USAID – Africa Presidential Malaria Advisor (Closes 4 March 2024)


USAID was created by then President John F. Kennedy in 1961. President Kennedy recognized the need to unite development into a single agency responsible for administering aid to foreign countries to promote social and economic development.

USAID was born in November 1961 and with it a spirit of progress and innovation. November 3, 2011 marked USAID’s 50th Anniversary of providing U.S. foreign development assistance From the American People. USAID’s culture continues to serve as a reflection of core American values–values that are rooted in a belief for doing the right thing.

When the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) was created, it brought together several existing foreign assistance organizations and programs.

USAID objective is to support partners to become self-reliant and capable of leading their own development journeys.

USAID makes progress toward this by reducing the reach of conflict, preventing the spread of pandemic disease, and counteracting the drivers of violence, instability, transnational crime and other security threats.

USAID promotes American prosperity through investments that expand markets for U.S. exports; create a level playing field for U.S. businesses; and support more stable, resilient, and democratic societies. USAID stands with the people when disaster strikes or crisis emerges as the world leader in humanitarian assistance.

The United States Government (USG), represented by the U.S. Agency for International Development
(USAID) is seeking offers from qualified persons to provide personal services under contract as described
