Job Opportunity: Program Manager at Open Society Foundations in NYC

The Open Society Foundations’ Public Health Program advances a human rights approach to health, with an emphasis on social inclusion and reclaiming the public good in health. We work to make justice systems more responsive to health, to challenge the health establishment to advance human rights, to shift power dynamics in health-related decision-making, and to influence the funding environment for health and rights. More information about the Public Health Program can be found here.
The Program Manager supports the director of International Harm Reduction Development (IHRD) of the Public Health Program, supervising three program officers and one administrative staff in their work to advance the health and human rights of people who use drugs in countries in Asia, Eastern Europe, East Africa and the Americas.  As a working manager, the Program Manager also formulates strategy and implements grants, technical assistance and advocacy to advance IHRD’s work.  The Program Manager coordinates IHRD’s strategy formation, monitors budget and grant-making processes, and helps lead learning events and team building for IHRD.
