Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses. Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management. By working in association with governments and other NGO partners, CHAI is focused on large scale impact and, to date, CHAI has secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries. In addition, CHAI's teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective treatment and care.
In 2006, CHAI was invited by the Government of Liberia to partner in scaling up the national care and treatment plan for Liberians living with HIV/AIDS. Since then, CHAI has developed a strong relationship with the Ministry of Health (MOHSW) and supports efforts to improve systematic challenges, such as supply chain management and health financing, as well as programmatic efforts focused on HIV/AIDS, malaria, and maternal and neonatal health.
Over 200 million women around the world have an unmet need for family planning, indicating they would like to stop or limit childbearing, but do not have access to methods to do so. Increasing access to family planning has the potential to reduce maternal and infant mortality, reduce the number of deaths due to unsafe abortion, and improve the health outcomes of women and families overall.
Long-acting and reversible contraception (LARC), including implants and IUCDs, are highly effective family planning methods. Following dramatic price reductions for implants negotiated in 2013, CHAI is collaborating closely with Ministries of Health to coordinate safe, rapid, and evidence-based scale up of LARC services to enable complete method choice. CHAI’s work focuses on helping Ministries conduct and utilize analyses of human resource (HR) needs and supply chain performance to identify and cost gaps, plan programming to address these gaps, coordinate targeted implementation and follow-up, and monitor and troubleshoot LARC scale-up.
In Liberia, CHAI is working with the Ministry of Health (MOHSW) to ensure a coordinated approach to improving HR deployment and the supply chain for family planning. CHAI is looking for a Family Planning Analyst to provide support to the MOHSW to assemble, organize, and analyze data, generate evidence, plan programs, and coordinate partners to rapidly and efficiently expand access to family planning services, including LARC.The Analyst will be based in-country and will report to the Country Program Manager. Occasional travel in-country will be required. The Analyst will work very closely with the MOHSW, interacting on a regular basis with donors and implementing partners, to perform the analysis needed to inform a rapid, effective, government-led plan for expansion of implant services. The Analyst must develop a thorough understanding of the family planning supply chain and service delivery systems and stay up to date on issues of interest in the space. He or she must be able to work and solve problems independently, while also sustaining strong collaborative relationships within the MOHSW. Strong quantitative and analytical skills are pre-requisites for this position.
