Job Title: Associate, Vaccines

Business Unit: Global Programs      


The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) works in partnership with country governments, partners, and other major stakeholders to identify the key obstacles to access and scale-up of 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 for high-quality care and treatment programs.

In 2010, CHAI launched a vaccine program to apply the techniques it has used successfully to improve access to HIV/AIDS and malaria treatment in developing countries to essential vaccines, one of the most cost-effective public health interventions. CHAI’s Vaccine Program aims to:

1.   Increase the speed and efficiency with which new vaccines are introduced and reach scale in developing countries (with a focus on pneumococcal, rotavirus and pentavalent vaccines);

2.   Transform vaccine delivery systems for greater effectiveness, efficiency, and readiness for the future; and

3.   Reduce prices of vaccines and other immunization-related commodities.

The program is currently focused in six  countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Tanzania.
