Program Manager, Family Planning

Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses. Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management. By working in association with governments and other NGO partners, CHAI is focused on large scale impact and, to date, CHAI has secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries. In addition, CHAI's teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective treatment and care.
Summary of Position
Over 200 million women around the world have an unmet need for family planning, indicating they would like to stop or limit childbearing, but do not have access to methods to do so. Increasing access to family planning has the potential to reduce maternal and infant mortality, reduce the number of deaths due to unsafe abortion, and improve the health outcomes of women and families overall. In Tanzania, 25% of women have an unmet need for family planning and it is estimated that only 24% of all women are currently using modern methods of family planning.
Since 2012, CHAI has worked with governments, partners and manufacturers to reduce the price of contraceptives and increase access to family planning supplies and services, particularly long-acting and reversible contraception (LARC). In sub-Saharan Africa, CHAI helps Ministries of Health to plan, coordinate, and implement family planning scale-up by providing a strong foundation of rigorous analysis and management support to more effectively target interventions, allocate resources, and fill gaps to align contraceptive supplies with human resource capacity and client demand.
As part of this work, CHAI Tanzania supports the Reproductive and Child Health Section (RCHS) at the Tanzania Ministry of Health, Community, Development, Gender, Elderly and Children to increase access to LARC as part of the full family planning method mix. Specifically, CHAI brings analytical support and technical assistance to RCHS to improve FP service delivery, enhance contraceptive security and manage new product introductions. CHAI supports RCHS to use data for decision-making and performance management, specifically through the development and deployment of the web-based National FP Dashboard. The Dashboard provides highly visual and actionable analyses that support program management by integrating service delivery and human resource data.
CHAI is seeking a Family Planning Country Program Manager to continue this work in Tanzania. The Program Manager will be based in Dar es Salaam and will report to the Tanzania Country Director. Travel in-country, and occasionally regionally, will be required. The Program Manager will lead a team of three staff: a Supply Chain Officer (seconded to RCHS), focused on family planning commodity security; a Family Planning Analyst/Service Improvement Mentor, providing programmatic and analytic support, and a CHAI volunteer.
