Oferta de trabajo: Web, Social Media and Communication Assistant of Chagas Coalition


The Global Chagas Disease Coalition is an international Coalition with members in different countries affected by Chagas, both endemic and non-endemic countries. ISGlobal holds the coordination and legal representativeness of the Coalition which is based in Barcelona, Spain.
The Coalition was founded in December 2012 by the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi), Fundación Mundo Sano, Colectivo de Estudios Aplicados y Desarrollo Social (CEADES), ISGlobal, Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, and the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine.  The founding members have since been joined by several other organizations as regular partners, contributors and observers/advisore.
The Coalition’s mission is to increase awareness of Chagas disease through greater political commitment on the part of policy makers in the affected countries and to call for greater access to treatment for patients and a commitment to provide the funds needed to finance interventions (including treatment programmes) and R&D.
The Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) is a cutting-edge institute addressing global public health challenges through research, translation into policy and education. ISGlobal has a broad portfolio in communicable and non-communicable diseases including environmental and climate determinants, and applies a multidisciplinary scientific approach ranging from the molecular to the population level. Research is organized in three main areas, Malaria and other Infectious Diseases, Child and Maternal Health, and Urban Health, Climate & Non-Communicable Diseases.  ISGlobal is accredited with the Severo Ochoa distinction, a seal of excellence of the Spanish Science Ministry.
