CHAI launched its Viral Hepatitis program in 2015 with the goal of catalyzing public sector HCV screening and treatment programs in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Following the launch of hepatitis C programs in seven countries (Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Vietnam), CHAI is additionally applying the techniques it has used successfully to improve access to HIV/AIDS and malaria treatment in developing countries to aim for the elimination of hepatitis C and the achievement of a hepatitis B-free generation. The program continues to focus on lowering the cost of diagnosis and treatment, while supporting ministries of health to implement smart, data-driven strategies for scaling up access to services. Globally, the team interacts with donors, manufacturers, multilateral agencies, non-governmental and community organizations, and other partners to identify and implement necessary market-based and program interventions. In focal countries, CHAI’s work ranges from helping governments select and source the right medicines and diagnostics, training health care workers in screening and treatment, designing the right service delivery mechanisms, implementing monitoring and evaluation systems, and mobilizing financing for program implementation.
As part of the Hepatitis Country Support Team, the Associate will support the implementation and scale-up of CHAI’s hepatitis country programs in the Southeast Asia (SEA) region. The Associate will support CHAI teams in countries as they begin to scale-up public viral hepatitis programs, helping to optimize policies and processes to ensure access to high quality hepatitis drugs and diagnostic testing. The Associate will also support the development of programmatic tools (costing, forecasting, supply planning, M&E) and financing strategies that can be used in the development of public treatment programs. Significant travel (~40%) will be required for this position when border restrictions ease. The Associate will report to the Hepatitis Country Support Manager for Southeast Asia and will be based in Vietnam.
