Independent Review Committee (IRC) Members

Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance
  • Job Code
    57303

Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance is a public-private partnership committed to saving children’s lives and protecting people’s health by increasing equitable use of vaccines in lower-income countries. The Vaccine Alliance brings together developing country and donor governments, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the World Bank, the vaccine industry, technical agencies, civil society, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other private sector partners. Since 2000, Gavi has contributed to the immunisation of nearly 640 million children and the prevention of more than 9 million future deaths.

Gavi relies upon its Independent Review Committee (IRC), an independent and impartial group of experts, to guarantee the integrity and consistency of an open and transparent funding process. The IRC considers requests for Gavi support holistically, and makes recommendations to Gavi on whether to fund country plans and programmes – for both new vaccine support and health systems strengthening support.

Gavi now seeks to appoint 30 additional public health experts as new IRC Members. Successful IRC Members will bring proven expertise and eminence in a field of public health relevant to Gavi. Collectively, the pool will include expertise in immunisation programmes, in particular on measles and rubella, HPV, and typhoid, and further expertise in health system strengthening, cold chain and logistics, financial and budget analysis, in the context of developing countries and, ideally, fragile and emergency settings.

Gavi seeks individuals who are not only well-rounded technical experts, but who are true team players, effective under pressure. The ability to communicate convincingly, both orally and in written work, is essential. The working language of the IRC is English. Fluency in French is highly advantageous, and is a requirement for at least half of the appointments; fluency, or a working ability, in Spanish or Portuguese is helpful.

Gavi has retained Russell Reynolds Associates to assist with these appointments.

The closing date for applications is 21 April 2018
