HealthRight International is a global health and human rights organization working to build lasting access to health for excluded communities. Establishing local partnerships and working closely with communities, HealthRight’s projects combine direct provision of services with training, equipment, systems strengthening and advocacy to ensure a broad and long-lasting impact.

After successfully overseeing the growth and development of the organization for several years, the current executive director has determined that the time is right to explore new career options. As a result, we are seeking a new executive director who will lead the organization through this transition and ensure program delivery remains excellent while helping promote the rebranded organization with current partners and develop new relationships. Required skills include a passion for and familiarity with global health and human rights issues, leadership exemplified by the ability to communicate effectively with donors, corporations and other external constituents as well as ensure excellent program delivery and operational expertise.
