Position: Associate, Viral Hepatitis (Clinton Health Access Initiative - CHAI)__Deadline:08-May

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 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.

Country Program Overview

CHAI began working in Cambodia in 2005 to help the Ministry of Health tackle the rise in HIV by introducing better treatment for adults and children and eliminating mother-to-child transmission. The CHAI Cambodia office has grown rapidly since its inception to manage multiple projects. In addition to HIV, CHAI is now supporting the Ministry of Health to tackle the burden of disease TB, eliminate malaria and address multi-drug resistance, save the lives of women through improved access to lifesaving reproductive health care, enhance immunization systems, increase oxygen availability at all levels of the health system, strengthen laboratory services, and more. Looking ahead, we wish to support the Cambodia Ministry of Health achieves its goals for non-communicable diseases (e.g. diabetes, hypertension, cancer, mental health, etc.).

In line with WHO global targets for viral hepatitis, in 2020 the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) set the goal of eliminating hepatitis C (HCV) and hepatitis B (HBV) including Mother-to-Child Transmission (MTCT) nationwide by 2030. Under the leadership of the Communicable Disease Control Department (CDC), Cambodia has put in place key strategy and policy documents for these services. With government budget allocation and the support of partners, targeted introduction of services was introduced in late 2023 to 15 health operational districts. Building on this progress, Cambodia’s Viral Hepatitis Program aims to expand services nationwide to increase access to lifesaving services, especially amongst pregnant women and older adults.
