The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance.

Background on the Global Markets Team:
The hallmark of CHAI’s approach is simultaneous and intensive engagement on both the demand and supply sides of the market. On the demand side, CHAI’s country teams help governments scale up treatment programs, improve procurement and supply chain management.
The Global Markets Team (GMT) works to address supply-side barriers to access and foster the development of healthy marketplaces to ensure the sustainable supply of essential medicines. GMT works closely with drug and diagnostic manufacturers to lower prices, encourages the adoption of stringent quality standards, and facilitates the entry and uptake of new improved products.
The GMT plays the lead role in managing relationships with major pharmaceutical and diagnostics companies to shape their access to medicines policies and programs. The GMT also leads CHAI’s engagement with generic firms, assisting in the development of licensing agreements, product development agreements, and entry of generic products into new markets.
GMT is seeking a highly qualified individual to fill the position of Program Coordinator. The role will involve building and managing relationships with a broad set of internal and external stakeholders and liaising with various CHAI teams to ensure smooth operations of the program and compliance with grant requirements. This role will require candidates to develop familiarity with all aspects of GMT’s programs, including funding, planning, and implementation. The Program Coordinator will also provide support to various GMT program managers and the Head of GMT to ensure effective implementation and monitoring of project activities.
Candidates must demonstrate an ability to assess issues, think creatively to resolve problems, and determine when to escalate to other team members. The Program Coordinator will need to possess analytical ability, excellent communication skills, exceptional diplomacy and tact, and organizational and project management skills. The candidate must be able to function independently and flexibly, operate effectively in an environment with a high level of ambiguity and uncertainty, and have a strong commitment to excellence and attention to detail. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: proactiveness, resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, entrepreneurship, and strong work ethic.
Preference for this person to be based on the East Coast of the US (Boston or NYC preferred), and the anticipated travel is 10-20%.
