Position: Technical Associate (CHAI)__Deadline:15Jul


The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to our mission of saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries. We work at the invitation of governments to support them and the private sector to create and sustain high-quality health systems. 

 

CHAI was founded in 2002 in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic with the goal of dramatically reducing the price of life-saving drugs and increasing access to these medicines in the countries with the highest burden of the disease. Over the following two decades, CHAI has expanded its focus. Today, along with HIV, we work in conjunction with our partners to prevent and treat infectious diseases such as COVID-19, malaria, tuberculosis, and hepatitis. Our work has also expanded into cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and other non-communicable diseases, and we work to accelerate the rollout of lifesaving vaccines, reduce maternal and child mortality, combat chronic malnutrition, and increase access to assistive technology. We are investing in horizontal approaches to strengthen health systems through programs in human resources for health, digital health, and health financing. With each new and innovative program, our strategy is grounded in maximizing sustainable impact at scale, ensuring that governments lead the solutions, that programs are designed to scale nationally, and learnings are shared globally.  


At CHAI, our people are our greatest asset, and none of this work would be possible without their talent, time, dedication and passion for our mission and values. We are a highly diverse team of enthusiastic individuals across 40 countries with a broad range of skillsets and life experiences. CHAI is deeply grounded in the countries we work in, with majority of our staff based in program countries. Learn more about our exciting work: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org


CHAI is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and is committed to providing an environment of fairness, and mutual respect where all applicants have access to equal employment opportunities. CHAI values diversity and inclusion, and recognizes that our mission is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of people with diverse experience, backgrounds, and culture.

 

CHAI’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long-term. Since 2013, CHAI has been supporting Haiti’s Ministry of Health to make meaningful steps in orienting its strategic plans and systems towards historic elimination of malaria by 2030.

 

Overview of role

 

CHAI seeks a highly motivated individual with experience in the control or elimination of infectious diseases, preferably with experience in malaria, disease surveillance systems, data analysis and/or public health research to spearhead and coordinate CHAI’s malaria surveillance and analytics work in the Dominican Republic. This individual will collaborate with the Ministry of Health and its partners to further improve case-based malaria surveillance at both facility and community levels, monitoring of vector control interventions and strengthen routine analytics of the data generated. The aim of this support is to ensure that robust evidence is available to inform the Ministry’s strategic and operational decisions. Strong analytical, communication and organizational skills are needed as this Associate will work closely with CHAI's Global and Regional Malaria Teams to generate and translate epidemiological evidence to the National Malaria Control Program and other in-country and international partners.

 

The Technical Associate will report directly to CHAI’s Program Lead in Dominican Republic while technical guidance and backstopping will be provided by the regional epidemiologists, Health Information, entomology, and vector control specialists.

 

The candidate must be able to multi-task, work independently, and build strong relationships to consolidate CHAI’s partnerships and drive progress. Furthermore, the candidate must have deep personal commitment to producing results and a willingness to travel to relatively remote regions with limited infrastructure and medical care. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities including resourcefulness, tenacity, independence, patience, and humility.
