Our diversity is our strength; we encourage people from all
backgrounds and experiences, particularly women, to apply.
At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.
This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2015, CARE worked in 95 countries and reached 65 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs. We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.
CARE is seeking a Chief of Party (COP) who will serve as the senior member of the CHAMP consortium and provides technical and management leadership for the project in Cameroon. The primary responsibility of the COP is to ensure successful implementation of the CHAMP work plan and achievement of the project’s targets and objectives at international best practice standards.
The Continuum of prevention, care and treatment (CoPCT) of HIV/AIDS with Most-at-risk Populations in Cameroon (CHAMP) project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under Cooperative Agreement No. AID-624-A-14-00003, began on April 15, 2014. The program is implemented by CARE International in Cameroon in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University (JHU), Metabiota, (MB), Moto Action, and seven local community-based organizations. In collaboration with PEPFAR agencies, the Government of Cameroon, the Global Fund, and other key stakeholders, CHAMP works in tandem with community-based partners to strengthen and expand human rights-affirming, evidence-based, client-friendly HIV prevention, care, and treatment services for men who have sex with men (MSM), female sex workers (FSW) and their children, and sex worker clients in Cameroon.
The program aims to increase demand for, and access to, quality community and clinical services by reinforcing and expanding the creation of safe, friendly, competent community-led platforms, and integrating interventions within the larger services network. CHAMP also contributes to the evidence base as a learning program that helps drive strategic decision-making and resource planning.
The Chief Of Party coordinates the development and oversight of detailed work plans, facilitates communication, coordination, and learning across CHAMP technical and administrative staff and partners, and ensures the provision of high-quality technical support by local and international staff and consultants. S/he serves as the primary point of contact for the USAID Agreement Officer Representative in Cameroon. The COP is also the primary point of contact for information on the progress of all activities under the agreement and establishes/maintains effective mechanisms to ensure that progress and implementation concerns are regularly and promptly addressed and reported. Finally, the COP manages the preparation and presentation of all implementation plans and reports.
