Technical Director

Tanzania Full-Time

ICAP at Columbia University works in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Community, Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOH) in Tanzania to support the implementation of high-quality comprehensive family-focused HIV Prevention, Care and Treatment services with funding from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through PEPFAR. A key aspect of the program is to build the capacity of the MOH, at the national and sub-national levels, and indigenous CBO/NGOs to manage HIV programs, including financial, administrative, program management and technical advisory skills. The organization has employed talented, dynamic individuals with strong clinical backgrounds and public health management expertise to achieve its programmatic objectives.

ICAP is currently implementing a large Combination Prevention project in Kagera and a Key Populations friendly clinic in Mwanza, as well as providing technical assistance to improve pediatric HIV testing and counseling. In 2016, ICAP will implement a household population survey (PHIA) countrywide to analyze HIV prevalence and incidence. Additionally, ICAP aims to expand and diversify its current portfolio of activities by implementing innovative strategies, incorporating and piloting new technologies and promoting scientific research that will guide Tanzania health decision makers.

Reporting to ICAP’s Country Director in Tanzania, the Technical Director is responsible for the strategic direction, day-to-day activities and overall performance of the technical team in supporting the clinical, training, and research aspects of ICAP’s activities in HIV prevention, care and treatment, tuberculosis, and other public health programs.
