Overview of Role

CHAI is seeking an Associate to provide technical assistance in support of the CARAMAL project, specifically focusing on countries other than Nigeria, DRC and Uganda.

  • Organize and help lead meetings and workshops in select non-project countries to identify gaps that need to be addressed for successful introduction and/or scale up of RAS, and share insights and materials from the project that can help inform their operational planning
  • Compile comprehensive reports following engagement with non-project countries for internal (national planning) and external (project documentation) purposes
  • Help ensure that national-level severe malaria strategies, policies and guidelines in select non-project countries are updated in line with global guidelines
  • Support the gathering, analysis and presentation of severe malaria data from the CARAMAL project and available (un)published literature at country, regional and global malaria meetings
  • Support the organization of global stakeholder meetings on severe malaria
