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.
Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI)/Zambia’s Human Resources for Health (HRH) team works directly with the Ministry of Health (MoH) to: (i) expand the number of healthcare workers in the country, (ii) optimize the distribution of the health workforce to improve equity of access and meet the needs of communities, and (iii) enhance the productivity of the existing health workforce.
In partnership with Government, the Technical Advisor – Health Systems Strengthening will be responsible for leading implementation of CHAI’s (i) pre-service training programs for mid-level cadres and (ii) nursing/midwifery mentorship program. More specifically, the Technical Advisor – Health Systems Strengthening will lead implementation of the pre-service programs (e.g. Nurse, Midwife, Clinical Officer General and Anaesthesia, and Medical Licentiate training programs) in target training institutions and lead implementation of systems strengthening interventions to improve the performance of health workers in target facilities and districts in Muchinga, Northern and Luapula provinces.
