Position: Field Coordinator

Location: Masaka with frequent travel to all HAC implementation districts and communities

Application Deadline: 7 February 2021


The Field Coordinator will oversee the day-to-day needs generated by the expansion and maintenance of our mobile clinics and outreach activities. Our organization runs on a hub-spokes model in which we have administration staff based in Kampala who oversee the field staff and partners in the districts that we serve. To support this model, our administration staff regularly visit district headquarters and field sites. The Field Coordinator position will work to improve our relationships and coordination with staff, government officials, health workers, civil society partners, and community members and as well help to improve our coordination as we scale up our activities. S/he will report to the Program Manager  and will work closely with Field Officers, M&E staff, and others.



The mission of Health Access Connect is to link remote communities to healthcare. HAC currently pursues this mission through three programs:

  1. Medicycles: We use microfinance boda bodas to bring Ugandan government health workers to set up one-day mobile clinics in remote villages. In those clinics health workers give HIV testing, anti-retroviral treatment, immunizations, perinatal services, family planning, and many other services available in rural health centres.
  2. Technical Advising: We collaborate with Africa Resource Centre (ARC) and the Uganda Ministry of Health to teach and empower PEPFAR implementing partner (IP) organizations to implement alternative drug distribution point models in an effort to a) improve a) antiretroviral therapy (ART) and general treatment health service provision and b) decongest health facilities.
  3. Treat & Teach: We improves access to family planning in the communities of Masaka and Kalangala districts by a) providing low density high frequency certificate training to health workers, b) setting up outreach clinics in remote communities, c) generating demand by collaborating with community health workers (VHTs), and d) reducing commodity stock outs by providing buffer stocks and improving commodity tracking at partner health facilities.

The Field Coordinator is primarily responsible for overseeing the Medicycles program. The Medicycles program has three components: 1) transportation and microfinance, 2) monthly one-day clinics, and 3) oversight and wealth pooling by community leaders. HAC’s role is to identify villages to target with health officials, organize community leaders, coordinate with health center admins, and work to assure continuity of care. Our vision is  to continue to scale the program to serve remote areas (at least 5km from nearest health facility) throughout Uganda, and to document our model to make it open source so that providers in other regions of the world can use it to serve people in remote areas. Our current project goals are to expand to new areas in Kalangala, Rakai, Lwengo, Masaka, Lyantonde and Sembabule Districts and to implement our M&E Framework to understand the health needs and health-seeking behaviors of our target populations.
