D-tree - Zanzibar Director

Reports to: Director of Program Operations

Location: Stone Town, Zanzibar

Start date: Immediate opening

Who we are

D-tree has been pioneering digital health since 2004 and leverages digital technology to create solutions that transform health systems for the better, making people’s care more personalized, more accessible, and more coordinated. We work with governments from ideation to implementation, combining a deep understanding of local contexts with global expertise to build human-centered, government-aligned digital health programs that are designed to scale and integrate into health systems — ultimately leading to sustainable, long term improvements in health outcomes for all. We partner with technology organizations, academia, medical hospitals, and like-minded organizations internationally and locally, private and public.

Since 2011, D-tree has partnered with the Zanzibar Ministry of Health to implement an innovative digital health program, Jamii ni Afya (“Community is health”) 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. Over time, Jamii ni Afya has grown from a pilot to a national program and has demonstrated how digital technology can transform the quality of a health system. The Zanzibar government has committed to adopt Jamii ni Afya at national scale; integrating digitally-enabled Community Health Volunteers into their formal Community Health Strategy. This represents the world’s first nationally scaled digital community health program, bringing high quality health services to the doorsteps of all of Zanzibar. The digital health program will be fully scaled in July 2021, allowing D-tree to focus on program sustainability, quality and impact.

An important aspect of our work is ongoing government engagement and capacity building to fully transition Jamii ni Afya to the government in terms of financial & political, technology & data and program & operational management. We are in the process of finalizing a transition plan together with the Zanzibar government which outlines their commitment to taking on significant responsibility for the program, resulting in full government ownership and management by 2026. While we are committed to the institutionalization of Jamii ni Afya, we are also working to further realize the potential of digital health to strengthen the broader primary health system in Zanzibar, acting as a key trusted partner to the government as they explore how the health system can continue to be strengthened. This is an exciting opportunity to help deepen and expand our work and impact.
