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.

Overview of CHAI’s Non-Communicable Diseases Program
Each year, 15 million people die from non-communicable diseases between the ages of 30 and 69. Over 85 percent of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Cardiovascular diseases account for the most deaths, followed by cancers, respiratory diseases and diabetes. CHAI recently began work in this area with the launch of our cancer program in 2015 and is now expanding its programming related to noncommunicable diseases (NCD), initiating new programs related to diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
These new programs aim to improve access to affordable, quality-assured NCD medications and associated commodities in LMICs by working with country governments, high-quality manufacturers and global and local partners on strengthening strengthening medication procurement and health financing approaches; creating enabling policy environments for long-term country support for NCD control, including medication supply; and strengthening affordability and availability of preferred medications through global market shaping.
To support a large new program focused on NCDs in five countries (Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa), CHAI is looking for a Program Manager to support country implementation and market shaping work.
Preference for this role to be based in sub-Saharan Africa in a CHAI country office, pending leadership approval. 25-30% international travel time would be required once situation allows.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding strategic, analytical, communication and leadership skills. The successful candidate will adhere to the core CHAI values of resourcefulness, entrepreneurialism, flexibility, independence, humility, and work ethic. Responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:
