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.

Between July 2016 and February 2017, CHAI conducted an extensive scoping exercise under a grant awarded by Irish Aid to further understanding of the maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) space in Zimbabwe as part of a wider equitable access to quality healthcare initiative in Southern Africa (including Lesotho, Zimbabwe and South Africa). Following this, CHAI has been awarded a subsequent 6-month grant from Irish Aid to build upon the support to the Zimbabwean Ministry of Health and Child Care (MOHCC) to achieve the goals of their recently released Reproductive, Maternal, Neonatal, Child and Adolescent Health and Nutrition (RMNCAH&N, 2017-2021) strategy in which the MOHCC outlines their commitment to driving down maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality, and engender an impactful and sustained comprehensive MNCH program. This support to MOHCC is through a comprehensive strategy that focuses on averting the preventable deaths that can occur in the 24-48 hour window around the birth process. CHAI’s strategy incorporates innovative and simple interventions that are necessary to deliver straightforward results and improve health outcomes for mothers and their infants.
The Analyst will be a critical contributor to CHAI Zimbabwe’s MNCH initiative, the ultimate goal of which is to support MOHCC to achieve the ambitious goals set for maternal and neonatal mortality reduction, as outlined in its RMNCA&N strategy. These efforts will require extensive engagement with the MOHCC, other partner organizations and various teams within CHAI. The position will be based in Harare and will require local and international travel.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding credentials, analytical ability, and strong communication skills. The Analyst must be able to function independently and flexibly and have a strong commitment to excellence. CHAI places great value on personal qualities including resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy and work ethic.
