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’s global malaria and neglected tropical disease (NTD) program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their programs and reduce the burden of preventable, treatable diseases. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards elimination of malaria and NTDs in the long term.
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual to work as the Malaria Strategy and Finance Associate to help countries in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), Southeast Asia achieve historic malaria elimination. Malaria in these countries is an urgent global priority because of the presence of Artemisinin drug resistance, which, if it further spread from the region, could undermine global progress against the disease. The role would specifically focus on working with government malaria programs in Cambodia, Vietnam and potentially Myanmar with their national strategic evaluation and planning, and then using this strategy to help align the resources available from the Global Fund.
As a member of the CHAI’s Global Malaria Program, the Associate will work alongside CHAI’s technical and country experts to support government to conduct strategic reviews of the national malaria program, write the reports, and create a costing model to assess required financial resources. The Associate will further assist the government with a cost optimization analysis for health strategies and contribute to forecasting of resource needs. The Associate will report to the Senior Manager of the CHAI Global Malaria Management, Strategy, Finance Team, and will work closely with CHAI regional technical team and country malaria teams. 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. The position will be based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia with potential international travels to other countries in the GMS.
