Description

Knowledge Management Officer
New Delhi

Jhpiego is a nonprofit global health leader and Johns Hopkins University affiliate that is saving lives, improving health and transforming futures. We partner with governments, health experts and local communities to build the skills and systems that guarantee a healthier future for women and families. Jhpiego translates the best science and practice into moments of care that can mean the difference between life and death for women and families. The moment a woman gives birth; the moment a midwife helps a newborn to breath. Through our partnerships, we are revolutionizing health care for the world’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people.

In India, Jhpiego works across various states in close collaboration with national and state governments, providing technical assistance in the areas of family planning, maternal and child health, strengthening human resources for health, and non-communicable diseases. These programs are funded by USAID, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, David & Lucile Packard Foundation, Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), MSD for Mothers and others.

Jhpiego is hiring Knowledge Management Officer for USAID funded Family Planning and Reproductive Health for Young Population in India project. The project vision is to demonstrate innovative models to leapfrog young people’s reproductive health and family planning outcome. It will also promote adaptation of possible models from evidence-based high impact interventions demonstrated in previous programs. This project is also expected to catalyze lessons learned from USAID’s previous investments on FP/RH for youth. The Knowledge Management Officer will support the practices and the project teams with knowledge management activities, including the Communities of Practice, coordinating and managing experts, and ensuring supporting tools are in place.
