Global Health

Our dedicated, global workforce supports USAID’s international development and humanitarian assistance, and our defense customers, to address a variety of global health challenges related to eradicating infectious diseases; nutrition; maternal and child health; sanitation and hygiene; HIV/AIDS; emergency response (including COVID-19 and 24/7 support); environmental health; foreign medical infrastructure; and the effective use of data analytics in health program design and implementation. As a result, our team bolsters technical leadership, accelerates innovation, and increases science and technology capabilities on a variety of global health program initiatives.

USAID Global Health Technical Professionals Program Support

Credence supports the USAID Global Health (GH) Bureau’s commitment to improving global health outcomes in communities around the world by providing technical professionals at all career stages for posts both in Washington, D.C. and abroad. Our global health professionals augment the Agency’s programs addressing its three strategic priorities, including preventing child and maternal deaths, controlling the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and combating infectious diseases. Our global health professionals help improve the technical abilities of USAID offices, teams, and working groups by bolstering technical leadership, accelerating innovation, increasing science and technology capabilities, and providing acquisition and additional services on a variety of global health program initiatives for USAID’s humanitarian assistance response and international development initiatives.

USAID Global Health Training, Advisory, and Support Contract (GHTASC)

Credence supports the Bureau for Global health (GH) in leading the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID’s) global health programming and outbreak response with a focus on preventing child and maternal deaths, controlling the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and combating infectious diseases. GH had identified institutional support and professional development reform as a priority to further USAID’s Transformation Agenda and GH’s Transformation Plan that includes the goals of developing agile workforce management structures and investing in a more nimble and diverse workforce. Team Credence manages the GHTASC project, which promotes effective global health programming and advances GH’s mission through strategic workforce learning and development.

USAID Ebola Response and Recovery Support Program

As part of the response to the West Africa Ebola outbreak, Credence supported USAID by playing an integral role in the response and recovery efforts of the disease in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. Our team led the health communications and outreach efforts between USAID HQ, its Missions, and other global health donors and implementers. To aid the recovery effort, Credence and USAID promoted continued collaboration and coordination among donors by providing detailed activities and identifying opportunities to leverage donor resources. Our experts were on the front lines of the recovery effort, collecting monitoring and evaluating health system surveillance data in all three countries.
