Vacancy: M-Health Lab Field Coordinator
About the M-health Lab: The Lab is our think-and-do tank. A space to micro-simulate projects, extract data, evaluate projects and conduct surveys.
Simply, this is where we test systems and behaviors that cannot be implemented without being examined in detail. As an example we have trained both clinics and beneficiaries on the use of mobile payment solutions.
In addition, we have conducted extensive surveys on user experiences using mobile payment systems for health in many different settings, we have carried out surveys on the effects on donor incentives on health care access and health insurance.
The Lab designs tests, trains participants and conducts quantitative and qualitative data collection. Currently we have around 20 different tests ideas for a number of different partners.
In order to -together with the team- carry out all these tests in well organized and planned manner and meet different competing deadlines, we are currently looking for two individuals to fill the Lab Field coordinator positions.
