Technical Specialist | Antananarivo, Madagascar | 2022 57 views0 applications


Chemonics seeks a Technical Specialist for the USAID’s flagship private sector health project, FHM Engage that envisions a world in which health markets are responsive, equitable, resilient, and driven by consumer needs.
