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. For more information, please visit: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org
The Associate will work closely with CHAI’s Country Manager to provide analytical support for a range of partnerships and projects with the Chinese government in the areas of public health and development aid. He/she will be exposed to work in various disease program areas, including but not limited to tuberculosis, maternal and child health, vaccines, malaria, hepatitis and assistive technology.
The majority of such projects require global cross-border cooperation and global coordination with both public and private sector stakeholders. The Associate may work independently and/or with mixed teams consisting of project and local site staff from both within CHAI and external partners such as government entities, international organization, private companies and academic institutions.
He/she will be engaged in various activities related to research, data collection, stakeholder interviews, quantitative policy analysis, and financial and business modeling to provide support to the CHAI teams and their government counterparts in identifying root causes and developing appropriate interventions for informed policy changes. Given the scope and purpose of collaboration, the project team will use the insights generated to support evidence-based decision-making that may impact government policy, public health system structure and/or conduct, health financing, and purchasing and supply management strategies.
He/she will be able to work in a flexible, entrepreneurial and results-driven manner under pressure, but still with optimism even in the face of complex challenges.
