The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance. For more information, please visit:


CHAI teams work in partnership with governments, partners, and other major stakeholders to identify the key obstacles to access and scale-up of essential health services, and to develop sustainable strategies to overcome them. One of the hallmarks of CHAI is simultaneous and intensive engagement on the demand and supply sides of the market to improve access to essential medicines for patients in developing countries. CHAI works to address supply-side barriers to access and to foster a healthy marketplace to ensure the sustainable supply of essential medicines and diagnostics at lower prices. Furthermore, CHAI partners with National governments to strengthen the management systems required to deliver treatment - by scaling up and strengthening care and treatment programs, procurement and supply chain management.


The TB Associate will be a critical contributor to CHAI's TB initiatives, which aim to ensure sustainable and broad access to quality care across South Africa. The Access Associate will be responsible for a wide variety of tasks, from quantitative and business analysis to collaborating with stakeholders to build workable and sustainable solutions to strengthen healthcare systems in South Africa.
