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.

The team in Sierra Leone was initially engaged by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MoHS) to support the health sector’s recovery after the devastating Ebola crisis focusing on two program areas - Human Resources for Health and Supply Chain Strengthening. Supporting the improvement of Logistics Management Information Systems (LMIS) and electronic Logistics Management Information Systems (eLMIS) forms an important component of this supply chain work.
Our team works to ensure that a well-functioning logistics management information system is in place to help the MoHS to be able to deliver the right drugs, in the right quantity, at the right time to health facilities so that health workers in turn can deliver the highest quality care to patients. This role will form part of a team offering support to the Directorate of Drugs & Medical Supplies (DDMS), the District Health Management Teams (DHMTs), National Medical Supplies Agency (NMSA) and various national health programs to optimise the supply chain through the strengthening of LMIS systems that will lead to increased availability of information on drug movement, level, and availability. This role is aimed at supporting the rollout of mSupply at district level, providing improvements in data reporting at all levels, and working with the team to identify and effect changes in LMIS report functionality within the national DHIS2 platform.
CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic. We seek a highly motivated and adaptable individual with a track record of delivering quality results with limited resources. The individual must be able to function independently and flexibly in a swift manner. CHAI hires exceptional individuals who can drive work plans to completion and meet milestones with little daily supervision.
