We are a motivated, dedicated and diverse team who are seeking talented and motivated individuals to fill this new role. Under the direction of the Impact Measurement Manager and working closely with the Global Health Innovation team and GCC-supported innovators, the Impact Measurement Associate will assess the potential health impacts of GGC-supported innovations, to build impact models that inform investments decisions and optimize the numbers of lives improved and lives saved through GCC’s investments.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Critically appraise the innovation’s evidence of health impact to assess the strength of the evidence, and remaining gaps and limitations of the evidence
  • Assess an innovation’s potential pathways to scale, including plans for further scaling after the GCC funding period
  • Compare the evidence of health outcomes to similar/comparable interventions, through secondary research and consultation with experts in relevant sectors

  • Support the Global Health Innovations team to communicate relevant information about an innovation’s health impact to the Investment Committee
  • Generate reports in GCC’s data management system and analyze data to support the creation of knowledge products (reports, presentations, etc.) for various audiences
  • Support the innovations to identify measurable health outcomes that align with GCC’s thresholds and definitions for lives improved and saved
  • Identify critical gaps in the evidence of health outcomes, and in the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) activities to determine when additional M&E support is needed through external experts and advisors
  • Support innovators on monitoring and evaluation (M&E) practices and methods and on reporting (e.g. reviewing innovators’ M&E plans, providing feedback on results)

Job Requirements:

  • Demonstrated knowledge of global health or international development solutions
