Description de l’offre
Program Assistant, Global Health Programs
PATH is a global organization that works to accelerate health equity by bringing together public institutions, businesses, social enterprises, and investors to solve the world’s most pressing health challenges. With expertise in science, health, finance, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales innovative solutions—including vaccines, drugs, devices, diagnostics, and approaches to strengthening health systems worldwide.
About TIMCI: Tools for Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (TIMCI) is a global effort led by PATH to accelerate availability, adoption and scale-up of tools to identify severe illness and decrease mortality in children under five years of age. PATH and its primary partner, the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH), will implement a four-year project funded by Unitaid. TIMCI has two major goals that both seek to improve detection of severe disease in children under five: 1) to improve healthcare workers’ ability to diagnose severe disease by equipping them with pulse oximeters (POX) and electronic decision support tools; and 2) to accelerate the development and market entry of non-invasive devices that augment the features of a standard POX with one or more additional vital sign measurements. This high profile and potentially high impact project began in July 2019 and will take place in five countries: Kenya, Myanmar, Senegal, Tanzania, and the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
About ADP: The Access Delivery Partnership project is a collaboration between the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Special Program for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) and PATH. Working across a range of sectors and disciplines, ADP partners draw on their unique areas of expertise to help countries strengthen health systems and achieve health for all. ADP is funded by the Government of Japan and works in several focus countries including Ghana, India, Indonesia, Malawi, Senegal, Tanzania and Thailand.
