Job Description:

Who we are
D-tree International is a global digital health organization dedicated to ensuring that everyone has access to high-quality primary healthcare in underserved areas. We do this by working with governments to design, build and deploy digital tools for frontline health workers that improve their ability to deliver high-quality, evidence-based care. D-tree engages with governments to develop a shared vision for the potential of digital health, demonstrates the effectiveness of digital systems to improve health outcomes, and accompanies governments to scale these digital systems nationally and institutionalize them within their broader health systems.
For over 15 years, D-tree has worked in countries throughout sub-Saharan Africa with governments and NGO partners on a wide range of digital health programs focused on improving the quality of healthcare delivery. In Zambia and Malawi, we have worked to strengthen the quality of HIV service delivery using digital tools on USAID and PEPFAR-funded programs. In Tanzania, we are working with the MOH and local partners to develop a digitally enabled primary health care program to strengthen the quality of maternal, child and adolescent care. In Zanzibar, D-tree has worked hand-in-hand with the MOH to bring the government’s first national digital community health program to national scale, supporting every household in Zanzibar.
As our portfolio of digital health programs continues to grow, we have an opportunity to expand our engagement in Zambia to support HIV service delivery and prevention at the community level and build relationships with the national government to support the broader primary health system. This is an exciting opportunity to help expand D-tree’s work, establish a D-tree office in Zambia, and implement government-aligned digital health systems to improve access to quality healthcare in Zambia.
