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.
The hallmark of CHAI’s approach is simultaneous and intensive engagement on the demand and supply sides of the market. On the demand side, CHAI’s country teams help governments to overcome barriers to scale up treatment and prevention programs. Meanwhile, the CHAI global access teams work to address supply-side barriers to access and foster a healthy marketplace to ensure the sustainable supply of essential medicines and diagnostic commodities. CHAI works to attract new suppliers, lower drug prices, encourage the adoption of stringent quality standards, and facilitate the uptake of important new or improved products.
CHAI’s Access Program works to address barriers to commodity access and to foster a healthy marketplace, fundamentally changing the economics of global health to ensure the sustainable supply of essential medicines and diagnostics. By securing lower prices for key commodities and improving laboratories in the developing world, we are helping patients access the treatment, care, and prevention services they need.
CHAI is seeking a highly qualified individual to fill the position of Coordinator for the HIV Access Program (HAP). The Coordinator will support the team operations and program management, which aim to support Ministries of Health in scaling access to optimal antiretroviral treatment and improve patient outcomes.
The role will involve building and managing relationships with a broad set of internal and external stakeholders and liaising with various CHAI teams to ensure smooth operations of the program. This role will require the Coordinator to develop familiarity with HAP both globally and at the country level. The Coordinator will also provide support to HAP’s Senior Associate, Program Manager, and Senior Director to ensure effective implementation and monitoring of program operations.
The Coordinator will need to possess analytical ability, excellent communication skills, exceptional diplomacy and tact, and organizational and project management skills. The candidate must demonstrate an ability to assess issues, think creatively to resolve problems, and determine when to escalate to other team members. The candidate must be able to function independently and flexibly, operate effectively in an environment with a high level of ambiguity and uncertainty, and have a strong commitment to excellence and attention to detail. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: proactive, resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, entrepreneurship, and strong work ethic.
