The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance. For more information, please visit: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org
CHAI has been supporting the Government of Nigeria since 2007. Current programs in Nigeria include HIV Access and Laboratory services, Malaria, Routine Immunization strengthening, Essential Childhood Medicines, Sexual, Reproductive, Maternal and Newborn Health, Cancer Access, Primary Health Care and COVID-19 technical assistance to the Government.
CHAI is supporting the Federal Government of Nigeria and state Governments to scale up access to effective, high-quality sexual, reproductive, maternal, and newborn health services (SRMNH). This includes providing technical assistance for policy reviews and revisions, program design, implementation support, and capacity building for Government officials to sustain programs. In addition, CHAI’s health financing strategy in Nigeria has expanded to include work in health systems and management, with a focus on building primary health car (PHC) systems towards the goal of universal health coverage (UHC). This work builds on CHAI’s experience in SRMNCH, health financing and workforce.
CHAI is seeking an Associate Director with relevant experience in health financing and primary health care systems, to lead work across strategy, management and operations of CHAI Nigeria’s SRMNH program and emerging primary health care strategy. We are seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding leadership and management skills. The candidate must be able to independently drive the development and implementation of programs, have deep personal commitment to producing results, and have the ability to lead in a challenging professional environment. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness, entrepreneurialism, tenacity, independence, humility, passion for the mission, and work ethic.
Based in Abuja, the Associate Director of SRMNH & PHC will work with the Director of Programs and SRH, and the Country Director to ensure the overall success of CHAI’s PHC/SRMNH work in Nigeria. The Associate Director will act as the technical lead for CHAI’s Nigeria team to achieve objectives and maintain strong relations with the Ministry of Health at National and subnational levels. Reporting to the Program Director, the AD will oversee the grant writing, program implementation and management, monitoring and financial management.
