About Community Partnerships for Respectful Care (CPRC) Project:
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under the New Partnerships Initiative (NPI) has awarded CPRC to the Americares Foundation Inc.. NPI is shifting the focus of USAID's traditional partners to mentoring, capacity-building, and technical oversight, by using umbrella mechanisms and sub-awards strategically to enable new and underutilized local partners to lead development in their own communities and advance the Journey to Self-Reliance. USAID seeks to expand its network of partnerships with local organizations because they can mobilize quickly and take advantage of long-standing grassroots relationships to bring needed interventions directly to people at risk. .
The TL-MNH will provide technical and programmatic oversight and direction in the areas of reproductive health, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH), and nutrition of the CPRC project. Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
