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. 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 Sexual and Reproductive Health program aims to reduce unintended pregnancies and related impact of maternal mortality and morbidity by increasing access to essential reproductive health products and services in partnership with governments by pursuing global and country-focused market-shaping opportunities and in-country engagement around guidelines, registration, tendering, procurement and service delivery.
In addition, CHAI aims to strengthen government health systems and build the capabilities of ministries of health to deliver robust, integrated reproductive health programs including to adolescent girls and young women.
Underlying CHAI’s approach is the development of effective, government-led management systems that serve as the backbone towards facilitating program implementation, support transition and enable governments to sustain progress, while also providing for the continued growth and evolution of a country’s SRMNH program.
CHAI is currently implementing a sexual and reproductive health program, working in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MOH) Department of Reproductive Health and implementing partners. The program aims to increase access to a broad contraceptive method-mix, through accelerating the introduction, uptake and scale up of new contraceptive commodities.
CHAI Malawi therefore seeks a motivated individual to support the implementation of this program, working closely with MOH to ensure successful introduction and scale up of these products. The Program Associate will be based in Lilongwe, Malawi with up to 50% travel in-country, and will report to the Senior Program Manager, SRMNH.
