Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) Vacancy for a Technical Advisor, M&E

The Clinton Health
Access Initiative (CHAI) works in partnership with country governments,
partners, and other major stakeholders to identify key obstacles to
scaling-up and increasing access to essential health services, and to
develop sustainable strategies to overcome them.
CHAI’s
solution-

oriented approach focuses on improving market dynamics for
medicines and diagnostics; lowering prices for treatment; accelerating
access to life-saving vaccines and technologies; and helping governments
build the capacity required to design and implement high-quality care
and treatment programs.

CHAI’s
Applied Analytics Team (AAT) works closely with CHAI’s country teams
and partner governments to improve health care delivery by using applied
analytics to drive policy and programmatic decisions. AAT provides
credible designs, strategies and advice, through fit-for-purpose
analytical approaches including operations research, mathematical
modeling, monitoring, program evaluation and impact evaluation.
Expanding
access to long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) provides women
the choice of more effective methods to reduce unintended pregnancies
and associated negative health outcomes. Providing LARC to women during
the postpartum period is a particularly effective intervention in that
it targets women with family planning when they need it most and when
the health benefits can be the greatest. Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are
a particularly cost-effective method and are the longest acting
reversible contraceptive available, protecting against pregnancy for up
to 12 years.
CHAI
will support the governments of Nigeria and Ethiopia, countries with
low LARC use, to expand services by integrating family planning
services, and particularly postpartum IUDs (PPIUDs), with CHAI’s
comprehensive maternal and newborn health (MNH) programs. The approach
will ensure provision of complete counseling and delivery of the range
of appropriate family planning methods, focused on IUDs, to postpartum
women by integrating these services into the MNH cascade to reach women
during their pregnancy-related interactions with the health system.
CHAI
is seeking a highly motivated individual with superior problem-solving
skills who is resourceful, collaborative, and proficient in quantitative
analysis to support the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) efforts of
the PPIUD programs in Nigeria and Ethiopia.  The candidate must have a
passion for results and a commitment to excellence, and experience with
M&E and/or data collection and management. The Technical Advisor
will be a member of the Applied Analytics Team, and will collaborate
daily with CHAI’s global Family Planning and MNH Teams, as well as the
Nigerian and Ethiopian country teams. The position will be based in
Abuja, with anticipated travel to Ethiopia and within Nigeria.
