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, in partnership with its India affiliate William J Clinton Foundation (WJCF), works in close partnership with and under the guidance of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) at the Central and States' levels on an array of high priority initiatives aimed at improving health outcomes. Currently, CHAI works across projects to expand access to quality care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis-C (HCV), tuberculosis, cancer, and immunization.
CHAI’s Health Financing program supports governments implementing reforms towards the goal of universal health coverage; ensuring that patients can access the care they need without suffering financial hardship. In India, CHAI staff work closely with the National Health Authority (NHA) and State Health Agencies (SHAs) in three states to build capacity for and support evidence-based decision making in the design and implementation of AB-PMJAY. At state level, our approach is focused on support to three key areas – i) the implementation of core insurance operations, supported by ii) a robust performance management system that is informed by iii) a culture of routine insurance (provider, claims and enrolment) and health data use. This includes using evidence to identify gaps in access and delivery of services, and supporting the SHA to finance and reliably deliver services through public and private sector.
The Project Manager will be a core member of CHAI’s rapidly growing health financing program in India, working in collaboration with a team based across the NHA and three SHAs in supporting one of the largest insurance schemes in the world. The successful candidate will lead significant areas of strategic and technical engagements with the SHAs, delivering technical assistance and building capacity for evidence-informed decision making in core insurance operations, including enrolment, empanelment and claims management, linked to a strong performance management system at the SHA. They will work in collaboration with CHAI and other institutional partners to create a learning and capacity building ecosystem through day-to-day engagements, mentorship and formal training, as well as support knowledge sharing efforts on insurance implementation between center and states.
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding credentials, strategic thinking, project management, communication skills and technical skills to help shape the health financing program in India. The candidate must be able to function independently and flexibly and have a strong commitment to excellence. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic.
