We are looking for a Technical Advisor to help implement the CDC funded project “Improving HIV/STI/TB Prevention, Treatment and Care Services for Mobile Populations in the Dominican Republic” with the goal of reducing HIV prevalence through the implementation of direct service delivery in partnership with civil society and the Ministry of Health. The Technical Advisor, in conjunction with the SFH local team, will focus on continuing to build quality service delivery and effective achievement of project goals by providing on-going, dedicated leadership, open dialogue and partnership and strong team management.

This position will report to the Deputy Regional Director and will be based in the network member office of PSI in the Dominican Republic, Society for Family Health. This is a two year position, with funds secured for the first year.
