Organization: Evidence Action
Location: Washington, DC, United States
Eligible Citizenship: All Non-US Citizens
Application Code: US09-Int
Job Function: Knowledge Management
Issue Area: Health Systems Strengthening / Healthcare Access, Infectious Diseases, Water and Sanitation


Evidence Action scales proven interventions that improve the lives of millions. We implement cost-effective interventions whose efficacy is backed by substantial rigorous evidence.
We identify innovative, appropriate financing mechanisms, and build best practice operational models. We voraciously self-evaluate, learn, and improve our models for scaling with a commitment to transparency on progress, impact, and value for money.
Our current programs are:
  • Dispensers for Safe Water: an entrepreneurial program serving over 4.7 million people in rural Eastern and Southern Africa. It is a proven innovation that dramatically expands access to water treatment at an extremely low cost
  • Deworm the World Initiative: provides technical assistance to governments to launch, scale up, and sustain mass school-based deworming programs to improve children’s health, education, and long-term development. It currently supports treatment of over 200 million children annually
  • Evidence Action Beta: investigates programs with proven impact that might be next in line for scale-up to millions of people. Similar to beta testing for software, we are pressure-testing promising interventions to determine their suitability for massive scaling

Position Overview

The Deworm the World Initiative supports government-led mass deworming programs across five countries in Africa and Asia. We deliver this technical assistance via in-country program teams as well as a small global team based in Washington, DC. The body of knowledge in support of mass deworming is constantly growing and evolving (including scientific and operational research, global policies and guidelines, and lessons from implementers worldwide). Maintaining a deep understanding of this wide-ranging information, and using it to inform program improvements at scale, is a priority for us.
The Knowledge Management Associate will work closely with in-country program teams and the global deworming team, engaging external experts where appropriate, to ensure that we are using all available knowledge and resources to inform and fine-tune our evidence-based, best-practice program design. The fellow may participate in working groups, research and develop case studies to inform program design, or facilitate trainings for staff around the world. The fellow will stay abreast of relevant research, policies, and programming—and will filter, distill, and share key lessons with program leaders in order to increase program efficiencies. There will also be opportunities for interaction and collaboration with cross-cutting teams like communications, monitoring and evaluation, and more.


  • Develop and drive a learning agenda for Evidence Action’s deworming teams, engaging both internal and external content experts to gather, synthesize, and disseminate lessons among program staff
  • Produce and share relevant case studies and curated resources that address key challenges faced by program teams (for instance, strategies for increasing coverage of hard-to-reach groups, tools for effective capacity building with government partners, new opportunities to leverage technology at scale, etc.)
  • Participate in and contribute to multi-organization working groups in the Neglected Tropical Disease space
  • Contribute to review and revision of quarterly program reports
  • Develop and deliver trainings for program teams on relevant tools or resources
  • Provide additional support to the global deworming team as needed, particularly related to research and information gathering, as well as occasional program management support

Desired Skills and Experience

Items indicated with an asterisk (*) are required
  • Bachelor’s degree*
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills*
  • Experience working with diverse, multi-cultural teams*
  • Proficiency using programs such as PowerPoint, Word, Excel, and Google docs*
  • Experience facilitating groups and/or leading trainings
  • Experience conducting research, analysis, and literature reviews
  • Ability to manage multiple work streams; eagerness to take initiative and pitch new ideas
  • Previous work or study in a developing country context is preferred
  • Strong interest in becoming a content expert on neglected tropical diseases, relevant health policies, and the body of evidence in support of mass school-based deworming
  • Sense of humor

  • A pre-tax living stipend of $1100/month
  • Housing and utilities

  • A professional development grant of $600
  • An award of $1500 upon successful completion of the fellowship year
  • Travel costs covered to and from placement site, training and retreats
