Innovations in HIV testing have resulted in increased population coverage of HIV testing services (HTS) and identifications of people living with undiagnosed HIV, while recent breakthroughs in HIV treatment and prevention research have created unprecedented opportunities to curb new HIV infections, save lives and reduce the global investment required for the HIV response. The HIV epidemic is already being affected by the use of existing biomedical tools – particularly expanded HIV testing linkage to effective treatment and prevention, including antiretroviral treatment (ART) for people living with HIV, Option B+, voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC), male and female condoms, and more recently, oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). In addition, dynamic activity is continuing in HIV testing innovation and across the biomedical prevention research pipeline - even longstanding prevention options like condoms are undergoing innovation.
CHAI seeks a Manager with exceptional team and process management skills, quantitative ability, and experience working with government departments to support strategic, operational and policy shifts. The Manager will be responsible for leading CHAI’s work in HIV Testing and Prevention Markets. For HIV testing this will include supporting the inistry in evaluating innovations in HIV testing, incorporating these into routine reporting systems, and reviewing the national targets annually. For Prevention, the Manager is expected to lead support to the Ministry of Heath and Child Care (MoHCC) in accelerating the introduction of new and appropriate prevention interventions such as oral PrEP, ensuring lessons learned are documented for future product introduction, and providing analyses to support sustainable financing for HIV prevention in Zimbabwe. The Manager will ensure timely execution of quality deliverables against aggressive deadlines for both work streams while identifying, building and maintaining key relationships in the MoHCC, CHAI Zimbabwe, and the global team. The Manager will lead a team of four: two Prevention analysts and two HTS program officers.
Ability to work independently and effectively in high-pressure, fast-paced environment and handle multiple tasks simultaneously whilst mentoring a team to perform consistently
