Location: Boston, Massachusetts

Job Description:

Directed by Dr. Gene Bukhman, the Center for Integration Science in Global Health Equity develops, implements, and evaluates integrated care delivery models to address severe, chronic noncommunicable diseases in highly constrained health systems. The most prominent of those models is PEN-Plus, a proven integrated healthcare delivery strategy for delivering complex care to people living with such conditions as type 1 diabetes, sickle cell disease, and rheumatic and congenital heart disease in rural sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

The Center for Integration Science is a collaboration of Brigham and Women's Hospital, the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and Partners In Health. The Center for Integration Science is also the World Health Organization's Collaborating Center for Integration Science and Service Delivery. It further serves as one of two co-secretariats for the 22-country NCDI Poverty Network, as well as its advocacy initiative, the PEN-Plus Partnership, which unites a range of leading health organizations internationally, including the Africa Centres for Disease Control, the American Heart Association, the American Society of Hematology, the Helmsley Charitable Trust, JDRF International, Partners In Health, UNICEF, and the World Health Organization Regional Office for Africa.

To accomplish its ambitious mission, the Center for Integration Science provides technical, policy, advocacy, and financing support for national NCDI poverty commissions in Network countries as they progress through a four-phase theory of change. This theory of change starts with situation analysis and ultimately leads to the implementation of PEN-Plus at a national scale.
