Position Summary

Despite significant progress in the global HIV response, new HIV infections are not declining fast enough to reach epidemic control by 2030. Scaling access to safe, effective prevention options that meet the needs of those at risk of HIV infection is essential to reaching epidemic control. However, individual and systemic barriers persist, limiting the impact of effective HIV prevention interventions.

CHAI is supporting the Zimbabwe Ministry of Health and Child Care (MOHCC) to build resilient and responsive health systems that will catalyse the scale-up and transition to sustainable implementation of combination HIV prevention interventions.

The Associate, HIV Prevention will support the following efforts within this grant to:

  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 a highly motivated individual with outstanding credentials, analytical grounding and strong problem-solving abilities. The Associate is required to work with government officials and partners, and as such must have excellent relationship building, communication (written and verbal) and negotiation skills. She/he must be able to function independently and have a strong commitment to excellence, with a keen eye for detail. She/he should also exhibit the following important personal qualities: resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, the highest level of integrity and have a strong professional ethic. The position may require 20-30% in-country travel. The Associate will be based in Harare, Zimbabwe, and will report to the Program Manager, HIV prevention
