TRANSFORM/Primary Health Care Unit (PHCU) is a USAID funded project to improve healthcare outcomes to End Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths (EPCMD) in Ethiopia, which in turn supports Government of Ethiopia’s efforts within the Health Sector Transformation Plan (HSTP). TRANSFORM/PHCU will operate in the four most populous regions of Ethiopia (Amhara, Oromia, Tigray and Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region). This will be accomplished in part by: mitigating the drivers of child and maternal mortality in these regions through the facilitation and implementation of quality health service delivery; improved management and performance of health systems; and implementation of innovative and evidence-based social behavioral change and communication interventions. TRANSFORM/PHCU will strengthen the capacity of the health system to effectively use management tools and implement best practices at all levels of the health system and health care delivery with a major focus at the primary care level that includes primary hospitals and PHCUs.
Under the guidance and close supervision of the Regional Manager (RM) of the TRANSFORM/PHCU project, the Regional Operations Coordinator is responsible for implementation of financial, operational and administrative aspects of the program in the region. S/he is the focal person for financial, operational and administrative activities and engages in planning, implementation and evaluation of the financial aspects of the project in the specific region.
