This position is located in the newly created Provincial Office.  The Senior Technical Advisor oversees the technical and managerial functions of the office.  The provincial office will comprise a total of four (4) individuals, including a Technical Advisor, Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor, and an Administrative Assistant/ Chauffeur.

The Senior Technical Advisor will serve as the main U.S. Government liaison to the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) and other key stakeholders in the province.  The Provincial Medical Officer (PMO) and the District Community Medical Officers (DCMOs) will be the core GRZ contacts for the Advisor.  The incumbent will also support technical leadership and coordination with the Clinical Care and the Communicable Diseases sections within the Provincial Health Office (PHO).  In addition, s/he will organize and lead quarterly coordination meetings with the GRZ and U.S. Government partners to ensure collaboration of activities to minimize overlap and to convey USAID and PEPFAR priorities for programming.  The Advisor will extend this support to priority districts within North-Western and Luapula provinces.

Under the direction of the Decentralized Services Division Chief and the Health Office Chief, the Senior Health Advisor will communicate key USAID/U.S. policies and requirements to the districts and province, and will communicate back to the Health Office the key challenges and successes.

The incumbent will oversee and coordinate government-to-government (G2G) activities within the province.  S/he will work at a senior level in a high-priority program, possessing significant technical knowledge, in-depth proven track record of positively influencing G2G collaboration, and an ability to function independently in a highly demanding, frequently changing environment.

The Senior Technical Advisor will report to the Decentralized Services Division Chief.  Because of the close collaboration with the PHO to better integrate the USAID-supported activities into the other provincial health activities, the Advisor will also report on the integrated work plan to the PMO.

The position will include extensive travel within the three provinces (approximately 35% of the time), meeting with the DCMOs and other leadership on project coordination and other issues.

The United States Government has been pleased to intensify its efforts with the Government and people of Zambia to increase energy generation and access through clean, renewable energy.  We believe the Industrial Development Corporation, or IDC/IFC Scaling Solar program offers an excellent example, and one we have been pleased to support under Power Africa.  U.S. President Obama announced the Power Africa initiative in 2013.
