The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance.

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.
Overview of role:
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual to help directly support governments in Southern Africa with the strategic planning, resource mobilization and management support needed to achieve historic malaria elimination. A key focus will be helping some countries transition from donor to domestic funding through optimal resource allocation and increased domestic funding support. Countries to be supported in Southern Africa include Mozambique, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Angola, and Botswana, with the potential for work in other sub-Saharan African countries as needed. Base location is potentially flexible within the southern Africa region pending work authorization and approval of CHAI.
The Associate will bring outstanding analytical, problem-solving, organizational, and communication skills and must be able to work independently and have deep personal commitment to producing results.
