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%.
CHAI first partnered with the Government of Cambodia in February 2005 to enable the country access to affordable drug and lab commodity prices through CHAI’s Procurement Consortium. CHAI provides technical assistance to the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Dermatology and STDs (NCHADS) for projects related to logistics, supply chain management, laboratory strengthening, pediatric care and treatment scale-up and prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT). Following a successful scale-up of PMTCT services Cambodia endeavours to eliminate mother to child transmission of HIV by the year 2020.
Cambodia’s elimination strategy includes a demonstration of Treatment as Prevention (TasP) among pregnant women and sero-discordant couples. This initiative builds on strengths of the existing elimination of mother-to-child-transmission (eMTCT) framework and Continuum of Care (CoC) in Cambodia. Program areas that require implementation support under this effort will include clinical care, labs and diagnostics, data management, national coordination, and guidelines revision.
CHAI is currently seeking a candidate for the position of Program Officer (PO) to work with the HIV team in Cambodia. Reporting to the HIV Program Manager, the Phnom Penh based PO will support the launch and implementation of a national strategy to eliminate new HIV infections and HIV-related deaths, with a focus on TasP and elimination of mother-to-child-transmission. A minimum commitment of 12 months is preferred for this role.
This job description may be modified at any time after consultation and agreement between the post holder and the Program Manager.
This position is open to international and national applicants.
