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 has partnered with the Government in Lao PDR since 2014, supporting the MOH across several health programs: Supply Chain Strengthening, Malaria Elimination, HIV and TB Access, and Vaccines. In 2017, CHAI is building upon these programs and relationship with the Maternal and Child Health Center (MCHC) to support the Government to accelerate efforts to address gaps in SRH services and improve health outcomes for women and adolescent girls.
CHAI seeks a self-motivated individual with outstanding analytical, problem-solving, and communication skills to help rapidly increase women’s access to Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services and reduce maternal mortality in Lao PDR as an Associate on CHAI’s SRH team.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) in Lao has made significant progress in increasing access to SRH services. However, gaps still exist. Persistent access barriers to SRH services contribute to a high maternal deaths rate and a high adolescent birth rate. CHAI is partnering with the Ministry of Health in Lao PDR to implement a broad range of activities aimed at significantly increasing access to SRH services nationally for women and adolescent girls.
The SRH Associate will support the SRH program team in compiling and synthesizing data to support the Ministry of Health to create informed strategic plans and ensure that these plans are translated into strong operational plans at the subnational level and are implemented effectively. Additionally, the Associate will lead monitoring and evaluation program activities. The Associate will be based in Vientiane, Lao PDR, but will be required to travel within the country up to 25% of the time.
