(“CHAI”) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems and expanding access to care and treatment in the developing world. CHAI’s solution-oriented approach focuses on improving market dynamics for medicines and diagnostics; lowering prices for treatment; accelerating access to lifesaving technologies; and helping governments build the capacity required for high-quality care and treatment programs. Since its inception, CHAI’s programs have helped more than 11.8 million people in more than 70 countries have access to CHAI-negotiated prices for HIV/AIDS medicines, saving the global health community billions of dollars.

CHAI is a trusted advisor to governments worldwide, helping them transform the way they provide health services. In Vietnam, CHAI works with a number of departments in the Ministry of Health to help reach national HIV, TB, hepatitis, and malaria targets. Established in Vietnam in 2006, CHAI has emphasized a sustainable and integrative approach to health systems strengthening premised on a close partnership with government to build national capacity.
CHAI’s team in Vietnam consists of a dynamic core of 12 staff in addition to resources available at the regional and global levels. Through the National Institute of Malaria, Parasitology and Entomology (NIMPE), CHAI has been helping the Ministry of Health since 2015 to accelerate towards malaria elimination in Vietnam.
The Malaria Surveillance Officer will help accelerate Vietnam’s drive towards malaria elimination by helping national, regional, and provincial counterparts to strengthen surveillance systems. This work will focus on strengthening active and passive surveillance systems, especially to apply new real-time case-based reporting and investigation tools, to collect, analyze and interpret data, and to help make intervention adjustments as needed. The work will be especially focused on supporting development of a new national Malaria Management Information system (MMS) and include developing dashboards to facilitate such data analysis and interpretation.
Support CHAI, the National Institute of Malariology, Parasitology, and Entomology (NIMPE), the two regional Institute of Malariology, Parasitology, and Entomology (IMPE), provinces, and other MOH agencies, hereafter the National Malaria Control Program (“NMCP”), to strengthen the surveillance system appropriate for a malaria elimination response.
