Living Goods (LG) aims to improve the lives of tens of millions of underserved people by transforming community health services across the developing world. We have developed a model that has been independently proven to reduce child mortality by 27%. We continue to realize these results at a net cost of less than $2 per person per year. Our goal now is to achieve multi-national scale and to truly create systemic change that allows long-term sustainable financing of community health. It is clear that success will require us to do more than grow our operations. We must also scale through large, strategic partnerships with government and NGO partners. This is where you come in!
LG has an exciting opportunity for an innovative and dynamic leader to join our team in the new role of Advisor, Health Financing. This role is critical in our efforts to scale our impact and achieve our mission, by securing increased funding for community health.
Together with our Advocacy & Government Relations and Business Development teams, the Advisor, Health Financing will work to pioneer, develop and support secure additional funding for community health within county governments. With increased funding, the Advisor will be required to support mechanisms that can lead to subcontracting of part or whole community programming to Living Goods within the counties. The work will involve nurturing relationships with county governments, identifying possible funding opportunities and support securing budget commitments from the county government budgets. In later stages, progress to managing the financing and contracting aspects of active partnerships with the governments. This is an exciting new opportunity and one that is squarely positioned both at the heart of Living Goods’ strategy to scale through partnerships with government and our drive towards transformative change.
The ideal candidate is an accomplished, results-focused professional with a vision and entrepreneurial spirit.
