Poste proposé : Director of Finance and Administration - DRC IHP (66737)

Organization Overview
The International Development Division focuses on improving the lives and economic well-being of people in lower and middle-income countries. We command technical expertise in health, agriculture, climate change, food security and governance—as well as in international evaluation. Our multi-layered health portfolio includes policy, health promotion and disease prevention, health finance, and health systems management. In partnership with government clients and local experts, our high-quality programs in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East are known for impact and innovation.
Project Description
USAID’s Integrated Health Program (USAID IHP) is a $314 million seven year intervention working across nine provinces in the DRC, in 178 health zones. USAID IHP supports USAID’s strategy on Health Systems Strengthening in the DRC. USAID seeks to strengthen the capacity of Congolese institutions and communities to deliver quality, integrated health services to sustainably improve the health status of the Congolese population.  This program is now in its second year; the position of Director of Administration and Finance is distinct from the position of Director of Operations, reflecting changes in Abt’s global structure, recognizing the importance of differentiating Finance and Operations.
