Description du Poste
Job title Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor
Department HIV/TB – UNITAID STAR Project
Based in Johannesburg, South Africa
Reports to the Project Director
Who we are
We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.
There are over 9,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds – from the medical industry to the music business – all with unique skills we bring to the job.
Since 2015, PSI has led implementation of the UNITAID HIV Self-Testing Africa (STAR) Project. STAR is a multi-country project (Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe) designed to evaluate and scale effective, efficient and ethical HIV self-testing (HIVST) distribution models to increase testing coverage and achieve public health impact. STAR has catalyzed the HIVST market, building increased demand among global donors and country governments and expanding supply of HIVST products. Under STAR, WHO released normative guidance on HIVST.
PSI is planning for a new phase of the STAR Project, in which HIVST will be scaled in existing STAR countries, and expanded to ten new countries throughout Africa and Asia.
We are looking for a Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor to lead program monitoring and evaluation efforts for a prospective multi-country UNITAID-funded HIV self-testing project. The Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor (M&E Advisor) is responsible for all monitoring, evaluating and reporting activities under the award. The M&E Advisor leads the development of and manages the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan (M&E Plan). The M&E Advisor develops data tools, MIS systems and maintains systems to collect and analyze information on inputs, outputs, outcomes and impact of the project. S/he liases with the project’s research partners to coordinate and share inputs. S/he conducts supportive supervisory visits to country-level sub-grantees to observe, monitor, guide, and provide feedback on the use of data and indicators; analyze monthly data, and support training of M&E personnel in quality assurance methods. This position is contingent on funding.
