Global Health Advisor

Reports to: Global Director Program Strategy & Excellence
Location: Nairobi, Kenya; Kampala, Uganda

Introduction:

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 endeavours to improve access to essential healthcare services in underserved regions, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. We believe community health is critical to deliver Universal Health Coverage and that community health workers (CHWs) are essential, because they bring health services to people’s doorsteps. But to truly make an impact, CHWs need to be digitally empowered, equipped with treatments, effectively supervised, and compensated.

We also help governments transform their community health systems and workforces. We have transformed ability of community health workers to have a lifesaving impact across Africa. These community health workers educate, assess, treat, and refer for common illnesses like pneumonia, diarrhea, and malaria that affect children under 5, they help ensure children get immunized on time, and they support women through their pregnancies and with family planning. They also provide primary healthcare to millions of people at a fraction of the cost of doctors and nurses.

At Living Goods, you will have the chance to apply your ideas and creativity at work every day.

Living Goods is a non-profit organization operating in Uganda, Kenya, and Myanmar. Its goal is to build a sustainable distribution platform for products designed to fight poverty and disease in the developing world. Living Goods operates networks of independent entrepreneurs who make a living by selling medicines and products to poor people that can help improve their health, wealth, and productivity. Living Goods borrows from successful direct selling models like Avon Products, Amway and Tupperware. The project aims to be fully self-funded at scale.

Living Goods was founded by Chuck Slaughter in 2007

Living Goods focuses on three prevailing problems with health systems in the developing world: 1) the shortage of frontline health workers, 2) the inadequate distribution of basic health products in both the public and private sectors, and 3) the failure of innovations like clean cookstoves and solar lamps to reach scale. It is largely recognized that each of these problems increases in severity at the “last mile” where the need is greatest.

Using a double bottom line business approach, Living Goods aims to:

  • Reduce child mortality by at least 15%
  • Save poor families 20% on basic health products and daily necessities
  • Create incomes for thousands of entrepreneurs
  • Increase access to innovations
  • Scale impact via global replication of the Living Goods direct-selling model
