Lowongan USAID Jalin - Maternal Neonatal Health at the Workplace Rapid Program Assessment (URGENT PLEASE)

*Maternal Neonatal Health at the Workplace*
*Rapid Program Assessment*
*Program Reviewer*

*USAID Jalin:* In September 2017, the United States Agency for
International Development (USAID)/Indonesia initiated the USAID Jalin
Project, a five-year activity contributing to the reduction of preventable
maternal and newborn deaths—a priority recently reconfirmed by the
President of Indonesia. The overarching problem that Jalin strives to
resolve is that the quality of care accessible to mothers and newborns is
uneven across the country, in both public and private facilities, and at
both primary and secondary levels of care. Jalin uses a whole of market
approach to improve maternal and newborn health (MNH) quality of care in
public and private, and primary and secondary facilities and to strengthen
efficiency and effectiveness of the emergency referral system at community
and facility levels. In close collaboration with the Ministry of Health
(MOH), the Jalin Project works in the following provinces: Banten, Central
Java, East Java, North Sumatra, South Sulawesi, and West Java.

*Women in the Workplace:* In 2018, Central Statistics Indonesia recorded an
increase in women’s participation rate in the labor force to 55.4 percent.
There are 46 million female laborers in Indonesia, of which 35.3% work in
Garment, Textiles and Footwear. Central Java, East Java, Banten and West
Java have the highest proportion of female workers in Indonesia.

Factory jobs are a preferred option for young women from low-income
families. For working pregnant women, however, these jobs can limit their
access to health services as regular antenatal (ANC) and postnatal (PNC)
check-ups are usually offered in health centers (Puskesmas) during working
hours. Women are often dismissed from work for matters related to family
planning, and following childbirth or maternity leave. Workplace programs
can address and raise awareness of these issues and help protect women
workers’ rights which can improve worker productivity and retention rates
for the businesses. Additionally, these programs can improve access to
essential health services which can contribute to better MNH outcomes, a
finding of the CCPHI Case Study ‘Working Together to improve the health of
workers and the community in Indonesia’ .

*USAID Jalin Solutions: *USAID Jalin contributes to improving MNH in the
Workplace aiming to protect women’s rights – especially with regard to
their reproductive health (menstruation, pregnancy, delivery, and
breastfeeding) and to further protect them from high-risk conditions that
might put their fertility, pregnancies and newborns at risk. As a part of
broader private sector engagement approaches, and as local solutions
derived from co-creation with stakeholders in the provinces in which USAID
Jalin works, the Project is supporting three MNH in the Workplace programs
in Central and West Java. Each of these programs aims to improve female
workers’ awareness and knowledge about MNH. However, the three USAID Jalin
pilot programs are implemented in collaboration with different partners and
leverage different approaches. Jalin plans to collaborate with VF
Cooperations (VFC) to expand the MNH at the Workplace program into their
factories. A rapid assessment of the different Jalin approaches is needed
to help inform and ultimately tailor a program for VFC.

To support the development of this program, Jalin will contract a team of
two consultants to collaborate and review the status of the three MNH at
the Workplace programs currently administered (including strategy,
stakeholder engagement and tools).  This assessment will review their
similarities, differences, strengths and weaknesses. The assessment takes
varying needs and circumstances of the different program settings into
account to document the tailored implementation strategies. At the end of
the assessment, recommendations for a strengthened MNH at the Workplace are
to be developed.

The assessment will cover three different program models in West and
Central Java and includes site visits to the respective factories at
several different locations.  Consultants will work in close collaboration
with Jalin’s regional teams under the guidance of the Senior Technical
