The International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH) is a collaboration between the University of Washington and the University of California, San Francisco. It is a center in the University of Washington's Department of Global Health and has offices throughout Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean. I-TECH's 700 worldwide staff work in partnership with local ministries of health, universities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), medical facilities, and other organizations to support the development of a skilled health work force and well-organized national health delivery systems. I-TECH's activities occur primarily in the technical areas of health system strengthening; health workforce development; operations research and evaluation; and prevention, care, and treatment of infectious diseases.
The primary purpose of the Monitoring, Evaluation and Operations Research Technical Advisor is to strengthen the capacity of the Lighthouse Trust clinic to conduct clinic based operations research that builds on routine and non routine data collection. The ability of the Lighthouse Trust clinic to lead such research will support clinical programs and the progression of pilot studies into evidence based practice for more than 22,000 patients in active care. The Technical Assistant will work to systematically build the skills of Lighthouse staff to identify, design, implement and report on clinical and program oriented operations research that addresses gaps in the provision of quality care for pre-ART and ART patients in the public sector in Malawi.
