Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) is Hiring – MediCapt Director

Greetings All –

I write to share that Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) is currently hiring for a MediCapt Director to lead the scaling and implementation of MediCapt<>, a mobile application that is transforming the way forensic evidence is collected, documented, and deployed to support prosecutions and accountability for sexual violence. MediCapt is being used by Clinicians to compile forensic medical evidence of sexual violence, photograph survivors’ injuries, and securely transmit the data to police, lawyers, and judges involved in prosecuting sexual violence crimes.

PHR is looking for an entrepreneurial visionary to develop and direct the scaling strategy and lead the MediCapt project and team. The MediCapt Director will be responsible for providing strategic vision, guidance, and leading the growth, expansion, and implementation of the project. We are looking for a collaborator who will mobilize and work with a broad group of constituents and manage a team that will deliver on the complex day-to-day operations of the initiative.

MediCapt is at an exciting inflection point where it is poised for scaling. The app has been successfully piloted across four sites in Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, demonstrating proof of concept and the positive outcomes and impact of the application in these considerably different contexts. In the next phase of the project, PHR will launch a scaling plan to sustainably scale MediCapt nationally in Kenya as well as in new geographies to widen its reach and impact.

Please share the linked job description below with your networks and other suitable individuals that you think will be interested in applying. Thank you so much for your help!

Kind Regards,
Suzanne Kidenda | Senior Program Officer
