***Please do not reply to this message. If interested or have questions please contact Neil Shouba: NeilShouba@... ********
CHP International is searching for Public Health Technical Trainers for our
Peace Corps Training Project in Senegal, West Africa. Could you please
assist us in our search by making the information below available to
Returned Peace Corps Volunteers or others with relevant skills associated
with your institution?
We intend to hire two Health Trainers due to the number of Trainees in this
cycle. Trainers will spend three months preparing PCTs to help improve
overall community health in underserved rural districts in Senegal by
building Health Ministry and community capacities in health education,
promotion, and prevention programs. Priority training topics include:
malaria prevention, diarrheal diseases prevention, immunization,
pre-/post-natal care, family planning, and HIV/STD prevention. Candidates
should have at least two years' experience addressing these health areas in
West Africa, and should demonstrate continuing interest in health issues
(through advanced academic work in a health-related field or additional work
experience in a health related field). Candidates should also be proficient
in French and have experience training or teaching adults. Compensation
includes: salary commensurate with experience, meals, housing,
transportation, short-term medical insurance, and reimbursement for certain
pre-departure inoculations. Employment is Sept. 8 - Dec. 23, 2000.
Candidates should contact me (resumes and references are required for
consideration) by e-mail NeilShouba@... or by phone
(800.449.2614). CHP International actively seeks to benefit from the
various perspectives and talents of a racially and culturally diverse staff.
I would also welcome your recommendations of qualified candidates whom I
should contact. Thank you.
Very truly yours,
