Re-Adv. FHI 360 Individual Consultant: TBPS-Technical Officer Consultant for SHP Pilot Denpasar

 Terms of Reference (ToR) Technical Officer Consultant for SHP Pilot Denpasar


Tuberculosis (TB) is a major health problem in Indonesia. Although there has been a 19% mortality decline from 2007 to 2017, TB remains the leading cause of death by communicable diseases. The Government of Indonesia has adopted the global commitment to end TB by 2030, and now must decide what to prioritize and how to deliver. From 2017 – 2020 the Center for Financing and Health Insurance (PPJK) of Ministry of Health (MoH) led analytical works of multi-stakeholders (Tim perumus) including development of TB Strategic Health Purchasing (SHP) pilot design.

The Tim Perumus outlined priority service delivery objectives for TB and identified health financing bottlenecks to achieving those objectives. The SHP team supported analysis, formulation and validation of options, and developed recommendations for achieving better TB outcomes using more strategic health purchasing. After finalizing the recommendations, the SHP team looks forward to conducting pilot preparation and implementation in the selected districts from 2020 to 2023. During the design and implementation preparation (ToT on SHP governance manual) period, an observation will be conducted to capture stakeholder concerns and respond to them. It includes gathering insights for the further implementation arrangement.

The Director of Communicable Diseases of the Ministry of Health had selected two pilot districts for TB SHP which are Kota Medan, North Sumatra and Kota Denpasar, Bali. Pilot preparation in Denpasar began in January 2021 and should be completed by the end of Q3 2021. Adjustment to the contracting arrangements are expected to come first at Q4 2021, followed by the implementation of new payment arrangements in 2022.

The design and implementation of TB SHP are supported by two USAID projects – The Health Financing Activity and the TB for Private Sector (TBPS) project.  The Health Financing Activity is responsible for leading design, national coordination and analytical works, and providing technical input to the development of modules related to capacity building and advocacy in regional level. TBPS is responsible for initial assessment at district level, district coordination and facilitation of the SHP pilot process at district level, including personnel support, data collection, and coordination with district authorities related to SHP works.

The Technical Officer Consultant for SHP Pilot will be deployed in one of two selected cities. The officer will be contracted by USAID – TBPS project. Day to day work of the officers will be in coordination with USAID – HFA and TBPS project.
