  1. Coordinateur de Projet OPP-ERA Guinée

    Offre d'emploi. CDD. Guinée. Publiée le 15/09/2017.



    Solthis is an international medical NGO which aims at improving access to care for people in limited-resources settings. Its action is based on three modes of intervention: Health Systems Strengthening, Operational Research and Advocacy, with methodology based on multilevel & multidisciplinary approach: Care services delivery (medical and paramedical staff, midwives, therapeutic educators and psycho-social workers, etc.); laboratory (technicians, etc.); pharmacy (procurement, logistics supply chain teams, pharmacist, etc.); the health information system; and lastly the coordination bodies.

    Project Summary

    This position takes place in the OPP-ERA Project (http://opp-era.org).

    OPP-ERA’s innovative solution aims to improving HIV-1 monitoring by increasing access to routine, affordable VLTs and HIV -1 Early Infant Diagnosis in LMICs. It contributes to global momentum, putting in practice UNAIDS 90-90-90 Strategy commitments and the WHO “Treat All” guidelines. OPPs (open polyvalent platforms) are appropriate for low- and middle-income countries and are high performing. The open nature of the platform allows for new suppliers of complementary components of the platform to enter the market and increase competition. The project aims to stimulate a sustainable supply of OPP quality components and create a shift in the current market dynamics.

    The project goal is to increase effective coverage of optimized HIV/AIDS-related tests (VLTs, EID) and demonstrate polyvalent use (TB, HBV) in LMICs. Within the project, we intend to significantly contribute to the scaled-up access to key HIV-related diagnostics in the four project countries (Burundi, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire and Guinea), in complementarity to other technologies (integrated platforms and POC).

    The project outcome is an increased use of OPPs for VLT and EID at the global level. By increasing access to quality VLTs and EID and providing tools to help other countries effectively use OPPs, we intend to contribute to the scale up and global use of OPPs, broadening the OPP market. In this way recipient countries can choose the most appropriate diagnostic solution according to needs. Therefore the market impact is expected on both the supply and the demand side.

    The Project is managed by a consortium (composed of ANRS, Expertise France, Sidaction and Solthis) and Solthis will lead the Phase 2 (three years) and will be the focal point for communication and reporting to UNITAID. The OPP-ERA coordination team (7 people) responsible of the overall project management for the consortium, is therefore based at Solthis HQ in Paris.

    In order to continue the Phase 2, we are looking for a Guinea Project Coordinator.
