Dear Colleagues please see recruitment opportunity below.


Dear Digital Health Community members and friends,


We are reaching out to you about an exciting opportunity from the Digital Health Applied Leadership Program.

The Digital Health Applied Leadership Program (DHALP) is a year-long learning program that enhances participants’ capacity to successfully lead and execute digital health programs. With support from Digital Square, the University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is leading the DHALP’s implementation with a consortium that includes the University of Thies, the Stanford Center for Health Education, Inshuti Mu Buzima-Partners in Health, TechChange, and the World Bank.


The DHALP is seeking coaches to mentor the next generation of leaders in digital health, from participants selection to the successful implementation of capstone projects. As such, ideal coaches of the DHALP country teams are expected to be: 

                     Active members of the participants’ selected countries (Cameroon, DRC, Guinea, Malawi, and Zimbabwe)’s or regions’ digital health communities

                     Digital health experts who understand the ecosystem of any of the selected countries to be coached (Cameroon, DRC, Guinea, Malawi, and Zimbabwe)

•               Experts in leading digital health projects, innovations, and teams

•               Fluent in spoken and written English and/or French



In the beginning part of the training program, coaches will support participants during coursework, holding discussion sessions and answering participant questions. During the latter part of the training program, coaches will advise participants on the progress of their country team projects and the challenges or systemic improvements they face. The range of their advice could be broad enough to include:

  1. Serving as a sounding board for ideas about the nature of the challenge, its root causes, and proposed lines of action;
  2. Advice on particular dilemmas and choices country teams may face along the way;
  3. Coaching on how to manage matters, such as personnel, competing priorities, relationships within the team or with other stakeholders;
  4. Personal reflections by individual members of the country team on their own development as leaders;
  5. Support the long-term networking of their teams’s participants and assist in the development of a community of leadership practice via ongoing webinars, conferences and continued professional development opportunities.


In addition, coaches will contribute substantially to the evaluation of the performance of each team, by assessing achievement of aims; scale of ambition; impact on the MOH and country healthcare system; and learning by individual participants. Coaches will also be asked to contribute an assessment of their country team members’ leadership development over the course of the training program, and to identify ways to foster the potential for further leadership roles.



Due to the structure of the program, the coaching schedule will be divided into two sections:

  • February 2022 – May 2022: 3 days/week
  • June 2022 – January 2023: 2 hours/week


All interested applicants should contact and share their CVs with Nadine Karema (, Jean Louis Ndiaye (, and CC Lauren Wall (
