all activities under an anticipated $38M 5-year USAID/PMI-funded project. The project will strengthen
the capacity for malaria prevention, diagnosis, and treatment in both the public and private sector, as
well as ownership of health at the community and household levels, while maintaining gains made at
the health facility level in focus districts.
The COP should have significant leadership, management and international development experience;
a demonstrated track record in successfully managing government, donor and malaria community

USAID and other stakeholders involved in program implementation. The COP will also ensure that the
program is represented in national technical, policy, and planning forums with USAID/PMI, the Republic
of Uganda, and key malaria stakeholders. This position will be based in Kampala, Uganda.
