Senior HIV Global Health Associate

International Full-time Allows remote

SystemOne is a software and consulting company focused on the medical diagnostic landscape in the developing world. We improve clinical care in low and middle income countries by moving data to the right people at the right place and time. SystemOne's Aspect™ platform moves data from millions of real-time HIV and Tuberculosis patient diagnostic tests in 42 countries and the pace is accelerating. The unprecedented volume and quality of data we process can be used to measure disease outbreaks, patient care, expensive equipment and reagent utilization, and component efficiencies within the health system.


We believe that medical resources have done great work in solving the world’s worst disease challenges. But they will never succeed without the rapid movement of data. Moving data rapidly to the right people at the right time can make decades of efforts pay off in the near term. We bring to the world solutions that can dramatically improve global health while significantly reducing costs in terms of lives, time and financial investment.
