Project background

Health Policy Plus (HP+) is a five-year project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by a consortium of partners, led by Palladium. The project’s HIV activities are supported by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Globally, HP+ works to strengthen and advance health policy to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems in the areas of family planning and reproductive health, HIV, and maternal health.

In Indonesia, HP+ works to generate evidence for policymakers and development partners, and develop capacity of the Government of Indonesia to sustainably finance and equitably provide healthcare services. The Government of Indonesia is committed to the achievement of universal coverage of its national health insurance, Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (JKN), and policy makers must align its programs with JKN funding to reduce duplication, improve efficiency, and ensure sustainability and quality of essential health services, notably maternal and neonatal health (MNH) and HIV. With JKN in implementation for close to 5 years with continually increasing costs, there is growing interest in strategically purchasing services and products though the scheme. With a vibrant private health sector, public-private partnerships are progressively being seen as a way to ensure high quality, affordable products are procured and services are provided through the private sector. To enable evidence-based decision making, policy makers and key stakeholders require data; while the institutions exist with a mandate to generate and analyze data, these institutions lack the full capacity to draw out the health, financial, and policy insights from it.

To this end, HP+ Indonesia is pursuing the following objectives:

Build the Government of Indonesia’s capacity to analyze data and contribute evidence for improved policy and programming
Support government in sustainable financing of essential health services
Establish partnerships with private sector for health

Position Summary

Ensuring the technical assistance provided by HP+ is sustained, impactful, and scalable is critical to the Project objective to support Indonesia’s journey to self-reliance. To this end, HP+ Indonesia is seeking a Technical Advisor for Capacity Development, Learning, and Scaling, based in Jakarta, Indonesia. S/he will be a part of a team supporting the design, implementation, monitoring and documentation of HP+ Indonesia capacity development objectives that contribute to sustainable and adaptive local solutions. This includes working with Jakarta-based project staff and a broad range of Government of Indonesia stakeholders to assess, implement, and document achievement in policy, advocacy, finance, and governance results.

 These HP+ Indonesia goals and objectives will only be met by catalyzing scaled and sustained local capacity development approaches. Specifically, the Technical Advisor will work closely with other team members to ensure high-quality capacity strengthening approaches are implemented, learning materials are shared across the project, and performance improvement is documented, summarized, and disseminated through HP+ communications and other channels.

Responsibilities require familiarity with USAID/Indonesia health initiatives, the tenets and metrics of USAID's Journey to Self-Reliance, the latest USAID guidance on Capacity Development 2.0, and PEPFAR's Local Partners initiative. The position requires growing experience in providing technical assistance to design and implement country-level capacity development efforts. It is expected that the Technical Advisor will design and implement highly successful strategies to bring about systems-level change and improved health outcomes, and importantly, to transition these strategies to local stakeholders at individual, organizational, and inter-organizational levels.
