About the organization
The new USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance—or BHA—leads and coordinates the U.S. Government's disaster assistance efforts overseas, reaching millions of people around the world with life-saving aid. BHA delivers humanitarian assistance to save lives and alleviate the suffering of people affected by disasters around the world. We also help the world's most vulnerable people prepare, recover, and transition from crisis toward prosperity and self-reliance.
BHA has hundreds of staff located in more than 45 countries and in its Washington, D.C. headquarters, including experts in food security, nutrition, water, health, shelter, logistics, agriculture, protection, and more. BHA staff are recruited through a number of hiring vehicles including PSC Contracts, Institutional Contractors, and USDA Forest Service Office of International Programs.
The Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) is committed to fostering an equitable and inclusive workplace with a diverse workforce. BHA encourages qualified candidates of all races/ethnicities, genders, cultural backgrounds, abilities, and socioeconomic statuses to apply.
To fulfill its mandate, and to effectively respond to disasters worldwide, BHA has established six regional offices in the following locations: San Jose, Costa Rica; Nairobi, Kenya; Dakar, Senegal; Pretoria, South Africa; Budapest, Hungary; and Bangkok, Thailand. BHA also has other, smaller sub-regional and program offices around the world.
The Office of Africa (OA) designs, provides, and assesses humanitarian assistance, including assistance related to responding to, recovering from, and reducing the risk of man-made and natural disasters, while linking with other USAID investments that build resilience. To achieve these objectives, humanitarian experts based overseas coordinate with local authorities and USAID Missions, while humanitarian experts based in Washington D.C. coordinate with USAID Regional and Pillar Bureaus. OA consists of five (5) geographic divisions: East Africa; Central Africa; Sudans; West Africa; and Southern Africa. to be continued on application website
