Pact seeks a Project Director for the ACHIEVE Dominican Republic Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) program. ACHIEVE is a five-year, USAID-funded global cooperative agreement with the dual objectives of attaining and sustaining HIV epidemic control among at-risk and hard to reach pregnant and breastfeeding (PBF) women, infants, children, and youth, as well as to mitigate the impact of HIV/ AIDS and prevent HIV transmission among these populations; and supporting the transition of prime funding and implementation to capable local partners in order to meet the PEPFAR goal of 70% of funding to local partners. The OVC program in the Dominican Republic will provide targeted support to individuals of Haitian descent and their families to address barriers to care and facilitate access to key complementary services and will build the capacity of local implementing partners to design, implement and track services received in accordance with PEPFAR requirements.
The Project Director will be responsible for the overall management and operations of the project. She/he will supervise project implementation and ensure the project meets stated goals and reporting requirements. The Project Director will take a leadership role in coordination among USAID and key stakeholders and other implementing partners.
