South Africa
Full Time
Program (Division)
Infectious Disease - Global HIV Access Program


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:

Program and Position Overview


Although there has been a remarkable decline in new HIV infections over the last two decades, there has been stagnation in the reduction of new cases globally in recent years, as well as increases in new HIV infections among certain geographies and populations. Increased HIV treatment coverage and rollout of highly effective available interventions, such as voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) and oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) have contributed to progress reducing new infections. However, there is a clear need for new product options and more effective delivery models, alongside increased access to available interventions. Scaling up access to primary prevention interventions that meet the needs of those at risk of HIV is essential to reaching and maintaining epidemic control. Achieving global HIV targets will not be possible without acceptable products and person-centered health systems. Targeted interventions are needed to address the individual and systemic barriers that limit the impact of proven HIV prevention interventions in low-and middle-income countries.


CHAI is working with range of partners, including governments, communities, and the private sector to accelerate the development, introduction, and scale up of effective HIV prevention interventions while strengthening health systems to support sustainable, resilient prevention responses.


CHAI is seeking a highly qualified individual for the role of Manager, HIV Prevention. The Manager will report to the HIV Prevention Director and will focus on efforts to coordinate and execute market shaping and supply side interventions to accelerate access to long-acting HIV prevention interventions, with a particular focus on long-acting injectable cabotegravir (CAB-LA). The Manager will also support other relevant workstreams across the HIV team and ongoing and new fundraising efforts.


This role will work closely with cross-cutting CHAI teams, CHAI country teams, and key external partners, including donors to execute key grant management functions, including driving strategy development and execution of essential partner capacity building across numerous functional and technical areas; developing reports, presentations, and deliverables; supporting rigorous and routine external partner engagement; supporting workplan development; managing and monitoring project milestones, timelines, and deliverables; building and managing relationships with senior internal and external stakeholders; and developing and coordinating reporting inputs. The Manager is responsible for staying up to date with the latest prevention market trends, evidence, and knowledge to serve as a resource externally and across both the prevention team and other CHAI teams.

Candidates must showcase the ability to manage complex workstreams and stakeholder relationships, anticipate risks, and execute mitigation actions. Essential skills include outstanding organizational and project management skills, excellent communication, diplomacy, leadership, and strong analytic abilities. The ideal candidate will work independently, operate effectively in an environment with ambiguity and uncertainty, demonstrate a commitment to excellence and attention to detail, and exhibit leadership in a multicultural professional setting.
