Over the last several decades, South Africa’s Department of Health (DOH) has made significant progress to achieving the UNAIDS 90-90-90 (90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status, 90% of people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained ART and 90% of all people receiving ART are virally suppressed) for the paediatric and adolescent populations. However, gaps still exist. Due to South Africa’s high disease burden, South Africa falls short and does not meet the 90-90-90 targets. To address these challenges, CHAI South Africa’s (CHAI SA) team is supporting the DOH, at national and provincial levels to implement a broad range of activities across the 90-90-90 matrix, including assessing and costing proven and/or new innovative intervention strategies focused on identification, establishing strong linkage systems, improving paediatric retention/viral suppression and building an investment case for scale and sustainability. This work will be done through the provision of technical assistance to support the development and deployment of strategic interventions and operational plans, resource optimization in the short and long term and galvanizing key stakeholder coordination.
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding technical and managerial capabilities to play a key role in the Paediatric HIV program. The Program Manager will shape strategy, manage and provide technical input to a growing Paediatric HIV team. Additionally, s/he will work with a range of partners and subject matter experts within Paediatric HIV to coordinate workstreams. Thus, the Program Manager should have exceptional communication and analytical skills, be a strong strategic thinker and be able to adapt to differing program needs. CHAI places great value on commitment to excellence, resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, flexibility, independence, energy, work ethic and humility.
The Manager will be based in Pretoria, South Africa and report to CHAI South Africa’s leadership team.
