Analyst, HIV Prevention Short Term

Temporary | Full-Time
Program (Division)
Country Programs - Zimbabwe

The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to our mission of saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries. We work at the invitation of governments to support them and the private sector to create and sustain high-quality health systems.

CHAI was founded in 2002 in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic with the goal of dramatically reducing the price of life-saving drugs and increasing access to these medicines in the countries with the highest burden of the disease. Over the following two decades, CHAI has expanded its focus. Today, along with HIV, we work in conjunction with our partners to prevent and treat infectious diseases such as COVID-19, malaria, tuberculosis, and hepatitis. Our work has also expanded into cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and other non-communicable diseases, and we work to accelerate the rollout of lifesaving vaccines, reduce maternal and child mortality, combat chronic malnutrition, and increase access to assistive technology. We are investing in horizontal approaches to strengthen health systems through programs in human resources for health, digital health, and health financing. With each new and innovative program, our strategy is grounded in maximizing sustainable impact at scale, ensuring that governments lead the solutions, that programs are designed to scale nationally, and learnings are shared globally.

At CHAI, our people are our greatest asset, and none of this work would be possible without their talent, time, dedication and passion for our mission and values. We are a highly diverse team of enthusiastic individuals across 40 countries with a broad range of skillsets and life experiences. CHAI is deeply grounded in the countries we work in, with majority of our staff based in program countries. Learn more about our exciting work:

CHAI is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and is committed to providing an environment of fairness, and mutual respect where all applicants have access to equal employment opportunities. CHAI values diversity and inclusion, and recognizes that our mission is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of people with diverse experience, backgrounds, and culture.


Program and Position Overview:


Despite tremendous progress in accelerating access to HIV treatment, over 1.3 million people were newly infected with HIV in 2022, significantly above the Global Prevention Coalition (GPC) target of 370,000 new annual infections by 2025. To achieve epidemic control, experts agree that primary HIV prevention, in addition to secondary prevention through treatment and viral suppression, will be necessary – and these interventions will need to be sustained over time until we have access to an effective and affordable HIV vaccine. Zimbabwe remains one of the countries with a high burden of HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, with a generalised epidemic and HIV prevalence in adults (15-49 years) of 11.0% in 2022, a reduction from 25.4% in 1996. As part of its support to the Zimbabwe’s HIV response, CHAI is implementing a grant with two primary outcomes:


  1. Strengthen HIV-prevention program integration, strategically leveraging lessons from the coordination, management, and implementation of the Voluntary Male Medical Circumcision (VMMC) program and
  2. Document and share best practices from the implementation and transition of VMMC programs and the integration of combination HIV-prevention programs with national, regional, and global stakeholders.

CHAI is seeking an Analyst, HIV Prevention to support program implementation including strategic support to relevant government departments in operational roll-out of programmatic activities including national policy and coordination, with a specific focus on integrating the delivery of behavioral and structural HIV prevention interventions in routine HIV prevention programming. This Analyst will join a team of 5, thus the Analyst must be able to function independently and have a strong commitment to excellence, with a keen eye for detail. Successful applicants will have excellent relationship-building, communication (written and verbal), and negotiation skills. CHAI seeks a highly motivated individual with analytical grounding, and strong problem-solving abilities to assume the role of Analyst, HIV Prevention.

The Analyst should also exhibit the following important personal qualities: resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, the highest level of integrity, and a strong professional ethic.


The position may require up to 25% in-country travel. The Analyst, HIV Prevention, will be based in Harare, Zimbabwe, and will report to the Program Manager for HIV prevention.
