Associate, Health Financing

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.

Since 2012, the health financing program in Zambia has been supporting the government to improve resource allocation, financial management, and service delivery outcomes. In April this year, Parliament passed the National Health Insurance (NHI) Act with the stated aims of providing for sound financing of the health system, universal access to quality insured health care services, and the set-up of an associated agency and fund.

CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding technical capabilities to support the Ministry of Health (MOH) in the early stages of the NHI design and implementation. The Associate will report to the Health Financing Program Manager and will work closely with the Health Financing Unit at MOH to generate evidence needed to make critical policy decisions on insurance roll-out.


  • Partner with CHAI staff and the MOH in the design of the NHI reform and other related policy issues
  • Gathering evidence and conducting analyses to inform key policy decisions on the benefits package design for the insurance reform, estimating resource needs against resources available and supporting a prioritization process
  • Supporting the development of a more routine benefits package design process by identifying capacity gaps in health technology assessment, as well as strategies to address them
  • Supporting the development of more routine actuarial analyses by identifying capacity gaps in the government agency, as well as strategies to address them
  • Supporting national capacity building to ensure institutionalization and sustainability of this work
  • Supporting generation of evidence to inform key design decisions on insurance systems, including the provider payment mechanism, accreditation systems, implementation structures, and information, communications and technology (ICT) systems
  • Support MOH management and technical capacity by working directly with the Health Financing Unit at the national level
  • Liaise with MOH and stakeholders working in Zambia, coordinating and participating in technical working groups
  • Leveraging external expertise, working with universities, partners and other public insurance schemes to respond to key strategic questions
  • Documenting Zambia’s experience for donors, stakeholders and other governments
  • Other responsibilities as assigned by CHAI leadership and the MOH


  • Bachelor's degree in quantitative subjects such as mathematics, statistics, actuarial science, economics or acquired advanced quantitative skills through work or other experiences
  • Advanced degree in above related fields an added advantage
  • 5+ years of professional experience in demanding, results-oriented environments in the public sector and/or private sector (e.g., management consulting)
  • Excellent problem solving, analytical and quantitative skills, including Excel-based financial modeling and attention to detail
  • Experience working in health insurance and/or public financing in developed or developing countries
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to achieve consensus amongst stakeholders
  • Ability to navigate ambiguous and complex processes and be flexible
