Living Goods works to reinvent how we improve the lives of the under-served. We think big, but operate lean and nimble. We believe community health is critical to deliver universal health coverage and that community health workers are essential because they bring health services to people’s doorsteps.
We also help governments transform community health through mobile phones. Using the disruptive power of mobile technology, we’ve equipped and deployed 7,500 community health workers across Africa. These community health workers treat common illnesses like pneumonia, diarrhea, and malaria focusing on children and mothers. They also provide primary healthcare to 6 million people at a fraction of the cost of doctors and nurses. And they’ve reduced child mortality by 27 percent.
The secret to our success is a winning team. One that enables people to bring their ideas and creativity to work every day. If you work well in a dynamic collaborative culture, set high standards, meet challenges with determination and a have a sense of humor, come work for Living Goods!
Senior Manager, Digital Health Partnerships
Digital health is transforming the face of healthcare. All around the globe, access to a mobile phone can mean the difference between life and death. Mobile phones allow families to call for medical help in emergencies. They help rural pharmacists locate lifesaving drugs during stockouts. And they enable health workers to track disease outbreaks, so they can respond quickly and prevent disease from spreading.
At Living Goods, every community health worker we work with gets a smartphone on day one. Using our SmartHealth app, community health workers register households, track maternal health, monitor infant growth, and diagnose and treat common childhood ailments like pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria. Living Goods’-supported supervisors also use smartphones to monitor the performance and target their supervision of community health workers. And our Ministry of Health partners use the data collected by these community health workers and supervisors to measure results and recommend program improvements.
mHealth is at the heart of how we drive impact, enabling Living Goods and government to gather reliable data, provide consistent and accurate diagnoses, and deliver high-quality, cost-effective community health care. However, we do not think that any single technology is the solution for all contexts. Instead we want to support partners and governments identify the right solution for them among the growing number of platforms targeted at CHWs.
Although this role will sit in LGs Global Technology Team, it will work closely with the Community Health Strengthening Team (CHST) Team. CHST is a group of smart and innovative professionals who seek to transform community healthcare across the developing world. They help large-scale implementing partners and Ministries of Health design policies, develop innovative ways to finance healthcare, and co-design programs to deliver high impact, low-cost community healthcare.
Key to achieving this will be to get governments to adopt digital health solutions that will enable these Governments to more efficiently and effectively manage their community health programs. That’s where you come in. As Senior Manager for Digital Health Partnerships, you will work with the rest of the CHST to identify and pursue opportunities to support government in existing and potential expansion countries, and, to design context-appropriate solutions and lead implementation of the same.
