PATH is a global organization that works to accelerate health equity by bringing together public institutions, businesses, social enterprises, and investors to solve the world’s most pressing health challenges. With expertise in science, health, economics, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales solutions—including vaccines, drugs, devices, diagnostics, and innovative approaches to strengthening health systems worldwide.
PATH, with support from UNITAID, will implement The STAR initiative Extension, a project focused on addressing market barriers to HIV self-Testing ( HIVST) roll out, and establishing the structures, systems and oversight mechanisms necessary for HIVST scale up and long-term sustainability in Uganda. The project will pave way and support advocacy for new potential Global Fund (GF) and Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) investments into scale up of HIVST. The STAR Initiative Extension will achieve direct public health impact by reducing the number of new HIV infections and averting deaths due to HIV infection by increasing demand for and access to HIVST and subsequent treatment and prevention services. This project is expected to start in March 2020 until June 2021, in seven countries: Uganda, India, Indonesia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Nigeria, and Cameroon.
PATH is seeking a Program Associate to support the teams in the implementation of HIVST STAR project. The project associate will report to the project Manager. This position will be based in Kampala, Uganda.
