PATH seeks a Senior Project Analyst to provide financial and administrative management to a number of projects. The position is located in our PATH office in Yangon, Myanmar.

PATH is an international organization that drives transformative innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations—that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health. PATH has been working in the Mekong region since 1980, with a permanent office established in Hanoi in 1997 and an office established in Myanmar in late 2013.

The PATH Mekong Program is currently implementing a broad portfolio of activities on a range of health issues. In Myanmar, these include nutrition through the introduction of fortified rice and immunizations and vaccines, including technical assistance to the government in the introduction of the Japanese Encephalitis vaccine. Future areas of work in Myanmar are likely to include sexual and reproductive health, maternal and child health, and malaria.
