The Foundation

We are the largest nonprofit\u00a0fighting poverty, disease, and inequity around the world. Founded on a simple premise: that people everywhere, regardless of identity or circumstances, should have the chance to live healthy, productive lives. By building a global and cultural workplace that supports\u00a0greater diversity, equity, and inclusion \u2014 of voices, ideas, and approaches \u2014 together with our employees and partners, we can help all people improve their lives from poverty and health to education.

The Team

The Africa team works to enable the foundation\u2019s ambitious goals of scaling evidence-based interventions that target a range of disease and socio-economic conditions which are endemic across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The team carries out its responsibility through direct country engagement to deploy interventions and delivery models, and by building the partner architecture to replicate successful interventions and models across multiple countries.
