By getting better, more accurate insights from existing data and accelerating the data-to-action cycle, countries and their partners can better respond to changes in on-the-ground conditions.

As part of this new effort, PMI launched a new quarterly reporting process to ensure operational decision-making is based on timely and granular malaria data. In addition, at the headquarters level, PMI is developing a web-based data platform (“PMI Data Lake”) with analytics tools that will facilitate the triangulation and use of relevant datasets, including visualizations of epidemiological, supply chain, entomological, demographic, programmatic, and financial data. In addition to the quarterly reporting data, the PMI Data Lake will house other supply chain data including PMI order and shipment data and procurement planning and monitoring report data.  In 2019, PMI entered a data sharing agreement with The Global Fund (GF) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) that included supply chain data.

The U.S. Government (USG) has made the fight against HIV/AIDS a top priority, not only for humanitarian reasons, but because the HIV/AIDS crisis threatens the prosperity, stability and development of nations around the world. USAID has been, and continues to be, at the forefront of the USG response in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic, funding over $25 billion in activities since the inception of its international HIV/AIDS program in 1986, with programs in nearly 100 countries worldwide. The President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), launched in 2004, is the largest commitment ever by any nation for an international health initiative dedicated to a single disease.   USAID’s Bureau for Global Health, Office of HIV/AIDS (GH/OHA) is the center of HIV/AIDS technical leadership for USAID and has primary responsibility for the Agency’s HIV/AIDS program. Within OHA, the Strategic Coordination and Communication (SCC) Division provides technical, managerial and programmatic expertise to help the Agency and its overseas Missions develop programs that respond to USG, USAID, and Congressional policy and budget priorities and incorporate innovations, best practices, and lessons learned.     The Regional Advisors (RA) Branch within SCC serves as the principal point of contact between USAID headquarters and overseas Missions in implementing HIV/AIDS programs and advancing PEPFAR goals. The Branch provides OHA, GH and the Department of State’s Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (S/GAC) with a ‘big picture’ view of HIV/AIDS programs, providing technical guidance and program recommendations based on evidence and best practices gleaned from the range of programs supported in order to promote innovation, cost-efficiency and effectiveness.   Within the RA Branch, the Performance and Transition Coordinator (PTC) provides ongoing support and coordination for PEPFAR’s country operational units and regional programs. The PTC advances USAID field teams’ achievement of PEPFAR targets, ensures accountability of USAID programming to S/GAC, and advances overseas Missions’ progress toward meeting USAID’s journey to self-reliance goals.   Job Requirements The role of the PTC will complement the more senior, technical role of GH/OHA’s Senior Country Associates (SCAs) as well as other Technical Advisors in the office. Currently, OHA’s Senior Country Associates are responsible for engaging with S/GAC Chairs in each country. SCAs not only provide technical guidance to a particular country, but also provide technical assistance across the OHA portfolio and inter-agency in their specific area of expertise. OHA also has Strategic Information, Local Partner Transition, budget, expenditure reporting and other technical advisors assigned to each country.  The PTC will coordinate closely with these subject area experts and ensure their efficient and effective communication with Missions. The PTC receives onsite guidance and oversight from the Chief, RA Branch, and performs the following major duties.  Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions of the position.
