Clinton Health Access Initiative

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.


Demand-Driven Evaluations for Decisions (3DE) is a pioneering approach to support Ministries active in the health sector with evidence-based decision-making by conducting rigorous impact evaluations in a demand-driven, rapid and efficient way. 3DE seeks to generate reliable impact evidence that fills information gaps identified by Ministries and is subsequently used to catalyze implementation of cost-effective action, often in the form of policy formulation or program roll-out. The 3DE program is implemented under the leadership of the respective CHAI country office and CHAI’s Applied Analytics Team (AAT), which is a global team that catalyzes rigorous analytics to improve health care delivery. 3DE was launched in 2012 in Zambia and Uganda, and beginning in 2015, the program will be operating in Rwanda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

 CHAI is seeking three Evaluation Managers (one for each country) to design and conduct rigorous impact evaluations on a diverse range of health topics. Each of the 3DE Evaluation Managers will be based in one of the 3DE program countries (Rwanda, Zambia or Zimbabwe).
