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 hallmark of CHAI’s approach is simultaneous and intensive engagement on the demand and supply sides of the market. On the demand side, CHAI’s country teams help governments to overcome barriers to scale up treatment and prevention programs. Meanwhile, the CHAI global access teams work to address supply-side barriers to access and foster a healthy marketplace to ensure the sustainable supply of essential medicines and diagnostic commodities. CHAI works to attract new suppliers, lower drug prices, encourage the adoption of stringent quality standards, and facilitate the uptake of important new or improved products.
CHAI’s HIV Access Program (HAP) works to address barriers to treatment scale-up by engaging across the treatment cascade and addressing commodity and service delivery barriers to ensure patients treatment, care, and prevention services they need.
The Southern Africa Regional Manager will work to ensure the introduction and scale-up of high-quality antiretroviral therapy for HIV/AIDS patients. The Regional Manager will be responsible for supporting several countries in Southern Africa, including Eswatini, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The Regional Manager will travel frequently between countries to provide end-to-end technical assistance to Ministries of Health to enable rapid uptake of optimal ARVs. This will include building strong, trusted relationships with CHAI country teams, Ministry of Health counterparts and partner organisations and providing technical assistance in all aspects of developing and costing optimal ARV introduction strategies. S/he will be expected to build consensus among a range of stakeholders and to independently find creative solutions to systems or process challenges that delay progress towards program goals.
This role has flexibility to be based in a CHAI program country in Southern Africa, pending CHAI Country Leadership approval.
