Full Time
The Kaizen Company is seeking candidates to work on USAID Global Health Security (GHS) programs.

GHS embraces the One Health approach, recognizing the critical role that wildlife, livestock, other domestic animals, and environment play in emerging zoonotic diseases with pandemic and antimicrobial resistance potential. Identifying and minimizing zoonotic disease risks at their source in animals and a comprehensive approach to antimicrobial resistance that includes the human, livestock, agriculture, and environment sectors are essential components of USAID’s contribution to GHS.
