New Jobs at Population Services International (PSI) Tanzania

  Express       Wednesday, July 22, 2020

 

Chief Of Party 
Who we are
As the flagship global service delivery project of the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), the PMI Impact Malaria team works with national malaria programs to fight malaria and save lives by strengthening diagnosis, treatment, and drug-based prevention for those most at risk, particularly children and pregnant women. PMI Impact Malaria (IM) is led by Population Services International (PSI) in partnership with Jhpiego, Medical Care Development International, and the Malaria Elimination Initiative at University of California San Francisco.
IM’s global goal is to reduce morbidity and mortality due to malaria and move countries towards national or subnational pre-elimination. To achieve this goal, IM supports National Malaria Control Program Managers (NMCPs) to help tackle malaria service delivery challenges by:
Closing the gaps in malaria service delivery to get the best medicine, with the correct diagnosis, to the right patients, in the timeliest manner. Unlocking the potential of key drug-based approaches, helping countries to introduce, implement, and scale-up proven innovations to move countries forward in their elimination efforts, according to each country’s unique malaria situation.
Strengthening malaria health systems and a rigorous use of data to link operational research and country-led dialogue with global technical leadership for the means of accelerating strategic service delivery improvements and advancing key learnings.
In each country, IM builds on key lessons learned from the PMI-funded Improving Malaria Diagnostics (IMaD) project (2008-2013) and MalariaCare (2013-2018). IMaD was mandated to focus solely on malaria diagnosis. MalariaCare expanded to include both malaria diagnosis and treatment. The scope of IM is expanded further to include malaria diagnosis and treatment, malaria in pregnancy, and new drug-based approaches like seasonal malaria chemoprevention, mass drug administration and reactive case detection, where appropriate.
