PATH is an international organization that drives transformative innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations—that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.
Data for Fever Management (DFM) 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. DFM 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.
PATH is seeking a Director to lead the fast-paced, complex, and high profile four-year DFM project, which begins in July 2019 and will take place in five countries: Senegal, Kenya, Tanzania, Myanmar, and the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The Director will bring a passion for child health, market shaping, evidence-generation, and project implementation in low resource settings. The Director will report to the Seattle-based Director of Market Dynamics and will provide overall project leadership and management, working closely with a strong team that has been heavily involved in project conception and refinement in close collaboration with the donor.
Must have legal authorization to work in the United States.
