Volunteer, Malaria Analyst, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Malaria is one of the most important causes of illness, death and lost economic productivity in Sub-Saharan Africa.  Over the past decade, dramatic increases in donor funding have facilitated scale-up of effective interventions to prevent, diagnosis, and treat malaria. This investment has successfully reduced the burden of malaria in many settings, and some countries have begun planning to eliminate it altogether. Yet these gains are fragile: global funding for malaria remains short of what is needed and last decade's rapid growth in malaria financing appears to have halted. The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) works with its government partners to increase funding for malaria, optimize the impact of malaria control and elimination programs, and support evidence-based decision-making to target resources, consolidate successes, increase sustainability, and accelerate elimination efforts.

Overview of Role:
National malaria programs in sub-Saharan Africa tend to be largely donor funded – particularly via the Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (Global Fund) – and have constrained budgets to implement life-saving interventions to prevent, diagnose, and treat malaria. While the ultimate goal is to have sufficient funds to prevent malaria everywhere, diagnose all suspected cases, and treat any infections that do occur, doing so will be impossible in the short-term given funding constraints. Identifying the optimal ways to allocate existing limited resources for maximum impact is thus necessary. CHAI provides technical and operational support to National Malaria Control Programs around the world to help them make data-driven decisions about how best to allocate their available funding. In 2014, most countries will be applying for Global Fund resources through the New Funding Model (NFM) beginning in mid-2014 to finance commodities and program activities over the next 3 years (2014 – 2016).

CHAI is seeking a short-term hire, based in Yaounde, Cameroon, Abuja, Nigeria or Dar es Salaam, Tanzania for a 6-month period. This individual will play a critical role in supporting our government partners to plan their malaria strategies, obtain all available financial resources, and advance their programs. The candidate must possess excellent communication skills, strong quantitative skills, the ability to manage multiple tasks/ongoing priorities and drive work plans forward under very short timelines.

This individual will be part of a team that works in close partnership with the Ministries of Health/partner government, Global Fund, CHAI country teams, and partner organizations.
