The Field Coordinator will work with HAC staff and partners to conduct community organizing activities, expand work to new villages, collect relevant data, and network with relevant officials.

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

In these outreach clinics health workers give HIV testing, anti-retroviral treatment, immunizations, perinatal services, family planning, and many other services available in rural health centres.

Treat & Teach: We improve 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.
Digitalisation of the Health Commodities Supply Chain: In partnership with
