Job Discription

Program Assistant 
Based at Delhi and Raipur 

Jhpiego is a nonprofit global health leader and Johns Hopkins University affiliate that is saving lives, improving health and transforming futures. 

We partner with governments, health experts and local communities to build the skills and systems that guarantee a healthier future for women and families. 

Jhpiego translates the best science and practice into moments of care that can mean the difference between life and death for women and families. The moment a woman gives birth; the moment a midwife helps a newborn to breath; the moment a nurse screens for cervical cancer with a simple vinegar swab; the moment a community health worker tests a man for HIV and reports he is HIV free. 

Through our partnerships, we are revolutionizing health care for the world’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people.

In India, Jhpiego works across various states, in close collaboration with national and state governments, providing technical assistance in the areas of family planning, maternal and child health, and pre-service nursing and midwifery education. These projects are funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Norway India Partnership Initiative (NIPI), David & Lucile Packard Foundation, Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), Merck for Mothers and others.
