CHAI hiring an Analyst, Diagnostics, Senegal.
The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc.

With the establishment of the ambitious 2020 “90-90-90” treatment targets, there is a renewed focus on initiating HIV-infected people on to ART as soon as possible, and ensuring they remain on effective treatment to achieve viral suppression – both of which require better access to Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) and Viral Load (VL) testing. Most patients do not have access to testing where they receive care, instead they must rely on transportation of their samples to and from centralized laboratories, and have to wait for their test results. Although these centralized laboratory-based technologies have formed the backbone for national testing programs, and have provided testing to many patients, implementation has been hampered by system challenges such as establishing sample transportation systems, optimizing the existing diagnostics network, timely result return to patients, result utilization, clinical decision making, and supply chain.
The CHAI Senegal team has been supporting the Ministry of Health (MOH) since 2018 to improve access to EID and VL testing through the introduction and scale-up of point-of-care (POC). The POC project in Senegal aims to scale-up the use of these novel devices to improve access to EID and VL testing at the decentralized level.
The project will work to ensure that high-quality routine testing is established, and centralized laboratory systems are strengthened. The team is also assisting Senegal with the adoption of recent WHO recommendations, strengthening supply chain for HIV lab commodities, and putting in place a dashboard to track POC data in real time for decision making.
CHAI is seeking to hire two experienced, bilingual (French/English), and self-motivated Analysts to support the POC project in Senegal. These positions will closely support the POC team in fostering relationships with the MOH and key stakeholders in Senegal. The team is looking for Analysts who are comfortable with Excel, data sets, and quantitative and qualitative analyses. Experience working in diagnostics or HIV is a plus. They will specifically support the team with the diagnostics network optimization work stream, strengthening EID and VL result return to patients and result utilization, developing innovative strategies for increasing demand for EID, and developing tools to improve supply chain for HIV lab commodities. They will provide technical support to the MOH to implement these strategies at the national level in Dakar, but also in decentralized settings across the 14 regions of Senegal.
These Analysts will be individuals with strong analytical abilities. They will be comfortable with uncertainty, while also coming up with innovative new ways of addressing problems and pushing initiatives forward. These positions will work with government officials and partners, and must have excellent relationship building and communication skills. They must be able to function independently with minimal oversight, and have a strong commitment to excellence with a keen eye for detail.
These positions will be based in Dakar and could be expected to travel at least 25% of the time across Senegal.
