With more than 40 years of experience forging multisector partnerships and with expertise in science, economics, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales up innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing Heath challenges.

PATH is home to the Malaria Control and Evaluation Partnership in Africa (MACEPA) which works closely with National Malaria Control programs in Africa to strengthen data systems and data use to better inform strategies and targeting of resources to reduce burden. Key components of this work are to generate evidence on novel and existing malaria tools to guide decision-makers, and to work with donors to ensure the resources needed to implement these interventions are available.

PATH is currently recruiting for a Technical Program Manager, Malaria, to support its malaria portfolio in Nigeria. The successful applicant will support the day-to-day management and implementation of PATH and MACEPA’s activities in Nigeria – including contributing to strategy and implementation, managing relationships with the National Malaria Control Program and partners, as well as contributing to donor reports and communication with partners.

  • Assess MACEPA’s progress against goals and donor commitments to measure impact, identify program bottlenecks or weaknesses, devise solutions to strengthen programs as necessary and ensure teams are consistently updated on progress and results.
  • Develop and manage project work plans, and associated implementation, monitoring, and control processes to facilitate accomplishment of strategic objectives.
  • Support the West Africa regional malaria team in day-to-day project coordination, analysis and review of data, and problem solving.
  • Work closely with finance and administrative staff to provide regular operational oversight.
  • Proactively identify and analyze areas of risk and advise project teams on solutions and preventative measures.
  • Draft key documents, reports, presentations, and other communications materials for a variety of purposes and audiences, summarizing developments and recommendations for program areas and external partners.
  • Support OIPH-Nigeria (PATH’s local Nigeria affiliate) operational start-up, including support with securing a bank account, identifying a coworking space, and partnering with PATH admin, finance, legal, HR, and accounting teams to ensure compliance with start-up requirements.
  • Attend monthly operational working group meetings and monthly business development meetings to provide updates and stay aligned with any operational progress or needs.
  • Serve as a liaison between in-country organizations and global PATH departments to support operational needs.
  • Contribute to business development to expand PATH portfolio in Nigeria and the West Africa region.
  • Any other duties as requested by management.
