Field Coordinators job at Health Access Connect

About the Organization

Kevin Gibbons and Carolyne Ariokot started Health Access Connect based on the need for anti-retroviral treatment (ART) and other health services that they witnessed in fishing villages on Lake Victoria. Many people fail to get health services because it’s too expensive and difficult to travel to the nearest facility. We said, “There must be a way to address this problem!” HAC came from that initial need that we learned from the communities, and our programs are all designed to serve our mission to link Ugandans living in remote areas with healthcare resources.

Job Description

The Field Coordinator will work with HAC staff and partners to conduct community organizing activities, expand work to new villages, collect relevant data, and network with relevant officials.
