Consultant - Health Systems Assessment at the International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Posted on Mon 30th Aug, 2021 - --- (0 comments)

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.

The IRC has been present in Nigeria since 2012 when the organization responded to flooding in Kogi state. In response to humanitarian needs resulting from the ongoing conflict in the country’s northeastern states, the IRC currently operates in eight sectors (health, nutrition, WASH, protection/rule of law, child protection, women’s protection and empowerment, education, and economic recovery and development) based out of six field offices in Northeast Nigeria

We are recruiting to fill the position below:

Job Title: Consultant - Health Systems Assessment

Requisition ID: req19801
Location: Nigeria
Sector: Health
Location: Nigeria
Employment Type: Part-Time
Employment Category: Consultant
Country Program: Nigeria, HeRoN project/ Borno, and Yobe states
Proposed Start Date: 30th September 2021
Duration /Length of consultancy: 60 days

Lafiya-HeRoN Project Overview

  • The Lafiya-HeRoN project is a Health consortium partnership of three organizations led by the IRC, with Action Against Hunger (AAH), and Society for Family Health (SFH) the other 2 partners.
  • The consortium aims to ensure that crisis-affected communities in Borno and Yobe states have meaningful access to quality primary healthcare and nutrition services in the immediate term, while also contributing to the sustained capacity of health systems strengthening at the LGA level.
  • The overall outcome of the HeRoN project is that people, with a particular focus on women, girls, and other marginalized groups are protected from and treated for the main causes of morbidity and mortality.
  • To achieve the project outcome, the project theory of change will address three main areas: access and quality, demand and behavior change, and health systems strengthening.

Rationale of the Intervention

  • The Lafiya-HeRoN project aims to sustainably strengthen the health system in Yobe and Borno in its locations of intervention so that in the long run it can prevent and respond to shortfalls such as drug availability problems, low or unreliable salaries, and key equipment shortages and additionally, develop a project sustainability approach that is responsive to the prevailing context.
  • The covid-19 pandemic posed a challenge to the HeRoN project at the inception phase, delaying the conduct of a Health systems assessment which would include a Political Economy Analysis (PEA) and a Social Network analysis (SNA).
  • The PEA will include a mapping of power structures and procedures around health systems management and service delivery to understand the root causes of service delivery problems.
  • The SNA will be carried out to identify the individuals, gatekeepers, state ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) and organizations, known or perceived to be important within the HeRoN project implementation locations who would be able to promote sustainable health systems strengthening and drive positive behaviour change for service uptake at the Primary Health Care facilities.
  • This health systems assessment will be led by an external consultant, in collaboration with the HeRoN program leadership as well the IRC HQ’s Governance Technical Advisor.
  • The intent is also for relevant key project staff to actively participate in the health systems assessment to optimize their local knowledge and provide for a first community-level entry and relationship building.
