Over 80 years ago, Albert Einstein helped create the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Today, we are a leading humanitarian and development organization working in more than 40 countries and 26 U.S. cities to help people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future. The IRC has been present in Liberia since 1996, serving as a lead partner in the health sector. The country program supports the Ministry of Health (MOH) in strengthening the health care systems and service delivery at all levels in accordance with the MOH national standards.

In recent years, IRC Liberia has deepened its commitment to supporting the Government of Liberia to strengthen its health recovery efforts - first from the devastating civil war, the Ebola crisis, and now the COVID-19 Outbreak. The Scaling Up Community Health Activities Project presents an opportunity to improve health services in hard-to-reach communities and the rebuilding of health systems in Liberia.

 Job Overview

The IRC is running a four-year cooperative agreement with USAID Community Health Activity work in Lofa, Bong, River Gee, and Grand Kru to assist in the decentralization process and ensure that county and community-level systems are equipped to deliver high-quality community-based services in line with crucial MOH strategies. This project will strengthen the Liberian community health system to provide health care services in hard-to-reach areas while supporting sustainable country ownership of community-based health services through technical assistance and capacity building of the Ministry of Health (MOH)/County Health Teams (CHTs). This project will increase service providers’ coverage in underserved districts and improve their capacity to deliver quality health services.
