Consultants - Public Health Spending at World Health Organization (WHO) - Sokoto

Posted on Fri 23rd Aug, 2019 - --- (1 comments)

World Health Organization (WHO) is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends.

We are recruiting to fill the vacant position below:

Job Title: Consultant: Improving Efficiency of Public Health Spending at National and Sokoto State through Public Finance Management Reforms

Ref Id: 1903990
Location: Sokoto
Grade: No grade
Contractual Arrangement: Individual service contractor
Contract duration: 35 days
Organization: AF_NGA Nigeria
Schedule: Full-time

  • To achieve more health for the money through Public Finance Management reforms including Program Based Budgeting (PBB), thereby creating a replicable model of PFM reform in the health sector.
  • Nigeria is currently not on track towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC). The sub-optimal performance of Nigeria’s health system can be attributed to the poor financing of the required investments for delivery and management of health services. With General Government Health Expenditure (GGHE) as a percentage of the General Government Expenditure (GGE) at 5.9% (Federal), 4.2% (States), and 3.8% (LGAs), Nigeria is still far from Abuja Declaration of 15% spending on health.
  • Available evidence suggest that favorable macro fiscal dynamics, reprioritization and efficiency savings are the most potent ways of expanding fiscal space for health in Low-and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). Addressing inefficiency in health sector could prove very useful as competing priorities of government could make it difficult for the health sector to fully benefit from favorable macro fiscal dynamics and reprioritization.
  • Between 30-40% of health resources is wasted and common areas of inefficiency include, Human Resources for Health, commodity procurement and supply management and health system organization. Demand side strategic purchasing which ties spending to purchase of needed services that are most effective has been recognized as potent tool for enhancing efficiency of demand-side financing. However, the bulk of government spending in Nigeria is channel through supply-side as the health insurance penetration is still very low. Therefore, the need to prioritize supply-side strategic purchasing cannot be overemphasized.
  • Adjusting Public Financial Management (PFM) structure by migrating to Program Based Budgeting which allows linkages between health funding and health outcomes is a promising approach for allocating resources to program areas that will bring highest level of impact and provide opportunity for efficient budget execution and revolutionize budget tracking.
  • While World Bank and other partners have provided support that enables some states to develop administrative code as part of advancement towards International Public Sector Accounting Standard (IPSAS), states are yet to develop program code that will enable Program Based Budgeting and where program code exist it’s not used as the basis for budget, allocation, execution and monitoring. Another related PFM initiative in the horizon is Integrated Financial Management System (IFMS) which among other things, will ensure migration from paper based to fully automated financial accounting and reporting.
