Results for Development (R4D) is a global nonprofit organization working with partners in more than 55 countries to find new ways to help people escape poverty and reach their full potential. We apply fresh thinking and rigor to emerging and stubborn development challenges—particularly within the fields of health, education and governance—and we pioneer and advance creative, high-impact solutions. We do this by conducting analysis that helps to inform and influence decision-makers; building platforms and networks that connect people and ideas; by providing direct support to local change agents; and combining these approaches to deliver meaningful and lasting results.
R4D established the Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI) in mid-2009 to promote programs, policies and practices that make quality health care more affordable and accessible to the world’s poor. Operated through a global network of partners, CHMI maintains a publicly accessible global knowledge platform (found online at HealthMarketInnovations.org) with details on more than 1,300 innovative health enterprises, non-profits, policies, and public-private partnerships in low- and middle-income countries. CHMI uses the following approach:
- IDENTIFY: We provide comprehensive, up‐to‐date information about innovative programs and policies.
- ANALYZE: We identify promising practices that can be scaled-up or adapted in other countries.
- CONNECT: We connect people implementing, funding, and studying innovative programs to translate good practices and encourage innovative programs to scale.
R4D is seeking an enthusiastic and energetic Program Associate (PA) to join the Innovations portfolio to support day-to-day operations of CHMI and the Health System Hub. R4D is also seeking a Senior Program Officer (SPO) to provide thought leadership and people, project, and relationship management for the Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI), aimed at accelerating innovative health initiatives worldwide and aspiring to improve access, quality, and affordability of health care for the poor.
