Recruitment #22-003184-0005






MDH/Prevention and Health Promotion Administration, Infectious Disease Prevention and Health Services Bureau/Center for HIV Prevention and Health Services/Program Improvement Unit/Program Evaluation Division, Baltimore, Maryland

Main Purpose of Job

The mission of the Maryland Department of Health (MDH)’s Prevention and Health Promotion Administration (PHPA)'s Infectious Disease Prevention and Health Services Bureau (IDPHSB) is to improve the health of Marylanders by reducing the transmission of HIV, STIs, and viral hepatitis, as well as by helping impacted people live longer and healthier lives. IDPHSB works in partnership with Local Health Departments (LHDs), providers, community-based organizations, and public and private sector agencies, in order to provide public health leadership in the prevention, control, monitoring, and treatment of these infectious diseases.

In partnership with other IDPHSB offices and centers, along with impacted communities and public and private sector partners, the Center for HIV Prevention and Health Services (CHPHS) manages federal grants which fund the provision of these services, and awards LHDs, Federally-Qualified Health Centers, community-based organizations, and other service delivery providers to deliver HIV prevention, testing, clinical, and support services. These federal grants also provide support and technical assistance to develop the capacity of sub-recipients and individuals to successfully deliver those services. 

This position will coordinate and supervise the Program Evaluation Division (PED), within the CHPHS’ Program Improvement Unit. The PED analyzes Statewide service delivery data along the HIV continuum of care in order to describe trends, evaluate changes in HIV prevention and health services outcomes, and identify best practices, performance gaps, and unmet needs. The PED then shares the analysis results with Program Managers, implementing partners, leadership, and other stakeholders through ongoing and periodic evaluation reports. 

This position will report to the Deputy Chief of Program Improvement for the CHPHS.
