Credence and its partner, the Public Health Institute (PHI), are both employers for GHTASC, and are seeking a Data Team Program Analyst/Coder in USAID’s Global Health Vaccine Access and Delivery Initiative under GHTASC.

Note: This is a term-limited position through September 30, 2023

Summary Statement

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Bureau for Global Health (GH) serves as the agency’s primary source of technical expertise, leadership, and donor coordination for the health sector, including HIV and AIDS, infectious diseases, child and maternal health and nutrition, family planning and reproductive health, and health systems strengthening and reform. GH is responsible for advancing field-relevant, state-of-the-art research and the transfer of new technologies and approaches to field programs. Through its staff, programs and country teams, GH provides critical support to USAID missions and field programs in more than 70 countries.

Over 6.2 million people have died from the COVID-19 pandemic. It has further disrupted access to essential services including immunization and put tens of millions at risk of contracting vaccine-preventable diseases. The Biden Administration has called on the world to collectively end the COVID-19 pandemic as soon as possible, and has introduced ambitious targets in three critical areas for ending this pandemic and preventing and preparing for the next: Vaccinate the World; Save Lives Now; and Build Back Better. As noted in the COVID-19 Global Response and Recovery Framework (GRRF), the U.S. government (USG) has committed to supporting the target of vaccinating 70% of the world population by the end of 2022.

To meet the ambitious goals set by the Biden-Harris Administration and the GRRF, the Bureau for Global Health joined forces with the Agency’s COVID-19 Task Force (CTF) to launch USAID’s COVID-19 Vaccine Access and Delivery Initiative (VADI) to support the USAID Administrator’s Global VAX commitments including: overseeing the historic rollout of more than a billion vaccine doses; working closely with USAID Missions to coordinate, supply, and strengthen country readiness and delivery; and managing our partnership with COVAX; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF); the World Health Organization; and others.

The key to controlling the pandemic lies in implementing a comprehensive public health and clinical strategy in every country. To prevent transmission and expand access to evidence-based, high-quality care and treatment for patients with moderate to severe COVID-19 infections, the Global Health Bureau has launched the Saving Lives Now agenda. Saving Lives Now aims to reduce morbidity and mortality, mitigate transmission, and strengthen health systems, including to prevent, detect, and respond to pandemic threats to respond to COVID more broadly.
