Job Title: Director of Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, and Learning, Zambia Accessible Markets for Health (ZAM-Health)

Reports to Deputy Chief of Party, ZAM-HEALTH
Who we are
We’re Population Services International (PSI), a leading global health organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.
There are over 7,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds - from the medical industry to the music business - all with unique skills we bring to the job.
Society for Family Health (SFH), PSI’s network member in Zambia, works with the Government of Zambia and the private sector to improve the lives of vulnerable Zambians. For nearly 20 years, SFH has supported delivery of reproductive health, HIV and AIDS, malaria and child survival services and products in line with the policies and priorities identified by the government of Zambia.
PSI/SFH seeks a Director of Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, and Learning (MERL) (local position) to lead the management of all reporting and research activities under an anticipated $35-38M 5-year USAID-funded project in Zambia. The project will improve health outcomes for Zambians by increasing the use of essential health products and services among priority audiences through expanded availability and accessibility of quality health products and services in the private sector.
