    Associate, Malaria (Mpumalanga)

    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.

    Malaria is one of the world's most significant causes of illness, death and lost economic productivity. Over the past decade, dramatic increases in donor funding have facilitated scale-up of effective interventions to prevent, diagnose, and treat malaria.

    This investment has successfully reduced the burden of malaria in many settings, and some countries have begun planning to eliminate it altogether. Yet these gains are fragile:

    global funding for malaria remains short of what is needed, the last decade's rapid growth in malaria financing appears to have halted, and resistance to insecticides and drugs threatens to set back efforts.

    CHAI's malaria program provides direct management and technical support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease.

    We support governments to scale up effective interventions, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.

    Summary of Position

    CHAI is seeking an Associate to support the Mpumalanga Provincial Department of Health's Malaria Program to achieve its malaria elimination goals. The Associate is expected to build strong relationships with the Provincial Department of Health and relevant country partners to develop and deliver upon evidence-based strategic plans to eliminate malaria from South Africa.

    Working in coordination with a decentralized CHAI team, the Associate provides dedicated operational support to the Provincial Department of Health to develop and execute effective high-impact programs.

    The position requires a highly motivated individual with outstanding analytic, problem solving, organizational, communication, and inter-personal skills. The candidate must be results oriented and independent, able to learn quickly, think strategically, and work effectively with a multi-cultural, multidisciplinary set of actors.

    CHAI places great value on the resourcefulness, tenacity, patience, humility, and high ethical standards of its staff.

    The Associate will support the Provincial Department of Health to:

  • Implement the National Malaria Elimination Strategy
  • Design, deploy and monitor focus-based intervention strategies to reduce malaria transmission
  • Deploy and monitor a DHI2-based national information system, with mobile tools for electronic data capture, to strengthen malaria surveillance and intervention planning
  • Implement collaborative initiatives to reduce cross-border malaria transmission
  • To achieve these objectives, the Associate must:
  • Provide day-to-day management and coordination support to the Provincial Department of Health

    Program Manager, Health Financing

    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. Unlike other implementers, CHAI does not operate stand-alone programs, nor does it build parallel health systems. Rather, CHAI works at the invitation and in support of governments.

    We focus on large-scale impact and have secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries, including cutting the costs of Viral Load laboratory tests by 50% in South Africa. CHAI's teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective health care.

    CHAI's health financing program is working with 10 governments to substantially and sustainably improve access to and utilization of essential health services for their populations.

    These governments are committed to increasing access, but face financial barriers to doing so. Financing for health is often insufficient, inefficiently spent and overly reliant on donor funding, which is not sustainable. Healthcare providers face stock-outs, ration services among patients and charge informal or formal user fees, which can act as a deterrent for patients, and particularly the poor, to seek care when needed.

    CHAI's approach includes working on a day to day basis with senior leadership and technical staff in Ministries of Health from the national to subnational level and at the facility level, in order to address financial barriers to access to health services.

    This includes supporting decisions to define health priorities, quantify resource gaps and secure resources for these priorities from donor and domestic sources, moving towards aid independence over time.

    In countries like Ethiopia and South Africa, CHAI is supporting roll-out of national health insurance. In countries like Malawi and Swaziland, CHAI is working with governments to improve how the available general revenue and donor resources are managed through existing financial management systems.

    CHAI is looking for a Program Manager with relevant experience in health financing, and ideally public financial management, to provide technical, strategic and management support to design and implementation of health financing programs in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, including Cameroon, Ethiopia, Malawi, Rwanda, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Myanmar.

    Please note that while the base location is flexible, this role will include up to 60-70% travel and will support multiple country locations in Africa and Asia.

    Placement is flexible per leadership approval with preference for CHAI program country in Southern and Eastern Africa.

    Job Requirements

    This is a challenging, fast-paced and rewarding position. The Program Manager will be part of a small global health financing team. He or she will work closely with in-country teams strengthening the ability of Ministries of Health to design and implement financial management and other health financing reforms.

    He or she will also contribute to shape CHAI's health financing strategy and emerging programs and priorities in areas such as health insurance and public financial management.

    Key responsibilities include the following:

  • Work with country teams to support partner governments on design and roll-out of health financing reforms and interventions to strengthen financial management;
  • Design and implement new tools and processes for improved budgeting or resource allocation and performance management, and support their institutionalization within governments;
  • Support country teams to undertake research and quantitative analyses and to present results to inform senior management decisions that improve efficiency, effectiveness, equity and sustainability of health financing;
  • Research methods used in the roll-out of health financing reforms in other countries and support adaptation of lessons to new contexts;
  • Collaborate and share work with global, regional and national stakeholders, through day to day work as well as presentations at key global fora;
  • Onboard, train and provide day to day troubleshooting support to CHAI staff in health financing, financial modeling and other areas as needed;
  • Provide strategic support to country program managers in work planning, monitoring and evaluation and management;
  • Support monitoring and evaluation across CHAI country programs, as well as reporting to donors;
  • Contribute to knowledge management activities internally and disseminate methods and lessons learned through internal and external materials including peer-reviewed publications;
  • Other responsibilities as requested by manager.

    Qualifications include the following:

  • A minimum of 5-7+ years of experience in a relevant field (e.g. financial management, health economics, health insurance) in the public or private sector with increasing responsibilities;
  • Advanced degree in health economics, public health, public policy, economics or other relevant disciplines preferred; or Bachelor's degree with exceptional experience.
  • Experience working in developing countries and with governments an advantage;
  • Project management experience, including program design and execution as well as monitoring and evaluation;
  • Strong strategic and problem solving skills, including excellent analytical and quantitative skills;
  • Strong writer, facilitator and oral communicator able to explain complex concepts to a variety of audiences;
  • Ability to work independently, self-motivate and propose new initiatives;
  • Ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously and quickly adapt to changing priorities;

This will be something you can do fluently in both French and English. Beyond that, you’ll also be confident planning and managing multiple projects and show fine judgement when it comes to delivering training and communicating in a multicultural setting.
