Job Title: Senior Associate, Vaccines
Job Number:
Organization: Clinton Health Access Initiative
Posted: 10/18/2018
Type: Full-Time
Number of Openings: 1
Location: Yaounde,      Cameroon
Position Description: 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: Program Overview Vaccination is widely acknowledged as one of the most cost-effective and focused disease interventions. In addition, the unprecedented wave of new vaccines expected over the next decade has the potential to dramatically reduce the global burden of disease. Although Cameroon has made significant progress in the last decade in improving vaccine coverage and introducing new vaccines, many challenges remain, particularly in the area of new vaccine introductions and vaccine delivery systems. CHAI started supporting Cameroon's Ministry of Health (MOH) in 2007 to scale up pediatric and adult second-line anti-retroviral therapy, through donation of lifesaving ARVs and diagnostics; as well as technical assistance for improving the quality of ART and laboratory systems to support HIV care and treatment. In recent years, CHAI has expanded its support to the MOH in other areas including malaria diagnosis and helping to introduce more effective new treatment for severe malaria, improving access to family planning, point of care diagnostics, maternal and child health, and technical support for the MOH's drive to sustainably fund healthcare. In early 2015, CHAI launched its vaccines program to apply the techniques it has used to successfully improve access to HIV/AIDS and malaria treatment in Cameroon to vaccines, one of the most cost-effective public health interventions. The focus of the program is to support the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) in new vaccine introductions, improving vaccine delivery systems, strategic planning and execution, and capability development for immunization. The CHAI Vaccines Program, therefore, aims to increase access to immunization services through five focus areas: • Accelerate the introduction and sustain high coverage of new vaccines; • Transform in-country delivery systems to efficiently deliver both current and future vaccines; • Achieve affordable yet sustainable vaccine and cold chain equipment prices by shaping vaccine markets and negotiating price reductions for major antigens and cold chain equipment; • Capability strengthening by assisting the Government of Cameroon to reach its goal of routine immunization coverage for all children; • Immunization strategic planning and execution by supporting the MOH to develop quality strategic planning for vaccines and its execution. Position Overview CHAI is looking for a dynamic, energetic individual with exceptional people skills, highly qualified with experience in vaccines or related field, and experienced in working in challenging environments to support its Cameroon vaccine program. This is a very demanding post, which will prove to be very rewarding for the right candidate. • Advanced degree in a relevant field, plus 4 years of significant vaccines experience in a field requiring advanced analytics and exceptional presentation skills. Candidates with experience from a reputable international consulting firm will have an advantage; • Ability to work independently and effectively in high-pressure, fast-paced environment and handle multiple tasks simultaneously • Experience in driving planning and execution of projects including budgeting, activity planning, and monitoring • Experience in leading and structuring evidence based decision making processes • Strong process management skills, high level of organization and exceptional attention to detail • Ability to build relationships with senior stakeholders and quickly demonstrate credibility with a proven track record of working in challenging multi-stakeholder environments • Exceptional oral and written communication skills for conveying key points succinctly, persuasively and clearly in both French and English
