Market Forecasting Associate, Global

United States
Full Time
Program (Division)
Infectious Disease - Global Malaria

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:


CHAI’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.


Overview of role


CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual to work as a Market Forecasting Associate to develop global forecasting models that project annual procurement of malaria commodities (e.g., bed nets insecticides, diagnostics, and treatments). This position will collect data inputs from global and national partners and collaborators, conduct data analyses and build market forecasting models/tools, create projections of commodity demand at the national and global level, revise these models and outputs as necessary, and communicate findings to global stakeholders. In addition, the Market Forecasting Associate will provide ad-hoc malaria commodity demand quantification and forecasting support to CHAI teams and our government partners. The Associate will be a part of a team that works in close partnership with CHAI country teams, collaborators (e.g., IVCC, AMP, MAP, MMV), multilateral organizations (e.g., The Global Fund, World Health Organization), and partners from national governments.


CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities including resourcefulness, tenacity, independence, patience, humility, and strong work ethic. The successful candidate must have excellent communications skills and cultural sensitivity, as s/he will be working closely with global and country partners. The successful candidate will have exceptionally strong analytical skills, including a solid fluency with analytical software package(s) (e.g., MS Excel, SAS, STATA, SPSS, R), and will be capable of conducting rapid quantitative analysis and communicating such analysis on a regular basis in a clear and concise manner to colleagues and partners. The successful candidate will be able to function efficiently in a semi-independent setting, and thus will be a self-motivated individual capable of managing multiple tasks at once and making sound independent decisions regarding data analysis.

  • Build and validate global forecasting models projecting demand for malaria commodities in both the public and private sectors, generate outputs, and draft communications pertaining to these analyses
  • Liaise with partners to collect quantitative data and incorporate their analysis/insights into the finished product
  • Conduct ad-hoc analysis of market trends using public datasets (e.g., DHS, MIS, MICS)
  • Provide analytical support on forecasting and quantification of essential malaria commodities for CHAI country teams and government partners;
  • Collect and track updates to national procurement and supply chain management plans, as they pertain to malaria commodities in countries where CHAI operates; and
  • Attend and participate in key partner meetings
  • Bachelor’s degree required
  • Minimum of 3 years of professional experience in a demanding private sector environment, such as strategy consulting, health commodity market intelligence, or public sector advisory position
  • Experience working in an international context and/or entrepreneurial environment
  • Exceptional written, oral, interpersonal, organizational, and problem-solving skills
  • Ability to think strategically and anticipate future consequences and trends
  • Ability to work well both independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team
  • Strong work ethic, integrity, credibility, and dedication to CHAI’s mission
  • Ability to be effective, calm, and flexible in high-pressure situations, to handle multiple tasks simultaneously and to effectively prioritize
  • Ability to communicate effectively with people of varied professional and cultural backgrounds
  • Proven ability to function in a fast-paced work environment
  • Demonstrated ability to work with a sense of urgency and timeliness
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook)
  • Ability to travel 25% time


  • An MPH, MS in public health, or experience working in public health, particularly with an analytical focus (epidemiology/statistics)
  • Experience using advanced analytical software (e.g., SAS, STATA, SPSS, R)
  • Experience working in developing countries, particularly on health-related issues
  • Experience working in pharmaceutical or medical device market research, market intelligence, wholesale distribution, or commercial strategy
