In 2018, PSI began implementing the global US President’s Malaria Initiative Impact Malaria project, with the goal of working with national governments to scale up best practices and innovations in malaria case management, control of malaria in pregnancy, and the introduction of other malaria drug-based approaches. In Sierra Leone, PSI is seeking qualified, dynamic and innovation-driven candidates for multiple positions with the Impact Malaria (IM) project. All candidates are expected to promote and demonstrate an ethical work environment in line with PSI’s values of honesty and acting with integrity.
