PATH is a global nonprofit dedicated to achieving health equity. With more than 40 years of experience forging multisector partnerships, and with expertise in science, economics, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales up innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing health challenges.
The Center of Digital and Data Excellence (CoDE) at PATH works with government ministries of health, the private sector, and donors to strengthen the use of digital technologies and data for improved health services. Digital Square is one of CoDE’s flagship global initiatives. It is PATH-led and funded by multiple donors, including USAID and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to advance digitally enabled health services to help close the health equity gap. Conceived from the lessons of the inefficiencies and redundancies of prior investments in digital technologies for international development, Digital Square works with ministries of health to align adaptable, interoperable digital technologies with local health needs and brings partners together to improve how the global community designs, uses, and pays for digital health tools and approaches.
PATH is currently recruiting for a Deputy Director, Anglophone Africa Programs for its Digital Square team. The Deputy Director will play a key supporting role for a portfolio of Digital Square’s digital health implementation activities in Anglophone Africa. S/he will ensure donor coordination, partner alignment, and staff direction during the implementation of activities. The Deputy Director will work closely with the Regional Director for Anglophone Africa and the Managing Director of Digital Square to carry out strategic visioning for the expansion of Digital Square’s implementation efforts across the continent of Africa.
