Lowongan USAID Jalin - Bidan Delima Program Field Assessment Team

Bidan Delima Program Field Assessment Team
(Clinical Specialists & Public Health Professionals)

1.    Background

The USAID Jalin Project (hereafter referred to as “Jalin” or the “Project”) is a five-year initiative implemented by DAI Global, LLC and its consortium of partners – IntraHealth, Vital Strategies, and Market Share Associates – to work with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Government of Indonesia, Ministry of Health (MoH) towards the following results:

1)    Improved maternal and newborn health (MNH) quality of care in public and private, and primary and secondary facilities, at scale; and

2)    Improved efficiency and effectiveness of the emergency referral system at community and facility levels, at scale.

Jalin was initiated in September 2017 and is aimed at contributing to national objectives to accelerate reduction of maternal and newborn mortality. Indonesia’s maternal and newborn mortality rates are among the highest in the region and have stagnated in recent years. With rates far above the country’s Sustainable Development Goals targets, the President of Indonesia has recently reconfirmed that reducing maternal and newborn mortality is a top priority for the GOI.

USAID Jalin is focused on addressing the main causes of maternal and newborn deaths, in close collaboration with key stakeholders and in alignment with GOI priorities. The Project is currently working in six provinces in partnership with the MOH, provincial and district health offices, local government, professional organizations, health service providers, civil society, and the private sector.

In the year 3 workplan, Jalin will work with private midwives primarily through partnering with Ikan Bidan Indonesia (IBI) – Indonesia Midwifes Association to strengthen systems for building and sustaining the competencies and quality of care provided by private midwives.  The desired outcome would be to enable these providers to better deliver maternal and newborn services along the continuum of care and to adeptly identify, manage and refer emergency maternal and newborn complications when required.
2.    Purpose

Through this partnership with IBI, Jalin will contract a team of consultants to review the status of the Bidan Delima program.  The Bidan Delima program, led by IBI, is a certification program that aims to improve quality of care of private midwifery services through a quality assurance process.  The review of the program will include clinical quality of care, mentoring/certification, JKN enrollment and its business model to develop recommendations for an enhanced Bidan Delima program model. The assessment will take place on a national level and in select provinces. The Field Assessment Team (consisting of teams to include: one (1) clinical specialist, one (1) public health/ researcher, one (1) notetaker) will conduct clinical and programmatic assessments of the Bidan Delima program in select provinces. To gain an understanding of the quality of care provided at Bidan Delima clinics and the added value of the program, Non-Bidan Delima clinics and midwives will be assessed and intervi
ewed for comparison. Note multiple field assessment teams will be recruited.

The Field Assessment Team is responsible to conduct the assessment of Bidan Delima and Non-Bidan Delima clinics and through Focus Group Discussions to learn about the perception, barriers and opportunities of the Bidan Delima program. There will be one Field Assessment Team assigned per province.  Note multiple field assessment teams will be recruited for this opportunity.
