Job title: Project Director, Rebranding HIV Treatment  Department: HIV/TB Based in: Harare, Zimbabwe; Lilongwe, Malawi; Johannesburg, South Africa, 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,  Nairobi, or Johannesburg 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?
