PSI harnesses the vitality of the private sector to address the health problems of low-income and vulnerable populations in more than 50 countries across the globe through programs in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), malaria, reproductive health, noncommunicable diseases, and HIV. This includes 20 years of extensive experience in over 20 countries creating markets for household water treatment products and 10 years of landscaping, analyzing, designing, and implementing market-based sanitation interventions in 14 countries in Asia and Africa. Since its founding, PSI’s approach has evolved to primarily focus on helping local institutions and private actors shape markets themselves, with PSI providing technical assistance, coordination, and facilitation. Underpinning our work is PSI’s expertise in user-centered design, social marketing, social franchising, behavior change communication, and supporting the engagement and capacity development of the private sector to deliver to customers products and services that they want to use.

PSI seeks a Deputy Project Director for an anticipated 5-year USAID-funded Indonesia Urban WASH Market (IUWASH). The project aims to advance Indonesia’s development goals in growing local markets for WASH products and services in the country’s vulnerable urban areas. The Deputy Project Director will lead activities to enhance the viability of WASH businesses and increase the availability of affordable, desirable WASH products and services to underserved market segments.

Support alignment of the project with PSI’s global strategic priorities, the project’s priorities, and as well as national and regional priorities, strategies, policies, and interventions.
