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.
In 2005, CHAI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Malawi (GoM) to strengthen health systems in the most challenged districts, provide national support to HIV/AIDS drug pricing and programmatic work, support the pilot and scale-up of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) initiatives, expand access to ART for children, strengthen Malawi’s lab system, and scale-up an integrated nutrition program for children. CHAI’s support to Malawi has expanded to include Human Resources for Health (HRH), Vaccines (pneumococcal and rotavirus), and Health Financing.
At the request of our partner governments, CHAI has developed a health financing program across Africa. Currently, in developing countries, just 40% of the poor have access to basic health services, such as delivering babies in a safe environment. While policymakers are committed to universal health coverage, past growth in funding for health is beginning to slow, resulting in difficult decisions and trade-offs. Our health financing teams work with policymakers in Ministries of Health and key stakeholders to remove financing as a barrier to increased coverage of life saving interventions. We provide decision makers with the necessary programmatic and financial information for evidence-based planning and resource allocation. Furthermore, we help governments move towards a sustainable funding model that is increasingly nationally-owned and managed.
The Assistant Accountant shall report to the Accountant, will work with all CHAI local and global teams in a collaborative manner, and will promote a collegial and participatory approach to financial reporting and program management.
The Assistant Accountant will be based in the Lilongwe Office.
