The Researcher, Health Investment & Policy (HIP), will have primary responsibility for generating documentation and assembling evidence for exemplar community health worker programs and community health systems, as well as engagement with external stakeholders who contribute to this evidence base and community of practice.
The Researcher’s primary responsibility will be to undertake primary and secondary research in selected countries to synthesize positive deviant characteristics and determinants of program success with appropriate granularity to improve investment and financing decisions.
The current project approach is to (1) develop a framework to identify exemplar community health programs, (2) apply that framework to available data on current programs, and (3) develop a suite of case-study materials for 4-5 identified programs. As needed, the Researcher will also support related work streams, such as evidence packaging, dissemination, and advocacy projects related to community health.
