The EssentialMed Foundation, based at the Innovation Park of EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, is seeking to hire :
A PROJECT LEADER (100%) - Medical Oxygen Against Child Mortality
Mission: Access to medical Oxygen is crucially needed in hospitals in low-income countries, where it saves lives of children with deadly diseases such as pneumonia. Unfortunately, it is mostly unavailable. The foundation participates in a consortium, which will develop an oxygen concentrator adapted to the local needs in these countries. The foundation’s mission is to develop a strategy for training users of this technology. The challenge involves of creating a local social enterprise modelled on providing training for health workers. The two main challenges are 1) the development of the content of the training adapted to the needs, and 2) the identification of sustainable business models.
