Do you want your work to matter? Do you want to use your skills to make a difference, not just a living? Do you want to improve millions of lives, including your own?
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!
Three years ago Ebola swept through Sierra Leone, infecting 14,000 people and killing 4,000. Community health workers played a vital role in halting the outbreak by identifying people with symptoms and educating families on infection prevention. The Ministry of Health & Sanitation has since adopted policies to strengthen community health even more. We want to join them in this quest.
Our tech team will provide mHealth tools to improve data collection and community health worker effectiveness. Our procurement staff will help Ministry of Health staff develop systems to ensure that high quality products and medicines are in stock. Our health teams will conduct management and continued health education seminars.
