    of addressing persistent challenges. It’s going to be your job to promote
    a model of health programming that is higher quality and more relevant,
    human, and impactful specifically because it has been designed for and
    with the end-user: the patient. You are not afraid to challenge the status

    outside the health sector to drive innovation, ensure that the patient is
    always our “North Star”, and that our quality is always a cut above the
  • You understand how to continually improve the household-to-hospital
    continuum of care in humanitarian settings, as well as ensure the design
    and delivery of person-centered health programs. Much of your day will be
    spent engaging with our country health teams virtually or in person to
    collaborate on health and nutrition program design, developing and
    iterating systems to improve the quality of health service delivery, and
    mentoring staff to learn and grow both technically as well as in
    leadership skills.
  • You value the importance of context and like being on the go. You
    will spend a lot of time in our country offices and field sites working
