The Deputy Director of Health Systems Leadership Development (Deputy Director), Community Health Academy (Academy), is a visionary, high-performing leader who provides support for the design and management the Academy’s Health Systems Leadership Development program.
Community Health Worker (CHW) programs are critical for attaining Universal Health Coverage and could save 30 million lives by 2030. However, in order to be successfully scaled and sustained, CHW Programs must be effectively integrated into national health systems with strong institutional capacity. These systems are complex and dynamic, and health systems leaders must be able to navigate this complexity as they design, manage, and strengthen CHW programs. This requires that leaders not only have strong proficiency in program components related to each of the health system building blocks, but also have the ability to anticipate and solve problems that cut across different areas of the system. This program aims to accompany and assist health systems leaders as they work to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of large-scale, government-led CHW programs that are integrated within their health systems. The program will enroll and train at least 15,000 community health leaders – current and next-generation policymakers, managers, supervisors – within 4 years.
