Associate, Global Markets Team

at Clinton Health Access Initiative in East Coast, USA

About the Job

The hallmark of CHAI’s approach is simultaneous and intensive engagement on both the demand and supply sides of the market. On the demand side, CHAI’s country teams help governments scale up treatment programs, improve procurement and supply chain management.

Meanwhile, the Global Markets Team (GMT) works to address supply-side barriers to access and foster the development of healthy marketplaces to ensure the sustainable supply of essential medicines. The GMT works closely with drug and diagnostic manufacturers to lower prices, encourages the adoption of stringent quality standards, and facilitates the entry and uptake of new improved products.

The GMT plays the lead role in managing relationships with major pharmaceutical and diagnostics companies to shape their access to medicines policies and programs. The GMT also leads CHAI’s engagement with generic firms, assisting in the development of licensing agreements, product development agreements, and entry of generic products into new markets. 

Position Overview

The Global Markets Associate will support GMT’s Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) market shaping and market dynamics activities which expands on the CHAI Family Planning Program. The primary objective of the role will be to lead the analytical work required to refine CHAI’s SRH strategy and collaborate with a range of internal and external stakeholders to support the design and implementation of strategies to secure sufficient supply of critical reproductive health commodities to meet the demand of public sector SRH programs in low and middle income countries.

The Associate will lead the collection and analysis of data from a variety of sources such as shipment data via procurers and manufacturers, demographic data from household surveys, and usage data reported by countries. The Associate will be responsible for developing rigorous market analyses such as global market forecasts / outlooks and other reports to support investment decisions by suppliers and supply planning by multilateral agencies and country programs. The Associate will support the GMT to build, maintain, and update its supply and demand side market strategy for SRH commodities and services to ensure that women in the world’s poorest countries have access to reproductive health commodities. For example, this can include developing strategies to secure appropriate production capacity of low-cost, quality-assured contraceptives that meets forecasted demand or supporting the scale-up of new or underutilized contraceptive methods by addressing market barriers. In doing so, the Associate will develop strong relationships with various teams within CHAI, as well as with pharmaceutical suppliers and key opinion leaders.

We are seeking a highly-motivated, entrepreneurial individual with outstanding analytical skills, problem-solving ability and communication skills.  The Associate must be able to function independently, be flexible, and have a strong commitment to excellence.  CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic.
