Founded in 2002, by President William J. Clinton and Ira C. Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (“CHAI”) is a global health organization committed to saving lives, reducing the burden of disease and strengthening integrated health systems in the developing world.
CHAI’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.
Overview of the Role
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated and flexible individual to support Thailand’s Bureau of Vector Borne Disease’s (BVBD) malaria department as they scale up an electronic tool for malaria foci investigation. This person will be based in Bangkok, Thailand with travel to other provinces as needed.
This person will work closely with BVBD in collaboration with regional staff on the Malaria Analytics, Surveillance, and Technology (MAST) team to assist BVBD in ensuring an effective technology implementation – by solving technical and programmatic issues with the roll out as they arise, improving data visualization and utilization, and monitoring and evaluating system implementation appropriately.
CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities including resourcefulness, tenacity, independence, patience, humility, and strong work ethic.
