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: 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.
About the Team:
Accurate diagnosis requires the right mix of affordable and high-quality technology and health system efficiency. Not only is it important to choose the right technologies for each healthcare setting, there are also several essential health services that need to be functioning for testing to be delivered effectively. Many countries are still working to establish both the technology infrastructure and the associated health systems required. As such, testing remains a critical gap for many diseases.
CHAI’s Global Diagnostics Team works closely with governments, manufacturers, donors and other agencies to improve access to high-quality, affordable diagnostics in low- and middle-income countries. CHAI takes a patient-centric and holistic approach that focuses on introducing innovative diagnostic technologies and delivery systems that are proven through evidence generation, catalytic adoption, and scale-up by national governments. CHAI helps establish the conditions to support high-quality diagnostic systems, especially for primary health care. We support governments to build diagnostic networks that maximize testing coverage and referral to care while reducing costs. Our focus is on accelerating access to high-quality and affordable diagnostics through coordinated engagement with both the supply and demand sides of the market.
CHAI operates across seven countries in the Asia-Pacific region, and has ongoing diagnostics programs and priorities in several of these countries. In order to support the diagnostics program in the region, CHAI is seeking to hire a highly motivated individual with strong analytical abilities, and superior problem-solving and communication skills.
