Program (Division)
Infectious Disease - Global TB
Overview

The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance. For more information, please visit: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org

 

Position Overview:
The Associate will work closely with CHAI’s Global Tuberculosis Program Team and the Hong Kong-based China Country Manager to provide analytical support for a newly established partnership with the Chinese government. The collaboration will work to support China as it expands and accelerates access to the critical health commodities required for high-quality care and treatment of multi drug-resistance TB and pediatric TB.

 

S/he will be engaged in various activities related to gathering data, interviewing stakeholders and providing analytical support for the CHAI teams and their government counterparts to identify root causes and develop appropriate evidence-based interventions for informed policy changes. The Associate may work independently and/or with mixed teams consisting of project and local site staff.

 

It is anticipated that a significant portion of the associate’s work will involve assessing the quality and consistency of public health and clinical processes within the context of existing public health structures. As such, familiarity with total quality management concepts, tools, frameworks and methodologies would be extremely helpful. Experience with process redesign/reengineering would also be valued. Given the scope and purpose of collaboration, the project team will use the insights generated to support evidence-based decision-making that may impact government policy, public health system structure and/or conduct, health financing, and purchasing and supply management strategies.

 

S/he will be able to work in a flexible, entrepreneurial and results-driven manner under pressure, but still with optimism even in the face of complex challenges.


The Associate will report to the China Country Manager and the Global Tuberculosis Program team to implement TB projects in China.
