Job Title: Quality Improvement Advisor
Length of Contract: One Year
Salary: Commensurate with required experience and qualifications
Reports to: Senior Quality Improvement Advisor
The USAID Systems for Health Project is working with the Ghana Health Service to strengthen its efforts to reduce preventable child and maternal deaths, reduce unmet need for family planning, reduce childhood mortality and morbidity from malaria, and improve nutritional status for children under five and pregnant women. We are working to strengthen vital health system building blocks while promoting CHPS (community-based health planning and services), strategic behavior change communication, and targeted demand generation to maximize service delivery coverage.
University Research Co., LLC (URC) and its partners share the vision that, by 2019, Ghana’s health system will be sufficiently robust that the Government of Ghana (GOG) and its health workforce, in partnership with the communities they serve, will be able to sustain equitable access to, demand for, and use of high-quality, high-impact health services with reduced external support, especially in the five regions targeted by Systems for Health: Greater Accra, Central, Western, Volta and Northern.
USAID funded Ghana Systems for Health Project is seeking for an experienced Quality Improvement Advisor. He/she will work closely with the Senior Quality Improvement Advisor and other project staff as well as Ghana Health Service to develop and/or strengthen plans to strengthen cross-cutting health systems functions and high-impact clinical interventions. This will include enhancing the capacity of regional and district managers as well as providers to apply QI principles to strengthen health service delivery.
