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.

CHAI’s Hepatitis Program in Rwanda commenced its support to the Rwanda Biomedical Center (RBC) in late 2015. This support includes technical assistance to develop strategic documents necessary for the implementation of the program, market-shaping activities to ensure Rwanda has access to low price and quality testing and treatment commodities, capacity building and service decentralization to ensure access to services across the country.
Following the launch of the National plan to eliminate Viral Hepatitis C (HCV), CHAI is particularly working with RBC to strengthen and decentralize data management systems across the country and ensure high quality data is available to inform the program and help the monitoring of the progress towards HCV elimination. CHAI is also working with RBC to strengthen the care and management of Viral Hepatitis B (HBV) and the scoping of HBV elimination.
The Senior Associate will assist the government by providing technical and strategic support to the National Hepatitis Program to ensure the programs’ readiness for Hepatitis elimination. They will support the implementation and the evaluation of HCV programmatic and impact indicators for elimination validation, and contribute to the development of a technical sustainability plan, post HCV elimination. The Senior Associate will also contribute to the scoping and implementation of the National HBV elimination plan. The Senior Associate will report administratively to CHAI Hepatitis Senior Program Manager.
