P4P Program Manager~Clinton Health Access Initiative Tanzania

Since 2002, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, CHAI (formerly the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative), has been assisting developing countries in implementing large-scale, integrated HIV care, treatment, and prevention programs. CHAI is currently active in Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, and Eastern Europe. In support of national HIV/AIDS programs, CHAI provides technical assistance, mobilizes human and financial resources, and facilitates the sharing of best practices across projects. CHAI has also negotiated agreements with leading pharmaceutical companies that have lowered the cost of HIV/AIDS and malaria diagnostics and treatment in the developing world by 30-90%. Our ultimate objectives are to make high-quality HIV/AIDS and malaria care and treatment available to all who need it, and to partner with governments and other stakeholders to strengthen healthcare systems and develop sustainable strategies to overcome obstacles to scale-up. CHAI is currently seeking candidates for the position of Program Manager to manage the P4P (Pay for Performance) team in Tanzania. In partnership with the Government of Tanzania, CHAI has helped design and test a results-based financing approach over the past 18 months in the Pwani Region. The goal of P4P Pilot is to accelerate the reduction of maternal, neonatal and child morbidity and mortality through improving reproductive and child health services. It also aims to increase the generation and use of health information for decision making, leading to improved health outcomes; and to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the health system through motivating health care workers to provide quality services. The program is already showing positive outcomes and discussions are on-going with regards to a national scale-up in mid-2013.

The P4P Program Manager will work hand-in-hand with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) as part of the Pilot Management Team (PMT). As the head of one of our programs, he/she will also be part of CHAI Tanzania's management team, working collaboratively with the Country Director and other Program Managers to successfully execute CHAI Tanzania's programmatic objectives. The Program Manager's primary report will be to the Country Director, with a secondary reporting line to CHAI's global Director, Health Systems Strengthening. He/she will be a highly committed and results-focused individual, with strong and proven strategic and analytical skills, and exceptional written and oral communication skills targeting a broad variety of stakeholders. He/she must be a team leader and a team player, demonstrating tenacity, resourcefulness and humility working a highly entrepreneurial environment.
