Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is exploring ways of making a transformational impact in the nutritional status of children in high-burden countries. The work in chronic malnutrition involves development of clear country nutrition strategy through exploring potential collaborations with governments, NGO partners, donors and nutrition product and process manufacturers to develop and deploy evidence-based forms of nutrition delivery. This work will include performing an analysis of market opportunities, competitive landscape, regulatory issues and physical requirements for the product and devising a strategy for optimal product introduction and investment.
As part of initiatives in acute malnutrition, CHAI is also exploring the potential to apply its expertise in market-shaping for anti-retrovirals (ARVs) to similarly shape the global market for therapeutic food commodities. This will include identifying key components in the production of therapeutic food products and exploring opportunities for cost-reductions with increases in scale. CHAI will complement the existing efforts in mapping suppliers of therapeutic food products to identify local suppliers, in the public and private sectors, to manufacture high-quality, affordable products at scale. The analysis will also identify constraints and opportunities of manufacturing at various points in the distribution chain viz, state, district and sub-district levels.
The Volunteer – Nutrition will be responsible for identifying and building new streams of work in the nutrition space by taking potential ideas to scale in addressing the under-nutrition problem globally. This position will work closely with members of country teams in India and Africa to understand the key barriers to scaling up nutrition interventions and will propose potential solutions that address these barriers.
