  • In anticipation of a new multi-year, multi-sectoral USAID-funded “Uganda Health Activity”, IMA World Health/Corus International is seeking a Director, Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (Director, MEL).

  • 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:

  • Improved access to and use of quality health services in maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), family planning (FP), reproductive health (RH), nutrition, water-sanitation-hygiene (WASH), and infection prevention and control (IPC) at the facility and community levels;

  • Enhanced local ownership and leadership for sustainable health outcomes; and

  • Strengthened health system resilience at the regional, district, and community-levels. UHA also will strengthen the capacity of local PEPFAR implementing partners (IPs) to lead and sustain the epidemic response as part of sustainability efforts.

  • Reporting to the COP, the Director, MEL will oversee all monitoring, evaluation, learning, and related components of UHA, including the design and implementation of the Activity Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Plan (AMELP) and corresponding information system to track delivery against targets. As part of this work, the Director, MEL will guide reporting processes among technical staff, ensuring timely, accurate, and complete reporting.

  • The position also will promote learning and knowledge sharing of best practices, and dissemination of lessons learned and project outcomes as part of its CLA
    approach. The Director, MEL will mentor and support all the technical staff in MEL functions and will manage any MEL-related program staff. This position also will strengthen integrated health and HIV/AIDS reporting capacity among local PEPFAR and GoU partners.
