The END Fund is a leading philanthropic investment vehicle with a mission to control or eliminate diseases that affect the world’s poorest people, specifically five of the most prevalent neglected tropical diseases (NTDs): intestinal worms, river blindness, trachoma, schistosomiasis and lymphatic filariasis. In the first five years since the END Fund’s inception (2012-2016), the team mobilized more than $75 million in private investments and supported delivery of over 331 million treatments, training of more than 750,000 health workers, and provision of over 10,000 surgeries for people suffering from these preventable and controllable diseases. In 2017 alone, the END Fund supported partners to provide over 160 million NTD treatments (valued at over $330 million) to more than 90 million people at risk of NTDs in 23 countries. In a short time, the END Fund has thus established a strong track record in private philanthropic giving.
The END Fund accomplishes its mission by:
· Mobilizing and investing resources to where they can have maximum impact;
· Advocating for innovative, integrated and cost-effective NTD programs; and
· Facilitating private sector engagement to end diseases of poverty.
The END Fund’s strategic programming and priorities are in line with the WHO and global NTD community’s common roadmap to control or eliminate the most common NTDs. The END Fund has a special emphasis on Africa and currently supports NTD programs in 10 strategic priority countries in Africa and an additional 12 to 15 countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The END Fund is actively seeking to expand its community of visionary and engaged philanthropists, foundations, and corporations committed to treating and preventing the spread of NTDs. Ensuring organizational learning and evidence-based decision making is integral to this growth strategy.
A key member of the New York-based team, the Program Associate’s primary role is to support the Programs Director(s) in program management and oversight for a portfolio of NTD control programs.
The END Fund maintains consistent engagement with implementing partners and in managing programs. The Programs Associate must support the Director to monitor financial expenditure and program activities as well as the maintenance of data in the data portal. Additionally, the Associate will contribute to the research for new granting opportunities. The Programs Associate is a member of the END Fund’s Programs Team, but will also work to support all teams across the organization and contribute to the development of fundraising proposals and other donor contact opportunities as required.
