Job Title: Consultant - TB Public-Private Mix Facilitator

Job Identification: 100585
Location: Adamawa
Job Schedule: Full time

Job Description

  • The World Health Organization declared Nigeria a high burden country for tuberculosis (TB), multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB), and TB-HIV, in part because of its low case detection rate. Improvements in TB case notification would contribute to an easing of Nigeria’s TB burden while also preventing the further spread of the disease.
  • To improve case notification, Nigeria’s National TB and Leprosy Control Programme (NTBLCP) is working to ensure that high-quality TB screening, diagnosis, and treatment services are available in both public and private sector health facilities.  
  • In support of these goals, the USAID-funded Sustaining Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) Plus program is working across Nigeria to increase TB case detection and treatment through private sector approaches.
  • In line with the International Standards for TB Care and Nigeria’s National Strategic Plan (NSP) for TB Control, SHOPS Plus is mandated to increase TB case notification by ensuring high-quality TB care through the entire TB service provision cascade in the public-private mix (PPM) settings. SHOPS Plus aims to increase the systematic screening of OPD attendees in clinical facilities and walk-in clients in stand-alone laboratories, community pharmacies (CPs), and patent and proprietary medicine vendor (PPMV) outlets.
  • TB case detection will increase in private facilities with the prompt identification of presumptive TB, access to high-quality diagnostic services, and prompt treatment of diagnosed TB patients.
  • To rapidly scale up and maintain the coverage of high quality TB services in the private sector in select states across Nigeria, SHOPS Plus is engaging private facility leadership in and strengthening technical and program support to select private sector facilities.
  • Program support includes mentoring of clinicians and other facility staff, closely monitoring TB service provision and reporting, and identifying and removing bottlenecks to TB detection and treatment.

  • Provide on-the-job mentoring to private facilities: The TB PPM Facilitator will maintain a regular presence in private facilities, to ensure that private providers are adequately skilled in providing high quality TB services.
  • Support data quality assurance: The TB PPM Facilitator will work with the Expansion States Coordinator and the Expansion States M&E Officer to support in data quality assurance activities.
  • Engage Facility Leadership: The TB PPM Facilitator will meet with facility leadership to support the improvement of TB service delivery in visited facilities.
  • Identify and flag non-performance: The TB PPM Facilitator will notify SHOPS Plus of non-performance and suggest appropriate corrective action.
