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.

Sexual Reproductive Team Overview
The Department of Health (DOH) has made significant progress in increasing access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services in South Africa. However, gaps still exist, maternal and child mortality is still a significant contributor to overall mortality rates and wide variations persist in quality and access to comprehensive, integrated healthcare services for women and adolescents. To address these challenges, CHAI’s SRH Team is supporting the DoH at national and provincial levels to implement a broad range of activities aimed at significantly increasing access to SRH services for women and adolescents.
CHAI seeks a highly entrepreneurial, energetic and self-motivated individual to support CHAI’s SRH Program with the goal to increase access to SRH services. The SRH Associate will join a diverse team to support the DoH to create evidence based strategic plans and ensure that these plans are translated into strong operational plans and are implemented effectively. The ideal candidate must be technically sound, be self-directed, be conversant with the health sector in South Africa, and be able to adapt to the differing needs of the programmes.
