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 Ministry of Health (MoH) in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) strives to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by enabling equitable access to quality health services for their population as outlined in their Essential Health Care Package (EHCP). Over the past three years, CHAI has been partnering with the MoH to scale up delivery of the EHCP across all levels of care. This commitment is made against a backdrop of rising health care costs and uncertainty around the future availability of donor funding, given the countries Lower Middle-Income Country (LMIC) status. Acknowledging this, the MoH aims to employ effective, equitable, efficient and sustainable health care financing approaches and reforms such as national budget efficiency reforms to facilitate their movement towards UHC.
CHAI works on a day to day basis with MoH leadership to ensure that all available resources for health are used optimally, effectively and efficiently, in a coordinated way to move Eswatini closer to achieving UHC. To lead CHAI’s technical assistance to the MoH in this area, CHAI is seeking a highly motivated, entrepreneurial individual with outstanding planning, technical health financing, management, analytical and communication skills to serve as the Senior Manager for the Sustainable Health Financing (SHF) team.
This individual would need to manage a growing team and be able to shape CHAI’s engagement, and should therefore be technical as well as a strong strategic thinker. CHAI places great value on resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, flexibility, independence, energy, work ethic and humility.
