Clinton Health Access Initiative

Senior Associate, Market Dynamics - Short Term

United States
Temporary | Full-Time
Program (Division)
Non Communicable Diseases - Vaccines Market Team


The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to our mission of saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries. We work at the invitation of governments to support them and the private sector to create and sustain high-quality health systems. 


CHAI was founded in 2002 in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic with the goal of dramatically reducing the price of life-saving drugs and increasing access to these medicines in the countries with the highest burden of the disease. Over the following two decades, CHAI has expanded its focus. Today, along with HIV, we work in conjunction with our partners to prevent and treat infectious diseases such as COVID-19, malaria, tuberculosis, and hepatitis. Our work has also expanded into cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and other non-communicable diseases, and we work to accelerate the rollout of lifesaving vaccines, reduce maternal and child mortality, combat chronic malnutrition, and increase access to assistive technology. We are investing in horizontal approaches to strengthen health systems through programs in human resources for health, digital health, and health financing. With each new and innovative program, our strategy is grounded in maximizing sustainable impact at scale, ensuring that governments lead the solutions, that programs are designed to scale nationally, and learnings are shared globally.  


At CHAI, our people are our greatest asset, and none of this work would be possible without their talent, time, dedication and passion for our mission and values. We are a highly diverse team of enthusiastic individuals across 40 countries with a broad range of skillsets and life experiences. CHAI is deeply grounded in the countries we work in, with majority of our staff based in program countries. Learn more about our exciting work:


Overview of Role


CHAI is seeking a Senior Associate to support a market dynamics ecosystem gap analysis.  The term “market dynamics” (“MD”) refers to the interrelation of market structure (actors and products), actions (such as financing or sharing information) and market outcomes (price, supply, quality, sustainability). Since these factors interrelate dynamically, it is possible for a given entity to take deliberate strategic actions to improve market outcomes for its own benefit (or, in the case of a funder, for that of its recipients) or for the benefit of the entire market. The Senior Associate will support the development of a framework for analyzing and categorizing the MD ecosystem of partners, donors and participants through desktop research, stakeholder interviews and investment analysis of donors, suppliers and buyers.  The work will require cross-CHAI support as well as extensive engagement with external MD partners and funders.


The role is a great opportunity for a candidate with an analytical mind to learn about the MD eco-system and identify opportunities to improve it.  Capable candidates will be able to build networks with a large number of potential partners and establish themselves as thought leaders in this critical public health space.


Team is flexible to other base locations pending country leadership approval. This is a 6 month short term position. This role will require up to 25% travel within the United States, Europe, and Africa. 


We are seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding analytical, strategic, communication and teamwork skills. The successful candidate will adhere to the core CHAI values of resourcefulness, entrepreneurialism, flexibility, independence, humility, and work ethic. The Senior Associate will report to the project’s Senior Advisor. Responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Desktop research covering the reports and results from across the MD ecosystem including relevant academic literature
  • Supporting the development of a framework and unified set of terminology and vocabulary
  • Development of an in-depth interview guide for use in qualitative engagement with stakeholders

  • Coordination with country teams on key demand generation work and buyer activities
  • Preparation and production of final report, recommendations and analysis
  • Development of concept notes and new project proposals in follow up
  • Any other duties as required


  • Minimum Bachelor’s degree with strong academic performance required

  • Exceptional analytical, research and presentation skills for both qualitative and quantitative data
  • Clear strategic thinker with very strong problem-solving skills
  • Excellent proficiency in MS Excel, PowerPoint and Word
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English with the ability to represent CHAI externally; fluency in other languages is a plus
