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
CHAI currently seeks an Associate Scientist to work with the Rwanda Social Security Board (RSSB), reporting directly to the Director General, to help improve the use of evidence for policy decision making.
The Associate Scientist will lead the to design and support the implementation of a new data analytics strategy that aims to help RSSB deliver successfully on their key strategic initiatives for 2020/2025. This effort is cornerstone to RSSB’s goal to disrupting how data is managed and used, including big data, to inform important policy and operational decisions. Greater availability and use of data will be critical to improving the health of Rwandans, as it will help government leaders make more informed decisions on which health interventions to provide coverage, and improve the financial sustainability of the various insurance schemes, and RSSB as a whole.
The Associate Scientist will help design and implement the framework for improved data analytics, and support to the set-up of a data analytics team and systems within RSSB. This will take place in parallel with the implementation of a new IT system for RSSB, and the Associate Scientist will work closely with the IT team so they can translate of data needs into system requirements.
This is a top government priority and the Associate Scientist will therefore be seconded to RSSB reporting directly to the Director General. Applicants resumes will be reviewed in coordination with RSSB.
