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
The Laboratory Services Team (LST) is a key source of support for Ministries of Health and CHAI's country teams, and works to address barriers to access and foster a healthy competitive marketplace for essential diagnostic testing. LST plays the lead role in coordinating work globally on access to diagnostics, working closely with diagnostics manufacturers, governments, and multilateral organizations to lower prices, increase access to testing, and accelerate the entry and uptake of new innovative products.
The Associate Director (AD) will support a large program of work focused on introducing innovative diagnostic products across sub-Saharan Africa. The AD will support the program directors to plan for and drive the project activities forward and manage the overall program operations.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding project and relationship management skills, cross-matrix experience, and strong communication skills. The candidate must be able to function independently and flexibly and have a strong commitment to excellence. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic.
