The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) was founded in 2002 on the principle that it was morally unacceptable that millions of people were dying each year from treatable diseases. 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 strengthen and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance. 

CHAI is establishing a new team to identify and incubate programs across its entire portfolio that generate significant health impact through highly cost-effective programming. This 'Maximum Impact Incubator' team has the exciting and challenging aim of evaluating and prioritizing the most cost-effective and scalable opportunities for new programs aligned with the Effective Altruism philosophy of maximizing the benefit of available resources. 

The Technical Advisor will help lead the team's efforts to quantitatively evaluate potential programming according to how the most impact can be achieved per dollar spent. They will work closely with the Incubator Program team, CHAI program and country teams, academics, and other stakeholders to conduct rigorous analysis of prospective programs.  Activities will include comprehensive and critical literature reviews and expert interviews to evaluate health impact of candidate interventions, assessments of program costs and key cost drivers, cost-effectiveness modeling and analysis, identification of priority gaps for in-country data collection and investigation, and synthesis into guidance on a program's potential impact at scale. They will be responsible for serving as a thought leader and expert to others on the team that have complementary non-technical backgrounds.
