The Community Health Advocacy Officer, Health Investment & Policy, will have primary responsibility for developing and executing the Liberia Advocacy Strategy as part of a proposed partnership award with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This proposed partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation aims to inform broader global advocacy for community health workforce programming in conjunction with a related investment with USAID/UNICEF/ Integrating Community Health (ICH) which strengthens and unifies learning around community health across multiple countries, grants and delivery models. The Community Health Advocacy Officer will support the refinement and implementation of the Liberia advocacy strategy that addresses cost-effectiveness, quality, feasibility and potential for scale to support the Liberia Ministry of Health, policymakers, other Ministries within the Government of Liberia (Education, Gender, Youth and Sports) and funding audiences (e.g. donors, the Ministries of Health and Finance) for continued investment and sustainment of the National CHA Program in Liberia.
