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.
Technology plays a key role in achieving these objectives. Building strong information systems can substantially reduce the time taken to collect and access data, improve data quality, and reduce redundancies in parallel data collection systems. Availability of higher quality information enables programs to target and tailor their programs and use resources more effectively. CHAI’s malaria and NTD program applies digital tools and systems to support effective decision-making through automated analyses, visualizations, and presentation of data in simple and actionable forms.
Overview of Role
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated and mission-driven individual to drive and oversee the design, development, and implementation of government technological platforms for malaria and NTD elimination and control across 20+ countries. S/he will manage a team of eight regional health information staff to provide effective technical leadership and support to CHAI teams and government malaria and NTD programs.
A successful candidate will need to possess strong leadership, communication, organizational, and management skills, and be able to work independently to drive implementation. The candidate will work closely with CHAI technical and operational teams to design and manage implementation of context-appropriate strategies and approaches to apply information technology for malaria and NTD surveillance, case management, campaigns and vector control interventions, and program management. They must exhibit a passion for results, a commitment to excellence, a willingness to provide support to different tasks, and the capacity to facilitate high-level strategic discussions with a multi-cultural, multidisciplinary set of actors. The candidate will build and manage relationships with external institutions including technology companies, academic partners, the WHO, and government technical bodies to drive the execution of programs, stay abreast of emerging technologies, and ensure strong capacity and transition of systems to government programs.
CHAI places great value on the following qualities in its staff: resourcefulness, responsibility, patience, tenacity, humility, independence, energy, and work ethic.
