Program Director, Integrated Child Health Employment Opportunity - Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI)

Organisation: Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) 
Duty Station: Kampala, Uganda
Reports to: Operations Manager

About US:
The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) was founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, and is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses. Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management. By working in association with governments and other NGO partners, CHAI is focused on large scale impact and, to date, CHAI has secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries. In addition, CHAI's teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective treatment and care.

About Integrated Child Health Program:
Approximately 100,000 children die in Uganda each year from preventable illness. More than one third of these deaths are caused by pneumonia (15%), malaria (12%), or diarrhoea (9%), illnesses that the world has the knowledge and tools to effectively treat. While there have been substantial investments and efforts to adequately manage these three illnesses, the majority of efforts have focused on single diseases and on the public health sector. To further reduce the number of Ugandan children dying, Uganda must address the cross-cutting challenges of these three diseases. This program will focus on a) expanding access to optimal, affordable drugs and diagnostics in the private sector, and b) improving the ability of private health care providers to diagnose, treat and, when necessary, refer to the appropriate level of care. To achieve this, CHAI will work with the government and key private sector partners to address four key objectives:
  • Improve frontline private providers’ ability to assess, treat, and refer childhood illnesses
  • Ensure that primary health facilities are adequately supplied with essential medicines and diagnostics
  • Improve integrated management of severe pneumonia and malaria in secondary and tertiary health facilities
  • Improve regulatory and financing environment
