Overview of role
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual to work as a Regional Malaria Strategy and Financing (MSaF) Associate to help governments in Southeast Asia obtain and manage the financial resources necessary to achieve historic malaria elimination. Over the last decade, Southeast Asia has received close to a $1B USD in financing from the Global Fund to progress towards elimination of drug-resistant malaria. As part of the Global Malaria Elimination Team, the MSaF Associate will be responsible for providing direct support to the Ministries of Health across four countries (Cambodia, Lao, Myanmar, and Vietnam) in achieving their elimination goals within the next five years. The MSaF Associate will support the development of strategic plans for sustainably eliminating malaria and preventing resurgence and develop the cost models to determine the resources required. The MSaF Associate will collaborate with several partners, including the Global Fund and the World Health Organization, to identify and obtain sustainable funding streams, including securing government financing for key interventions, and ensure appropriate transitioning away from donor resources. The MSaF Associate will also conduct cost optimization analysis for specific interventions and work with country governments and donors to improve financial and program management. The Associate will report to the Senior Manager of the Global Malaria MSaF Team.
The Associate will bring outstanding analytical, problem-solving, organizational, and communication skills and must be able to work independently and have deep personal commitment to producing results. No background in finance or malaria is required, but the Associate will be expected to be fluent in Excel. Most of all, CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities including resourcefulness, tenacity, independence, patience, humility, and strong work ethic.
