The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems in the developing world and expanding access to preventative health interventions such as care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, vaccines, malaria and other diseases. Currently, CHAI partners with governments in more than 25 countries, while more than 70 countries directly benefit from the low-priced drugs, diagnostic tests, and vaccines agreements that CHAI has negotiated. CHAI signed a memorandum of understanding with the Government of Zimbabwe in 2007 to provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Health and strengthen health systems. Since 2007, CHAI Zimbabwe’s operational portfolio has expanded to include: Laboratory Systems, PMTCT, Male Circumcision, Drug Access, Malaria and TB programs. In September 2014, CHAI Zimbabwe, together with three other CHAI country teams, will launch a new Paediatric HIV Program. This work continues CHAI’s legacy of commitment to accelerating access to quality HIV care and affordable formulations for paediatrics.
The Program Officer will lead the support for sub-national implementation for Zimbabwe’s new paediatric HIV initiative, which aims to strengthen identification of paediatric HIV and TB, improve retention along the eMTCT-Peds cascade and expand access to high quality paediatric HIV and TB services. These efforts will require extensive engagement with the Ministry of Health, other partner organizations and various teams within CHAI. The positions will be based in Harare and require extensive local travel.
We are seeking experienced, talented, highly motivated, and flexible individuals to support CHAI Zimbabwe in attaining its ambitious Paediatric HIV targets. CHAI places great value on personal qualities including resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic.
