Living Goods (LG) aims to improve the lives of tens of millions of underserved people by transforming community health services across the developing world. We have developed a model that has been independently proven to reduce child mortality by 26%. We continue to realise these results at a net cost of less than $2 per person per year. Our goal now is to achieve multi-national scale and to truly create systemic change. It is clear that success will require us to do more than grow our operations. We must also scale through large, strategic partnerships with NGOs and with government.

LG presently works with many of the world’s leading visionary organizations across the corporate, social and government sectors. Current and former partners include BRAC, Care International, the Clinton Foundation, Marie Stopes, and PSI. We seek to build on this success and in a big way particularly working more closely with Governments.

The Senior Advisor, together with other members of our Partnerships team, will pioneer, develop and manage many of these partnerships with a particular focus on governments and policy development. This is an exciting new opportunity and one that is squarely positioned both at the heart of Living Goods’ strategy, and at the leading edge of our drive towards transformative change.
