Job title: Project Director, Rebranding HIV Treatment  Department: HIV/TB Based in: Harare, Zimbabwe; Lilongwe, Malawi; or Nairobi, Kenya Up to 25% international and domestic travel Reports to the Vice President, HIV and TB Programs * Position contingent upon funding   Who we are With over 50 years of experience, working in over 60 countries, Population Services International (PSI) is the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. PSI is reimagining healthcare, by putting the consumer at the center, and wherever possible – bringing care to the front door. We are working to fix market failures, shape future health markets and shift policy and funding to better support consumer empowered healthcare.   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 doctors, epidemiologists and professionals from the medical industry to marketers from the fast-moving consumer goods industry - all with unique skills we bring to the job.   Join us! PSI has been commissioned by a trio of donors to develop a new global brand for communicating the benefits of HIV treatment. In the West, the slogan “undetectable = untransmissable” or “U=U” has revolutionized the way many people living with HIV see treatment and communicate about their HIV status. It has restored confidence and safety to sexual relationships and powerfully reduced the stigma of HIV.   This project will use principles of human centered design, marketing and behavior change to  identify an equally powerful message about treatment’s benefits for audiences in sub-Saharan Africa. Building off insights garnered from other projects and research, and in team work with a market researcher and a creative agency, we will develop the core of a global “brand” for treatment that reframes anti-retroviral therapy from a negative associated with HIV, to a positive associated with health, normalcy and belonging. We’ll tailor this brand to two local contexts in Africa, building robust, multi-level communications campaigns. Our audiences will be people living with HIV, but also health care workers and the broader community. We want everyone to know that HIV treatment returns those living with the virus to health and eliminates transmission of the virus.   Success will be measured both in terms of changed attitudes and beliefs, as well as in increased uptake of HIV treatment, improved adherence to medication and greater retention in treatment programs.   PSI is seeking an experienced and creative Project Director who will lead the brand and campaign development, global stakeholder engagement and oversee project activities and manage collaboration between a number of partners. The Project Director should have: a track-record of developing and implementing marketing/behavior change campaigns that include mass media, building trust among diverse stakeholders to achieve complex outcomes; significant management and leadership experience, preferably of large in-country projects with multiple sub-awardees; a history of successfully managing government and donor relations as well as community engagement in a project; a strong interest in communications and marketing; and experience successfully implementing HIV treatment programs. The successful candidate will be knowledgeable of the sub-Saharan African HIV epidemic  and response, and familiar with the relevant scientific literature on HIV testing and treatment. This leadership position will be based in either Harare, Lilongwe or Nairobi and is only open to candidates who are currently authorized to work in Kenya, Malawi, or Zimbabwe and do not require future sponsorship.   Sound like you?

Project Director, HIVST Private Sector* Department: HIV & TB Based in Nairobi, Kenya OR Kampala, Uganda Up to 25% regional travel (Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria) Reports to the Vice President, HIV/TB Date: August 2020   Who we are   We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to lead healthier lives and plan the families they desire by marketing affordable products and services that range from mosquito nets to contraceptives 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.   Join us!   Are you looking to be a transformational leader in private sector HIV self-testing (HIVST) and self care? PSI is looking for a Project Director for an exciting new project to oversee the project’s launch, inception phase, and scale up. Substantial evidence demonstrates that HIVST increases consumer demand for HIV testing, especially among populations at risk for HIV who are resistant to testing through more conventional routes. Nascent programs to distribute HIVST kits through pharmacies and drug shops have shown some success, but key questions remain about the capacity to achieve public health impact with HIVST in the private sector around effective use, price, demand, and quality. This project is designed to develop a roadmap for reaching a healthy private HIVST market, as well as the building the business case for donors, manufacturers, governments, and investors for investing to create that healthy market. Expected to launch in September/October 2020, this is a three-year project in Kenya, Nigeria, and Uganda funded by the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).   The Project Director should have significant leadership, program management, and development experience in Africa, with a demonstrated track record in successfully managing highly collaborative projects that engage multiple stakeholders. We’re looking for individuals with deep experience in the HIV response who are interested in evaluating and piloting innovative, market-based approaches to solving public health problems.    This position requires teamwork, coordination, creativity, flexibility, and emotional intelligence. We want someone who can manage multiple and competing priorities, solve problems collaboratively, enjoy their work, and liaise diplomatically and effectively with multiple stakeholders and diverse teams.  You are able to see the big picture while understanding program details. This position is contingent upon funding.  There are no allowances for this position.
