Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Director- Yemen Mission Round of Momentum APS

IMA World Health, a subsidiary of Corus International, is seeking highly motivated individuals for the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Director for the upcoming USAID-funded Yemen Mission Round of Momentum (Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Family Planning and Reproductive Health) APS. The project is expected to improve health maternal, newborn and child health outcomes in over 20 districts in Yemen. This will be accomplished through focusing USG assistance on improved access, utilization and quality of high impact Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (RMNCH) services in selected governorates.

Corus International was formed through the strategic merger of IMA World Health (operating as a public health organization since 1960), and Lutheran World Relief (operating as a livelihoods organization since 1945), and today includes the smaller entities of CGA Technologies, Ground Up Investing, and Farmers Market Coffee. Corus International works in over 20 countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America, with a primary focus on health, livelihoods, and emergency response.

Today, IMA offers extensive expertise in managing and implementing highly successful and complex donor-funded programs in nutrition, maternal and child health, health systems strengthening (HSS), malaria, HIV/AIDS, sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). IMA has managed an average of $100 million annually over the last four fiscal years, through grants and contracts from FCDO, USAID, BHA, CDC, World Bank, the Global Fund, UNDP, MCC, and private donors.

Based in Aden, the MEL Director will provide leadership to the technical and programmatic implementation of the program. This position will oversee overall management and technical oversight of the monitoring, evaluation, and learning support and research efforts for the project. S/he will develop monitoring, evaluation, and reporting (MER) systems that include appropriate indicators, baseline data, targets, and a plan to evaluate performance and produce timely, accurate, and complete reporting. The MEL Director is responsible for designing and implementing monitoring and evaluation systems, information analysis, capacity strengthening, and development of program management plans and project monitoring. The position reports directly to the Chief of Party.

The MEL Director will be based in Aden. Actual hiring is contingent upon successful agreement award and USAID approval. Yemeni nationals and female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
