Ghana Country Director

Are you an experienced leader with an entrepreneurial spirit? LifeNet International, a Christian NGO, is expanding to Ghana and looking for a Country Director who is passionate about starting something new. Join us as we seek to transform Ghanaian health centers to provide quality, sustainable care and save lives.

LifeNet International is recruiting for the position of Ghana Country Director to lead our work to improve health outcomes in partner healthcare facilities in Ghana.

LifeNet is a nonprofit organization that creates innovative solutions for the everyday health challenges facing Africa’s poor. In 2012, LifeNet launched our first health network in Burundi, to build capacity of 10 local faith-based facilities through nurse training, management systems, and a holistic approach towards improving access to quality healthcare services.

We have rapidly expanded upon this foundation and now operate five country programs across sub-Saharan Africa. Our goal is to improve clinical performance at our partner facilities and help them achieve financial sustainability through sound management practices, and equipment supply programs.

This position will hold the responsibility for program objectives, partnership management, local and regional fundraising, recruiting, financial management, and day-to-day operations in Ghana. The Ghana Country Director is based full-time in Accra, and reports directly to LifeNet’s Vice President of Programs, who is based in our US headquarters in Washington, D.C.
