Under the FASTER, program CHAI will leverage on the successes of the current pediatric HIV program, its close and longstanding relationship with the Zambia Ministry of Health and global expertise to work closely with the Ministry and in-country implementing partners in accelerating progress towards the 90-90-90 targets utilizing ‘smart’ strategies for scale-up of child and adolescent HIV care and treatment services for Zambia.
CHAI seeks a full-time Senior Program Officer, Pediatric and Adolescent HIV, to work with the broader FASTER Initiative team to be based in Lusaka, Zambia.
