Nala Foundation Finance and Administrative Assistant Jobs in Ethiopia

About Nala

  • NALA works to eliminate Neglected Tropical Diseases in Ethiopia, specifically hygiene-related diseases that are common in areas with limited access to clean water and sanitation.

  • NALA’s disease prevention model complements drug distribution campaigns with targeted health education, community mobilization, and improvements to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) infrastructure. NALA’s intervention models empower communities to take the lead in promoting behavioral change and in improving WASH; increasing sustainability beyond the end of the different projects. In addition, NALA’s locally-based solutions have resulted in a measurable reduction in the prevalence of the disease in our project areas.

  • As a result of NALA's successful work, the Ministry of Health invited NALA to provide technical assistance to the National NTD Control Program, as well as coordination support to regional-level governments. The Ministry also requested special attention and implementation support for disease “hot spots,” areas where disease burden is especially high.
