USAID/Nepal invites applications for employment for the position of AID Development program specialist in the Health and Family Planning (HFP) office, under a personal services contract (PSC), subject to availability of funds.
Open to: All interested and Qualified Nepali Citizens
Position: AID Development Program Specialist
Deadline- April 4, 2012
Landlocked between India and China, two rapidly changing countries, Nepal remains one of the poorest countries in the world and continues to cope with the effects of a decade-long insurgency that ended in 2006. Located in the Himalaya mountain range, the country is greatly impacted by global climate change and struggles with both water scarcity in some areas and increased flooding in others. Supporting progress toward a democratic, resilient and prosperous Nepal is a priority for U.S. development efforts.
USAID programs in Nepal seek to reinforce recent gains in peace and security, stabilize the transitional government, strengthen the delivery of essential social services, expand proven health interventions, and address the global challenges of food insecurity and climate change.
