Additional Location Description

The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc.

Overview of CHAI’s Essential Medicines Program 


Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) has launched an ambitious effort to scale-up access to treatment for diarrhea and pneumonia, which combined, kill over 1.5 million children every year. Working with the governments of five high-burden countries and leading global institutions, CHAI’s Essential Medicines team is supporting intensified efforts at both global and country levels to plan, resource, and implement effective interventions for scaling-up access to treatment for these conditions – specifically zinc and ORS for diarrhea, and amoxicillin and oxygen for pneumonia. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Essential Medicines team has expanded its oxygen work to more than fifteen countries, supporting pandemic response efforts while strengthening long-term oxygen systems planning. 


The location for this position is flexible and can be based in any CHAI Program Countries in Asia or Africa, pending Country Leadership approval, or the US. 10-20% international travel time would be required once situation allows.
