  1. Dear Sir/Madam,

    Having read vacancies offered by USAID in Jakarta, Indonesia, I hereby would like to express my interest to be the HIV/AIDS AND OTHER INFECTIOUS DISEASES SPECIALIST.

    This position is very challenging and I have more than 10 years having experiences in dealing with this problem, especially during my term as the Country Executive Director of the Indonesian Planned Parenthood Association, 1997-2003 and as commisionaire in the Indonesian Child Protection Commission, 2004-2008 as in charge in the Research & Development activities.

    I can confirm that this position will be matched with me and my background, and I look forward to joining the USAID support in solving HIV/AIDS AND OTHER INFECTIOUS DISEASES’s problem in this country.

    Thank you for attention and best regards.

    ZarfielTafal, MD, MPH
