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.

Summary of Position
CHAI launched its Viral Hepatitis program in 2015 with the goal of catalyzing and rapidly scaling screening and treatment programs in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs), starting with a focus in seven countries (Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Vietnam). CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual to work as a Health Information Technical Advisor to play a critical role in helping Rwanda and other program focal countries improve how to collect and analyze data to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of efforts to eliminate viral hepatitis.
The Technical Advisor will work with CHAI staff to provide technical assistance and support to national Hepatitis Programs on the optimization and application of information technology for data collection, management, analysis, and use. This will include creating, modifying, and maintaining potentially complex and diverse surveillance platforms, system integrations, and data analytics; assessing performance and data integrity of surveillance systems; supporting training of technology solutions; monitoring and evaluating the performance of different surveillance systems; and helping staff use and troubleshoot health information systems on an ongoing basis.
This role will have a specific focus supporting strengthening and decentralization of digital systems for Rwanda’s Hepatitis program to reduce the number of patients who are lost between the screening, diagnosis, and treatment stages and ensure Rwanda remains on track to achieve Hepatitis C (HCV) elimination by 2021. The Technical Advisor will also be responsible for ensuring lessons learned, best practices and knowledge developed on the roll-out of digital solutions in Rwanda are documented and shared with other program focal countries.
A successful candidate will need to work with team members across CHAI’s Global, Regional and Country Hepatitis Teams and will therefore need to possess strong communication, organizational, and management skills as well as be able to work independently to drive implementation and have deep personal commitment to producing results.
