3 New Jobs at IntraHealth International Company.

IntraHealth International is a global health nonprofit that has worked in over 100 countries since 1979. We improve the performance of health workers and strengthen the systems in which they work so that everyone everywhere has the health care they need to thrive.

IntraHealth is calling for and taking urgent action to protect frontline health workers from the on-the-job dangers posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. For 40 years, we’ve known that frontline health workers are every country’s first line in detecting, reporting, and responding to emerging threats to global health security. That’s why we train and equip local health workers on disease surveillance and response, infection prevention, occupational safety and health, and much more.

We focus on health workers. Without them, health care doesn’t happen.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
The project will build upon achievements of previous USAID-funded VMMC project and support the Government of Tanzania (GoT) through a five-year period to reduce new HIV infections and increase ownership of the VMMC program through scaling-up and sustaining VMMC coverage of 95 percent in five USAID supported regions, provide technical support for integration of VMMC into GoT’s routine health care service, and transition the VMMC services to GoT in line with the national sustainability plan by 2028. 

This activity consists of three main objectives: 
(1) expand access to safe, high-quality VMMC services for boys and men 15 years and above, 
(2) increase demand for and use of VMMC services, and 
(3) improve country ownership for continuity of integrated sustainable VMMC services.
