Job Summary

Living Goods works to reinvent how we improve the lives of the under-served. We think big, but operate lean and nimble. We train community health workers to bring life-saving health services and products to people’s doorsteps. Services like prenatal assessments and well baby visits. Products like medicines, fortified foods, and modern contraceptives.

We also transform community health through mobile phones. We teach community health workers how to assess maternal and child health with mobile phone apps and to treat common illnesses like pneumonia, malaria, and diarrhea. We also create predictive algorithms to make the best use of their time. And we test new tools like paperless referrals to clinics and biosensors to monitor infant and child growth.


Responsibilities

Your Charge

  1. Our community health workers are natural connectors in their communities.  They know the power of immunizations to prevent childhood deaths and family planning to prevent unplanned pregnancies.  They also have trusting relationships with families necessary to increase vaccine and contraceptive coverage.
  2. To match our community health workers as connectors in the community, we’re looking for a Program Manager to serve as the connector to donors.  A passionate public health professional with a track record managing field-based public health programs.  Knowledge of innovative ways to increase demand and coverage of immunizations and contraceptives.  The ability to collaboratively manage projects from beginning to end.  And the people skills to maintain strong relationships with external donors.
