Job Title: National Consultant to Support Costing of the Digital Health Operational Plan for 2020

Ref Id: 1905472
Location : Nigeria
Grade: No grade
Contractual Arrangement: Individual service contractor
Contract duration: 10 days
Organization: AF_NGA Nigeria
Schedule: Full-time

Background/Objective
The National Health ICT Strategic Framework (NHICTSF) 2015-2020 a sixty-two-page document published in 2016 with the vision: “By 2020, health ICT will help enable and deliver universal health coverage in Nigeria” is the national digital health / eHealth strategy of Nigeria. The activities in the strategy were constructed under the seven components of a national eHealth environment outlined in the National eHealth Strategy Toolkit 2012, a joint publication of World Health Organization and International Telecommunication Union.

The National ICT strategy reflected the situation of the national health system in 2015 towards building a national eHealth infrastructure. The activities described in the strategic document are in the third phase of implementation in 2019 (Year 4) with no significant progress achieved in the first and second phase of implementation. Phase 2 (Year 2 and Year 3) was for deployment, maintenance and support of the national HIE described in the strategic document while phase 3 is to consolidate and carry out a review of progress in implementing the strategic document (Year 4 and Year 5).  While some activities are longitudinal and span the entire course of the timeframe of the strategic document 2015-2020, time has elapsed.

The Strategy was grossly not implemented owing to issues around political will, coordination of stakeholders and funding challenges. In its 4th year, a national outcry was made at various fora including the last National Council on Health. This resulted in the concerted effort of the department of ICT to implement the strategy before it expires in 2020.

The FMOH therefore requests funding and technical support from the WHO to conduct a stakeholder workshop to develop the 2020 Health ICT Operational Plan to guide implementation of prioritized digital health activities in 2020. For this reason, a costing expert is required in addition to the Planning consultant to develop and cost the plan to translate as an investment framework for Health ICT in 2020.

Specific Tasks

  • Support development of the National Digital Health Operational Plan for 2020
  • Lead the costing of prioritized activities for 2020 Digital Health activity implementation.

Required Skills, Qualifications, and Experience
Education:

  • Essential: Post Graduate degree in Public Health or other related field.

Experience:

  • 10 years’ working in the health sector in a government or non-governmental organization with evidence of support in developing Health-biased Policies and Strategic Plan

Functional Skills and Knowledge Required:

  • Knowledge of the health system situation and stakeholders in Nigeria
  • Demonstrated ability to provide sound methodological and technical advice and guidance to multiple stakeholders and partners
  • Demonstrated ability to work effectively with the National Counterparts-Federal and State Ministry of Health ICT department
  • Demonstrated ability to innovate, integrate, synergize and communicate complex ideas in English, verbally and in writing
