Supporting sexual, reproductive, and maternal health (SRMH) and rights is fundamental to CARE’s mission to reduce poverty and increase social justice, and SRMH is one of four priority global program areas. In 2014, 46 CARE countries were engaged in maternal and child health programming and we reached nearly 37 million women, men and children.

CARE has been working in sexual, reproductive and maternal health programming for over 50 years in countries with some of the highest unmet need for family planning services, and some of highest maternal mortality rates. Across CARE, country offices are working in close collaboration with local and national governments and organizations and international partners to support comprehensive programs to improve coverage, quality, and equity of health services. CARE believes that access to quality sexual, reproductive, and maternal health is both a fundamental human right and a critical development issue. CARE’s SRMH team works to generate and build evidence, measure impact, and share learning globally, and to increase global impact by advocating for stronger SRMH policies and encouraging scale-up and replication of successful approaches.

CARE is seeking a Senior Technical Advisor, Evaluation & Learning to join the Sexual, Reproductive and Maternal Health & Rights (SRMHR) global team. The Senior Technical Advisor will provide leadership, coordination and support in three key areas:
