ThinkWell is an emerging health systems development organization that is currently in a major growth phase. While our core area of work is health financing, we take a health systems approach that includes human resources for health, health information systems, private sector engagement, and research and evaluation. As part of the USAID Bangladesh Advancing Universal Health Care (AUHC) project, we are looking for a Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning (MERL) Coordinator. The AUHC project will transition the management of 399 Surjer Hashi Network (SHN) clinics that are currently being managed by 25 NGOs to a newly formed social enterprise. To prepare for this transition, and through-out the life of the project, there are assessments, research studies and other activities that will generate a significant amount of data and information. This data will be used to inform this transition as well as guide SHN programmatically. MERL Coordinator position is a full-time position based in Bangladesh AUHC project offices in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Within the AUHC project, ThinkWell leads the incubator unit that provides strategic and technical support to the newly established Surjer Hashi (Smiling Sun) Network (SHN), a sustainable pro-poor social enterprise. The Strategic Partnership Advisor is responsible for strategic alliances and partnerships to offer added value services to the clients of SHN and accountable for business growth of SHN through a vibrant network. The candidate will report to the Strategic Finance Director. (S)he will work with different teams across the project to develop and promote new revenue streams and attract additional resources by developing partnerships with market actors in delivering health services and related products.
