TweetThis! Deputy Country Director, Clinton Foundation - New Delhi, India

Closing date: 30 Jul 2009
Location: India - New Delhi

Background on the William J. Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative

Since 2002, the Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative (CHAI) has been assisting developing countries in implementing large-scale, integrated HIV care, treatment and prevention programs.

The Foundation is currently active in Africa, the Caribbean, Asia and Eastern Europe. In support of national HIV/AIDS programs, the Foundation provides technical assistance, mobilizes human and financial resources, and facilitates the sharing of best practices across projects. The ultimate objective in each of these countries is to make high-quality HIV/AIDS care and treatment available to all who need it, and to develop replicable models for large-scale programs in other resource-poor settings. The Foundation provides assistance to governments in areas such as training of health professionals, procuring and distributing medicines, upgrading laboratories, establishing effective patient information and monitoring & evaluation systems, and overall program management. The Foundation has also negotiated agreements with leading pharmaceutical and diagnostic testing companies that have lowered the cost of AIDS diagnosis and treatment in the developing world by 50-80%, thereby enabling governments to scale up anti-retroviral therapy (ART) programs for their citizens rapidly.

To accomplish its aggressive goals, CHAI has placed cross-functional teams on the ground in its partner countries to provide governments with the support they need to quickly and aggressively scale-up treatment programs while strengthening the healthcare systems. CHAI's country teams work in partnership with the government, world-class HIV/AIDS clinicians and researchers, and other stakeholders to identify the key obstacles to scale-up and to develop simple and sustainable strategies to overcome them.
