ATIA recruits 01 Mutual health program manager

Position based in Dhaka, BANGLADESH


ATIA is a French association. It intervenes in India, Madagascar, Mozambique, Burkina Faso and Bangladesh to improve the access of vulnerable families to employment, vocational training, health, education and existing social services.

ATIA team has more than 30 years of experience in the development of mutual health insurance. In 2019, ATIA started a new mutual health insurance program for vulnerable families in Bashantek slum, in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. This launch followed a feasibility study conducted in 2018. ATIA collaborates with the NGO Eau et Vie, which operates in Bashantek to provide access to drinking water for the inhabitants.

2019 was a preparation year: the team was recruited and trained, the procedures were defined, the tools were designed, the software was configured, etc. The promotion for the health mutual insurance started in October 2019 and the enrolments began in January 2020.  This launch was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic which led us to adapt the services offered and the activities from October 2020.

The team is composed of a Program Manager, Project Manager pair to the PM, a medical advisor, an Administrative and Financial Manager and community facilitators.

ATIA is looking for a person to replace the current Program Manager in January 2021, in order to continue the development of the mutual health insurance for the Bashantek community but also for other groups of beneficiaries.

  • Defining, in collaboration with ATIA area manager, the strategy for an efficient and sustainable deployment of the health mutual insurance;
