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.

Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) has launched an ambitious effort to scale-up access to treatment for diarrhea and pneumonia, which combined, kill over 1.5 million children every year. Working with the governments of five high-burden countries and leading global institutions, CHAI’s Essential Medicines team is supporting intensified efforts at both global and country levels to plan, resource, and implement effective interventions for scaling-up access to treatment for these conditions – specifically zinc and ORS for diarrhea, and amoxicillin and oxygen for pneumonia. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Essential Medicines team has expanded its oxygen work to ten countries, supporting pandemic response efforts while strengthening long-term oxygen systems planning.
CHAI is seeking an Associate, Procurement and Operations to play a critical role on the Oxygen program of the Essential Medicines team, serving as the primary resource on managing commodity procurement and assisting with the financial management of the grant. The Associate will interface directly with the UNITAID grant management team, partner suppliers and the in-country program team leaders to ensure that donor expectations and country team requirements for procurement and finance management are met. They will act as the team’s lead on internal procurement management matters and will also work in close collaboration with the grant’s finance manager on Budgeting & Reporting.
