The Associate will work hand-in-hand with the Program and Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) teams to achieve Baylor- Malawi’s mission and objectives. The Associate will provide technical support to both the TSP and Tingathe Programs by assisting in program planning, M&E reporting, data quality assurance measures, research project support, contribution to study reports, USAID reporting, analysis on program data, and other programmatic support like documentation of successes, knowledge translation, and creating multi-media presentations (photo or video) both for patient education and promotional purposes. The Associate will play an integral role in the Baylor-Malawi team by providing support and technical experience to the Tingathe and TSP programs.

Baylor College of Medicine Children’s Foundation Malawi (Baylor-Malawi) is a not-for-profit organization partnering with the Government of Malawi in the health sector. The mission is to improve the health and lives of HIV-infected children and families through high quality, high impact, ethical, state-of-the-art, comprehensive care and treatment, training of health professionals, and clinical research. Baylor-Malawi has an international reputation for innovative, evidence-based HIV service delivery programming.

Tingathe is an Outreach Program implemented by Baylor College of Medicine Children’s Foundation –Malawi (BCM-CFM) that employs Community Health Workers (CHW) to improve HIV care in Malawi. The project provides support for HIV testing, clinical and health systems strengthening, mentorship, community education, training of clinical staff, and patient case management.

USAID has awarded a grant to Baylor-Malawi to support President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Programs in the Southern Africa Region (TSP Program) to reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS in ten countries: Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Focal countries are supported to reach ambitious UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals: 90% of HIV-infected individuals know their status; 90% of patients who know their status adhere to anti-retroviral therapy (ART); and 90% of patients on ART are virally suppressed by 2020. Through the TSP, Baylor-Malawi and its partners will provide technical assistance to regional HIV/AIDS programs and build the capacity of country teams to eventually take full ownership of the programs.
