Since 2002, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, CHAI (formerly the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative), has been assisting developing countries in implementing large-scale, integrated HIV care, treatment, and prevention programs. CHAI is currently active in Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, and Eastern Europe. In support of national HIV/AIDS programs, CHAI provides technical assistance, mobilizes human and financial resources, and facilitates the sharing of best practices across projects. CHAI has also negotiated agreements with leading pharmaceutical companies that have lowered the cost of HIV/AIDS and malaria diagnostics and treatment in the developing world by 30-90%. Our ultimate objectives are to make high-quality HIV/AIDS and malaria care and treatment available to all who need it, and to partner with governments and other stakeholders to strengthen healthcare systems and develop sustainable strategies to overcome obstacles to scale-up.
In South Africa, CHAI is supporting the National Department of Health (NDOH) and the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) in its implementation of the National Strategic Plan for HIV, TB and STI (2012-2016) strategic objectives.
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with analytical skills, experience in health programme management and experience working within the public health system to serve as the Maternal and Child Health Analyst. The successful candidate will work across two programmes in CHAI, the Vaccines and Paediatric programmes. Work with the Vaccines programme will focus on the introduction and management of cold chain monitoring technologies, and analytical support of the Department of Health’s Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI). The Pediatric programme work will focus on the introduction of the Paediatric Blueprint for Action (BPA), a framework to improve paediatric care, and the Paediatric ART Clinical Stationery to monitor clinical outcomes in children. These projects will require the candidate to: provide technical guidance to CHAI and the Department of Health, provide training, monitor data to inform programme design, create data dashboards to monitor paediatric work in line with the BPA and provide general support with provincial rollout of strategies to improve child health. The Paediatric Clinical Advisor will report to the CHAI Vaccines and Paediatric Programme Managers.
