Summary 

The Field Coordinator will work with HAC staff and partners to conduct community organizing activities, expand work to new villages, collect relevant data, and network with relevant officials. 


Background 

The mission of Health Access Connect is to link remote communities to healthcare. HAC currently pursues this mission through four programs: 

1. Medicycles: We help remote communities to bring government health workers and their medicines to their villages on a monthly basis. In these outreach clinics health workers give HIV testing, anti-retroviral treatment, immunizations, perinatal services, family planning, and many other services available in rural health centres. 

2. Technical Advising: We collaborate with Africa Resource Centre (ARC) and the Uganda Ministry of Health to teach and empower PEPFAR implementing partner (IP) organizations to implement alternative drug distribution point models in an effort to a) improve a) antiretroviral therapy (ART) and general treatment health service provision and 

b) decongest health facilities. 

3. Treat & Teach: We improve access to family planning in the communities of Masaka and Kalangala districts by 

a) providing low-density high-frequency certificate training to health workers, 

b) setting up outreach clinics in remote communities, c) generating demand by collaborating with community health workers (VHTs), and d) reducing commodity stock outs by providing buffer stocks and improving commodity tracking at partner health facilities.

4. Digitalisation of the Health Commodities Supply Chain: In partnership with Signalytic, we are improving the stock visibility in selected Health Facilities in Masaka District Local Government and City. This is a push from the Ministry of Health that will see a move to paperless ordering of Health Facility commodities over time.
