA funded NCD prevention and control program in Ghana. S/he will support the development of the M&E framework, the introduction of the NCD Global Assessment Framework (NGAF) and update national health information systems in the country. The incumbent will manage the full data lifecycle for the project, including design, data collection, data visualization, analysis, and reporting. The M&E and Data manager will approach NCDs data gathering and multi-sectoral stakeholder engagement through the lens of health system strengthening and capacity-building, coordination, and long-term sustainability and resource mobilization. To ensure compliance with partner organization protocols and PATH’s organizational policies, s/he will also develop and maintain critical relationships with in-country stakeholders including officers of the Ministry of Health, Ghana Health Service, donors, and implementing partners from the private sector. The position also serves a liaison to PATH HQ’s M&E department to ensure timely and adequate support.
Our four-year vision is to transform the non-communicable disease (NCD) response by empowering stakeholders through information and data and technical guidance, thus strengthening health systems and increasing demand for prevention and care. This, in turn, will lead to increased access to high-quality, consistent NCD screening and care services, essential commodities, and prevention information, ultimately decreasing NCD-related morbidity and mortality.
Applicants considered for this position are to be Ghana nationals. This position is based in Accra. Candidates outside of Accra will be responsible for their relocation to Accra.
Early application is encouraged as we will review applications throughout the advertising period and reserve the right to close the advert early.
