About CHAI’s Global HIV Access Program (HAP)
Since 2002, CHAI has been a leader in expanding and accelerating access to HIV treatment, reducing the cost of drugs and diagnostic tests, and strengthening the capacity of governments to help prevent and diagnose HIV and treat people living with HIV (PLHIV). CHAI’s simultaneous engagement on the supply and demand sides of the market, and our end-to-end, holistic support to national HIV programs is helping to address barriers that prevent people living in LMICs from accessing the best available treatment and prevention services. Recent highlights of our work include negotiating a landmark pricing deal for TLD, an optimal treatment regimen containing dolutegravir – the best available HIV treatment, accelerating its introduction across dozens of LMICs, and delivering over US $1.6B in savings. Over the years, CHAI has also played a particularly important role in the marketplace for pediatric antiretroviral therapy, substantially expanding access to appropriate drugs and diagnostics to meet the unique needs of children.
Overview of the Director, Pediatric & Adolescent HIV Role
We are hiring a Director, Pediatric & Adolescent HIV who will drive CHAI’s overall pediatric and adolescent HIV and eMTCT strategy, set ambitious goals, and support country-level implementation of the strategy to turn the vision into demonstrable results. The Director will lead a team focused on ensuring that CHAI’s response in the pediatric HIV space is comprehensive, cohesive, and achieves tangible results across key outcomes (such as testing coverage, case identification rates, treatment coverage, viral load coverage, retention in care, and viral load suppression). The Director is responsible for ensuring that children and adolescents living with HIV are always prioritized in CHAI’s overall HIV response. The Director will partner with various internal stakeholders at the global and country level to prioritize areas where CHAI could have a significant impact, build consensus and alignment on these priorities and goals, help develop fundraising efforts around those priorities, and collaborate with relevant individuals to designs program interventions to achieve those goals. The success of this position is defined by the demonstration of tangible improvements in key pediatric HIV outcomes in countries where CHAI is engaged. The Director will oversee CHAI’s pediatric program grant portfolio, work closely with internal partners, and coordinate with external partners to achieve program goals.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with deep passion and commitment to achieving ambitious goals for children and adolescents living with HIV. The right candidate will be a mission-driven person with outstanding leadership and management skills, extensive implementation experience in LMICs, exceptional strategic thinking and communication skills, and deep commitment to contributing towards achieving CHAI’s HIV strategic goals. The Director will be a seasoned, trusted leader who is expected to build strong relationships with CHAI country teams, Ministry of Health counterparts, and local and global partner organizations. The Director will build consensus among a range of stakeholders and independently find creative solutions to challenges that delay progress towards program goals. The Director must be able to function independently and flexibly, prioritize across multiple workstreams, lead a diverse team, and excel in working with CHAI country teams. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic.
This role will require up to 40% travel to program countries and key global stakeholder meetings. The Director base location is flexible (pending approvals). This role will report to the Senior Director, HIV Access Program.
