Job Description

This is an onsite position in Honolulu, HI


The CDC Foundation helps the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) save and improve lives by unleashing the power of collaboration between CDC, philanthropies, corporations, organizations and individuals to protect the health, safety and security of America and the world. The CDC Foundation is the sole entity authorized by Congress to mobilize philanthropic partners and private-sector resources to support CDC’s critical health protection mission. Since 1995, the CDC Foundation has launched approximately 1,000 programs and has served as a strategic partner to CDC during public health emergencies. This is an outstanding opportunity to work with the nation’s lead agency charged with protecting the public’s health.



In response to the demand for repatriation of our citizens, American Samoa Government is initiating a repatriation program to bring residents stranded in the U.S. mainland back home. The goals of the program are to ensure safe travel of the stranded residents from US to American Samoa and to reduce the risk of SARS CoV-2 entry and transmission within the territory. Due to limitations in quarantine and testing capacity in American Samoa, residents will be subject to quarantine and testing procedures and processes prior to departing Honolulu.


Many residents who are stranded in Hawaii and the U.S. mainland departed American Samoa primarily for scheduled medical specialty care. Because residents in quarantine will most likely have a previous medical history, this position is key in ensuring the health, comfort, and safety of the quarantine population. This individual will work with the Quarantine Facility Nurse Manager to coordinate with the Hotel Management Staff and other collaborative entities (e.g. security, transport, meals, etc). This individual will work with a team to ensure that the American Samoa residents remain in quarantine as comfortable as possible.


The Logistics Technician is also assigned to work with the Quarantine Facility Nurse’s Assistant under the direction of the Quarantine Facility Nurse Manager. The Logistics Technician must be able to endure long hours in full personal protective equipment (PPE).
