The Monitoring, Evaluation and Research Officer will work closely with the monitoring & evaluation (M&E) and senior technical teams to perform data analysis, assessing trends to illustrate and document the link between health systems strengthening interventions and improvements in service delivery and health outcomes.

For over 30 years, in nearly 100 countries, IntraHealth International has empowered health workers to better serve communities in need. IntraHealth fosters local solutions to health care challenges by improving health worker performance, strengthening health systems, harnessing technology, and leveraging partnerships.

IntraHealth has been working in Uganda for over 25 years. The current project, the USAID-funded Strengthening Human Resources for Health Activity, works to strengthen the capacities of ministries, districts, professional councils, and private not-for-profit organizations to better plan and manage the health workforce for improved health outcomes. This is achieved through three main result areas:

Result 1: Increased and equitable recruitment, deployment, and retention of health workers
Result 2: Improved health worker performance at all levels
Result 3: Improved pre-service training to meet the needs of Uganda
