Executive Director,
American International Health Alliance

The American International Health Alliance (AIHA), a leader in global public health development is searching for its next Executive Director. Headquartered in Washington DC, AIHA’s partnerships and programs represent one of the US healthcare sector’s most coordinated responses to a broad range of issues affecting global health. AIHA’s twinning model provides technical assistance for the underlying structure that supports health reforms, offering counsel and guidance. Clinical and administrative programs are more sustainable due to the partner-recipients ability to identify key issues and create their own solutions. Particular attention is focused on the need for low-tech, economically-viable programs that increase productivity and quality of care without imposing new burdens that would impede long-term success and feasibility. Funding for these programs currently comes primarily from the federal government in addition to other public-private partnerships.

Due to several forces, global public health development is going through a transition. Competition for funding is becoming more difficult to secure. Participation from volunteers is challenging due to changes in how healthcare is delivered in the US. Politics, too, are impacting global health. The next Executive Director will have to navigate AIHA through these and other external dynamics as well as internal transitions, not least of which is the retirement of the founding Executive Director.

The next Executive Director will be responsible for developing a strategic plan that will take into consideration all of the changes in global public health and how AIHA can turn potential challenges into opportunities. This will include identifying new funding sources, diversifying and growing program offerings as well as developing other revenue opportunities that will build on the success of the core of AIHA’s mission. The ideal candidate will possess broad knowledge of global health in developing countries who can seamlessly navigate in very diverse, cross-cultural environments. Additionally, the successful candidate will have a deep understanding of both public and private funding sources. As the face of AIHA, the Executive Director is seen as a charismatic, high-profile, visionary, entrepreneurial business development leader/manager who will continue to build on the successful relationships with current stakeholders as well as develop new strategic relationships and partnerships.
