Job Title: Analyst, mHealth Solutions

Location: Abuja, Nigeria

Employer: Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI)

Type: Regular – Full Time (eligible for benefits)

Business Unit: Country Programs – Country Teams

Overview:

The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) was established in 2002 to increase access to care and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS and to strengthen health systems in resource-poor countries. Over the past few years, CHAI has expanded the scope of our work to include access to high-quality treatment for malaria, new vaccines, and essential treatments for maternal and child health. CHAI has also increasingly supported governments to build the capacity required for high-quality health care and treatment programs. Currently, CHAI partners with governments in more than 25 countries while more than 70 countries directly benefit from the low-priced drugs and diagnostic test agreements that CHAI has negotiated.

CHAI is embarking on an ambitious initiative to address critical gaps in access to life-saving medicines and commodities, and deliver them in an efficient and cost-effective manner.  In Nigeria, CHAI is working closely with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) to assess and improve the quality of care provision at the primary health care level. Specifically, CHAI will develop a mobile learning application for different cadres of health workers on reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health (RMNCH), particularly on the use of priority life-saving commodities. The training application will complement the didactic component of current in-service  training programs, and, in conjunction with job aids, checklists and patient management information, will provide easier and more cost-effective access to information for health workers.

The Analyst will manage the implementation of this mobile-based training and job aids application across the different levels of health workers – community health extension workers (CHEWs), Nurses and Midwives – based on existing training material and clinical guidelines. The Analyst will be responsible for day-to-day management of the program, ensuring timelines, budgets and deliverables are met and addressing bottlenecks and issues as they arise.

Reporting to the RMNCH manager, this role will be based in Abuja, with some travel to the field.
