The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries, while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance. For more information, please visit: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org
CHAI has been working in India since 2004 in close partnership with and under the guidance of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) at the Central and States’ levels on an array of high priority initiatives aimed at improving health outcomes. Currently CHAI works across projects to expand access to quality care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis-C, tuberculosis, cancer and immunisation.
Mumbai District Tuberculosis Control Society (MDTCS) is a society registered under the Bombay Public Trust Act, implementing Revised National TB Control Programme (RNTCP) in Mumbai.
India has the highest burden of Tuberculosis (TB) in the world, accounting for more than 27% of the global TB incidence. The changing epidemiology of TB within Mumbai is characterized by the disproportionate accumulation of disease in certain vulnerable populations often concentrated in vulnerable settings, resulting in a TB & DRTB incidence higher than in other urban and rural areas.
Mumbai has provided an example of improved urban health services, in terms of scaling up the administrative capacity of the programme, as well as investing in the delivery of services through the Mumbai Mission for TB Control. With the changing epidemiology, availability of new diagnostic modalities, treatment and adherence technologies, Mumbai is moving towards TB free Mumbai by 2025. Focused activities have been strategized to eliminate TB in Mumbai by 2025.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding credentials for the role of M&E Lead. The individual will report to the City TB Officer and support the Mumbai District TB Control Society in monitoring and evaluation of TB free Mumbai initiatives across the city. She/he will develop necessary tools and processes and support the City TB Officer and District TB Officers in monitoring various TB Free Mumbai initiatives. She/he will coordinate closely with the City TB officer and other key stakeholders.
M&E Lead Position
The M&E Lead will empower district officials to monitor TB free Mumbai initiatives and drive decisions on scaling up of activities across the city.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding credentials, strong analytical abilities, and communication skills. The candidate must be self-driven, entrepreneurial, and adaptable and have a high level of comfort with ambiguity. They will be expected to work closely with RNTCP staff and work independently with limited oversight. They must be able to push the thinking of program staff and drive results. CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities: resourcefulness, responsibility, tenacity, independence, energy, and work ethic.
