Vector Control and Entomological Surveillance Associate
Fecha límite: 30 de Junio de 2022
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. For more information, please visit: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org
CHAI is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and is committed to providing an environment of fairness, and mutual respect where all applicants have access to equal employment opportunities. CHAI values diversity and inclusion, and recognizes that our mission is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of people with diverse experience, backgrounds, and culture.
CHAI’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term
In Haiti, the National Malaria Program (NMCP) has achieved important progress in its quest to eliminate malaria as between 2012 and 2021, the number of reported malaria cases dropped by almost 90%. Reaching elimination is challenging and accelerating further progress will among others, require improvements in coverage and impact of vector control interventions (eg: bed nets, larval source management and indoor residual spraying) to reduce human contact with mosquitoes that can serve as vectors for transmission of malaria parasites.
Overview of Role
CHAI seeks to recruit a highly motivated team member to expand and coordinate our efforts to optimize the coverage, impact and cost-effectiveness of vector control interventions in Haiti and corresponding entomological surveillance. More specifically, the Associate will support the Ministry of Health in its efforts to strengthen evidence-based planning, targeting, implementation and monitoring of larval source management and the use of mosquito nets.
This role will report directly to CHAI’s Country Manager in Haiti. Technical backstopping will be provided by CHAI’s Regional Technical Advisor on Vector Control and Entomological Surveillance. The candidate must be able to multi-task, work independently, and build strong relationships to consolidate CHAI’s partnerships and drive progress. Furthermore, the candidate must have deep personal commitment to producing results, and willingness to travel to relatively remote regions with limited infrastructure and medical care.
