Program Associate – Tools for Integrated Management of Childhood Illness

The Program Associate will play a large role working on the Tools for Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (TIMCI) project. TIMCI is a multi-year project funded by Unitaid and led by PATH to accelerate availability, adoption and scale-up of tools to identify severe illness and decrease mortality in children under five years of age. TIMCI has two major goals that both seek to improve detection of severe disease in children under five: 1) to improve healthcare workers’ ability to diagnose severe disease by equipping them with pulse oximeters (POX) and electronic decision support tools (eCDSTs); and 2) to accelerate the development and market entry of non-invasive devices that augment the features of a standard POX with one or more additional vital sign measurements (multimodal devices). Project work will include program implementation, evidence generation, market strengthening, and research utilization to influence scale-up and will take place in five countries: India, Kenya, Myanmar, Senegal, and Tanzania. For this project, the successful candidate will work closely with the Project Director, Project Manager, TIMCI country M&E Officers, and Output/Activity Leads on various work streams that aim to develop and implement strategies that accelerate the introduction and scale-up of POX, multimodal devices, and eCDSTs.
