Laboratory Services Team
The Research Associate will be a member of CHAI’s Laboratory Services Team (LST). The Research Associate will report to Senior Scientist on LST, and will work closely with members from both CHAI country teams and global teams.
Provision of high quality diagnostic services is one of the leading priorities of CHAI’s Laboratory service team (LST). LST plays the lead role in coordinating work on access to diagnostics, working closely with test manufacturers, governments, and multilateral organizations to lower prices, scale up use of proven diagnostic tools and products that expand service delivery, and accelerate the entry and uptake of new innovative products for HIV, TB, HCV and COVID-19 (among other communicable and non-communicable diseases). LST’s work often catalyzes the market in an environment where funding streams are limited; LST works with high-volume, early-adopter countries to build a healthy, competitive global market for novel point-of-care (POC) and central lab-based products for diagnostics.
