At Last Mile Health (LMH), we go as far as it take for our patients. Are you interested in playing a lead role in Last Mile Health’s work with the Ministry of Health’s Rivercess County Health Team (CHT) to sustainably institutionalize the National Community Health Assistant (CHA) Program? If so, you may be our next County Program Manager for Rivercess County.
As Last Mile Health’s clinical and programmatic lead for the county, the Program Manager, reporting to the County Manager, works closely with CHT stakeholders at the county and district levels to guide and manage implementation of community health programming, oversee monitoring and evaluation of program progress, lead quality assurance and improvement efforts, and guide interventions focused on achieving integration of community health programming into the broader primary health care system. In line with Last Mile Health’s Culture Code, the Program Manager plays a key role in leading data-driven decision-making to improve program performance, achieve quality, and ensure long-term sustainability of the National CHA Program through government ownership.
In addition to leading implementation of the core National CHA Program service delivery package, the Program Manager also works closely with the CHT to lead strategic oversight and management of innovation projects that aim to expand the scope and quality of services that CHAs and their supervisors provide. These innovations include but are not limited to interventions in the areas of family planning, nutrition, and immunization.
With technical support from Programs Team leadership, the Program Manager oversees joint implementation of the National CHA Program in partnership with the CHT. This includes management of and support to a network of CHAs and clinical supervisors who serve a population of more than 44,400 people in remote communities across the county’s six health districts.
