For over 50 years, The Manoff Group, Inc. (TMG), a woman-owned small business, has been an international leader in pioneering innovations in community nutrition programming to improve family diets and the nutritional wellbeing of women and young children. Our approach, Behavior Integration, offers a practical methodology for realizing measurable and sustained behavior change at the individual, community, and organizational levels. Behavior Integration is based on human-centered design principles and employs techniques from disciplines such as anthropology, behavioral economics, psychology, marketing and communications to strategically build programs that enable people to practice life–enhancing behaviors. All project work is carried out in the spirit of collaborative learning and co-creation.
The USAID Family Health and Nutrition (FHN) project is a 5-year effort funded by USAID to deliver high-impact technical assistance to the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ)- led Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health and Nutrition (RMNCAH&N) Continuum of Care (CoC) Program in ways that will sustainably improve health systems performance and accelerate improvements in health outcomes.
TMG provides technical leadership and capacity development assistance within this effort, across all results areas, on strategic social and behavior change. The focus is on supporting districts to identify, prioritize and facilitate the types of activities needed to achieve meaningful and sustained change in what key system’s actors and citizens do in the face of health challenges. As part of the effort to improve health, TMG supports the project by providing focused technical expertise, support and coordination for nutrition.
Due to the cross-cutting and multi-factorial nature of nutrition and the persistent challenges to Zambia’s progress on nutrition indicators, FHN is dedicated to working closely with districts as part of a multi-partner collaboration under the GRZ’s Scaling up Nutrition (SUN), multisector approach to improve nutritional status during the first 1000 days of life and beyond. To ensure nutrition is appropriately positioned and reflected within the project, we are seeking a Nutrition Advisor.
The Nutrition Advisor will serve as the technical lead for nutrition on the project and will work closely with stakeholders at national and district level to identify priorities, learn from best practices being implemented by others, and support districts to implement, scale and sustain work to improve nutrition outcomes. The Advisor will work as part of the project’s core multi-disciplinary team and will report to the project’s Technical Director. The Advisor will also work closely with TMG’s Senior SBC Advisor in Zambia and TMG’s technical backstop, based in the United States.
