Clinton Health Access Initiative

About the organization

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.

Duties

CHAI is seeking an Associate to provide technical assistance in support of the CARAMAL project, specifically focusing on countries other than Nigeria, DRC and Uganda. The Associate will work closely with CHAI country teams, CARAMAL consortium partners, and external stakeholders to ensure that lessons learned through the CARAMAL project are disseminated to non-project countries. The Associate must have excellent communication skills and cultural sensitivity. In addition, the Associate must have strong organizational and project management skills, and be capable of conducting rapid quantitative analyses and communicating results on a regular basis in a clear and concise manner to colleagues and partners. The successful candidate will be able to function efficiently in a semi-independent setting, and thus will be a self-motivated individual capable of managing multiple tasks at once and making sound independent decisions regarding data analysis. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities including resourcefulness, tenacity, independence, patience, humility, and strong work ethic.

This position will be based in CHAI's office in Kigali, but could be based in another program country pending leadership approval.
