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.
HRH is a key pillar of HSS around which all the other five pillars are linked. All the HSS work that has gone into HPF1 was meant to build the capacity of the Human Resources for Health in order to provide a skilled workforce to plan, manage and implement health services. HRH is more than just HRIS, which is an information tool to Plan – Do- Check and Action (PDCA) in the planning, managing and development of HRH. CGA has been confined to the first two steps (PLANNING and DOING) to produce a data base of all the human resources in the MOH. Little has been done on the bulk of the HRH i.e. CHECKING and taking ACTION of the cycle so data is generated by technicians but not used for health impact. This aspect requires the skills of a trained HRH specialist. This broader function has been the crux of the work done under the HRH pillar of the HSS through HPI and now needs specialised technical expertise going forward.
The expert will be part of the programme team based in Juba, either near (or within) the Ministry of Health headquarters or in the HPF Office. The expert must be available to carry out field trips throughout the country as required by program activities.
This role will be full time from January 2017 to March 2018. Please send a brief cover letter (no longer than 2 pages) detailing why you think you would be suited to this role and include your annual salary expectation in GBP. Please also send tailored and maximum two-page CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st December 2016.
