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’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.
Countries in the Greater Mekong Sub-Region are progressing towards malaria elimination, and their malaria programs will need to rapidly detect and effectively treat infections, map areas where malaria transmission persists, and tailor and target intervention packages according to local contexts. CHAI is working to help malaria programs across the region achieve their ambitious goals by providing operational and technical support to strengthen surveillance systems, improve evidence-based planning, better manage programs, and coordinate activities regionally.
Overview of Role:
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with strong public health experience and analytical skills. This role offers a unique opportunity for a talented individual to apply epidemiological and analytical skills to guide the operations of a cross-country disease elimination program. The Associate will primarily support the countries CHAI supports in the Greater Mekong Subregion (Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar). Specifically, the Associate will assist with data analytics in the region to support malaria elimination strategies. This will include, but is not limited to, developing data visualizations (e.g. dashboards), analysis of routine malaria surveillance data and intervention data, developing maps of malaria indicator data, and monitoring and evaluation of ongoing projects. The individual will collaborate with a diverse team based across multiple countries, government programs, academics and public health agencies. It is expected that the Associate will need to partner with government programs, academics and public health agencies to ensure CHAI’s work is complementary and not duplicative.
The Associate will be part of the Global Malaria team, based in the region, and will report directly to the Technical Advisor.
CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities including resourcefulness, tenacity, independence, patience, humility, and strong work ethic.
