Health Governance Consultant

Background

The USAID MENTARI-Primary Health Care (MENTARI-PHC) is a five-year project that aims to improve the access, quality, and management of primary health care (PHC) in 15 districts in the two provinces of South Sulawesi and East Java by scaling up an approach to improving health governance, strengthening learning, and engaging communities and civil society in primary health care. MENTARI-PHC supports the Government of Indonesia (GOI), especially the Ministry of Health (MoH), in rolling out Integrasi Layanan Primer (ILP- “Integrated Primary Health Care”), which MOH launched in August 2023 as part of the health transformation agenda, moving from curative to preventive care.

MENTARI-PHC aims to achieve the GOI’s PHC’s transformative agenda in the targeted districts in East Java and South Sulawesi by 2029. USAID MENTARI-PHC will deliver the objective through three intermediate results: IR 1: “Improved sustainable access to quality-of-service delivery across the continuum of care/life cycle” through improvement of referral systems and community care networks for all citizens; IR 2: “Enhanced PHC learning to improve program and policy” by addressing critical challenges for PHC implementation and adopting best practices; and IR 3: “Improved management and performance of health systems to enable and sustain PHC in Indonesia” through better governance of PHC services with strengthened community engagement and social accountability.

MENTARI-PHC is implemented by Muhammadiyah’s public health unit, MPKU, with FHI 360 as a sub-awardee who will strengthen MENTARI-PHC work by building MENTARI-PHC team’s capacity to successfully manage direct USAID funding and support community empowerment and multi-stakeholder engagement to improve primary health care in Puskesmas and Posyandu, under IR 2 and 3 above. The active involvement of community members in the health sector has shown to improve primary health care services by providing better outreach putting social pressure on health workers to meet local expectation and provide concrete data and user-informed health solutions.

To support MPKU and local implementing partners, FHI 360 will provide advanced training and mentoring. MENTARI-PCH is now looking for a Capacity Strengthening and Health Governance Consultant to support the Capacity Strengthening Manager and the MPKU Team Leader in preparing and delivering a suite of technical assistance offerings that strengthen the organizational capacities of MPKU and targeted partners and supports multi-stakeholder engagement and community empowerment.
