We are recruiting a number of positions for the Community Health Academy, a new initiative at Last Mile Health which leverages digital technology to train, empower, and connect community health workers and health system leaders around the world. 

The Academy will feature a two-pronged learning platform – one supporting CHWs and the other supporting health systems leaders to build their capacity to design and manage effective national CHW programs. We aim to train over 30,000 community health workers and leaders by 2021 to serve millions of people.

However we can’t accelerate progress towards this exciting vision without assembling a strong team. Successful candidates should be passionate about working at the intersection of health, education, and technology, highly driven, and comfortable working in a startup environment.
