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.
CHAI's Global Markets Team (GMT) is responsible for envisioning, executing, and monitoring market shaping interventions aimed at improving the efficiency of health commodity markets for lower income countries. These interventions range from traditional policy-led and grant-financed initiatives such as pooled procurement, coordinated ordering, strategic demand forecasting, and regulatory harmonization to more innovative credit enhancement mechanisms such as volume guarantees (VGs), advance market commitments (AMCs), and working capital facilities. GMT collaborates closely with internal and external stakeholders to evaluate the public health impact of a proposed intervention and ensure alignment with current and future policy goals.

Overview of Role
The Senior Associate will lead market shaping and market dynamics activities, focusing primarily on HIV, HCV, and TB drugs and diagnostics. His/her primary objective will be to build, maintain, and update CHAI's global supply-and demand-side strategy, lead negotiations, and collaborate with a range of internal and external stakeholders to design and implement programs to ensure sufficient supply of affordable and high-quality commodities to low- and middle-income markets.
We are seeking a highly-motivated, entrepreneurial individual with outstanding problem-solving ability and communication skills. The Senior Associate must be able to function independently, and have a strong commitment to excellence. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness, humility, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic.
This role has flexibility to be based on the East Coast of the United States or in Johannesburg, South Africa.
