Founded in 2002, by President William J. Clinton and Ira C. Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (“CHAI”) is a global health organization committed to saving lives, reducing the burden of disease and strengthening integrated health systems in the developing world.
The Ministry of Health (MoH) in Swaziland strives to achieve Universal Health Coverage by enabling equitable access to quality health services for their population as outlined in their Essential Health Care Package (EHCP). This commitment is made against a backdrop of rising health care costs and uncertainty around the future availability of donor funding. Acknowledging this, the MoH aims to employ effective, equitable, efficient and sustainable health care financing approaches and reforms such as national budget reform to facilitate their movement towards UHC.
CHAI works on a day to day basis with MoH leadership to ensure that all available resources for health are used optimally, effectively and efficiently, in a coordinated way to move Swaziland closer to achieving UHC. To lead CHAI’s technical assistance to the MoH in this area, CHAI is seeking a highly motivated, entrepreneurial individual with outstanding planning, technical health financing, management, analytical and communication skills to serve as the Senior Program Manager for the Sustainable Health Financing (SHF) team.
Key responsibilities will include, but are not be limited to, the following:
This individual would need to manage a growing team and be able to shape CHAI’s engagement, and should therefore be technical as well as a strong strategic thinker. CHAI places great value on resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, flexibility, independence, energy, work ethic and humility.
