Call for applicants Pediatric and Adolescent Programme Officer THRIVE AHD Project

The THRIVE consortium (Transforming Advanced HIV Disease CaRe in LMICs through Comprehensive and Equitable Access) – comprised of CHAI, Afrocab, Penta and operational research partners Zvitambo and Mildmay Uganda – was formed to dramatically reduce mortality among adults and CLHIV by enabling global access to critical prevention, screening, and treatment commodities, and centring local leadership and community-owned solutions to find and serve people living with AHD where they are. The consortium will build on existing and direct partnerships with communities and national governments, and global partners like WHO, PEPFAR, Global Fund, US CDC, and Aurum to ensure that efforts are not siloed, complement other Unitaid investments and solutions are scaled and sustained beyond the life of this project. For too long the focus has been on ensuring people living with HIV (PLHIV) survive, but through this project, we will find those at risk sooner and prevent opportunistic infections (OIs) to enable people to thrive.

Afrocab now invites applications to join the Thrive Project from interested individuals to support the objective of the project to:

• Strategically communicate about the program to influence others in the sector to improve resource availability and engagement of communities through prevention methods and optimization at the National and facility level. By this, the Pediatrics & Adolescent Programme Officer should be able to align recommendations across guidelines relating to HIV and opportunistic infections (OIs) and to routine child health and development interventions.

Coordinate and lead the strategic direction of the organization as it relates to the target populations, and provide leadership to the Afrocab team, collaborating closely with internal teams, external partners, and other key stakeholders to advance and Afrocab’s THRIVE goals.

• Ensuring that the AHD package is included in any curriculum of training on HIV related to children and adolescents.
