4. Job Title: Private Sector Desk – Mapping Consultant

Job ID: 13-10818
Location: Nigeria-Abuja
Grade: Consultant
Group/Office: PDG (Program Delivery Group)
Dept/Unit: PDGGEN – Program Delivery Group
Project/Program: A576 – PMI – S
Overview

  • Nigeria’s health system has been likened to a two winged bird. While the public sector as represented by the FMOH, its parastatals and agencies is the first wing, the second wing is the private sector represented by a wide array of diverse investors, funders, donors and healthcare providers of all cadres. Over the years, the nations’ health system has benefitted continuously from an infusion of funding and various forms of support in different thematic areas through partnerships and collaborations as envisioned in the National Public-Private Partnership (Health-sector) Policy (2005) – resources mobilization and health financing, human resources for health, service delivery, pharmaceutical and other health commodity manufacturing, importation and distribution. A major beneficiary and typical example of these public-private partnerships (PPPs) in the health sector is the National Malaria Elimination Program (NMEP) with visible influx of private sector partners and their continuous involvement in NMEP programs.
  • However, much of these private sector engagements are under-reported while their contributions are inadequately captured in annual program reports. Whereas, NMEP has the statutory mandate as a national program to formulate and facilitate policy and guidelines, coordinate the activities of partners (including private sector entities and other stakeholders), its coordination mechanisms and institutional capacity to effectively account for all private sector engagements under its purview are suboptimal with resultant missed opportunities for maximizing private sector contributions to malaria elimination in Nigeria. Thus, it becomes imperative to support NMEP develop or update a standardized and harmonized inventory of all private sector entities (either as investors, donors and service providers) currently engaged as a means to improving NMEP program planning, implementation, monitoring and coordination with emphasis on Malaria Case Management through the CM, SME and PM branches.
  • In view of the above, PMI-S intends to conduct (in collaboration with NMEP) a desk-mapping of all private sector entities currently engaged with a view to identify them, determine the nature, duration, scope, opportunities and effectiveness of engagement and gaps inherent in these partnerships and use the lessons learnt to develop an implementation guide towards future operationalization of existing engagement strategic plan with the private sector. Essentially too, the desk mapping will serve as a capacity building tool for relevant NMEP technical staff in building skills and competencies in planning, implementation and evaluation of public – private partnerships in the health sector while making recommendations from findings to shape future engagements to promote result-oriented and effective collaborations with the private sector in tandem with global best practice and national strategic health plan.
  • The desk-mapping exercise will consist of a comprehensive desk review and listing of current private sector engagements, qualitative interviews with focal persons and designated officers from the NMEP branches (National coordinator’s office, PM, CM and SME) and interviews with selected key private sector stakeholders.

Specific Responsibilities

  • Submit a concept paper, and a work-plan detailing the methodology, and process that will produce the expected deliverables.
  • Conduct a comprehensive desk review/mapping of existing engagements.
  • Develop questionnaires and other interview tools to collect information.
  • Conduct qualitative interviews (KIIs) with key designated staff on private sector issues for PM, CM and SME and where necessary with the Branch Heads, Malaria Technical Director and National Coordinator’s office (see Table 1 below).
  • Conduct qualitative interviews (KIIs) with key stakeholders/representatives of private sector entities (e.g. CAMA, PSHAN, Dangote Foundation, Professional associations of healthcare providers) (see Table 1 below).
  • Collate, and analyze information from questionnaire administration and produce draft reports in line with the stated objectives.
  • Share draft and obtain inputs from NMEP branches and relevant subcommittees and PMI-S technical team.
  • Review the private sector engagement strategy, propose an update, and develop a guide for its operationalization.
  • Produce a final report of the entire process, with recommendations.
  • Facilitate a one-day stakeholders meeting to disseminate findings, recommendations, and implementation guide from the consultancy.
