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 Program Officer will support the implementation of CHAI Zimbabwe’s continued pediatric HIV initiative, which aims to leverage upon the initial phase of this work conducted from 2014 to 2017. Phase 1 was focused on strengthening identification of pediatric HIV and TB, improving retention along the eMTCT-peds cascade and expanding access to high quality pediatric HIV and TB services. Phase 2 now strives to sustain the gains made under the initial phase and to concentrate on improving linkage to care and treatment retention for children living with HIV and AIDS (CALHIV). These efforts will require extensive engagement with the Ministry of Health, other partner organizations and various teams within CHAI. The position will be based in Harare and require extensive local travel.
We are seeking an experienced, talented, highly motivated, and flexible individual to support CHAI Zimbabwe in attaining its ambitious pediatric HIV targets. CHAI places great value on personal qualities including resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic.
