B. Summary Statement

The United States Government (USG) has made the fight against HIV/AIDS a top priority, not only for humanitarian reasons, but because the HIV/AIDS crisis threatens the prosperity, stability and development of nations around the world. The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is a USG global initiative to control the HIV/AIDS pandemic. It is the largest commitment by any nation to combat a single disease. PEPFAR is committed to supporting activities that are grounded in science and critical to saving lives and preventing new HIV infections. PEPFAR’s core activities include a focus on health systems, including health finance; human resources for health; commodity procurement and supply chain systems; and laboratory systems.

PEPFAR recognizes that donor resources alone cannot meet the needs of the estimated 38 million people living with HIV globally. As developing economies grow and begin to more fully realize their economic potential, unlocking domestic financing for HIV/AIDS becomes a critical element of achieving long-term sustainability of the HIV/AIDS response. Countries are increasingly taking the lead in managing, implementing, and financing their national HIV responses. The global pandemic of COVID-19 is bringing disruption to the HIV/AIDS response and to the expected increase in domestic resources that would have been committed without the effects on COVID.

The Office of HIV/AIDS (OHA), within USAID’s Bureau for Global Health (GH), has overarching responsibility for the full range of USAID’s HIV/AIDS programs and serves as the Agency’s lead office for implementing the interagency U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).  The Systems and Program Sustainability (SPS) Division provides USAID leadership

in building sustainability of the HIV/AIDS response through investment in health systems.  SPS provides technical leadership and strategic direction on issues related to health systems strengthening, financing, health workforce, advancing sustainability, and public-private partnerships for HIV/AIDS programs. SPS consists of three branches: the Health Finance and Economics (HFE) Branch, the Health Workforce Branch, and the Capacity Building and Partnerships Branch.

The Health Financing Data Analyst will be assigned to the SPS Division/HFE Branch and will receive programmatic and technical guidance from the HFE Branch Chief as her/his Point of Contact (POC).
