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 team in Sierra Leone has been engaged by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MoHS) to support the health sector’s recovery after the devastating Ebola crisis. The MoHS is taking this opportunity to plan strategically and ambitiously for the future of the health system and have asked CHAI to support these efforts, with a particular focus on strengthening the supply chain for drugs and medical supplies.
The Supply Chain team provides support to the Directorate of Drugs and Medical Supplies and the caretaker environment currently overseeing the Free Healthcare Initiative (FHCI) supply chain. FHCI provides children under 5, pregnant women, lactating mothers, and other target populations with free health services in an effort to address Sierra Leone’s high child and maternal mortality rate. Our team works to ensure that a well-functioning system delivers the right drugs, in the right quantity, at the right time to health facilities so that health workers in turn can deliver the highest quality care to patients. The Senior Analyst will join the team to support the Directorate of Drugs & Medical Supplies (DDMS), the District Health Management Teams (DHMTs), and various national health programs to optimize supply chain performance and improve the Sierra Leone’s health logistics capabilities in the long term.
CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic. We seek a highly committed and adaptable individual with a track record of delivering quality results with limited resources. The individual must be able to function independently and flexibly in a swift manner. CHAI hires exceptional individuals who can drive work plans to completion and meet milestones with little daily supervision.
