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.

Since 2012, the health financing program in Zambia has been supporting the government to improve resource allocation, financial management, and service delivery outcomes. In April this year, Parliament passed the National Health Insurance (NHI) Act with the stated aims of providing for sound financing of the health system, universal access to quality insured health care services, and the set-up of an associated agency and fund.
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding technical capabilities to support the Ministry of Health (MOH) in the early stages of the NHI design and implementation. The Associate will report to the Health Financing Program Manager and will work closely with the Health Financing Unit at MOH to generate evidence needed to make critical policy decisions on insurance roll-out.
