Description

Global Senior Analyst

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.

The Opportunity

Examples include: costing and cost-effectiveness analyses, analyzing baseline household survey for a new country, analyzing programmatic data across our countries to build evidence of which CHW supervision strategies are most effective, using GIS data to analyze the extent to which we reach households furthest from health facilities, or building a predictive analytics model to target the highest risk children in the areas we work.
