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.

In 2006, CHAI signed an MOU with the Malawi government to strengthen health systems in the most challenged districts, provide national support to HIV/AIDS drug pricing and programmatic work, support the pilot and scale-up of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) initiatives, expand access to ART for children, strengthen Malawi’s lab system, and scale up an integrated nutrition program for children. Since then, CHAI’s support to Malawi has expanded to include Human Resources for Health; Health Financing; Pediatric HIV and TB; Reproductive, Maternal and Neonatal Health; eHealth; and HIV Prevention Program.
Under the leadership of Department of HIV&AIDS, Malawi made significant progress in HIV treatment programs but a clear gap still exists in effectively implementing its national prevention policy. HIV Prevention Market Manager Program Associate at CHAI, Malawi will work with Department of HIV&AIDS, National AIDS commission and other Non-government organizations and Stakeholders to close the existing prevention policy gap and strengthen the national prevention program. The Associate will also work to identify and analyze the gaps and barriers existing in the system to effectively introduce and scale up latest biomedical interventions such as Oral PrEP in Malawi.
The Associate will work on projects quantifying the policy adoption and implementation gaps, helping the government make evidence based policy decisions. The assignment will also include providing technical support and assistance to the MoH and National AIDS commission on planning, costing and budgeting programmatic activities along with conducting assessments with support from local data collectors to prepare policy landscape for current and upcoming interventions for HIV prevention.
CHAI is seeking an experienced, highly motivated, and creative individual with entrepreneurial mind set to contribute quantitative and qualitative analysis and strategic thinking to CHAI’s HIV Prevention program as it enters its next phase and seeks to reach ambitious targets. The associate will be responsible for production of high quality deliverables and analyses tailored to the audience and designed for impact.
The HIV Prevention Associate will be based in Lilongwe, Malawi with up to 10 -20% travel in-country, and will report directly to the Program Manager, HIV Prevention (PxMM) and HIV Drug Access Program (HAP).
