Founded in 2002, by President William J. Clinton and Ira Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (“CHAI”) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems and expanding access to care and treatment in the developing world. CHAI’s solution-oriented approach focuses on improving market dynamics for medicines and diagnostics; lowering prices for treatment; accelerating access to lifesaving technologies; and helping governments build the capacity required for high-quality care and treatment programs. Since its inception, CHAI’s programs have helped more than 11.8 million people in more than 70 countries have access to CHAI-negotiated prices for HIV/AIDS medicines, saving the global health community billions of dollars.

Malaria is one of the world's most important causes of illness, death, and lost economic productivity.  Over the past decade, dramatic increases in donor funding have facilitated scale-up of effective interventions to prevent, diagnosis, and treat malaria. This investment has successfully reduced the burden of malaria in many settings, and some countries have begun planning to eliminate it altogether. CHAI’s malaria program provides direct management and technical support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease.

In the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), CHAI has been supporting countries since 2014 to transition their national malaria programs and strategies to achieve malaria elimination in an accelerated manner. Malaria elimination in the GMS has significant urgency due the growing threat of multi-drug resistant malaria. CHAI is supporting malaria programs in Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia to achieve the required level of programmatic capacity to devise targeted, evidence-based plans, identify sufficient resources to enact them, strengthen surveillance systems, scale-up interventions in high risk and hard-to-reach populations, and coordinate activities regionally.  CHAI supports focus countries to identify programmatic gaps and define solutions to them, laying the groundwork for malaria programs that can eliminate malaria sustainably.

To coordinate malaria elimination efforts across the region and provide strategic and technical support to CHAI country teams, CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with strong management skills, public health experience, robust analytical and writing skills, and extensive organization and communication skills, to serve as Malaria Regional Manager in Southeast Asia. The Regional Manager is the primary interface between CHAI's country teams working on malaria in Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam and its global technical teams and external partners. The Regional Manager supports the country teams with strategic planning, effective implementation, staffing, and management support across all technical areas, while streamlining communications and interactions between county teams and global technical staff.
