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: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org
CHAI’s integrated sexual, reproductive, maternal and neonatal health (SRMNH) approach is aimed at dramatically reducing unintended pregnancies, maternal and neonatal deaths and stillbirths. This approach begins with reaching adolescents with reproductive health education and services, and continues with supporting women through their reproductive years to ensure every woman is able to realize her reproductive intentions including: avoid unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, terminate a pregnancy safely under a country’s legal framework, have a healthy pregnancy and childbirth, see her newborn thrive from birth to childhood, and space and limit births. Underlying CHAI’s approach is the development of effective, government-led management systems that serve as the backbone towards facilitating program implementation, support transition and enable governments to sustain progress, while also providing for the continued growth and evolution of a country’s SRMNH program.
CHAI Zambia is seeking a Technical Advisor, to be based in Zambia. The Technical Advisor will provide technical oversight for the establishment and maintenance of a community-based maternal and neonatal health surveillance system to track maternal and neonatal mortality and stillbirths.
The Technical Advisor will be part of the SRMNH team, and will report to the Senior Program Manager for SRMNH. The Technical Advisor will work closely with the local program teams, CHAI country teams doing similar work in other locations, and CHAI’s global Applied Analytics Team (AAT). The Technical Advisor will also work in close collaboration with the government and will interact on a regular basis with donors, NGOs, companies, academic and research institutions and civil society.
The position is subject to donor approval and funding availability.
