Maisha Meds Data Analyst Jobs in Kenya

Maisha Meds Data Analyst Jobs in Kenya


Job Details

  • At Maisha Meds, we believe all patients have a right to appropriate and effective healthcare.

  • Across sub-Saharan Africa, private sector pharmacies play a major role in providing primary care, yet they remain largely separate from and unrecognized by the health system, lacking the technology, data, and support to make the highest quality healthcare widely accessible.

  • Maisha Meds develops technology solutions that leverage the pharmacy point of sale to increase visibility up and down medication supply chains and ensure evidence-based care.

  • Better information and insight enables pharmacies, suppliers, and medication manufacturers to track inventories, forecast drug demand, purchase quality medicines, and provide patient follow-up and advice.

    About the Role

  • Currently Maisha Meds is collecting large quantities of data that can help to inform decision makers on how to improve access to medicine in East Africa.

  • We present analyses such as price and quality of antimalarials sold in Kenya, or changes in medication availability as a result of COVID-19.

  • The organisation is looking for an enthusiastic data analyst to help answer these types of questions by conducting analyses, creating dashboards, and cleaning data.

  • This role is a good growth opportunity for either an analyst seeking to move into the global health field, or someone with a pharmaceutical or healthcare background looking to hone their analytics skills.
