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 developed a case-based data system using OpenMRS for three programs – HIV (ART), MDR-TB, and Hepatitis. CHAI’s pilot testing of OpenMRS for HIV was initially done in 2015 at 4 government hospitals and scaled up to 61 facilities by May 2018. Continued scale up, plus a focus on data utilization, is necessary to ensure sustainability and a successful transition to the National AIDS Program (NAP).
The HIV Program Officer will be responsible for developing a number of work streams, in coordination with the country office, Ministry of Health and Sports, and CHAI’s Global team, aimed at 1) coordinating the development of an electronic patient management system (OpenMRS) for HIV/AIDS patients enrolled into care and treatment in Myanmar, in collaboration with the National AIDS program (NAP), WHO, UNICEF, and other relevant partners 2) scale up implementation nationwide, as per NAP’s plans 3) work closely with NAP to build capacity and sustainability of data utilization to improve the quality of patient care and to increase evidence-based decision making and follow through. The HIV Program Officer should be a highly motivated individual with outstanding analytical, problem-solving and communication skills. He/she is able to apply the insights to resource-limited settings and improve CHAI’s in-depth understanding of the challenges for health system strengthening development to drive global health policy. He/she reports to the Program Manager for project progress and ensuring the timely delivery of the project outcomes.
