Job Opening: D-tree International is Hiring a Program Director in Zanzibar

D-tree International is hiring! We have an exciting opportunity for a full-time Program Director, based in Stone Town, Zanzibar.

D-tree International is a mission-driven digital global health organization committed to transforming health systems and improving health outcomes in low and middle-income countries by integrating innovative and cutting-edge digital technology solutions into health systems. For nearly 15 years, D-tree has been a pioneer in the field of digital health and has supported health workers serving over 5 million families in 16 countries globally.

Since 2011, D-tree has partnered with the Zanzibar Ministry of Health to implement an innovative digital health program supporting Community Health Volunteers to provide health services within their communities. This program has consistently demonstrated improved health outcomes, a strengthened community health system, and increased use of data for decision-making.
