Résumé du rôle


More than five million children die every year and more than half the world’s population lives without access to essential health care. To take on these enormous injustices, Muso is growing rapidly. 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 Head of Institutional Partnerships is responsible, with the support and approval of the Chief Partnerships Officer, for articulating and delivering on Muso’s institutional funding strategy to cultivate and secure six, seven and eight- figure grants from institutional donors.
