The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc.

CHAI’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual to support government programs in the storage, usage, and management of geospatial information using a Common Geo-Registry (CGR) towards the elimination of malaria. The Associate will work with CHAI regional and country teams, Ministries of Health (MoH), and other stakeholders in Mozambique and up to four other countries to assess the availability, quality, and accessibility of geographic data core to public health, understand and validate government interest, and develop CGR implementation plans for further investment.
A successful candidate will need to possess exceptional communication, organizational, and management skills as well as be able to work independently to drive implementation in complex environments and have deep personal commitment to producing results.
