Job Description/Requirements

QED is a global consulting firm with more than 20 years of experience providing data-driven and insightful solutions in close to 100 countries. We are passionate about transforming lives through knowledge-based solutions. Leveraging deep expertise in monitoring, evaluation, global health, and learning, we help our clients collect, analyze, visualize, and ultimately use data in more effective ways. Our work maximizes results through the use of cutting-edge technologies and innovation, organizational development, and evidence-based decision-making.



The purpose of the USAID Learning Activity (ULA) is to further strengthen USAID/Uganda's performance and improve the performance of its implementing partners, with a focus on collaborating, learning, and adapting, in order to enhance the impact and sustainability of USAID-supported contributions to Uganda’s development. The ULA will achieve this through three objectives:

  • Collaboration: Strengthened collaboration, both internally and with external stakeholders, enables USAID to better leverage expertise, learning, and resources; and deepens local ownership.
  • Learning: Systematic learning, through applied research, monitoring, and evaluation, informs and improves the relevance, quality, and cost-effectiveness of programs and operations 
  • Performing: Adaptive management of program implementation and meta-level interventions to improve the quality of USAID program outcomes.


The USAID Uganda Health Systems Strengthening (UHSS) Activity is a five-year activity (October 15, 2019, to October 15, 2024), implemented by THE Palladium Group. The goal of the UHSS Activity is to improve the performance of Uganda’s health systems in public and private health sectors at national, sub-national and community levels through providing tailored and innovative technical assistance (TA). The activity is expected to achieve three related results, namely: 

  • Improved leadership and accountability for results at each level of the health sector.
  • Increased availability and improved management of key health systems resources; and 
  • Strengthened community systems for quality health services. 


The UHSS Activity interventions are expected to be aligned to the Government of Uganda (GoU)’s Health Sector Development Plan II – 2020/21-2024/25 and USAID’s global Vision for Health Systems Strengthening (HSS). The overall technical strategy is to engage key stakeholders, empower them through increased capacity, and promote more efficient and equitable health systems. UHSS supports an enabling policy environment and generates evidence to inform planning, budgeting, financial management, and performance monitoring. The activity particularly focuses on strengthening governance, health financing, health workforce, and community systems at all levels of the health system. UHSS supports policy development and implementation; strengthens processes for responsive and evidence-based planning and budgeting, strategic data collection and use in decision-making, and more transparent and efficient management of health sector resources; and leverages new and existing partnerships, including with private sector and non-health entities.
