Position Title: Grants Analyst

The University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is a new kind of university focused on training the next  generation of global leaders in health care delivery. The university launched in Rwanda in September  2015 with its flagship degree program: the Master of Science in Global Health Delivery. Through an  academic experience uniquely rooted in the values of equity, students are empowered to both ease  suffering at the bedside and drive transformational, systemic changes to the health system.

UGHE is an initiative of Partners In Health (PIH), an internationally recognized non-profit organization  whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. In over nearly three  decades of operating alongside public sectors in countries around the world, PIH has developed a  model to deliver high quality health care to some of the world’s most marginalized communities.  Nowhere has this impact been more profound than in Rwanda, where Inshuti Mu Buzima—PIH’s  sister organization—and our government partners have driven innovation for a decade.

Members of the UGHE community are tenacious and resolute in our drive to attain social justice, make  common cause with those in need, listen to and learn from others, and operate with honesty and  humility as we uphold academic integrity and intellectual curiosity. The University of Global Health

Equity seeks individuals committed to these values to join the team.
