Strategic Learning Manager

Prevent Epidemics, Leadership, Governance and Financing Team

Resolve to Save Lives (RTSL) is a US-based, global public health organization with a mission to prevent 100 million deaths from heart disease and to make the world safer from epidemics. Resolve to Save Lives’ Prevent Epidemics unit works closely with Ministries of Health and national public health institutes in Africa to strengthen epidemic preparedness capacity, accelerate disease detection and response, and to use data effectively to inform action. In addition to direct partnership with governments, we also work with implementing partners including US CDC, the World Health Organization, World Bank, and Global Health Advocacy Incubator to implement programs, prototype new innovations, and ensure sustainability through increased national ownership, including domestic budget allocations.

Our Leadership, Governance, and Financing (LGF) team amplifies these efforts by concentrating on enhancing program management capabilities across vital public sector institutions. Our evidence-based approach highlights that effective epidemic response is intrinsically tied to cross-sectoral partnerships, national and sub-national coordination, community engagement, and ongoing strengthening of public health systems. To that end, we partner closely with national and sub-national teams in countries like Nigeria, Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Uganda through a range of different staffing and partnership models. We empower institutions to embrace strategic management practices, institute consistent quality improvement protocols, and cultivate an environment conducive to epidemic preparedness. One of our primary interventions is to fund and support dedicated in-house preparedness units, known as “Acceleration Teams” and strengthen country health architecture for epidemic preparedness. With a commitment to connect, simplify, and scale proven approaches, we create opportunities for shared learning, support, and collaboration across country teams to elevate their experiences and inform regional and global initiatives such as the Program Management for Epidemic Preparedness (PMEP).
