Muso is a global health organization committed to universal health care. We build health systems to save lives by reaching patients faster. To make this happen, we’ve devoted the past decade designing, building, testing, and improving on our proactive healthcare model. Communities Muso serves have achieved child mortality rates lower than any country in Africa, according to a 2018 BMJ Global Health study.
We currently provide direct service health care for 315,000 people in Mali, while supporting the Malian Ministry of Health as they work toward a scale up of Community Health Worker-led health care to 3.5 million people nationally.
We’ve now seen the urgent need for Muso to serve both within and beyond Mali’s borders. The global crises of maternal and child mortality are solvable, everywhere.
Building upon the extraordinary potential of proactive care, Muso is now preparing for global growth. This will include expansion to new countries, intensive technical assistance (TA), and world-class research designed to change global policy and practice. Through these efforts, we aim to serve the global effort for universal health care, maternal health, and child survival. The World Bank, the UN MDG Health Alliance, and USAID have all featured Muso’s work as a global best practice.
Muso has designed our work and research to directly inform and support policy makers and implementers around the world to build high-impact, proactive community health systems. In recent years, requests from governments and NGOs for Muso’s partnership and technical assistance have accelerated.
The Global Partnerships Manager will help craft and communicate Muso’s ambitious plans for health care delivery, research, and advocacy across the global community. To drive forward Muso’s next stage of growth, the Global Partnerships Manager will conduct a thorough landscape analysis of candidate countries for TA partnership or direct service expansion, help select the next growth country where we will pursue partnership for national health system transformation, and build relationships with global institutional partners to bring proactive care delivery and world-class research to new government and NGO partners.
The Global Partnerships Manager will play an important role in growing Muso’s reach, advocacy, and partnerships.
This position reports to the Director of Development & Communications, and will work closely with the CEO and other organizational leaders. This position is based in Muso’s San Francisco office, Bamako office, or remotely, with frequent travel to San Francisco and globally.
