Health Management Information Systems Specialist

The South-Sudan Health Pooled Fund Programme has been extended for another two years, from April 2016 to March 2018. The two-year programme extension (HPF2) will focus on consolidating gains made during the first phase and laying the ground work for a further phase of support from 2018. HPF2 will continue focusing on Health services delivery and health system strengthening.

A robust Health Management Information System (HMIS) is the foundation for planning and managing health services. Without an HMIS in place it is impossible to monitor and evaluate programmes for their achievement towards set results. The redesign of HPF in this second phase provides an opportunity for increased focus on HMIS for informing the integration of all programmes from community level up to county, state and national levels to achieve project results.

The HMIS Specialist will lead specific actions across all counties in the eight former states of EES, WES, CES, WBG, NBG, Warrap, Unity and Lakes to ensure a rigorous system of data collection, compilation, analysis and display throughout both service delivery and in communities – focussing on use of the information collected for planning and managing the health services at local level. The HMIS Specialist will be part of the HSS team of experts and work closely with the M&E Manager.
