CHAI values diversity and inclusion, and recognizes that our mission is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of people with diverse experience, backgrounds, and culture.
CHAI’s Global Sexual and Reproductive Health (Global SRH) team works to reduce unintended pregnancies and related impact of maternal mortality and morbidity by increasing access to essential reproductive health commodities and services. CHAI is currently supporting the introduction of several reproductive health products to LMIC markets, including hormonal IUD, medical abortion (MA) commodities, and subcutaneous injectable contraceptives (DMPA-SC). As part of this effort, CHAI is working with the governments of DRC, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia to introduce new SRH products, including hormonal IUD. In Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Zambia CHAI is also supporting the development of government-led product introduction mechanisms that will be responsible for routine introduction of SRH products in the future, providing needed direction, leadership and coherence to donor-funded activities implemented by other partners.
The Associate will provide technical and programmatic support to 3 program country teams in Africa (likely DRC, Uganda and Zambia) to support introduction of new reproductive health products and improve sexual and reproductive health service delivery. To support this work, CHAI’s Global SRH Team is seeking a highly motivated individual with superior problem-solving and communication skills who is resourceful, collaborative, and proficient in quantitative analysis. The candidate should have experience working in a fast-paced, multi-cultural environment and functioning independently with minimal guidance. The candidate must have excellent relationship-building and communication skills and ability to work effectively with others remotely.
The position will also support country teams to remain abreast of global best practices and evidence related to SRH and to translate this information into improvements in country-specific programs and approaches. The role will be expected to work collaboratively with country teams to design programs, identify country-specific opportunities for improving SRH service delivery, document and evaluate progress, and communicate lessons learned.
In addition to country support, the Associate will own a subset of knowledge areas, leading knowledge sharing priorities and coordinating development of global goods; as well as liaising internally with other CHAI program teams as appropriate. The Associate will report to the Global SRH Senior Program Manager. Base location is flexible, with a strong preference for a CHAI SRH program in Africa, pending Country Director Approval. Expected travel is 50%.
