VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

Title: Program Manager, Monitoring Evaluation and Learning

Job Location: Kigali, Rwanda,

Overview

The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to our mission of saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries. We work at the invitation of governments to support them and the private sector to create and sustain high-quality health systems.

CHAI was founded in 2002 in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic with the goal of dramatically reducing the price of life-saving drugs and increasing access to these medicines in the countries with the highest burden of the disease. Over the following two decades, CHAI has expanded its focus. Today, along with HIV, we work in conjunction with our partners to prevent and treat infectious diseases such as COVID-19, malaria, tuberculosis, and hepatitis. Our work has also expanded into cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and other non-communicable diseases, and we work to accelerate the rollout of lifesaving vaccines, reduce maternal and child mortality, combat chronic malnutrition, and increase access to assistive technology. We are investing in horizontal approaches to strengthen health systems through programs in human resources for health, digital health, and health financing. With each new and innovative program, our strategy is grounded in maximizing sustainable impact at scale, ensuring that governments lead the solutions, that programs are designed to scale nationally, and learnings are shared globally.

At CHAI, our people are our greatest asset, and none of this work would be possible without their talent, time, dedication and passion for our mission and values. We are a highly diverse team of enthusiastic individuals across 40 countries with a broad range of skillsets and life experiences. CHAI is deeply grounded in the countries we work in, with majority of our staff based in program countries. Learn more about our exciting work: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org

Program overview:

Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) involves tracking the progress of programs, making adjustments and assessing the outcomes. Equally challenging is the use of this information to foster change within the organization. With an effective MEL system, CHAI would be able to: a) track progress of project implementation; b) make timely adjustments as necessary during project implementation; c) discover unplanned effects of programmes and judge the impact that has been made on the lives of the citizens. Major workstream under MEL portfolio will be:

 

 

 

 

  1. Monitoring is a continuous process used to track progress of project activities, identify day-to-day issues through process monitoring, and provide timely information to management and stakeholders for informed decision-making and course-correction.
  2. Evaluation is a process for ensuring and assessing the effectiveness, relevance, efficiency, impact, and sustainability of interventions. It is performed periodically, and its scope differs from case to case—it can be formative or summative.
  3. Learning is a key success factor for refining programming by adding value for improvement, revising strategies, and updating plans and frameworks based on key lessons learnt, findings and recommendations. Learning primarily contributes to generating knowledge products, disseminating information, and helping both internal and external programme/project stakeholders use adaptive programming.

Program overview

The Government of Rwanda strives to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by enabling equitable access to quality health services for their population as outlined in the Fourth Health Sector Strategic Plan (HSSP IV). This commitment is made against a backdrop of rising health care costs and uncertainty around the future availability of donor funding. While Rwanda is often cited as an example for UHC in Sub-Saharan Africa, in part due to high rates of enrolment in the Mutuelles or CBHI scheme; the challenge will be to sustain these gains. Acknowledging this, the Government aims to employ effective, equitable, efficient and sustainable health care financing approaches and inform reforms of existing financing mechanisms including the national insurance scheme.

 

 

 

 

CHAI Rwanda’s Sustainable Health Financing (SHF) and Primary Health Care (PHC) program works on a day-to-day basis with Government leadership in the Ministry of Health (MoH) and Rwanda Social Security Board (RSSB). The goal of our program is to support the Government to sustainably finance health and improve access and quality of health services for all Rwandans to achieve the UHC targets. This includes defining priority services for the population; mobilizing and pooling resources for health; and improving the way those resources are spent to improve quality of care while controlling costs.
