  • In anticipation of a new multi-year, multi-sectoral USAID-funded “Uganda Health Activity”, IMA World Health/Corus International is seeking a Technical Director, HIV/AIDS and Health Systems Strengthening (HIV/AIDS and HSS).

  • Corus International is a family of organizations which believes that those who were born into impossible circumstances deserve the opportunity for a better life. Corus was formed through the strategic merger of IMA World Health (operating as a public health organization since 1960), and Lutheran World Relief (operating as a livelihoods organization since 1945), and today includes the smaller entities of Charlie Goldsmith Associates, Ground Up Investing, and Farmers Market Coffee. Corus International works in over 20 countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America, with a primary focus on health, livelihoods, and emergency response.

  • The Uganda Health Activity (UHA) aims to increase access to, and use of quality healthcare services, and to improve the performance of the health system at subnational levels in priority districts. Intended high-level results include:

  • The Technical Director, HIV/AIDS and HSS will be responsible for technical oversight of TA activities for strengthening PEPFAR local IPs and HSS (IR 3). The Technical Director, HIV/AIDS and HSS reports directly to the COP and works in tandem with the Technical Director, IHSD. This position will take a leadership role in ensuring UHA meets stated HIV/AIDS and HSS goals, quality standards, and reporting
