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.
In India, CHAI works in partnership with its India registered affiliate William J Clinton Foundation (WJCF) under the guidance of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) at the Central and States' levels on an array of high priority initiatives aimed at improving health outcomes. Currently, WJCF supports government partners across projects to expand access to quality care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, tuberculosis, COVID-19, common cancers, sexual and reproductive health, immunization, and essential medicines.

India is home to the highest number of children and adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) in the world, with an estimated 0.3 million cases in 2022. Studies indicate that given the increasing incidence of T1D, an estimated 1.1 million children and adolescents would be newly diagnosed with T1D annually by 2040. While the burden of T1D has continued to rise over the years, survival has remained poor. Survival rates for children and adolescents with T1D in India is worse compared to countries with similar socio-economic development. On average, a child diagnosed with T1D at the age of 10 years lives only an additional healthy 29 years of life, contributing to premature mortality and loss of productivity.
There is an urgent need to improve access to screening and diagnosis and ensure adherence to treatment for T1D, especially for children and adolescents. WJCF’s Juvenile Diabetes program aims at strengthening and improving access to quality T1D care in India, with the overall goal of achieving longer, healthier, and more productive lives for People Living with Type 1 Diabetes (PLT1D). The program aims to address critical barriers to delivery of quality T1D care in India by building awareness, improving access to screening, diagnosis and treatment services, enabling treatment adherence and self-management, and strengthening governance and policy framework for delivery of T1D care.
WJCF seeks a highly motivated and entrepreneurial individual with demonstrated analytical and stakeholder management abilities for the role of Analyst, Juvenile Diabetes (Non-communicable Diseases). The Analyst will actively engage and support programmatic scoping work, with the objective of developing a comprehensive and actionable program implementation plan. During the scoping phase, the Analyst will anchor and execute research and analysis in the T1D space that includes, amongst other areas, understanding the governance and policy framework for delivery of care at the state level, detailing the care journey of a PLT1D and understanding barriers to care, identifying, and prioritizing key interventions to strengthen delivery of care, and an in-depth understanding of care seeking behaviour. The role of the Analyst will subsequently transition to support program implementation at the state level that will involve analytical support, coordinating field-level activities, including monitoring, evaluation and reporting progress, extensive stakeholder engagement, and understanding and identifying key risks and mitigation mechanisms.
The ideal candidate should have exceptional interpersonal skills, be able to work independently, be flexible, be comfortable working and coordinating operations across cross-functional teams and have a strong commitment to excellence. The Analyst role is a high impact role for young professionals determined to positively impact public health outcomes and allows for rich stakeholder engagement.
