About Us Our Strategy for delivering high-quality, cost-effective community health through and with digitally empowered, equipped, supplied, supervised, and compensated CHWs requires that we continuously re-invent the way we work.

Innovating incessantly and with swift responsiveness to global trends is a critical success factor for building a thriving and sustainable LG of today and tomorrow.

Over the last four years, Living Goods has become a more complex organization with multiple implementation modes, exciting opportunities in new countries, and new partnerships in existing countries.

Furthermore, while we have delivered some strong work in technology over the last couple of years, we now need to go the extra mile beyond technology and ensure a much greater emphasis on government partnerships in the broader digital health space.

We can only do this by building a great place to work where our teams thrive, grow, and deliver extraordinary results.
