Overview

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.

 

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.

  • Participate in working group(s) to support evidence generation and use for PrEP and other combination prevention implementation
  • Continuously assist the MoHCC to review, consolidate and collate data on HIV prevention across different geographies to inform efficient and effective deployment of resources
  • Review and develop syntheses of qualitative and quantitative data to inform scale up of oral PrEP as part of a combination HIV prevention strategy, including costing of HIV prevention service delivery models
  • Be aware of developments in this fast-moving landscape and synthesize analyses and findings into reports and presentations that will be used as evidence and advocacy for HIV prevention
  • Perform any other duties as assigned by the program manager
