The person hired for this position will recruit, inspire, educate, and engage individuals and organizations in global health solutions that address extreme poverty.

We are committed to ending preventable child deaths through child and maternal health interventions and to ending child malnutrition that negatively impacts the brain and physical development of over 165 million children under age 5, or about 25% of all children in this age group. We are also committed to stopping diseases of poverty like AIDS, TB, malaria, pneumonia, rotavirus from killing children and adults. Ultimately, we are committed to ending extreme poverty by 2030.

  2. Organize issue and advocacy workshops in the target communities focused on global health, and how to engage the media and the offices of elected officials around these issues. Support interested parties to learn the skills necessary to take actions that bring attention to global health policy solutions that will improve lives and reduce poverty.
  3. Educate individuals and organizations on the problems and solutions of poverty, particularly in the area of global health, train them in advocacy skills, and inspire them about the difference they can make as a part of REF/RESULTS. Support the creation of new REF/RESULTS chapters.
  4. Cultivate and develop national partnerships that will build REF/RESULTS pipeline of new global health activists.
  5. Present and/or table at events with a high potential for building REF/RESULTS pipeline of new global health activists. Also recruit, support, and cultivate REF/RESULTS activists in the REAL Change Fellowship program to organize community outreach events around global health and start new chapters.
