Technical Director Infectious Disease Vaccine Deployment

Local – Fixed Term Employee (Fixed Term)

Massive 2021 recruitment conducted by Government, Counties, NGOs, UN, UNDP, World Bank, international development community, UNESCO, WHO, USAID. Get the details click here)

The WVI Partnership Executive Team has recommended that COVER response vaccine-specific programming continue through 2023, in acknowledgement that low-income and fragile contexts have made inadequate progress in achieving COVID-19 vaccine coverage.  This recommendation builds also on WVI’s success in establishing itself as a global leader in immunization risk communication and community engagement (RCCE), and demand creation.

The purpose of this role is to consolidate WVI’s vaccine programming work to date, to continue to position WVI to play a leading role in vaccine uptake, and to strengthen WVI’s vaccine interventions, possibly including expansion into supply chain strengthening.  This role will include broad responsibility for technical partner engagement at global and national levels, and technical assistance for programme design and monitoring, including grant acquisition support.  The staff hired for this position should have significant infectious disease experience (in particular viral diseases), strong immunization programme experience, and operational epidemic response experience.  

While focusing on COVID-19 vaccination, it is expected that this staff will also advise on routine childhood immunization for Zero Dose Children, as the considerations for most vulnerable and humanitarian contexts largely intercede with the COVID-19 vaccination activities.
