CHAI recrute 01 Associate, Technology Solutions
|Localisation||Dakar / Sénégal|

Description de l’offre
CHAI is engaged in several technology initiatives across various countries to address critical gaps in effective health systems design, operations and delivery. Infrastructure and human resource constraints limit the impact of public health programs and cause unacceptable delays in achieving widely recognized goals of universal access to prevention and treatment. When designed and implemented well, technology solutions can achieve transformational impact without significant capital investments and enable more efficient use of limited resources.
CHAI’s Global Technology Solutions (GTS) team assists several country and global teams in using technology to facilitate programmatic impact by addressing critical gaps in effective health systems operations and delivery. CHAI’s Family Planning (FP) team works with Ministries of Health in a number of countries to increase access to FP commodities and services. To facilitate achieving this objective, GTS has supported the FP and country teams in Nigeria, Kenya, and Tanzania in developing web-based dashboards that integrate and visualize service delivery, supply chain, and human resource information from existing data systems to serve as performance management and planning tools for Ministries of Health. Based on the success in these three countries, CHAI will build and deploy similar dashboards across 9 Ouagadougou Partnership (OP) countries, DRC, Uganda, and Pakistan, including strengthening source data systems and in particular, health workforce information systems. In addition, we will continue to build on FP Dashboard work in Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzania.
The GTS is looking to support the CHAI country teams in DRC and Uganda to design and build dashboards and strengthen HR information systems in DRC and Uganda, and to support source data systems strengthening in Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzania. In addition, GTS will also conduct in-depth scoping work in OP countries and Pakistan.
The Associate will serve as project managers and business analysts for assigned projects and will be responsible for product delivery. The Associate will lead system design, manage system development and deployment, coordination, communication, and reporting activities associated with the scope broadly described above. The Associate will report to the Technical Advisor, who will also be the technical lead for this work.
The successful candidate will have strong communication, organizational, and management skills as well as be able to work independently to drive implementation and have deep personal commitment to producing results.
Hiring for this position is contingent on funding approval, CHAI’s statutory registrations in Senegal and securing work permits as required. Position will be initially funded for 6 months with possibility of extension based on funding approval.
