Volunteer, Global Fund Technical Advisor Job Listing at Clinton Health Access Initiative in Boston, MA (Job ID 499457)
Since 2002, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, CHAI (formerly the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative), has been assisting developing countries in implementing large-scale, integrated HIV care, treatment, and prevention programs. CHAI is currently active in Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, and Eastern Europe. In support of national HIV/AIDS programs, CHAI provides technical assistance, mobilizes human and financial resources, and facilitates the sharing of best practices across projects. CHAI has also negotiated agreements with leading pharmaceutical companies that have lowered the cost of HIV/AIDS and malaria diagnostics and treatment in the developing world by 30-90%. Our ultimate objectives are to make high-quality HIV/AIDS and malaria care and treatment available to all who need it, and to partner with governments and other stakeholders to strengthen healthcare systems and develop sustainable strategies to overcome obstacles to scale-up.
Summary of Position:
The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is looking for volunteer technical advisors to assist governments in developing proposals for funding from the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund), and in managing approved proposals. The Global Fund is one of the largest sources of funding for the three diseases, and to access resources countries are required to develop a complex, detailed proposal. Technical assistance to support proposal development requires strong coordination with the national government and other donor/NGO partners in country to identify high-priority program areas, the ability to interpret data and synthesize complex documents and issues into clear, straightforward prose, and quantitative skills to put together well-supported budgets and targets. Once resources are approved, governments often require technical assistance in ensuring the funds are effectively and efficiently utilized, and in building the management systems to ensure overall program effectiveness. CHAI provides staff support for the various coordinating, writing, quantification and systems building tasks necessary for a successful proposal and program implementation.
CHAI works in close partnership with the Ministries of Health (MOH) in these countries, procuring pediatric and second line ARVs, and providing technical assistance in a variety of areas. The Technical Advisors will work closely with the CHAI country team on the ground to provide technical support to the MOH, cooperating on a regular basis with donors, NGOs and civil society.
These are challenging but very rewarding positions, which will have direct and immediate impact on tens of thousands of patients in need of life-saving medications. It is an opportunity to work closely with governments committed to HIV prevention, care and treatment, provide critical skills and build systems, tools and capacity that will enable access to and better management of funds to fight the disease.
