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: Health Systems Strengthening, Malaria Elimination, HIV and TB Access, and Vaccines.
As part of a five year Health Sector Reform, the Lao PDR Ministry of Health (MOH) is improving the quality of national strategic health information systems (HIS) across health programs and strengthening the supply chain system to improve access and rational use of critical medicines and diagnostics. Through the reforms, the MOH has developed, tested and refined a supply chain strengthening strategy, which includes the national roll-out of an electronic management information system (eLMIS). A key objective of the reform is to ensure the eLMIS is integrated effectively into the national health information system and that critical health information accessible through these systems are routinely utilized by each health program for planning and targeting resources, improving performance management of programs. CHAI’s Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) team has supported these efforts since 2014.
CHAI seeks a self-motivated individual with outstanding analytical and communication skills to contribute as an Analyst on CHAI’s cross-program Health Systems team to support the scale-up of the National Supply Chain Reform and to improve the utilization health information across health programs.
The Analyst will be based in Vientiane, Lao PDR, but will be required to travel within the country up to 30% of the time.
The Health Systems Analyst will support the Health Systems Strengthening team and MOH team in compiling and synthesizing data from the eLMIS and other health information systems to identify health facilities that require targeted follow-up, support the scale-up of the eLMIS, and build capacity of health care workers across programs to ensure data is utilized for strategic planning and driving program performance.
