Zanzibar Project Manager

D-tree International harnesses the power of mobile technology to improve the quality of healthcare delivery by supporting health workers and their supervisors to provide better care to their clients. D-tree's partnership model focuses on supporting existing health systems and programs by collaborating with governments, funding agencies, and NGOs to support frontline health workers in communities and at health facilities. The starting point of the work is the development and delivery of electronic protocols on mobile devices that guide health workers by prompting them to ask specific questions and take appropriate action. D-tree has been working in Zanzibar since 2010 on projects focused on maternal and child health. In close collaboration with the Ministry of Health, D-tree has trained more than 300 health workers who serve more than 60% of the rural population as part of the Safer Deliveriesprogram. D-tree is currently scaling up this program throughout all of Zanzibar to support Community Health Workers to provide high quality care to pregnant women to encourage facility deliveries and postpartum follow up in order to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality.
The Zanzibar Project Manager will support all of D-tree’s work in Zanzibar, Tanzania. The Project Manager primarily manages the Safer Deliveries program, but also provides support to other D-tree initiatives and identifies areas for additional collaboration and funding. The position is based in Stone Town, Zanzibar with frequent travel to implementation field sites in Unguja and Pemba and occasional travel to Dar es Salaam.
We seek a candidate who is motivated, interested in health care and technology, open to innovative ideas, efficient, eager to work hard, and a team player. The position will require close coordination with multiple departments within the Ministry of Health, other implementing partners, donors and the D-tree team. One of the key components of our projects is working closely at the national and district level to ensure real government ownership of these projects is achieved. The Project Manager must be comfortable in multiple roles ranging from field-based coordination and hands-on field work to high-level partnership building.
