Global Health Corps Fellow, Knowledge Management Officer, Living Goods – Kampala, Uganda

Role Overview
Living Goods is scaling up rapidly in Uganda. With growth comes the need to continuously work with the government to achieve the greatest possible impact. We believe that building broader coalitions with Ministry of Health and Partners is a key driver of our sustainability. Our partnership with the Ministry of Health and local communities improves access to quality services and curbs preventable child and maternal deaths. We believe that promoting solutions driven by local communities can enrich the quality of health systems and ultimately move Uganda toward its vision of “A Transformed Ugandan Society from a Peasant to a Modern and Prosperous Country within 30 years.”
