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.
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual to work as a Malaria Management, Strategy, and Finance Associate to help the government in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to obtain the financial resources necessary to achieve historic reductions in malaria cases and deaths.
As part of CHAI’s Global Malaria Program, the Associate will work alongside CHAI’s country and technical experts to help government staff develop or refine the DRC national strategic plan for malaria, create a costing model to assess financial resources needed, assist with cost optimization analysis for health strategies, and contribute to forecasting of resource needs.
The Associate will also support the DRC’s Ministry of Health and partners develop a Global Fund Funding Request for the 2024-2026 funding cycle to secure key financial resources to help the country achieve its malaria targets. Additionally, the Associate will help the DRC malaria program ensure that they are able to maximize the use of existing resources and help them plan for and seek out the additional resources they need. The Associate will report to the Associate Director of the Global Malaria Management, Strategy, Finance Team, and will work closely with the regional technical team and the DRC malaria program country team.
The Associate will bring outstanding analytical, problem-solving, organizational, and communication skills and must be able to work independently and have a deep personal commitment to producing results. No background in malaria is required, but the Associate is expected to be proficient in using Microsoft Excel. Most of all, this position requires resourcefulness, tenacity, patience, humility, and high ethical standards.
