Job Title: Technical Advisor, Global Health Financing
Job Number:
Organization: Clinton Health Access Initiative
Posted: 5/8/2017
Type: Full-Time
Number of Openings: 1
Location: Boston,  MA    USA
Position Description: Founded in 2002, by President William J. Clinton and Ira Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (“CHAI”) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems and expanding access to care and treatment in the developing world. CHAI's solution-oriented approach focuses on improving market dynamics for medicines and diagnostics; lowering prices for treatment; accelerating access to lifesaving technologies; and helping governments build the capacity required for high-quality care and treatment programs. Since its inception, CHAI's programs have helped more than 11.8 million people in more than 70 countries have access to CHAI-negotiated prices for HIV/AIDS medicines, saving the global health community billions of dollars. For more information, please visit: CHAI's health financing program is working with 10 of these countries to support Ministries of Health to substantially and sustainably improve access to essential health services for their populations. Health financing is often insufficient and overly reliant on donors and individuals paying out of pocket at facilities. Low income countries in Africa and South East Asia see over half of the global disease burden, are home to 40% of the global population and account for only 3% of health spending. Donor contributions for health have plateaued, and in many countries are likely to decline in the coming years. Domestic resources for health are increasing, but the rate of growth in government spending dedicated to health fluctuates and is often insufficient to meet population needs. In addition, resources that are made available may not be spent efficiently. Healthcare providers face stock-outs, ration services among patients and charge informal or formal user fees, which can act as a deterrent for patients, and particularly the poor, to seek care. CHAI is supporting governments to address these challenges by strengthening tax-funded and donor funded systems and rolling out health insurance reforms. Staff members work closely with Ministry of Health partners, often with permanent desks in government offices, to support evidence-based decision making and design systems to mobilize sustainable resources and ensure those resources go as far as possible so that providers can deliver quality care and patients can access that care. Position Overview: CHAI is seeking a Technical Advisor with relevant experience in health financing, including health financing reforms such as insurance and public financial management, to provide technical, strategic and management support to design and implementation of health financing reforms in Sub-Saharan countries.

He or she will work closely with, and advise in-country teams to strengthen the ability of Ministries of Health to design and implement health financing reforms.
