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 (LMICs), 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 is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and is committed to providing an environment of fairness, and mutual respect where all applicants have access to equal employment opportunities. CHAI values diversity and inclusion, and recognizes that our mission is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of people with diverse experience, backgrounds, and culture.
CHAI's Global Markets Team (GMT) is responsible for envisioning, executing, and monitoring market shaping interventions aimed at improving the efficiency of health commodity markets for lower income countries. These interventions range from traditional policy-led and grant-financed initiatives such as pooled procurement, coordinated ordering, strategic demand forecasting, and regulatory harmonization to more innovative credit enhancement mechanisms such as volume guarantees (VGs), advance market commitments (AMCs), and working capital facilities. GMT collaborates closely with internal and external stakeholders to evaluate the public health impact of a proposed intervention and ensure alignment with current and future policy goals.
For an example of the types of agreements CHAI helps negotiate, please see this press release.
The Associate will support market intelligence and market shaping activities for key commodities and services to improve health in LMICs. Key commodities include novel and existing antibiotics, medicines for the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, screening and diagnostic tools, such as drug resistance testing, molecular testing, lung imaging, and computer-aided diagnostic software based on artificial intelligence (AI). Their primary responsibility will be to prepare market analyses for the development and implementation of CHAI's global supply side strategy for the key products and services, support supplier negotiations, and collaborate with a range of internal and external stakeholders to design and implement interventions to ensure sufficient supply of affordable and high-quality diagnostic, prevention, and treatment commodities to low and middle-income markets. The position may require travel for supplier and partner meetings as well as to CHAI program countries.
We are seeking a highly motivated, entrepreneurial individual with outstanding problem-solving ability and communication skills. The Associate must be able to function independently and have a strong commitment to excellence. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness, humility, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic.
