Strategy Analyst--Guinea

Integrate Health

About the organization

Integrate Health (IH) is a rapidly growing global health organization working to serve communities in West Africa and New York. We believe that access to healthcare is a human right, and we are committed to making this a reality in the countries in which we work. IH works alongside governments and the local community to implement and study an integrated approach to strengthening primary healthcare delivery in order to achieve universal health coverage. By integrating professional Community Health Workers with improved care in public clinics, this approach creates a patient-centered health system that is accountable to the community and dramatically reduces mortality in severely resource-limited settings. Over the past five years, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, IH has expanded its proven approach to serve nearly 200,000 people across northern Togo. IH is now posed to effectively support the government to leverage this success to ensure high-quality primary healthcare.
