    The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc.

    Recent breakthroughs in HIV treatment and prevention research have created unprecedented opportunities to curb new HIV infections, save lives and reduce the global investment required for the HIV response. The HIV epidemic is already being affected by the use of existing biomedical tools – particularly expanded HIV testing linkage to effective treatment and prevention, including antiretroviral treatment (ART) for people living with HIV, Option B+, voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC), male and female condoms, and more recently, oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). In addition, dynamic activity is continuing across the biomedical prevention research pipeline and even longstanding prevention options like condoms are undergoing innovation.

     

    As HIV Prevention Market Manager, AVAC in collaboration with CHAI will work with the Gates Foundation, other funders, the array of product developers, country governments, and other key prevention partners to ensure coordination of market understanding; timely, efficient and effective product delivery for HIV prevention; and improved understanding of user perspectives within the product development process.

     

    CHAI is seeking a dynamic, results-oriented individual with strong quantitative and analytical skills to conduct analyses and syntheses to inform work across the different pillars of this work. Although initial competencies required for this work will be technical and analytical, the individual must be able to quickly broaden their capacity and understanding of the HIV prevention space within a collaborative team environment. Candidates must have excellent communication and writing skills, be extremely self-motivated and have a strong commitment to excellence.

     

    The position will require travel to meet key stakeholders, particularly the Ministry of Health and Child Care and key implementing partners within the HIV prevention space.
