EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Global Health Advocacy Incubator (GHAI), an initiative of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, draws on lessons from tobacco control campaigns in more than 50 countries and its growing experience in other public health issues to drive policy change campaigns around the globe to improve health. The GHAI now seeks a new Director, Resolve Projects, Global Health Advocacy Incubator and a new Program Officer, Global Health Advocacy Incubator to join a dynamic and growing team advancing efforts to train and support non-governmental organization (NGO) partners working to improve critical public health policies in specific low-and middle-income countries.

The Director will provide leadership and strategic oversight of GHAI’s partnership with Resolve to Save Lives, strengthening Resolve’s work by identifying key partners and stakeholders in target countries, mapping the policy landscape, and advancing advocacy efforts and policy change campaigns with key governmental and nongovernmental partners. The Program Officer will support the execution of key programmatic efforts and policy change initiatives in close partnership with the Director and key contacts in DC and oversees. These positions are exciting opportunities to engage in important public health issues and partner with local NGOs to improve the lives of people around the world. The two new positions -- Director and Program Officer -- will have the unique opportunity to address emerging public health issues in low and middle-income countries and will work in partnership with civil society organizations and multilateral organizations to advance policy focused advocacy campaigns and regulatory change that aim to improve cardiovascular health, prevent epidemics, and strengthen the public health infrastructure globally.

The ideal candidate for each of these roles will bring a well-developed understanding of advocacy campaigns that lead to policy and regulatory change internationally, be a selfstarter with strong project management skills and the ability to work within cross-functional teams, and will have a demonstrated commitment to training and capacity building for in-country partners. Ideally, the Director will bring a depth of knowledge in public health globally and experience leading complex projects related to policy change in global health. S/he will have a flexible and creative approach and the personal dexterity to navigate cross cultural settings and diverse teams. For the Director, a minimum of 10 years of proven experience in advocacy and policy development internationally and familiarity with the relevant content areas is preferred. A Program Officer will provide support to the Director and bring separate and ideally complementary competence and international public health experience.
