Overview of role
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual to work as a part of its Honduras Malaria Team supporting the Ministry of Health’s National Malaria Program to plan and execute effective programs in the El Paraiso Region of Honduras, with some support to existing programs in Islas de la Bahia. Over the past four years, CHAI has rapidly engaged in the country and helped them make meaningful steps towards orienting their national strategic plans and systems towards historic elimination by 2022. This position will work as a part of CHAI’s Honduras team to support regional leadership in the strategic planning, organization and implementation of malaria activities in the areas of Case Management, Vector Control and Surveillance. The associate will serve as a thought-partner to derive targeted solutions and, as necessary, support reconfiguring current structures, policies, and activities to ensure detailed, feasible plans exist and to build the organizational capacity required to implement case management, surveillance and vector control strategies in the regions.
The candidate must be able to work independently to drive implementation and have deep personal commitment to producing results. A successful candidate will be highly motivated and hard working with exceptional, organizational, problem-solving, and communication skills.
CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities including resourcefulness, tenacity, independence, patience, humility, and strong work ethic.
