Job offer: Chagas Initiative Coordinator

Description

The Barcelona Institute for Global Health, ISGlobal, is the fruit of an innovative alliance between academic, government, and philanthropic institutions to contribute to the efforts undertaken by the international community to address the challenges in global health.
 
Chagas Disease is a parasitic disease considered a one of the 2020 neglected tropical diseases, most of which could be prevented or eliminated. Despite the great suffering and disability they cause, these diseases lack visibility and receive little attention because they only affect vulnerable populations that have little or no political voice. One example is Chagas disease, which we have been fighting for over a decade.
