EpiC Central Asia Project Description:
Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) is a five-year global project funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). EpiC is dedicated to achieving and maintaining HIV epidemic control and the project provides strategic technical assistance (TA) and direct service delivery (DSD) to break through barriers to 95-95-95 and promote self-reliant management of national HIV programs by improving HIV case-finding, prevention, and treatment programming. After the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, EpiC was also modified to start implementing COVID-19 response activities. In 2020, FHI 360 through EpiC launched a new multi-year project in Central Asia being implemented in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. Building on the successes to date in the three countries, EpiC continues to focus on expanding HIV case finding in the community, and treatment initiation, adherence, and retention support for people living with HIV (PLHIV), with a focus on select key population groups. In 2020, FHI 360 and EpiC started implementing COVID-19 response activities in Tajikistan. While EpiC takes a regional approach in the overarching management of the Central Asia project, each country has its own respective targets, priority focus areas and expected deliverables.
The EpiC Tajikistan Project Director will have overall responsibility for administration, program management, performance monitoring and technical implementation and oversight of all aspects of EpiC activities in Tajikistan, under the oversight of the EpiC Central Asia Regional Project Director. They will serve as the primary point of contact for EpiC activities in Tajikistan, which includes but is not limited to both HIV and COVID-19 response. They will provide technical and management leadership to the country project and ensure successful implementation of the work plan and achievement of the project’s targets and goals. The EpiC Tajikistan Project Director will provide technical and programmatic oversight directly to the activity areas. They will be required to coordinate and work with a diverse group of organizations and stakeholders, such as the Ministry of Health, senior government officials, dignitaries, country health staff, international and national development partner organizations, and the USAID mission. The EpiC Tajikistan Project Director will ensure that technical efforts are evidence-based, community-driven and will contribute to the deliverables in the country.
Suitably qualified candidates openly living with HIV and/or who are representative of key populations affected by HIV are actively encouraged to apply.
