Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) has launched an ambitious effort to scale up access to treatment for diarrhea and pneumonia, which combined, kill over 1.5 million children every year. Working with the governments of five high-burden countries and leading global institutions, CHAI’s Essential Medicines team is supporting intensified efforts at both global and country levels to plan, resource, and implement effective interventions for scaling-up access to treatment for these conditions – specifically zinc and ORS for diarrhea, and amoxicillin and oxygen for pneumonia. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Essential Medicines team has expanded its oxygen work to over 25 countries, supporting pandemic response efforts while strengthening long-term oxygen systems planning.
CHAI seeks a Procurement Associate to support the Essential Medicines team, CHAI country teams, and other stakeholders. This position is intended to support the procurement and engineering workstreams of the Global Essential Medicines team. Through rigorous analysis, the Associate will work alongside program teams to collaborate on high-impact strategies in program countries in a globally complex landscape. This position intends to support several country teams at various stages of implementation, with a range of programmatic needs. The level of responsibility for execution will vary, from research/drafting of materials to coordination of activities to implementation support.
Please note that the location for this position is flexible and can be based in any CHAI Program Countries depending on Country Leadership approval.
